We also recommend for your own peace of mind to consider hiring a GPS to ensure you can navigate around Helsinki with ease (ask at the rental counter for details).

Traffic jams are relatively unheard of in Finland, at least in the scale that visitors from busier countries and / or towns would consider normal. However, do be aware that instead of stopping due to vehicle congestion that you will instead of have to be wary of wild animals roaming the road.

An easy way to recognise foreign tourists at Finnish petrol stations is where they leave their car after filling when they go into the station to pay – the Finnish move their vehicles to the side for politeness while many visitors leave their vehicles at the pump. This is a common courtesy in Finland.

When travelling on the motorways, the speed limit is 120 km/h and 100 km/h on major highways however be aware that in the winter months the general speed is limited to 80 km/h. The speed limit outside the city and in built-up areas is 50 mph unless started otherwise. For your own safety it is important that you obey the local traffic and speed restrictions.

Yes, you can book additional extras or equipment through our online booking process. You can reserve a child seat, baby seat, additional driver and GPS (SatNav). Some additional options can also be booked at the Green Motion rental branch. These additional options will be pay on arrival.

Do I need to leave a deposit when renting my car?

Yes, in all cases the main driver will be required to leave a deposit which will be taken by the method of pre-authorisation from the credit card presented. The level of pre-authorisation taken is dependent on the type of insurance purchased and the agreed excess. Typically the level of pre-authorisation required will mirror the level of agreed excess. In the cases where the hirer has selected a zero excess option, a small deposit / pre-authorisation will be required to cover any traffic violations including parking and speeding offences that may occur while the hire vehicle is in the custody of the hirer.

We would ask you to note that all pre-authorisation’s are released on the completion of the hire following a satisfactory review of the vehicle and its condition noting that any damaged caused to the vehicle while out on hire will be subject to cost with the relevant amount being removed from the pre-authorisation.

Typical deposits / pre-authorisations can range from £150 GBP to £1500 GBP dependent on the car type, age and driving experience of the driver and agreed excess.

Can I reduce my excess?

Green Motion Helsinki Railway Station offers their rental customers the opportunity to reduce their excess by purchasing one of our excess reduction packages. Each package provides different benefits ranging from reduction in excess to zero excess. Please ask at the rental counter for more information.

Which payment and debit cards does Green Motion accept?

In most cases, each Green Motion location will accept most major credit cards including Visa and MasterCard and in some cases, American Express may be accepted.

In relation to debit cards (Visa), these are typically accepted for the payment of rentals but unfortunately we cannot secure a deposit / pre-authorisation using a debit card and as such require a valid credit card for the pre-authorisation of the deposit. In addition we are unable to accept cash either for the payment of the rental or for the security deposit.

We would ask you to note that in the event that we are unable to guarantee funds relating to the security deposit on your credit card we will be unable to rent a vehicle to you.

How long do I wait for the release of a deposit / pre-authorisation?

Green Motion Helsinki Railway Station does not hold the pre-authorisation / deposit in our bank accounts. The pre-authorisation is a block of the agreed amount held against the credit card presented by the issuing bank. As soon as the vehicle has returned and we are happy with the condition of the vehicle, we action a release of the pre-authorisation.

The time taken by the issuing bank to release the pre-authorisation on the credit card varies immensely dependent on the bank and the country of issue. Typically, most pre-authorisations / deposits are released within 5 – 14 days from the return of the rental car.

In the event that you feel a pre-authorisation has not been released with the prescribed time frame it will be necessary for you to make direct contact with the issuing bank as Green Motion Helsinki Railway Station has no jurisdiction in this matter.

Is roadside assistance included with my rental car?

In most cases, Green Motion Helsinki Railway Station offers full roadside assistance and recovery within the cost of renting a vehicle. Further information on roadside assistance is available at the counter prior to renting.

What happens if my journey is delayed?

In the event that your journey is delayed, please endeavour to contact Green Motion Helsinki Railway Station. We will reserve your car until you arrive for up to 2 hours from the original pick up time. It is important that you make direct contact with the branch if you feel that your delay will exceed 2 hours to avoid us treating the rental as a “no show” and us reselling the rental car.

​Am I able to return my car before Green Motion Helsinki Railway Station opens?

You are not authorised to return your rental vehicle outside office hours unless prior agreement has been made noting that in the event that agreement has been authorised, it is subject to strict terms and conditions.
