      Thanks for that. Good to know that cash isn't quite dead yet over there.

      In Denmark heading back to Sweden soon. Were told we need to wash the car before return. Where did folks do this in G Borg? Don't want a brush type machine for obvi reasons. Thanks

      Hans at the FDC specifically told us that we did not have to wash the car! We returned the car on 5/31/19-unwashed!

      Additionally, with as little gas as possible, since that is the way it will be shipped!

      We did wash the car as it was filthy. We had about 1/4 tank of gas.

      For those recently returned, did Volvo provide an emissions standard sticker for your car before you left the FDC? From what I've read, you need this to drive into many cities to demonstrate that your car is low emissions. I also think you need one for every country you enter (eg, we'll have to stop in Germany to buy one so we can drive there). What was your experience? https://urbanaccessregulations.eu

      Maybe. When we went to Denmark, we never even went through customs. Stopped at the booth and no one was there. Same thing when we came back to Sweden.

      Also, since I'm on a roll today, did anyone take a ferry from Sweden to Denmark or Germany? I'm seeing that most ferry companies require a registration for the car in order to make a reservation, but not sure I'll get a registration until the day of pick up. Anyone with experience on how to get around that? We're hoping to take the overnight ferry from Malmö to Travëmunde.

      Unless this is really new, we weren't required to have any emissions stickers when we traveled through 8 countries last June. However, Austria requires an autobahn toll decal vignette.

      We reserved our Gothenburg, Sweden to Frederikshavn, Denmark months before we picked up our car at the FDC and were not required to submit any registration information. We booked directly on the StenaLine website and even paid in advance for a buffet dinner on board. Again, this was last June so things might have changed.

      We washed our car in Alingsas but were told we did not have to do so. It will get super dirty on the way over.
