It may be that you are used to renting a car to travel through Europe or the United States, but renting a car in Russia is something totally different. Here are some tips on how to do it without having problems.

Car rental offices

If you want to rent a car for more than a day, the old school rental offices are your best option.

Our best advice is to get in touch with a major rental office. These companies often have agreements with Russian airlines and sometimes offer discounts and bonus programs for tourists. In addition, they have websites in different languages. The rental conditions vary from company to company, so be careful to know what deposit they ask for, what the driver's age and experience requirements should be, as well as how much mileage is included in the rental price.

You can rent a car online or by visiting a rental office in person. Booking in advance does not influence the price much, but offers a greater variety of car models.

For example, renting a Hyundai Solaris with automatic transmission and air conditioning from the Sixt company will cost you around 3,700 rubles ($ 60) a day. Of course, as a general rule, the longer you rent the car, the cheaper it will go. So if you rent the car for a few days, the rental price drops to 3,500 rubles ($ 55) per day. The deposit payable to use this model is 15,000 rubles (240 dollars) and will be held against the customer's credit card. The price includes insurance and unlimited mileage. As a general rule, the car will come with a full tank of gas and must be returned with the full deposit, although you can return it empty in exchange for an extra payment.

The same vehicle at Europcar costs 2,300 rubles ($ 35) a day, but only includes 150 kilometers. The company will retain 12,000 rubles ($ 190) from your card.

In general, international rental companies operating in Russia have the same conditions and rules as in other countries. Additional equipment can also be rented (for example, a child seat or a GPS navigator). But there is an important detail: some companies have restrictions on the regions in which you can drive a rental car.

For those tourists who travel exclusively to one of the two main Pakistan cities(Lahore), it is lot of worth rent a car Lahore johar town (https://www.royalcarrentals.pk/) , since the public transport system of these cities is very efficient and economical. In addition, traffic in Lahore is very dense and large traffic jams are often formed, so the best way to get around is by using the Metro.

Neither do I think it's worthwhile to rent a car to travel from Lahore (https://www.carsrental247.com/) to Islamabad, since the journey by car is very long, the state of the roads is not very good and there is a good alternative as the train is much more comfortable and fast.
