Finland car hire information

Does Finland have any unique traffic laws?

When driving rental cars in Finland, be aware of unique regulations related to the country's climate. During colder months, between October and April, speed limits are reduced, and certain secondary roads, particularly in the north, are closed to drivers. You must also have winter tyres between December and March. There are many segments where wildlife roams freely, including elks and deer, so always drive defensively, especially if prompted by road signs. By law, you must call emergency services in case of a collision with an animal. Additionally, you must always drive with dipped headlights, day and night, and make sure all passengers wear seat belts. Using a mobile device is prohibited unless it's hands-free. If travelling with children, they must be placed in child seats or boosters. Finally, you should make sure your car hire provider has equipped your vehicle with the following mandatory items: a first aid kit, a reflective vest, a fire extinguisher, and warning triangles.

What are the legal and documentation requirements for renting a car in Finland?

To rent a car in Finland, you must present your driving licence, a valid form of ID, such as a passport, and a debit or credit card. Most car rental companies only sign with people over 21, and they may add a young driver surcharge if you're under 25. You need to have held your driving licence for at least a year for most vehicles, but this minimum may be increased for large or luxury vehicles. Most driving licences are valid for car rental in Finland, but you may need an additional International Driving Permit if your licence isn't in the Latin alphabet. It's common for providers to allow cross-border travel, but you should always check with them first, as there may be extra charges. One-way car hire in Finland is also commonly accepted. Finally, you should always keep with you your driving licence, passport, and rental agreement, in case a police officer pulls you over.

Which areas of Finland have the most traffic?

Finland is relatively free of traffic, compared to other European countries, which makes driving in rental cars a breeze. You may, however, experience some waiting time in big cities at rush hour. For example, roads that can get slightly congested in Helsinki include Runeberginkatu - around the Helsinki Art Museum, Helsinginkatu - around Finnish National Opera and Ballet Mechelininkatu and Porkkalankatu - around West Harbour. The E18 and the Ring I motorways circling the capital are also quite busy. Roads around country borders may get congested, especially around popular holiday travel times: for example, the E8 and the E4 at Swedish borders. Another situation where you're expected to slow down and potentially wait is in areas with roaming deer and moose wildlife, predominantly the southeast and Ostrobothnia. Should other drivers ever flash their lights at you, they may be signalling the presence of animals further ahead.

What are the best scenic roads in Finland?

Some travellers book rental cars in Finland just to visit Lapland: the region famous for dazzling northern lights and the village of Father Christmas. From the town of Kittilä, you can drive northbound through snowy forests and ski resorts, as well as Rovaniemi's Santa Claus Village. Before reaching Kilpisjärvi and Saana Mountain, you'll have key points to hunt for the northern lights, but be mindful that it's easier to spot them at certain times of the year. You can take another road trip with your car hire across the Turku Archipelago Trail. You can make this journey entirely by car, starting from the coastal town Turku. Then, via ferry and bridges, you can visit both inhabited and uninhabited islands, including Rymättylä, Nagu, Pargas, and Hämmärönsalmi. Driving a car hire is the main way to explore this part of Finland, which is ideal for nature-lovers wanting to take in the subarctic island scenery.
