Finland ready to welcome back travellers

Like many of its Nordic neighbours, Finland is opening its borders to overseas visitors again.

A vaccination certificate, a recovery certificate or a negative test result is still required on arrival, but it does mean that third-country nationals can travel to Finland once again.

This announcement probably can’t come soon enough for the Finnish travel and tourism industry. Just recently it was announced that the European Commission has approved €48.62 million Finnish aid measure to compensate Finnair for the damage suffered due to the pandemic.

Hopefully the tourists will flock back as Finland certainly has plenty of reasons to attract visitors.

Whether it’s to take in the splendour of Europe’s largest archipelago, visit the stunning capital city, Helsinki, capture the magic of the northern lights or enjoy what winter has to offer from igloo hotels to snow sports, there is definitely something for everyone. Opening up also means business travellers can return to the country for meetings and events.

Just as before and during the Pandemic, Travel Support continues to offer both Medical and Vehicle related assistance to travellers in Finland.

With a reliable network of local partners, we ensure full assistance services for our clients throughout the whole of Finland. Even to those harder to reach locations in the far north. It just takes a little longer for help to arrive!

Here are some more details about our travel assistance services in Finland.

Medical Assistance in Finland

Through our professional network we deliver high-quality medical assistance to travellers in Finland. We partner with numerous local medical professionals to cover all potential situations, this includes,

  • GPs

  • Dentists

  • Hospitals

  • Medical specialists; physiotherapists, psychologists, orthopedic surgeons, radiologists, etc

  • Body repatriation and funeral services​

In Finland it’s also possible for us to book medical appointments for any day of the week, including Saturday and Sunday. We also arrange ambulance and air ambulance transportation if needed.

Our Finnish vehicle assistance network includes an abundance of services to suitably rescue any type, size, or age of vehicle in need.

  • Roadside assistance

  • Towing

  • Vehicle salvaging

  • Scrapping

  • Transportation

  • Vehicle repatriation

Due to Finland's large archipelago, sometimes the only way to get from one road to another is across water. So when towing is required, and going by ferry is the only option, ferry costs are often included.

Depending on individual circumstances, if a traveller requires onward transport or accommodation, we’ll help our clients with this too. Our skilled operations team arrange onward journeys, taxis, rental cars, hotels and more.

The team also handle logistical and administrative duties, including recommendations and referrals, to effectively complete every individual case. We also do invoice checks and payment follow-ups to provide the best service for both our clients and their customers.
