Everyone were helpful and friendly. They considered that the renter was an American and provided an automatic without extra pay
10.0 Excellent24 Aug. 2018
Extra mileQuick pickup and answered questions. Upon return I explained to the gentleman that I needed assistance to get to terminal 2, as I use crutches. His reply was "Let's make it happen" and he dropped me off at the terminal. Made my day!!Location was a bit of a hassle to get to and not easy to find on return. GPS needs update as it was difficult to input tourist sites and even location of return.

Excellent....until plans changeExcellent face to face staff. Straightforward service, reasonable price.I had a flight delay and needed to confirm and hopefully alter my pickup date but in spite of hours spent it was impossible to get hold of anyone even direct by phone to sixt hq or the rental office and they have no live chat. Seems from other reviews unanswered calls is normal.

The car was much nicer than I expected at a reasonable price.Rental desk was very hard to find: was located in a car dealership with no signs outside.
9.6 Excellent4 Sep. 2017
Sixt is great. They were flexible at the return location and time, and the vehicle they provided had just 2500km on it. Daniel Immonen at the rental counter was very friendly and helpful in answering my questions and making adjustments to the reservation. I've had good luck with them, and this was no exception.The rental car return at Helsinki airport is hard to find, at least for me. The signage was not obvious, and the gps in the rental directed us back to the rental counter, instead of rental car return. We had to go into the airport and ask directions, and even then it was difficult to find. But this is more an airport problem than a sixt problem.

Easy process. No wait.
8.8 Excellent26 Jun. 2017
View and Baggage Space InferiorI liked how the handled. Also appreciated the auto transmission.Did not like lack of baggage space. There were too many blind spots, windows too small. Passenger space in the back was cramped and the seat backs in front combined with small window viewing made it hard for passengers to enjoy the scenery. A GPS wou ld have also been helpful.
10.0 Excellent14 Jun. 2017
Great service when i had to charge the vehicle type with email, I filled out all the information on the web site so it was very fast getting the car at Helsinki airport. Nice car (SUV) great on fuel.Nothing about Sixt but Kayak conformation did not include the "security code" so i could not change my reservation through the web site. However i contacted them via email and they made my changes and sent a Sixt conformation with "security code "
2.0 Mediocre13 Jun. 2017
Impossible to changeNeeded to upgrade the car to fit two more passengers. That turned out to be impossible. All cars were so expensive that I had to cancel the reservation, with about 80€ penalty, and rent from a competitor.
10.0 Excellent7 Jun. 2017
Great value for moneyWe rented a Skoda Citigo. A bit on the small side for me, at almost 2M tall, but what a great little car. We averaged 4L/100Kms. It was ideal for the two of us with luggage.A bit like an Alamo rental when you go to pick up the car. A bit of a hike in Helsinki Airport, humping 2 trolleys over to P3, Level 2.

Efficient.We were given a shift gear car. Not driven a shift gear car for a while so it was tricky driving one especially as it is on the left hand drive. We drive on the right hand in Malaysia. Also perhaps some basic explanation.about traffic rules in finland should have been given. We were not aware a time display must be put on.the dash board when parking. We nearly got a ticket written for this as we were totally unaware of this requirement. Good thing the enforcement officer came by a little while after we parked and we saw him approach the car. We ran back to the car to find out what we had done wrong and he kindly explained this

Pickup was easy and the staff friendly and helpful. I also liked the car, a BMW.The rental fee doesn't include any kind of insurance. Also, if you drop off the car when the office is closed, you have to find street parking. And make sure to get familiar with traffic signs, I didn't notice I parked in a no-parking zone, and a $90 ticket was added to my bill.

Good agent who upgraded the car for us given that our luggage did not fit the original reservation. Hotel Valo is a bit far and they do not have a collection of car to choose from.

Top tips for hiring a car in Helsinki

  • Not only a major political and economic hub for Finland and the Nordic area, Helsinki is also blessed with astounding landscapes ranging from the sea and the many islands, to the snow-covered mountains in the distance. The best way to explore Helsinki and all of its grand, isolated beauty is with a hire car, letting you escape the beaten track and discover what makes it one of the world’s most livable cities. Also take the time to drive east towards Porvoo and Loviisa, two seaside fishing villages that will give you an authentic taste of the Nordic lifestyle.
  • Helsinki Airport is located within the small city of Vantaa, roughly 20 km (12 miles) from the city center of Helsinki. Use KAYAK to view the best available deals for hire cars at Helsinki Airport. Major global agencies including Avis, Hertz, Budget, and Europcar have counters located in the arrivals hall corridor between terminals 1 and 2.
  • It is a legal requirement to always drive with your headlights on in Finland, whether it be through the darkest nights of winter or the brightest days of summer. Depending on the newness of the car model you rent, headlights may automatically turn on when the engine starts or you may need to manually flick them on in older models.
  • Finnish roads are not only impeccably designed and well built, they also rarely house traffic congestion. Driving wherever you want to go in Helsinki, even the center of town, is a peaceful experience; delays only stretch to ten or twenty minutes at the worst. Be careful if you visit during the winter when roads are covered in snow by reducing your driving speed and provide additional time for braking.
