Before first car rental we verify that the driver is a POAS tenant. Therefore it may take some time before the registration is verified. This delay is normally around 5–120 min during office opening hours. Outside office hours, weekends and public holidays this process can take until next weekday. For this reason, we recommend you to register during office hours if possible. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause. After the verification of registration you can rent cars without any delays.

Frequently asked questions:
How far can I drive with full battery?
- Car’s battery lasts about 150-300km depending on many things such as weather conditions and driving speed. Cold weather and using AC or sound system decreases the battery faster. You can find two types of charging cables inside the car. Type 2 connector is used when charging at a charging point, see the map of charging points here: latauskartta.fi. Schuko connector can be used when charging from a normal home socket.
How long does it take to charge the car full?
- Also charging speed may vary depending on many factors, such as weather conditions, charging plug type and battery temperature. With Type 2 charging cable, battery charges from zero to full (0% -> 100%) in approximately 4-6 hours. Slow charging from a home socket takes at least overnight.
