Do I have to leave deposit for car rental company renting the car in Helsinki?
On arrival by the local car rental company, you have to provide a credit card in your name. A security deposit will be blocked for the rental period. The deposit is usually the same amount as liability excess of Collision Damage Waiver. As soon as you return the car in the same condition as it was recollected the security deposit will be unblocked. In case that you cause some damage, you will be charged from your deposit. Please note that the amount of the deposit depends on the car category and the local rental car agency. The amount of deposit you will find in the terms and conditions of the particular car.

A valid driver´s license is required to be able to rent a car. You will need an international license along with your own home license if you are renting a car out of the country where your home license was issued. It is always recommended to check further requirement in the local traffic department where you home license was issued. We always recommend strongly having an international driver´s license with you when you are going for holidays abroad.

What does MEET & GREAT mean?
MEET & GREAT is a service offered by the car rental company in case they do not have an office at the airport. In this case, the car rental agency does not provide the exact address of the office. MEET & GREAT means that one of the local car rental representatives will wait for you in the arrival hall holding a poster with your name. As soon as you meet the agent at the airport, he will lead you to the car or to the local office. If you do not find them or you do have any delay, please call the number from your confirmation voucher.
