Top tips for hiring a car in Finland

  • In Finland, having a credit card is commonly required when hiring a car. Most car rental companies ask for a credit card as a form of security deposit. This allows them to cover any additional costs such as fuel, damages or fines. However, some car rental companies may accept debit cards or even cash deposits, but it is always advisable to check the specific rental company's policy beforehand to ensure a hassle-free experience.
  • Drinking and driving laws in Finland are strict. The legal blood alcohol limit is very low, at 0.5 g/l. For those renting cars, it is crucial to be aware of these regulations to avoid legal consequences. Violators may face heavy fines, licence suspension, or even imprisonment. It is strongly advised to refrain from drinking and driving altogether to ensure safety and compliance with the law while using car hire services in Finland.
  • When driving in Finland, there are several basic laws to follow. Children under 135 cm or 12 years old must use a child seat or booster. You cannot use your mobile phones while driving unless you are using a hands-free device. In Finland, vehicles drive on the right-hand side of the road. It is essential to adhere to speed limits and follow all traffic rules and regulations to ensure a safe and smooth driving experience while using car hire in Finland.
  • When using car hire services in Finland, it is recommended to choose a car suitable for the prevailing weather conditions. Given the country's cold climate and potentially snowy roads, a four-wheel-drive (4WD) or an all-wheel-drive (AWD) vehicle is highly recommended. These types of cars offer better traction and stability, ensuring safer and more comfortable driving experiences, especially during the winter months. Additionally, renting a car with winter tyres is advisable for better grip on icy or snowy surfaces.
