Rent a car in Vaasa with Europcar

The university town of Vaasa sits on Finland’s west coast and is an inviting place to visit with its wide streets, laid-back atmosphere and beautiful coastline. Surrounded on one side by the sea and on the other by scenic countryside, there’s something for everyone in Vaasa. Summer is a great time to visit, when the town comes outdoors to enjoy beach life, restaurant terraces and outdoor festivals. Vaasa is known as one of the sunniest places in Finland, so if you’re after a beach holiday, you’re in the right place!

The Europcar car rental experience in Vaasa

Renting a car at Europcar Vaasa couldn’t be simpler, with our two rental stations conveniently located, one in the city and one at the airport. Our city office is just 2km east of the city centre and a half hour walk from the main train station. If you’re arriving by plane, our rental station at the airport is ideally situated for a hassle-free start to your onward journey.

We know one size doesn’t fit all, so we have an extensive range of car rental models to suit every purpose. If you’re just planning on staying local and exploring everything that Vaasa has to offer, one of our budget models will be perfect for city driving and easy parking – try the compact Volkswagen Up or Opel Karl.

And if you fancy a longer journey, or if you’re bringing the whole family along, you’ll be needing a larger family car, an SUV, or even one of our premium models if you want to travel in style!

If flexibility is key we’ve got the deal for you, with short and long term hire to suit you. For easy and affordable deals and no hidden charges, we can help. Plus, you have the option to drop your hire car off at a Europcar station close to your destination if you only want to make a one-way trip. The choice is yours!

Driving in Vaasa

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 Vaasa 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 Vaasa and surroundings by car

If you’re an outdoorsy person, Vaasa is the place for you! In summer, the nine public beaches provide endless opportunities for swimming, kayaking, paddle-boarding and jet-skiing. In winter, ice-skating, cross-country and downhill skiing are on offer. And all year round you can hike through the gorgeous countryside surrounding the town.

If that all sounds a bit too energetic, why not make use of your hire car and drive 40 minutes out of town to the Kyro Distillery? The distillery bar is open on Saturdays and you can take a tour to view the production process and learn about the history of the company, as well as enjoying samples of the delicious whisky and gin – cheers!

Kids to entertain? An hour and a half away is Huvivaltio PowerPark, a huge 160 hectare amusement park with more than 40 rides and roller coasters, shops and restaurants. But if you’re a petrol head, the main attraction will probably be the outdoor go-karting track, which has previously hosted the Karting World Championship, and the largest indoor track in Europe – are you feeling competitive?!
