    Anyone hired a car in Norway? 11th Sep 17 at 6:26 PM
    We hired a car for a road trip in Norway from Hertz. We've been back 3 weeks today, and still no had a statement for the road tolls. It's automatic in Norway, they charge you after you get home. At the moment we have no idea how much we owe! As you just drive through any toll areas, often without realising.

    Has anyone had this before?

    I hired a car in Norway last year. When I collected the car they gave me the option of paying the tolls at the end of the hire as you are doing, or paying them a set sum per day for an Autopass. When I explained the places we knew we'd take the car, they said it would be much cheaper to get the Autopass. I can't remember the exact amount (something like £14 a day?) but going in and out of Bergen to and from our hotel every day would have cost the same as the daily charge and anything beyond that was effectively "free". I think we paid about £70 for five days and we covered about 800km. I know that paying the tolls would be more expensive than that per km.

    That's a great help thanks, I was hoping it would be under the £100 mark. On the drive into Oslo on the last day we say a sign for £10 then another for £3 just 5 minutes later. I only really remember 1 or 2 other toll signs on other days.

    I was just suprised they haven't billed us yet!

    They aren't all signed. As I understand it, there are cameras all along the main routes and there are special rates for going in and out of cities. We stayed in Bergen and left the city every day and came back in, which would have been expensive on a pay-per-trip basis.

    Wow, it could get pricey then! Let's hope they forget to bill us, we did a road trip from Oslo to bergen and back!
