Driving Overview

General Information
Russia is the most spacious country in the world, with many interesting cities and places. With car hire in Moscow you can easily discover attractions around this capital. If you are visiting Saint Petersburg, be sure to rent a car and explore the surroundings.

To rent a car, you must be at least 21 years old and no older than 70 years (age can vary by car category) and have held your driver's license for at least 1 year. There are extra fees for young drivers under age 25. Seatbelts are mandatory.

Speed Limits
Speed limits in Russia are:

  • Town and city: 60 km/h
  • Open Roads: 90 km/h

Traffic restrictions
In Russia you drive on the right side of the road. Always remember to take it extremely easy and avoid driving in the city centre. Dipped head-lights should be used all the time. Please note that it is actually illegal to pick up hitch-hikers.

Most petrol stations are open between 06:00 - 22:00. Some stations along the motorway are open 24 h. Please note that it is hard to find air and water in many petrol stations.

There are a number of toll roads in the Barnaul and Pskov Regions, Pechori-state border and M4-Don. It is recommended to always keep some change on you to pay the tolls in Russia.

In order for the authorities to decrease the high amount of cars in the city centres towing and high fines are a usual punishment for illegally parked cars. Park your car in a secure area or in a parking deck. Check if your hotel offers free parking
