Why rent a car in Georgia? Pros and cons There are three normal ways to travel in Georgia: excursions with a professional guide, car rental and car rental with a personal driver. All options are good, but give completely different emotions:
A good tour guide will tell you things you can’t find on the Internet. If you come by yourself, you’ll just see the house. And the guide will be able to tell you something interesting about the people who lived in it. Really good guides always have contacts with local people and different tricks. Well, who else will take You to dinner in an ordinary Georgian house? Renting a car with a driver gives you the opportunity not only to taste Georgian wine, but also to communicate with ordinary Georgians “for life”. It is sometimes almost as interesting as a tour. We went with a Colonel of the Ministry of internal Affairs, and with a chef, and with a simple student or former Bank employee. Believe me, they are also very interesting. Renting a car gives you real freedom. You are not limited to one day or a pre-planned route, visit what and when you want, you can climb the mountain and just be alone. Such feelings can not be obtained in the company of even good, but still strangers to You people. In Georgia by car In General, traveling in Georgia by car is very comfortable — You do not have to hurry and you can stop as much as you want to admire the surrounding beauty Having tried many ways to travel to different countries, Alina and I somehow agreed that there is nothing better than renting a good car and going to the mountains. Just not for 1 day in the format of “gallop across Europe”, but for about a week, when the route is thought out only approximately, there is enough time and you can stop to participate in a village holiday or just rush off along the highway over the horizon.
It is from such trips that we have the most vivid memories. Even if the road was difficult, it’s still nice to remember how we missed a turn, went in the wrong direction and found a great place that no one, anywhere, has ever written about. And let it just be a beautiful lake or a hut in the highlands, where the entire menu consists of incredibly delicious mountain tea and chacha. But these are our places.
Therefore, if You have never rented a car and always went on excursions, I advise you to try at least once. You may also love this travel format as much as I do. At the end of the article, I compared renting a car with other ways to travel around the country. In fact, not everything is so clear, it is often more profitable to take a car with a driver than to drive yourself.
