“Very good experience!”

“I ordered a small Ford Ka, the cheapest one. Instead I got the brand new Volvo V60 :) The car was great. There was no crowd at the rental office and everything was perfect. I will definitely choose EasyTerra again!”

Introduction

Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and it is built on small islands in Lake Mälaren. The various parts of the city are connected by bridges. The small Stortorget square is the heart of the very beautiful medieval city centre (Gamla Stan). Of course the streets here are narrow, but otherwise Stockholm is a spacious city: a third of the city consists of water, and another third of parks and other green areas.

Population

The city itself has nearly 800,000 inhabitants, but including the suburbs it has a population of 1.8 million. Nevertheless, Stockholm feels like a small city. A large part of the population (15%) is from other parts of the world. Some areas have a high percentage of immigrants, where even an alternative form of Swedish has developed, the so-called Rinkeby Swedish (named after the suburb of Rinkeby).

Location

Stockholm is located on Sweden's east coast between Lake Mälaren to the west of the city and the Baltic Sea. The heart of the city is situated on 14 small islands that are part of the Stockholm archipelago (Skärgård), a collection of some 24,000 islands off the coast.

Economy

Most of the people of Stockholm work in the commercial service sector or (semi-)government institutions. In the last 20 years, many jobs were created in the high-tech industry. Large employers are, among others, computer giant IBM, electronics giant Ericsson and Electrolux, a manufacturer of domestic appliances.
In addition, Stockholm is the financial centre of Sweden, with the head offices of Swedish banks and insurance companies.
Tourism plays an increasingly important role. Between 1991 and 2004, the number of hotel stays in Stockholm doubled.
There is virtually no heavy industry, which makes Stockholm one of the cleanest capitals in the world.

Airports

The most important airport is Stockholm Arlanda Airport, which is located 45 kilometres to the north of the city. There are connections to all European capitals and intercontinental flights. Ten kilometres to the west of Stockholm lies the small Bromma Airport, which is used above all for domestic flights and short European flights, for instance to Paris and Brussels.
Budget airlines use Stockholm Skavsta Airport, 100 kilometres to the south-west of Stockholm (close to Nyköping). Västerås Airport (100 km to the west of Stockholm) is also used by budget airlines (including Ryanair, with flights to London-Luton).
All airports have a shuttle connection to the centre of Stockholm.

Public transport

Stockholm has an extensive public transport network which consists of metro, tram, bus and some commuter trains. The metro is the most convenient mode of transport. The hundred stations are indicated with a blue T (of Tunnelbana) and the trains are operational from 5 am to 1 am (during the weekend even until 3 am).
In addition, there are many tram and bus lines. The historical tram 7 is of interest to visitors, because it connects the main attractions. Virtually all buses stop at the central bus station (Cityterminalen) and at the train station (Centralstationen) of Stockholm. From there, the long distance buses depart as well.
There are international train connections with Oslo, Trondheim and Narvik in Norway and with Copenhagen in Denmark.
There are ferry connections to Turku and Helsinki in Finland.

Traffic and Parking

Stockholm is located along a few main motorways. The E18 goes to Oslo in Norway (travel time about 6 hours), the E20 to the south-west (Gothenburg, 6 hours) and the E4 to the south Helsingborg, about 8 hours).
Because the city is built on islands, it can be difficult to find your way around. Buy a good city map and study your itinerary carefully before starting your car. In Stockholm there are many restrictions with regard to cars and the speed limits are enforced rigorously (in the city 50 km/h, near schools 30 km/h).
In the old city centre there are no parking facilities. The conveniently located car parks are the Galleriangaraget near the Galleriancomplex (Hamngatan 37) and the car park near the Phus Pub (Slöjdgatan 3).

Hotels

Stockholm has a large number of hotels, youth hostels and bed & breakfast accommodations and campsites. In the old centre, there are a few hotels located in beautiful ancient buildings.
Examples are the hotel Anno 1647 and the Victory Hotel, where the large suites resemble mini-museums. If you want to stay in one of these hotels, you need to book in advance. In the suburbs are larger and more modern hotels.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Rental 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? Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). 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? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
