A father & son business
For your travel freedom while in Finland and moving needs, you can use a Tampere-based car rental service RentCenter. It's a family-operated, personal, efficient and reliable business. From there you can get:
I first met Antero, the father, a few years ago when I rented a large trailer for transporting my 450 kilogram stump cutter. I have always felt good about renting from Antero since I know their equipment is reliable and their service is honest.
With over 25 years of experience, Antero and his son Antti run a car rental business conveniently located 2 km's from the center of Tampere within easy reach of the Tampere Pirkkala Airport. They are a local company offering Tampere airport car rental. Closely connected with airport personnel, the Car Rental Center has arranged for car pickup at Terminal 2 if you fly Ryanair.
Antero and Antti offer reasonable car rental prices, which are 20% less expensive than most other car rental companies.
This Tampere car rental business has low prices and you get a good, almost new vehicle to give you comfort while driving in Finland. If the rental is canceled you are charged 50% of the total rental depending on the situation. Often, RentCenter may not charge for the entire day, whereas other Tampere car hire companies do.
Antti quotes: “Whether someone rents a hand-truck for transporting heavy items, for 5 euros a day or a van for 2000 euros a month, they are treated equally. This principle has been followed by the Car Rental Center over the years.”
Other rental agencies complicate the renting process, for example, by making you fill out unnecessary forms.
For instance: Avis and Hertz have a Gold Club where you can get a rental car within one minute. With RentCenter it is normal to get the vehicle fast. No need to be part of a club or have a special card. Call in from anywhere in the world, tell them who you are, or fill in their online form. They'll have the keys at the airport.
Many rental companies in Finland overcharge for insurances. You can pay up to 55 euros/day for hidden insurances. With RentCenter you can keep insurance simple, making sure there are no hidden costs.
After your rental period is over, fuel up the vehicle and return the key to Terminal T2 info stand. If you expect to drop off the vehicle in Tampere at the RentCenter location, simply return the key to the box. When in doubt and you cannot return the vehicle on time, remember to call in! That way you will avoid getting a penalty for having returned the vehicle late. This also allows Antti and Antero to keep business going efficiently.
