Helsinki Car Rental Mini Guide

To get into Helsinki look for flights to Helsinki Vantaa International Airport. Once there you can pick up your Rhino rental car and make the short 15-minute journey south to the city itself. This will save you a fortune on hiring a taxi. If you have got a cheap Ryanair flight to Tampere or Tallinn in Estonia, inquire about the possibility of having different pick up and drop off points for the vehicle if this is more convenient. All these airports are connected to Finland by express highways.

Russian Tsars built Helsinki to look like St Petersburg. They were obviously successful as Finland’s capital has been used by film crews who are trying to replicate the Russian city.
