Helsinki Airport has several secure indoor parking garages. You will pay around $50 to park your car for one week, and if your vacation goes longer, the lot will charge only $10-20 more for an additional week of parking. The AirPort Bus offers free transportation from the lots to the terminals.
When you need to reduce your travel costs, consider using a cab. Cabs cost less than $20, and you can arrange for the driver to pick you up anywhere in Helsinki or the surrounding area. Public buses are also available for $5 or less. The bus makes regular stops at the airport and lets you off a few feet from the entrance.
