If you cause personal injury or property damage to other road users with your rental car, the liability insurance pays for this. Because this insurance is so important, it is included with all rental cars offered on our portal. However, make sure that the sum insured is at least one million euros. If you rent a car through our site, you can choose to take out these other insurance policies:
If you rent a car, protect yourself optimally by a fully comprehensive insurance without excess. You can get into your car and enjoy the ride with peace of mind. Even if you cause damage to the rental car, the car rental company's claims against you are already covered by the insurance amount. There are therefore no further costs to you . If you return a damaged car, the car rental company will deduct the excess from the deposit, but your car dealer will refund the money afterwards.
Before renting a car a deposit is due, because the car rental insures itself with it. You can find out how much the deposit is for your chosen rental car in the rental conditions. The full amount will be deducted from your credit card when you pick up your car and refunded when you return it.
On the road in Finland with the one-way rent
The one-way rental allows you an individual travel route . For example, drive a rental car across Finland from Rovaniemi in the north to Helsinki in the south. A road trip to the Finnish city of Kajaani is also very nice. One-way rental allows you to pick up the car at one station and return it to another.
With an EU driving licence you can easily take part in road traffic in Finland. When you pick up your rental car at the car rental company, you must present it. This also applies to accompanying persons who register as additional drivers on site. All registered additional drivers are insured and are also allowed to drive the rental car. Activate the "Additional driver" filter in our search. This provides you with a practical list of all car rental providers for which an additional driver is already included in the total price. There are no further fees for you and you can travel for two at a particularly low price.
Rovaniemi is known as official home of Santa Claus. You can visit it all year round with the whole family in the festively decorated Christmas village. This is located about ten kilometres outside the city centre. Here Santa Claus receives wishes and is photographed with visitors. The village also houses a gnome workshop and the Christmas post office, where anyone can send postcards to family and friends. Decide for yourself whether they should be delivered immediately or for next Christmas. You can drive by car to Christmas village or be taken by snowmobile.
Near Rovaniemi there is a reindeer farm and a husky farm which you can easily reach by rental car. Here you can not only admire the majestic animals, but also take part in unforgettable safaris with husky or reindeer sleds.
