Traffic Information

Traffic Information

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.

Although Finnish architecture is one of the most impressive aspects of Helsinki, the natural world comes close to eclipsing any manmade structure. In this port city, it's easy to reach the small islands which are dotted around as boat trips are frequent, but if you'd prefer to stay on dry land there's still plenty to see. The rocky Alppipuistopark dates back to the early 1800s, it boasts grassy fields, large pools and a picturesque terrace. This is the perfect place for a weekend walk and it often hosts local events. It's a 3.2 mile drive from the city centre.

The flavours of Finland are slowly becoming appreciated across the globe, but are mainly confined to a few specialist eateries. In Helsinki, culinary fans are free to try the traditional yet unusual food combinations in many different restaurants and cafes. From meats like elk, grouse and bear, to forest fruits like cloudberries, and lingonberries, freshly produced ingredients are the norm here. You can even take a few samples home if you pay a visit to the Old Market Hall , or the kauppahalli , during your stay. It's set by the harbour in Eteläranta , just under a mile from the town centre and there is ample parking.

A road connects the island to the mainland, and wandering around this secluded woodland retreat is encouraged.

Helsinki has a thriving business community and a well-planned infrastructure with plenty of roads which lead to hubs like Vantaa. As the location of Helsinki's airport, this district has particularly good connections to commerce parks like Aviapolis, which hosts over 1000 businesses.
