In Georgia, there is nothing to do without a car. It is a fact. All the coolest places inspiring with their beauty lie far beyond the borders of Tbilisi or Batumi, where the vast majority of visitors to this amazingly beautiful country come first. Public transport, presented here in the form of minibuses, to put it mildly, is very specific – no one has an exact schedule and therefore, even if you managed to go to the sights by minibus, you often lose a lot of time waiting for the option to return back. Riding back by taxi (which is what you have to do to get home) nullifies all the savings in transport. An exception I would call the route Tbilisi-Batumi. Here, the Tbilisi-Batumi high-speed train runs and, it should be noted, it is quite inexpensive and very comfortable. However, if you want to see the country, this is clearly not enough. CAR RENTAL IN GEORGIA – IS AN ALTERNATIVE? A healthy alternative to renting can be two other options. This is either excursions with local residents where you are taken, they show and tell everything (you can search for options on the same Tripster), or come to Georgia with your own car. However, the latter only makes sense if you live in the Russian region neighboring Georgia. Maximum – Rostov Region. It is very difficult, long and expensive to travel from Moscow, and even more so from St. Petersburg. This summer I traveled from the capital and experienced all the “charms” of this option. Overnight accommodation, meals on the way, fines and toll roads nullify all the savings. Alas. But now I have something to compare.
