Guide to Hiring a Car from Oulu Airport, Finland

Oulu, located in Northern Finland, is an intriguing blend of natural beauty and modern innovation. As a significant tech hub and a gateway to the Finnish Lapland, Oulu is teeming with experiences waiting to be explored. To make the most of your time in this vibrant northern city, hiring a car directly from Oulu Airport is a sound decision.

Hiring a Car at Oulu Airport

Oulu Airport, being the second busiest in Finland, is equipped with a variety of car rental agencies catering to diverse travel needs. Before hitting the road:

  1. Advance Booking: Especially during high tourist influx, it's recommended to book your vehicle in advance. This ensures not just competitive rates but also guarantees the availability of your preferred vehicle.

  2. Documentation: A valid driving license, an international driving permit (for non-EU citizens), and a credit card are generally required for car rentals in Finland.

  3. Vehicle Familiarization: Given Oulu's northern location, winters can be severe. Familiarize yourself with the car's functionalities, especially if it's equipped with winter-specific features.

Exiting the Airport & Road Conditions

  • Exit Roads: Upon exiting Oulu Airport, you'll find yourself on Route 815, which connects you to the main Highway 4 (E75) leading to Oulu city and other parts of Finland.

  • Road Conditions: Finnish roads are commendable for their upkeep and quality. However, during winter, Oulu and its surroundings can experience snow and icy conditions. Ensure your vehicle has winter tires, which are a legal requirement from December to February.

  • Tolls: Like most of Finland, Oulu does not have toll roads, but always check parking rules and fees when you're in the city center or other popular destinations.

  • Traffic: Oulu's traffic is moderate compared to bigger cities. Nonetheless, during the typical rush hours of 7-9 am and 3-5 pm, slight congestions might be encountered.
