Book car rental in Gothenburg and discover great beaches and natural spas on the fringes of this city. Further afield, quiet roads lead to the rocky islets and picturesque fishing villages of Sweden's west coast – car rental is perfect for exploring here. What's more, rent a car from Gothenburg with British Airways and you'll be insured to drive in nearby Norway and Denmark, too.
Gothenburg's compact city centre overflows with museums, galleries and historical buildings – and is home to a vibrant nightlife scene. The largest university in Scandinavia is here, giving Gothenburg a young and lively atmosphere. The best of the city centre can be explored on foot when here for city breaks, but car rental in Gothenburg is a must for discovering the stunning beauty on the outskirts and beyond.
A short drive and ferry ride will take you to Brännö. Just 15km from Gothenburg lies this pretty island with sandy beaches and a famous open air dance floor. Any of the numerous islands in the southern archipelago are popular places to spend a summer day - for locals and tourists alike.
Marstrand, less than an hour's car journey from Gothenburg, plays host to the Swedish Match Cup of sailing every summer. Dotted around the island are centuries-old forts and buildings - and caves dating back to the Stone Age.
If you're here for a longer holiday, the city of Malmö is around three hours from Gothenburg by rental car. From here, it's a short drive across the Øresund Bridge to Copenhagen, and the chance to discover Denmark's beautiful capital.
