Rent a car in Espoo with Europcar

The second largest city in Finland, Espoo is located in the south of the country, not far from Helsinki. Situated between the Nuuksio National Park and the Baltic Sea, Espoo offers the best that both city and country life have to offer. Using your hire car you’ll be able to explore both to your heart’s content.

The Europcar car rental experience in Espoo

Our two rental stations in Espoo are both located within 10km of the city centre and close to National Road 51 which links conveniently with National Road 1, the main route between Helsinki and Turku. So wherever you’re travelling from or to, our handy offices will help you on your way.

Being part of the Helsinki Region Transport system, reaching us in Espoo by public transport is simple, with a number of Metro stops being within a 15 minute walk of both rental offices.

Whether you need a car for a day, a week, a month, or even longer, our flexible short and long-term car hire can help. Plus, with our competitive no-nonsense pricing and no hidden charges, you can be confident you’re getting a good deal.

Driving around Espoo for a couple of days, or spending a week making your way north to the Arctic Circle – wherever you’re going, we can help you choose the best car for your journey. From the compact Volkswagen Up to the spacious Opel Vivaro, a Europcar hire car will get you there in comfort.

And for a totally flexible service, you can return your car to a Europcar station at your destination if you’e planning a one way trip – meaning you don’t have to worry about a return journey. What are you waiting for!

Driving in Espoo

Driving around Espoo is generally simple and roads are not too busy. Drive on the right side and overtake to the left.

Speed limits are 50km/h in built-up areas, 100-120km/h on motorways, and a variable limit of between 80 and 100km/h on other roads.

When parking in the city, always park in the direction of traffic and at least five metres from any pedestrian crossings and junctions. Most city centre parking spaces need to be paid for at a street vending machine with the ticket displayed in your car. In some areas, parking is free but requires a parking disc to be placed on your dashboard displaying your arrival time.

Once you’ve got used to the driving regulations in Espoo, enjoy the journey in your hire car!

Discover Espoo and surroundings by car

If you enjoy being beside the seaside, Espoo is a perfect destination! With 58km of shoreline in the municipality, you can get in your hire car and be enjoying beach life and water sports in no time.

An hour and a half from Espoo is Hanko, a lovely town with a mix of architectural styles reflecting its history of disputed ownership by the Russians and Swedes in the 17th and 18th centuries. Full of excellent cafes and restaurants, it’s a perfect destination for a relaxed day of eating, drinking and lazing on the beach.

For something more cosmopolitan, head two hours north to Tampere. You’ll easily fill a day exploring the Särkänniemi Theme Park, the Duck Park, and Pyynikki Park. And if you were a fan of the Moomins back in the day, the Moomin Museum should definitely be on your itinerary!

Turku is another nearby major city and can be reached in less than two hours.

With your hire car you can explore all of this and more!
