If you will be arriving at the Helsinki Vantaa Airport, the city is a 30 minute drive away, 14 miles along the 45 route.
Drivers in Helsinki are courteous but like any city, roads can get busy so it's always best to have a Sat Nav when you hire a car.
Parking is divided into three zones, it is widely available but can be expensive. In Zone 1 which covers the centre of town, hourly prices are highest, Zone 3 is the cheapest.
Helsinki has strict laws on speed in residential areas, so drive at a walking pace of around 5mph of you see a sign showing people playing.
As with the rest of Finland, if you are driving in Helsinki between December * 1st and March 3rd* , the vehicle must be fitted with * winter tyres* , but don't worry as we will always take care of this requirement.
Once you're on the road, you can head off to explore this historic and unconventional city. Drop in to the * Ateneum* to see the country's finest art collection, then visit the * Design District* to get in touch with everything upcoming, before enjoying a few moments of tranquillity in the beautiful Sibelius park.
Helsinki is very much open for business, so if you're here for work, the * Opus Business park* in Herttoniemi, the Duetto Business Park in Käpylä and the Health Innovation Village in Vallila can all be reached quickly in our rental cars.
