Finland is a wonderful country full of beautiful scenery and delightful towns and cities. Although Finland does not have the high mountains of its Scandinavian neighbours it does have splendid skiing and other winter sports facilities. In the severe winter weather that Finland enjoys every year, vehicles must be fitted with appropriate tyres and speed limits are reduced by 20 kilometres per hour.

Driving on the right hand side of the road may be a new experience for some visitors as may well be the use of kilometres to measure distance - one good thing about using a rental car is that it will be adapted to local conditions with the steering on the left hand side and the speedometer marked in kilometres per hour.

The availability of rentals cars is very good throughout Finland and there is usually no problem in arranging for a hire car to be left at a different location from where it was originally rented.

The speed limits in Finland are:

On Motorways the limit is 120 kilometres per hour. This equates to about 75 miles per hour. On other roads not showing any lower restriction the limit is 100 kilometres per hour that's 62 miles per hour. In towns the limit is 50 kilometres per hour, or 31 miles per hour.

Drivers face severe penalties if found driving with more than 0.05% of alcohol in their blood.

Before you drive away you should check that your hire car carries a warning triangle as these are compulsory in Finland.

Persons under the age of 18 years are not allowed to drive in Finland even though they may hold a driving licence issued in another country.

The wearing of seat belts is compulsory and children must be 10 years old or over to occupy a front passenger seat.
