Choosing a Car Rental in the Faroe Islands

Rent Your Car has a lot to offer as a car rental provider in the Faroe Islands. Customer support is highly prioritised and we know that a fast reply is key. We answer live chat, email or phone promptly. Other than that, we offer flexible pick-up and return options.

Getting around in the Faroe Islands

It is easy to get around in the cities and the villages, as well as the highways between them. The Faroe Islands has very little traffic which makes it fast to get around the islands. To go from one end to the other takes approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes without stopping. However, tourists love to stop on their way to take photos of the beautiful landscape!

The infrastructure is incredible

The infrastructure is very good with 18 islands all connected with tunnels, sub-sea tunnels and ferries. It is impressive that there are only 50.000 people to pay for it. Although the infrastructure is good today, the Faroese people work on improving it even more. Currently, there is a sub-sea tunnel being drilled between Streymoy and Sandoy. Another one just got finishes between Tórshavn, Strendir and Toftir where there is a roundabout under the sea. This is the only sub-sea tunnel in the world with a roundabout.

Be aware of sheep on the road!

Take care when driving on the highways as it can happen that a sheep or two might walk on the road. Our nation is known for the large amount of sheep compared to the population. There are approximately 100.000 sheep spread out over our 18 beautiful islands, which is twice as much as the population.

Our clients say

After exhaustive research I found this company to offer the most competitive rates and I was able to score even lower prices during a May campaign they had so make sure you check out the website for any promotions. Despite a couple of hiccups they're staff were professional and managed to sort out any problems I had in a professional manner. I'd recommend this company if you're looking for a reasonable car (e.g. a VW Up!) and don't want to worry about "what ifs" as they can help you quickly both via email and phone!

We choose RentYourCar because of the great offer they had on a compact SUV (VW T-Roc). It was the same price as an economy small car in comparison to other car rental companies on the Faroe Islands. Pick up and drop off took less than 5 minuters and the customer service was excellent. Thank you for the awesome car and experience, hope to rent from you again! / Seph
Located close to the harbour, admittedly Rent Your Car is a little hard to find as it’s a fairly new company but boy were we glad we found them! We were dealt with by a gentleman called Tór who was the epitome of Faroese friendliness. He was incredibly helpful, making the whole car hiring process a breeze and was able to sort us a car ( to our last minute surprise) on the day with prepaid tolls for tunnels and car WiFi. The new car (Mazda automatic) was great to drive and we were able to drop it off at the airport as easily as when we picked it up in Tórshavn. Stars all round for this fantastic start up! We all agree it made our trip to the Faroes.

We got a little car for our weekend trip. It was easy to pick it up at the airport and leave it after the trip as well. The car was brand new and in a perfect condition. Overall great service! Thank you. 👍
