With more than 14.8 million passengers per annum, Helsinki Vantaa Airport is Finland’s busiest airport in terms of international and domestic passenger air travel.
The airport offers various onward travel options by public transport, but for greater flexibility and freedom there is always car rental - and the airport boasts five official car rental providers with car hire desks located at the airport, while within close proximity to the airport compound there are many more car rental suppliers offering cost-effective travel solutions during a stay in Finland’s capital.
Budget Helsinki Vantaa Airport has a car rental counter in the corridor linking Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. Budget Helsinki Airport can supply a wide selection of vehicles for leisure and business travel. Car rental returns at Finland’s premier airport are handled at car parking facility P3B, where designated car parking spaces are used by all five car rental providers. This car park is well sign-posted.

Budget boasts a great choice of cars at affordable prices - from small, economical cars just right for a young couple exploring the city delights of Helsinki to sturdy SUVs and minivans ideal for a large family on a camping adventure.
Budget’s Mini class can supply cars like the popular Ford Ka, a 2-door vehicle featuring manual transmission and air conditioning as well as having collision damage waiver and theft protection included in the rental deal.
In the Economy class customers will find vehicles like the Skoda Fabia 1.2 and the Nissan Note, featuring automatic transmission and air conditioning, while in the Intermediate class there are choices like the Skoda Octavia, a 4-door model or the Skoda Octavia 1.8 wagon.

Budget also caters for business travellers and the Premium range from Budget offers everything a business traveller might need for an important visit in Finland’s capital. Vehicles from the BMW 5 series are not just stylish, they come with air conditioned and automatic transmission for ease of driving and can seat up to 5 people in comfort.
For longer trips into the interior of Finland’s rugged landscapes there are Standard vans like the Nissan Prima Star, a car with plenty of seating for passengers, space for luggage and camping gear and featuring air conditioned for those balmy Scandinavian summer evenings. The Standard vans boast manual transmission for an easy driving experience.
Budget car hire Helsinki Vantaa Airport offers far greater freedom than public transport - which admittedly is good as far as travelling to the main attractions goes but a little on the sparse side when it comes to exploring the coast, the lake district, the forests and nature reserves or the whole of the Åland archipelago.
Helsinki offers ferry connections to many of the thousands of islets that lie just offshore. It takes a mere 30 minutes to leave the city behind and be surrounded by the most beautiful countryside, filled with magical pine forests, lakes and rivers, wetlands and marshes, sandy beaches and plenty of opportunity to try out canoeing, kayaking, hiking and horseback riding, biking and wildlife spotting. In total, there are at least 6,500 islands to explore, where bird watching is just one of many options to while away a beautiful summer’s day.
Passengers should look out for the tourist information stands dotted around the airport - like the one in the Arrivals Hall 2A. The tourist information office can provide visitors with regional travel brochures, guide books and maps in several languages that showcase all the main attractions and many gems that lie off the beaten track.
The tourist information office opens daily from Mondays to Sundays from 10.00 am to 06.00 pm. There are many local tours visitors can join, where traditional folklore music and dancing, cookery lessons by the campfire and fishing trips are among the highlights.
