There is no better way to see everything Helsinki has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your Budget rental car. Stop spending your vacation waiting on the bus, or wasting money here and there with ride-shares or taxis. When you have access to your own car, you can go anywhere you want to go, whenever you want. Make your upcoming trip to Finland more enjoyable with a Budget rental car.
With all there is to do and see in and around the Helsinki area, you'll be wanting to take in more than just your hotel room while on your trip. Whether you are wanting to try that well-reviewed bistro across town or see some of the best local favorites, you'll need your own vehicle to explore as much as possible during your trip. No matter where you end up staying in Helsinki, if you wish to get the most out of your visit, having access to your automobile is a must.
We work with the finest dealers in the world. With a name like Budget, you know they will try to get you the cheapest price. Open for business in Los Angeles in 1959, Budget always works to provide the best prices for its customers.
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your car. However, booking your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
You'll need to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Helsinki is 18. Make sure to review Budget's policies, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals especially.
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Helsinki. Economy or compact automobiles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Helsinki trip can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
In Finland you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Budget requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Helsinki. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your Budget rental with full tank, and you should return it topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Budget.
Helsinki certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at a different location. However, there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
With so much to do and see in Helsinki, having your own vehicle lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to see more of Finland, you can leave when you like, without waiting for your ride to pick you up or looking through a bus schedule.
Before your next family vacation, book your Budget Helsinki car rental and take off to all the items on your itinerary at your own pace. Book through CarRentals.com and hit the highway in Helsinki, Finland.
