Frequently Asked questions
Can I rent a car in Finland without credit card?
Most probably no; this is because the majority of rental car suppliers only allow payments through credit cards at the time of pick-up. They hold a security deposit on the credit card which is refunded when the rental vehicle is returned in the same condition in which it was picked. So in case you want to pay for the rental car at the time of pick-up through debit card or even cash, give us a call and we will help you arrange a car rental using a debit card. However we can’t guarantee that.
Can I drive a car in Finland with US/Canadian/Australian/UK driver’s license?
Yes, you can rent and drive a car in Finland irrespective of the fact whether you are a resident of US, Canada, UAE, UK or Australia, all you need is your valid driver’s license (DL) issued in your name. Have a word with the car rental company (or read the T&Cs) about whether you need an International driver’s permit (IDP) or not. In case your DL is not in Roman alphabet make sure that if you don’t have the IDP, at least do carry the official translation of your DL.

To rent a car in Finland, the driver needs to be at least 21, & the drivers younger than that can rent cars in Finland but suppliers charge a young driver fee from them for the option. Make sure that you are inputting the correct age at the time of booking (or telling the right age when making a phone booking) because if found underage, the supplier have the right to refuse you the rental vehicle.
