      Car Rental Reservation Dependability?

      Norway Jan 26, 2015 at 6:51 AM

      I have a reservation I just booked for two days in late August and two different ports in far northern Norway. They didn't ask for my credit card to take the reservation - a large well known international car rental company. They sent me confirmation emails for each rental day: one in each port. I have noted that on those days car rental reservations are already almost fully booked. My concern is that when I get off the ship, if I'm half an hour late getting to the car rental office, the car I reserved will be gone. There will obviously be high demand. Has anyone had a problem like this? I pointed out my concern to the rental agent on the phone, and he still didn't want my credit card. I remain worried.

    • What do Norwegians (specifically, northern areas) wear during the winter ~ spring?

      Norway 11 hours ago

      Hi!
      I'm trying to plan a trip through Scandinavia when I graduate, and Norway seems to be posing a bit of an issue for me ...

      So I finish university December 2016 and was thinking of departing America maybe mid-March and staying in Europe until mid-May. My thought is for 2 months to go around, a little earlier or later isn't really that much of an issue for me, but most importantly, I really want to see the northern lights, and hopefully also manage my way to Lofoten, Svalbard, the mountains??. I know it'll definitely still be cold around this time in Norway (and definitely Svalbard) and was wondering what kind of clothing the average Norwegian wears?

      Down? Cashmere? Goose down? Wool? Lots of layers? Specific brands?
      I'm located in the NY area so the average winter jacket is ok, but I with my hopes to trek about ... and I was hoping to live in the mountains a few days but I realise that with the weather I'll be encountering, it may not be the best idea ...

      Maybe this is also a little off the mark, but are there specific times (month, time of the month) that gives the best chance to view northern lights? I heard something like too much snow is dense or something sorry I don't know know the science behind it, but it affects its appearance somehow?
      Places? I read all over Norway it's viewable, but best chances? Most nights? Norway is so expensive that I highly doubt I'll be able to spend many days just relaxing about, especially since I want to financially provide for everything.

      I'm also very in love with polar bears (or ice bears, as I know Norwegians call them) in Norway/Svalbard and was wondering how early out in the year should I plan on leaving for Europe for highest chance of seeing them? I'm not sure if I want to go on one of those 10-day cruises (pricey) specifically to seek them out, I'd just like to roam around and see them to their thing, polar bearing around. I read people never see polar bears in the summertime on those cruises, so I assume I need to go when it's still relatively cold? This is a different region, but hopefully someone might know? If not, I'll make another post int he Svalbard section a little later.

      Thank you so much for reading, and hopefully spending time to answer my many questions,
      Jessica
