Broadly speaking, the Nordic countries aren’t the biggest of the UK’s trade partners – and Finland is no exception. But, if you believe the Brexit bluster, anything is possible now we’ve left the EU.
If your business is operating out there, or you’re thinking of making the move, it makes sense to get a reliable and cost-effective conference call service sorted. Helsinki sits almost 1,500 miles and flights from London to Helsinki take around two-hours-and-forty-five-minutes – so you won’t want to be commuting to and from the Finnish capital on a regular basis.
And that’s where an international conference call comes in handy…

What’s the FCO advice on travelling to Finland?
If you’re travelling to Finland, check the latest travel advice where Covid-19 restrictions are concerned and be prepared for plans to change at the last minute.
As with most Nordic nations, crime in Finland is relatively low and so you just need to take the usual precautions against pickpockets and muggings as you would anywhere else, even around your home town.
If you’re thinking of driving while in Finland, you can do so on a UK passport. But be aware that driving in winter can be hazardous as snow and icy road conditions are common. This means that studded or non-studded winter tyres are a legal requirement from December 1 to February 28, but most people keep them on until well into April.
Although the legal alcohol limit for driving is 50 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood, it’s best to avoid any alcohol if you’re getting behind the wheel as drink driving offences come with a lengthy prison sentence.
