Top tips for renting a car in Russia

  • If you are bringing children on your vacation to Russia, they will need to sit in the back of the car if they are under 12 years old. A child under 12 may only sit in the front passenger seat if they are restrained in a suitable child car seat. You can rent a car seat or booster seat from your car hire company for around 322 RUB (5 USD) per day.
  • Crossing the Russian border into neighboring countries is possible, provided you discuss it with your car hire company and ensure that you have applied for the appropriate visas. There may be an additional charge to take your car across the border. At Baltic and non-EU borders, you will be required to fill out extra paperwork and go through customs.
  • If you plan to visit an area that does not have good public transport or if you want to visit several cities, such as the Golden Ring around Moscow, it’s a good idea to rent a car in Russia. You will find that public transport costs more the larger the city; therefore, renting a car is not only comfortable, but also saves money. If you want to summit Mount Elbrus, in the Caucasus Mountains in southern Russia, driving is the best way to get there.
  • When you rent a car in Russia, you must carry the following documents at all times in case you are stopped by traffic police: passport and visa, migration card, a valid driver’s license, insurance, and registration papers.

All passengers in the front and back seats must wear seatbelts. Most of the road signs are in Cyrillic characters, not English, and you will encounter toll roads on the M3, M4, and M11 highways, where you can expect to pay around 25 RUB (0.39 USD) per km.

  • If you plan to rent a car in Russia, the minimum age for drivers is 21 years old; however, this can vary depending on car category. You must have held a valid driver’s license for a year, and you must also hold an International Driving Permit. Drivers younger than 25 years old need to pay an additional young driver surcharge, and the maximum age for renting a car is 70 years old.

  • When you rent a car in Russia, you will find that the average price of petrol is 45,70 RUB (0.71 USD) per liter and 2.84 USD per gallon. At petrol stations, you generally pay for your petrol first and then pump. If you cannot find a petrol station, you can often buy petrol in plastic tanks or bottles from roadside vendors. In rural areas, petrol stations are no farther than 70 km (43 mi) apart.

In urban areas the speed limit is 60 km/h (37 mph), and outside of built-up areas, you can travel up to 90 km/h (55 mph). In some residential areas, there may be signs for 20 km/h (13 mph).
