Car Rental in Russia

One of the most exciting ways to explore a massive country like the Russian Federation is with a car. Although it is generally thought that reliable car rentals in Russia are much pricier compared to those in the rest of Europe, we can easily prove that notion wrong with the budget-friendly rent a car offers we can find for you.

Must-knows about driving in Russia

With a territory covering more than 6.59 square miles of land, Russia easily ranks as the world’s biggest country in terms of area. It is also ninth in the world in terms of population. Even though the country has a rather low road density given the vast territory it occupies, more and more travellers in the country choose to explore it via a car. However, visitors of the country are advised not to hit the road during the rush hour. Also, a considerable part of the road networks outside of Russia’s main metropolitan areas are not well-maintained which requires drivers to be more vigilant on the road. The country’s driving laws are very strict, especially when it comes to drinking and driving. The speed limit on motorways is 100 km/hour but for those who have less than two years of experience behind the wheel, it is just 70 km/hour. One of the most interesting and unusual road rules in Russia is that drivers are not allowed to pick up hitchhikers.

Licensed car rentals in Russia have started to gain popularity over the last few years. Some of the best car hire deals in Russia are those offered by Sixt at Moscow, Saint Petersburg and Sochi Airport, among others. The company’s fleet in the country is versatile and it included everything from small and medium cars to people carriers and luxury vehicles to be picked up directly from Pulkovo Airport or waiting for you at Hotel Best Western Plus Vega in Moscow . Renting a small car is the most budget-friendly option you have. Sixt’s small vehicles can be hired for £20.99 per day or a little under £147 a week in Saint Petersburg. For those who want to enjoy a first-class travel experience, Sixt can provide them with premium and cabriolet car rentals in Russia which are both available for a starting price of £63.74 per day or about £446 for a whole week. Trusted car rentals in Moscow are more expensive than anywhere else in the country. Again, Sixt is the main and often the only rent a car provider. In Moscow, the company’s small car hire options start at £28.62 and its premium vehicle rental options will cost you nearly £90 a day.

Because of the huge territory of Russia, distances here are quite great. The five biggest cities in the country are the capital Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Novosibirks, Yekaterinburg and Nizhny Novgorod. They are quite a few kilometres apart, so if you would like to see them all, it would be best to prepare for quite a drive. Another interesting fact about Russia is that there are as many as 35 languages officially recognised by the State.
