Rent a car or van at Helsinki Airport

Whether you’re spending a few days exploring the capital, or you’re driving north to enjoy some winter sports, a hire car from Europcar will get you around in comfort.

A compact city car such as the Opel Karl or Volkswagen Up is a great choice for a couple or solo traveller and perfect for driving around town. If you’ve got luggage and sports equipment to accommodate, you’ll probably be wanting something bigger – the 5-seater Volkswagen Tiguan or the Touran which can seat seven. If it’s a premium vehicle you’re after, the Audi Q5 will get you around in style!

And if you need something more practical for moving bulky items, try one of our range of vans.

Short and long term rental options give you the flexibility to choose a deal to suit you, whether that’s a day, a week or a month. We’ll also give you the option to drop your car back at any Europcar station across the UK, so feel free to travel widely.

With our friendly, flexible service, competitive year-round prices and no hidden charges, it all adds up to a great deal. Rent a car with confidence at Europcar Helsinki Airport.

Discover Helsinki and surroundings by car

So now you’ve collected your hire car, your journey can begin! Are you planning some time in Helsinki? This capital city is a real gem and you’ll enjoy strolling around the broad streets and admiring the historical architecture. But when you’ve had enough of the traditional sightseeing, why not head to the Linnanmäki amusement park for some white-knuckle rides, arcades and attractions? And if all that adrenaline is a bit much, then it’s probably time to indulge in some relaxation at one of the many public saunas around the city.

Just outside Helsinki is Hietaniemi Beach, a beautiful contrast to the city and a lovely place to spend a relaxing day soaking up some sun and watching the world go by. And if you’re feeling energetic, you can go out on the water in a rental kayak.

Fancy taking your hire car further out on the open road? A scenic three hour drive west will get you to the 5,000 year-old Imatrankoski Rapids, where water from nearby lakes has been dammed to provide a spectacular sight each day when the deluge is released.

Driving in Helsinki

Driving around Finland is generally a pleasant experience due to the lack of congestion and beautiful scenery. Remember to drive on the right hand side of the road and overtake to the left. Speed limits are 50km/h in built-up areas, 100-120km/h on motorways, and a variable limit of between 80 and 100km/h on other roads. Speed limits are displayed on a round sign with a red circle outline.

In Helsinki most on-street parking is chargeable – pay at a ticket machine and then display the ticket inside your car. The rate is 1.40 euro / hour. You can move to a different parking space using the same ticket as long as it has time remaining on it. Separate parking arrangements and charges are in place at the train station and airport.

Petrol stations are plentiful and most will accept credit card payment. There are no toll roads in Finland.
