Park your 24Rent vehicle for free

Several cities now issue parking permits that allow free parking in city centers for shared vehicles. More and more of our vehicles are equipped with such a permit. When reserving a vehicle from us, check its details to see if a parking permit is included.

The permit is linked to the vehicle’s licence plate, which allows traffic wardens to check whether the vehicle is legally parked.

Note that the parking permits apply to regular 24Rent reservations only. 24Rent MiniLease vehicles are not equipped with parking permits. However, eligible MiniLease drivers may apply for the permit from the applicable city themselves.

Parking restrictions
Regardless of the parking permit, you must adhere to all standard parking rules and regulations. Do not park on private property, in front of gateways or pedestrian crossings, on spaces reserved for the vehicles of disabled persons or diplomats, or on areas with an effective or upcoming request to move vehicles within three days (a Siirtokehotus sign).

It is your responsibility to ensure that the vehicle is correctly parked. If the previous renter has parked against rules or terms, do not repeat the mistake but park legally. This will save you money and trouble later.

Helsinki
If the 24Rent vehicle you rent in Helsinki has a parking permit (Z permit), you can park it free of charge in areas that require a parking permit issued by the City of Helsinki. The same permit also allows you to park in Espoo and Vantaa on spaces reserved for shared vehicles (marked with a supplementary sign).
