The Port of Helsinki and Hertz Car Hire are now offering passengers a convenient way to hire a car directly at the Olympia Terminal in the South Harbour and West Terminal 2 in Jätkäsaari. Passengers who make use of the service will also get a discount of up to 10% on the car hire prices on Hertz’s website.
The key to the hired car can be picked up from the Hertz key box located in the terminals’ departure lounges using a PIN code. The car is parked in a parking space with Hertz signs by the main entrance of the terminal.
The car can also be returned to the port by parking it in the Hertz parking space and returning the key to the key box .
“Hiring a car directly at the terminal is both easy and convenient for passengers. The car must be reserved no later than two hours before pick-up, so you can do it even during your ship voyage,” says the Port of Helsinki’s Head of Passenger Services & Property Development Marika Pauli.
“If the car hire service proves popular at the Olympia Terminal and West Harbour, our intention is to expand it to the Katajanokka Terminal as well.”
“The Port of Helsinki’s terminals are gateways to Finland and significant transport nodes for both passengers and goods. Engaging in cooperation at these types of intersections of different modes of transport is only natural for Hertz and a great opportunity to make our services more accessible to a wider pool of potential customers,” says Key Accounts Director Ida Myllys from Hertz.
“One of the best ways to explore the many tourist destinations, culture and nature of Finland is by car. A hired car also offers freedom of movement for commuters and business travellers, and flexibility for companies looking to supplement their own vehicle fleet on either a short- or long-term basis or in response to a company car being out of commission, for example.”
“We are very excited about this collaboration and the chance to offer a convenient change of transport at the port, ensuring that passengers can continue their trips uninterrupted. The Port of Helsinki has demonstrated their commitment to creating the best possible customer experience, which is perfectly aligned with our own approach.”
Passengers can also make use of Hertz’s corporate customer rates and other discounts and special offers at the harbour service locations. In these cases, the reservation should be made with Hertz as normal via their website, for example.
