    And what better way to see the country...

    Renting through Hertz would have cost £1200 plus whatever BS insurance they force upon me.

    I rented the Tesla for a week for £600 from a peer to peer private rental site. Like Airbnb for cars. Still crazy expensive but everything is in Norway. However a Peugeot 108 would have cost £270, then about £200 in petrol, £50 in rolls etc.

    So in reality it was only a little extra to sack the Peugeot 108 and get a Tesla S 90D.

    There are mileage limits, but I'm allowed 1400km which should pretty much cover my needs.
