Car hire Sandefjord


Sandefjord is a historical, but also a modern town and was important in the Viking age. From that time, several remains have been found. Most famous is the Gokstad ship, from which there is a replica in the harbor. The original is in the Vikingskipshuset in Oslo. Furthermore, Sandefjord used to be a whaling city. Nowadays, the ship Southern Actor is a whaling museum. Today, Sandefjord is a popular summer holiday destination for Norwegians, who rent a summer house there or moor their boat in the marina.


The town has a population of 45,000.


Sandefjord is located in the southeast of Norway on a rugged coastline formed by two headlands: Østerøya (Eastern Island) and Vesterøya (Western Island). Because of this unusual shape, the municipality of Sandefjord has no less than 146 km of coastline. West of Western Island is the Sandefjord Fjord, east of this peninsula is the Mefjord. Further east lies the (much longer and bigger) Oslo Fjord. The coast near the city is very diverse: sandy beaches, coves and rocky islets (skerries).


The construction of merchant ships – once very important for the local economy – has completely disappeared from Sandefjord. However, there are still yacht building companies. Nowadays, Sandefjord’s economy is very diverse: from a paint factory to a chocolate factory, and from a brewery to an oil and gas company. Furthermore, the three largest online stores in Norway have their headquarters in Sandefjord. Also, the city and its surroundings are a summer tourist destination, especially for Norwegians.


Sandefjord's airport is located ten kilometers northeast of the city center. Sandefjord Airport is mainly used by budget airlines as an alternative for Oslo Airport. The airport is easily accessible by rental car via highway E18. The exit to the airport is clearly indicated.

Public Transport

Public transport is provided by VKT (Vestviken Kollektivtrafikk). The company operates connections in the provinces of Vestfold (in which Sandefjord is located), Buskerud and Telemark with buses, regional trains and ferries.

Traffic and Parking

In summer it can be very busy in Sandefjord, especially near the marina. For the rest you can easily drive around in your rental car. It is even the most ideal means of transport to explore the area around town. In the center you have to pay to park in the street. Do not exceed the parking time: there is strict control.


There are several (small) hotels in Sandefjord. Apart from that, the accommodations consist of apartments, summer houses and campsites. If you would like to visit Sandefjord in summer, we recommend you to book your accommodation well in advance.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Hire the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
