Oulu Guide


Oulu, in northern Finland, has a renowned technical college and is now a leading light in Finland's burgeoning computing and microchip industries. A hundred years ago Oulu was the heartland of the world's tar industry and the city's affluence and vibrant cultural scene date from that time.

Explore Oulu

Places worth visiting in this vibrant town include the 18th century cathedral containing Finland’s oldest oil painting (c.1611). Tietomaa is another of Oulu’s most interesting places to visit. Inside you'll find all sorts of scientific displays of interest where various technologies are explained with lots of hands-on activities. The City Art Museum hosts many exhibitions of Finnish art, of interest to both tourists and locals alike.

For walking enthusiasts try the Botanical Gardens in the University’s grounds, which contain two green houses known as Romeo and Juliet housing over one thousand species from warmer climatic zones. There are also extensive hiking opportunities in the surrounding forests.

Food options cover all tastes and budgets, from the extravagant Neptunus serving seafood on a boat near the market square to the numerous cheap pizzerias. For a traditional Finnish gift, visit the market or the numerous specialty shops selling Finnish and Lappish clothing. For nightlife, the Foxia is busy and plays various types of music. While in Oulu one Finnish experience not to be missed is the sauna, which can be found throughout the city.


To escape the city’s bustle, visit Pikisaari Island with its lush park, streams and (in the summer) open-air theatre. It also houses the oldest building in Oulu, called the Matila House and dating from 1737. It is now a sailors’ home museum.

You can get to Oulu by car using highway E4. There are also regular train services from Helsinki and there is an airport nearby serviced by Finnair.

Car hire is always the best form of transport for exploring the outer reaches of the city. Finland offers tourists stunning views over the Baltic, Sea which spills in through the Gulf of Bothnia forming a lake like shape. Travel North towards Kemi and take in all that this beautiful coastline of scattered islands has to offer.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
