Hertz in Finland

Finland, one of the smallest of the Nordic countries, is an undiscovered gem if you’re looking for a destination that’s a little off the beaten track. This delightful country has a varied landscape of lakes, plains and mountains that makes driving here a real pleasure. Hertz Car Rental in Finland has offices in many of the country’s major towns and in cities such as Helsinki, offering top quality vehicles that let you explore the region comfortably and at your own pace.

Finland straddles East and West, maintaining trading links with both Western Europe and the states of the old USSR. There’s a strong sense of national identity, and with coastlines, lakes, forests, and offshore islands to explore you’ll have no end of fabulous driving experiences to look forward to.

Rules and regulations for Driving in Finland

Hertz Car Rental has over 68 car rental branches in Finland, all of them at key locations close to airports, major hotels and railway stations, and hiring a car in Finland is a stress-free and straightforward matter.

Although you’ll find that driving on Finnish roads can be different to what you’re used to in terms of traffic regulations and speed limits, bear a few key facts in mind and you shouldn’t have any trouble. You’ll need to carry with you a full driving license issued in your country of origin, and to rent a car in Finland you must be at least 18. You’ll also need to have proof of identity and insurance, and an International Driving Permit (IDP) if you come from outside the EU.

You can be issued with a hefty on-the-spot fine in Finland, even for not carrying certain items of equipment in your car, including a warning triangle, first aid kit, and reflective jacket in case of breakdown.

Finnish roads are in general very well maintained and with a GPS on board you’ll have little trouble in getting around. The signage is also excellent, and there are just a few maybe unfamiliar traffic regulations in Finland that you have to take on board if you haven’t driven in the country before:

• Depending on your type of vehicle, you’ll need to use deflector stickers or adjust your headlights manually
• You must carry a reflective jacket and a warning triangle in your vehicle at all times
• In daylight and away from built-up areas, you must use passing lights at all times, even on motorways.

Special attractions

The Vaasa Car and Motor Museum in the west of Finland on the Gulf of Bothnia is one of the largest of its kind in the country. Home to veteran cars, motorcycles, and engines from all periods, it also has a collection of old radios and repair shop equipment. The Automobile & Road Museum Mobilia in Kangasala, to the west of Tampere in southern Finland, is a privately-owned automobile museum with a great collection of legendary rally cars.

If you’re eager to get out of a city like Helsinki and explore the country by car, there are a number of license auto routes to choose from. The Rovaniemi – Kilpisjarvi route is especially to be recommended because of the quality of the roads and the breathtaking scenery. It takes you to the northern tip of the country, where the mountain scenery at the border between Norway, Sweden, and Finland is uniquely beautiful.

Quick Information:

Minimum car rental age: The minimum age to rent a car is 19 years old. Drivers under 25 may be required to pay a young driver surcharge per rental.

Average speed limits: The average speed limit is 50km/h in built-up areas and 120 km/h on the motorways.

Documentation: You’ll need to carry a full and valid driving license with you at all times, along with proof of insurance, proof of ID, and proof of ownership. It is also recommended to carry an International Driving Permit (IDP) to support any non-EU license. Fines can be hefty for failure to carry the required documents and can be imposed on-the-spot by traffic police.

Priority: Vehicles approaching an intersection from the right have priority unless the signage indicates otherwise. Emergency vehicles have priority at all times, even when they approach from the left.

Refueling: There are over 2000 petrol stations across Finland, and even in the remoter towns and villages you’ll have little or no trouble finding one. Just be aware that in rural parts of the country, and especially in Lapland, there may be up to 100km between them. Stations are normally open between 7.00am and 9.00pm during the week and for shorter hours on weekends. Some are open 24/7.

Parking: Parking and stopping regulations are in line with normal international practice. Parking lights may be required to be switched on during the night in poorly illuminated areas, and wheel clamps can be applied in cases of illegal parking exceeding 2 days.
