Pros: Efficient.
Cons: We were given a shift gear car. Not driven a shift gear car for a while so it was tricky driving one especially as it is on the left hand drive. We drive on the right hand in Malaysia. Also perhaps some basic explanation.about traffic rules in finland should have been given. We were not aware a time display must be put on.the dash board when parking. We nearly got a ticket written for this as we were totally unaware of this requirement. Good thing the enforcement officer came by a little while after we parked and we saw him approach the car. We ran back to the car to find out what we had done wrong and he kindly explained this

Pros: Pickup was easy and the staff friendly and helpful. I also liked the car, a BMW.
Cons: The rental fee doesn't include any kind of insurance. Also, if you drop off the car when the office is closed, you have to find street parking. And make sure to get familiar with traffic signs, I didn't notice I parked in a no-parking zone, and a $90 ticket was added to my bill.

Great service, bad car
Pros: Easy, fast and efficient rental.no forms or any other rubbish to do at the airport.
Cons: Car was rubbish. Didn't have Bluetooth and the upgrade felt like a downgrade. Bigger car was more expensive but would have preferred a better spec ed lower car.

Top tips for renting a car in Helsinki

  • Not only a major political and economic hub for Finland and the Nordic area, Helsinki is also blessed with astounding landscapes ranging from the sea and the many islands, to the snow-covered mountains in the distance. The best way to explore Helsinki and all of its grand, isolated beauty is with a hire car, letting you escape the beaten track and discover what makes it one of the world’s most livable cities. Also take the time to drive east towards Porvoo and Loviisa, two seaside fishing villages that will give you an authentic taste of the Nordic lifestyle.
  • Helsinki Airport is located within the small city of Vantaa, roughly 20 km (12 miles) from the city center of Helsinki. Use KAYAK to view the best available deals for hire cars at Helsinki Airport. Major global agencies including Avis, Hertz, Budget, and Europcar have counters located in the arrivals hall corridor between terminals 1 and 2.
  • It is a legal requirement to always drive with your headlights on in Finland, whether it be through the darkest nights of winter or the brightest days of summer. Depending on the newness of the car model you rent, headlights may automatically turn on when the engine starts or you may need to manually flick them on in older models.
  • Finnish roads are not only impeccably designed and well built, they also rarely house traffic congestion. Driving wherever you want to go in Helsinki, even the center of town, is a peaceful experience; delays only stretch to ten or twenty minutes at the worst. Be careful if you visit during the winter when roads are covered in snow by reducing your driving speed and provide additional time for braking.
  • Book your rental car in Helsinki at least 3 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Helsinki are around 57% cheaper than other car types, on average
