Top tips for renting a car in Lapland

  • Today, big names in the global car hire industry operate Lapland car rentals in major towns and airports of this Finnish city. Most rental vehicles have manual transmissions, so double-check your booking if you want the automatic transmission. It is worth reserving your preferred car in advance, and that's why KAYAK was created to help you with early booking. You must produce a valid driving license and credit card at the rental office. You should also have fully comprehensive insurance coverage. Request to buy the cover from the car rental agency, and the amount will be added to your rental rate.
  • Leave with a full tank if you're traveling further than your local shopping center in Lapland. The next fuel station might be 200 km (125 miles) away. For instance, you will hardly come across a petrol station on your way to the Swedish border from Kilpisjärvi. As you drive further north towards Norway, the stretch between fuel stations gets longer.
  • The law requires you to have safety equipment in your car- fire extinguisher, first aid kit, torch, spare bulbs, and warning triangle. Make sure you have them before leaving a car rental location. In case of a breakdown at night, you need a reflective vest or jacket. If you notice other drivers flashing their lights as they pass, they are not warning you about the police- it is probably about a moose or reindeer so you can slow down. Call 112 during an emergency.
  • The experience of driving in winter can be unique and exciting, depending on how well-prepared you are. Lapland car rentals always provide winter tires from December through March. Still, you must drive with caution because those tires are not a silver bullet. Black ice is expected on road surfaces as the cold season approaches. Pay attention because sometimes it seems like a dry road or water, yet it's frozen.

  • Should I rent a car in Lapland, Finland?

    We recommend renting a car in the Finnish Lapland to enjoy the flexibility of adventuring into little-known places. With a personal vehicle, you can stay as long as you wish in a cool destination. Driving in a remote village like Ivalo necessitates a sturdy car model. With a good SUV, you can visit places with reindeer sleigh rides, cross-country, and downhill skis. You can also use a rental car to visit the campsites at Ukonjarvi to witness the Nothern Lights. The price of Lapland car rentals depends on the vehicle class you choose. Many models are fuel-efficient and have heated seats. Before booking, consider the number of passengers and the size of your luggage.

  • What is driving like in Lapland?

    Most places are remote, and distances are long. You're more likely to come across tractors in the countryside. You don't need to worry about traffic jams, but there will be lots of roundabouts to navigate. Beware of traffic signposts without text except for the stop sign. So, it's good to familiarize yourself with Finnish road signs and rules before you drive off with a rental car. Keep right and maintain 80 km/h (50 mph) in the cities or 50 km/h (30 mph) in residential areas. In most towns, you have to pay for parking with coins, a mobile app, or a credit card through a ticket machine. Use a parking disc that shows the amount of time allowed to park there. You'll be penalized for exceeding the time.

  • How old do you have to be to rent a car in Lapland?

    The minimum driving age in Lapland is 18, but you must be 21 years old to get a car rental. Drivers who are 16 years old can only drive microcars at 45 km/h (27 mph). Carry your documents throughout the trip, i.e., ID, driver's license, passport, and proof of insurance. You can use a driving license from any EEA or EU country. Although the International Driving Permit is recognized, it is not required.
