Car Hire in St. Petersburg

Various international and local car rental firms have bases in St. Petersburg, and most have desks at Pulkovo Airport, so that visitors can pick up their hire car as soon as they land. The route from the airport into the city centre couldn’t be easier because it’s a straight drive up the Pulkovskoe Highway, which turns into Moskovsky Prospekt.

St. Petersburg by Car

Car hire gives you the chance to be completely independent during your time in St. Petersburg, and you’ll be able to see much more of the Imperial architecture than you would by walking or using public transport. Most four- and five-star hotels offer free onsite parking, while the majority of other hotels are located close to public car parks. Some of the high-end hotels will even help guests with organising car rental.

Driving in Russia

Hiring a car allows you to be flexible during your time in St. Petersburg and makes it easier to get to the Imperial estates on the outskirts of the city. With you international driving licence and passport you are free to roam the countryside. Even though the roads in the Russian countryside have a reputation for being a bit bumpy, some visitors take the five-hour drive through pine forests and past medieval castles to Tallinn for a night or two. The drive to Helsinki is about the same distance, through equally beautiful landscapes.
