Introduction

The Finnish Vaasa was almost completely destroyed by fire halfway the nineteenth century. The new city wasn't rebuilt at the same place, but about 6 kilometers northwest of the old city. The ruins of the church, the school and the town hall of the former Vaasa are now part of a recreational park. One of Vaasa's main attractions is the Kvarken Archipelago off the coast.

Population

Vaasa has approximately 60,000 inhabitants. In recent years, the population has increased significantly, mainly because of the arrival of high-tech companies (see Economy). About 25% of the inhabitants speak Swedish, which emphasizes the strong ties with Sweden.

Location

Vaasa is located in the west of Finland, on the Gulf of Bothnia. Off the coast lie many small islands which form the Kvarken Archipelago, a nature reserve.

Economy

Vaasa is an industrial city with branches from for example ABB Strömberg (automation technology and electronics) and Wärtsilä, a manufacturer of diesel engines for ships. In addition, a lot of research is done on new technologies for energy generation. No less than 10,000 people are employed in this sector. Vaasa also houses a university and other institutes for higher education.

Airports

Vaasa Airport is situated 10 kilometers southeast of the city center. There are daily connections with Helsinki and Stockholm, and four times a week with Umeå in Sweden. The airport is reachable by rental car in 10-15 minutes from the center via the E12 or the E8.

Public Transport

The city's public bus transport is exploited by Vaasan Paikallisliikenne. Buses run every hour or every half hour and also connect the surrounding places with Vaasa's center. There are bus connections with for example Oulu, Turku and Tampere. Most trains run to and from Seinäjoki, east of Vaasa. There's also a daily ferry connection with the Swedish Holmsund, Umeå's port across the Gulf of Bothnia.

Traffic and Parking

When the city was rebuilt (see Introduction), a rectangular street pattern was used, which makes it extremely easy to find your way around Vaasa. There are more than sufficient parking facilities, but you need to pay for street parking in the center. You can easily visit other places along the Gulf of Bothnia by rental car, as the coastal road E8 runs straight across Vaasa. Tampere can be reached via the E12 (distance: 419 kilometers).

Hotels

The increasing activity in Vaasa has led to a larger choice of accommodations. There are business hotels, but also luxurious spas and basic guesthouses and bed & breakfasts. Many people stay at one of the holiday homes nearby Vaasa or at the campsite on Vaskiluoto Island, opposite the city center.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Hire 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).
