Europcar Joensuu offers a hassle-free car and van hire service conveniently close to the city centre on Merimiehenkatu, a 20 minute walk from the main train station. Joensuu, in the south east of Finland, sits on the northern edge of the Saimaa lake system and offers endless opportunities for outdoor activities such as hiking, boating, and even ice swimming!

Wherever you’re travelling from or to, our friendly and flexible service will get you on your way in no time!

Rent a car or van at Joensuu

Our friendly, flexible service includes daily, weekly and monthly car rental options covering both short and long-term car hire needs. With a simple three-step booking process and highly trained staff, we’ll get you on the road as quickly as possible.

We know that one size doesn’t fit all, and our flexible service lets you choose the best car for your journey, whether you’re planning a long weekend in Joensuu or a fortnight travelling around the country. And because you can drop off your rental car at a Europcar station close to your destination rather than returning it to where you hired it, if that’s more convenient, your journey is made even easier!

From small city cars such as the Volkswagen Up to large family cars like the Volkswagen Golf or even the 7-seater Volkswagen Touran, we really do have a vehicle to suit any journey, whether you’ve packed light or brought along a ton of luggage!

Discover Joensuu and surroundings by car

Joensuu may be less of a tourist draw than Helsinki or Lapland, but it has its own charms and there is definitely plenty to keep visitors entertained. If you prefer to visit a quieter and less touristy city then this is the place for you! Enjoy sightseeing around town – the Carelicum Museum, the Bunker Museum, churches and historical architecture – and venture further out of town to visit the world-famous biathlon stadium or enjoy some cross-country skiing on the many local trails.

But it seems a shame not to make the most of your hire car! Heading out of town, a two hour drive will get you to the most eastern point of Finland and the border with Russia, at Lake Virmajärvi. A rustic tree trunk monument topped with a wooden roof marks the most easterly point in Finland – and the EU - that it's possible to reach. A unique photo opportunity for all you Instagrammers!

An hour north of Joensuu is Koli National Park, a stunning area of protected parks and lakes. Hiking trails are well marked and a map can be purchased at the tourist information point, so exploring the beautiful scenery is made simple. Don’t miss the spectacular views from the top of Ukko-Koli Hill out over Lake Pielinen – climb up the steep steps to the top, or take a gentler path if you’re feeling a bit more lazy!

With your hire car, you can explore at your leisure all that the south east of Finland has to offer.

Driving in Joensuu

Driving in Finland is on the right hand side of the road and overtaking is on 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. Speed limits are displayed on a round sign with a red circle outline.

In Joensuu, as with most Finnish towns and cities, on-street parking in the city centre must be paid for at a ticket machine and the ticket clearly displayed inside your car. The rate is usually 1.40 Euro / hour. Fines are 50 Euros. Outside the centre, you may find free on-street parking, and many shops have their own free car parks.

If you are driving on rural roads, beware of deer and elk crossing roads, particularly at dawn and dusk.

Travel safely with Europcar

As part of our safety program, all our vehicles are rigorously cleaned with organic disinfectants and we do everything we can to offer you a contactless experience.
