  • Adhere to street signs and avoid jaywalking when traveling on foot
  • Avoid walking or driving along the designated cycle lanes in cities like Copenhagen
  • Hitchhiking is common and reliable, but is illegal along highways
  • Cycling on highways and connecting bridges is not permitted, so use trains as an alternative form of transportation (bikes can be carried on trains)
  • When renting a car, read the fine print carefully as hidden costs can sometimes add 25 percent or more to the original rate
  • If possible, rent cars from Malmo in Sweden, then drive to Denmark as car rental in Denmark is much more expensive
