KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Rovaniemi

  • Rovaniemi is the capital of Lapland and the official home of Santa Claus. As a result, many of the tourist attractions have this as their theme. A great way to make sure you don’t miss anything is to book a car hire in Rovaniemi so that you’re not reliant on public transport and go take yourself wherever you want, whenever you want. A visit to Santa Claus Village and a trip on the Santa Claus Express are virtually mandatory, and are especially magical experiences at night. With a hire car at your disposal you can also stay in the Ice Village that Lapland Hotels build on a different theme each year. It’s about a 2-hour drive from Rovaniemi.
  • Rovaniemi Airport has access to plenty of car hire services, so it won’t be any hassle to pick up the car that you’ve booked for your trip. Avis and Europcar have offices in the terminal, as do Sixt, Hertz and a few local brands. They’re all situated in the main terminal, and from there the car park is right outside the terminal exit for ease of accessibility, particularly in the icy weather of northern Finland.
  • Without a doubt, the biggest adaptation you’ll have to make when you’re using car hire in Rovaniemi is that of getting used to driving on roads that are sometimes almost literally made of ice. This isn’t to say that you’ll go sliding all over, as the roads are well surfaced except when they’re completed iced over, merely that the feel of the car takes a little while to get used to. Needless to say you should keep the speed to the minimum you need to travel at too.
  • It would be an exaggeration to imply that Rovaniemi has even a mild rush hour, but the fact is that the town is spread out over a large geographical area, so there is never any part of town where the traffic condenses. The only resemblance of traffic is right in the town centre itself, but for the rest of the area there shouldn't be any issues. You’ll likely always be able to drive to exactly where you want whenever you feel like it and not have to be concerned about any delays.
  • Book your rental car in Rovaniemi at least 7 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Rovaniemi are around 45% cheaper than other car types, on average

Be ready to drive on ice in winter. (duh) Like not just somewhere. Everywhere. The tires are equipped with studs, but be super weary and carefull.

Don't forget to fill up the fuel tank and keep the receipt when returning the car.

FAQs about renting a car in Rovaniemi

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Rovaniemi?

    The obvious choice for Rovaniemi car hire is to go with a 4x4, simply for the extra grip it will afford on the roads, not necessarily in which to go off-roading. Since you won’t have to worry about any traffic you can go as big as you like on this, and make sure that everyone has plenty of room and a good view out of the windows. Smaller SUVs are also popular up here, especially the 2x4 varieties. Of course it’s equally feasible to get a hatchback or a similar economy car if you’re visiting alone or as a couple.

  • What’s the speed limit in Rovaniemi?

    Speed limits in Finland are consistent across the country, so you’ll have to be aware of two main ones in Rovaniemi. The speed limit in residential areas and the town centre is 50km/h (about 30mph). There are sign posts to this effect in those areas. In the outlying, more rural parts of the town if you’re on a wider road the speed limit increases to 80km/h (about 50mph).

  • Where are the best places to park in Rovaniemi?

    There’s a universal parking fee that covers the whole of the centre of Rovaniemi, with ticket vending machines everywhere. You need to put the ticket on your dashboard so that it is easily visible through your windscreen. The cost is around €1.40 (around £1.20). Once you’re beyond the centre of town, parking is free, but not recommended as it will be a long walk in from there.

  • How much is the price of fuel in Rovaniemi?

    The average price of fuel in Rovaniemi is $12.56 per litre over the past 30 days. Filling up a tank of uel costs between $151 and $201, depending on the car size.

Ok attitude and services

Cons:

We were a group of 4 from the States. Just had a very poor experience with Sixt. 1) Sixt charged me 200 more euros out of no where 2) I paid damage waiver separately and Sixt charged me again on top 3) I never requested top cover but they charged me this. 4) They do not have my requested vehicle at the beginning and created so much hassle 5) Please do never rent with sixt.
