Don't spend time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. When you have the keys to your own car, you can drive anywhere you want to go, whenever you want. Make your upcoming vacation to Finland even more enjoyable with a Sixt car rental.
CarRentals.com puts you in the driver seat
With everything to do and see in and around Helsinki, you'll be wanting to explore more than the block your hotel is on while on your trip. Whether you have to try that latest restaurant across town or try some of the best local favorites, you'll want your own auto to see as much as you can during your getaway. Wherever you drive to in Helsinki, if you want to get the most out of your visit, having your own vehicle is a must.
When Martin Sixt created his company in 1912, Germany didn't have a proper network of roads. With forward thinking, like the first worldwide car rental company to let you book via your iPhone, and an obligation on offering first-class customer service, Sixt has evolved into one of the most popular international car rental companies worldwide.
What you need to know before you go
How do I get a Helsinki Sixt car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. However, booking ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What do I need to bring when I pick up my car rental in Helsinki?
Make sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Helsinki?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Helsinki is 18. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Sixt's policies to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Helsinki?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Helsinki. Economy or compact cars are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Helsinki trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Finland?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Sixt in Finland. Many of the major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) generally offer coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Helsinki. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Sixt require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Sixt requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Sixt?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back to Sixt. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Helsinki certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Helsinki.
Can I get a one-way rental from Sixt?
Sixt typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at a different location. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
