Like many other countries in Europe, vehicles travel on the right-hand side of the road in Finland with all overtaking done on the left. Speed limits in Finland range from 50km per hour in the city to 120km per hour on highways. All passengers travelling in the car must wear a seatbelt and child seats are mandatory for those aged 3 and under. Most major cities in Finland have metered parking areas. When there are no meters, pay-and-display parking vouchers must be displayed on the dashboard. These can be obtained from petrol stations.
Auto Europe includes the Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and theft protection in the Finland car rental total prices. The CDW and theft protection reduce the liability and excess of the driver to a capped amount. Fire insurance is also included in the price of your car rental. Auto Europe offers the option to purchase Excess Refund Insurance when you make your booking. If any damage occurs to your rental vehicle during the time it is in your possession, you can be refunded up to $5,000 on your return to Australia.
Famous for stunning wilderness, creative design and cutting edge technology, Finland is a popular destination for travellers in Europe.
