Important information about Helsinki car hire

Many international providers of car hire in Helsinki will allow you to drive cross-border, including Enterprise Rent-a-Car, Sixt, and Europcar. In most cases, you have to seek their permission in advance, and they will likely apply a surcharge for cross-border driving. There are exceptions, though, such as crossing into Norway, Sweden, and Denmark, which some suppliers allow without prior notice. You may also be able to drive your hire car into European Union countries, such as France or Germany, but most suppliers don't let you cross into Russia. The fee you incur for cross-border car hire may depend on the type of car, the time of year and country you're crossing to, and any additional insurance you may need.

While it is possible to arrange car hire in Helsinki with a debit card, most larger providers will confirm an agreement exclusively when it is paid for by credit card. Make sure you read the terms and conditions of your rental agreement carefully before you sign. Some hire companies might accept debit cards at the time of booking but request a credit card upon your arrival at the car hire desk. Whatever card you use, the name on the card must be the name of the driver. Credit cards are considered a safer option for both provider and driver when used to hold a security deposit until the car is returned. Once the hold is released by the provider, it's more straightforward to receive the money back into your account if payment was processed via credit rather than debit card. Security deposits vary between Helsinki car hire providers, according to the duration of the rental, whether it's for luxury or economy car rental, and whether you opt for one-way or cross-border travel.

When driving your car hire in Helsinki, you must always have your dipped headlights on, day and night, and everyone in the car must wear their seatbelts. Although you're unlikely to encounter a major traffic jam in Helsinki or the rest of Finland, you should aim to drive slowly and carefully, as wildlife, including deer, may be roaming about. From December to February inclusive, it's a mandatory requirement to drive with winter tyres, which your car hire provider should offer, usually at a surcharge. Speed limits on motorways and highways are also reduced to 50 mph in wintertime. Finally, you are legally obliged to carry a warning triangle and headlamp converters, so check that these have been provided to you.

When signing a rental agreement at your supplier's desk, you will need your driving licence, a form of photo ID, a payment card, as well as a rental voucher if you've pre-booked your vehicle. We recommend advance booking through momondo for cheap car rentals in Helsinki, as this ensures the lowest rates and secures your preferred vehicle for your arrival. At the time of booking, you must be over 19 and have held your driving licence for at least a year. Usually, a young driver's fee will be applied, and you may not have access to luxury car models or passenger van rental if you're under 25. If your driving licence isn't issued in the Latin alphabet, you may need to provide an International Driving Permit.
