Rent a car in Oulu with Europcar

Finland’s fourth-largest city Oulu is a quirky metropolis with lots of hidden delights and an off-the-beaten-track charm. Located on the west coast of Finland, the city is an excellent base for exploring northern Finland and travelling into Lapland. And with your Europcar hire you can do just that!

The Europcar car rental experience in Oulu

Enjoy affordable and convenient car hire and a seamless start to your trip at Europcar Oulu from our three rental stations in the city. Our airport office is convenient if you are flying into the city and want to step off your flight and be on your way as quickly as possible. The airport is 14km from the centre of Oulu.

Our City and City Centre rental stations are both conveniently close to the centre of Oulu. The City Centre office, on Ratakatu is just a six minute walk from the main train station, and the City office on Kallisenkaarre is a five minute walk from the closest bus stop.

We have a car to suit you, whatever it is you need it for, and wherever you’re travelling to – just around the corner, across the city or even further afield. Choose a small city car to get you from A to B when you need a budget option for a short journey or local sightseeing around Oulu. And if you’re heading out of town on a longer journey, hire one of our larger family cars or SUVs to get you there in comfort.

Our flexible short and long term hire options, affordable pricing, and choice of vehicles all add up to a great value deal. And for total convenience, you can pick up and drop off at different locations to suit you. What are you waiting for!

Driving in Oulu

Driving around Finland is generally a pleasant experience due to the lack of congestion and beautiful scenery. Remember to drive on the right hand side of the road 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.

In Oulu most on-street parking is chargeable – pay at a ticket machine and then display the ticket inside your car.

Most petrol stations will accept credit card payment. There are no toll roads in Finland.

Discover Oulu and surroundings by car

Oulu, the largest city in the north of Finland, is often used as just a stop-off on the way to the ever-popular Lapland, but that would be to miss the individual charms of this beautiful city. With its lovely waterfront, pretty parks and Nordic design, you can happily while away a day or two soaking up the relaxed atmosphere. The Hupisaaret Islands City Park is a particular joy – wander along the paths and bridges between small islands, enjoying museums, greenhouses, and cafes along the way.

Ready to get out and about in your hire car? Kalajoki beach is about two hours’ drive away and well worth a day trip. Famous for its sandy beach it’s a popular holiday spot for Finns and offers the usual beach resort activities of swimming, snorkelling, surfing, and fishing. But if you’re after something less energetic, head for the spa and sauna for a spot of relaxation!

For something completely different and totally unique, head 90 minutes north into the Arctic Circle to visit the Kemi Snow Castle. This magical castle-shaped hotel is built each winter from snow and ice and lasts until around April when it begins to melt. Stay overnight if you’re feeling brave – the rooms can’t be heated for obvious reasons so you’ll need to huddle under reindeer fur blankets to stay warm!
