HIRE a car with a driver
and tour around the city!

Welcome to St Petersburg Essential Guide - Your Best Travel Guide to Russia

Our St Petersburg car rental service is your best choice to get anywhere in and out of the city in comfort, safety, and style. See why!

You've landed in Saint Petersburg and reached your hotel or apartment, now what? Well, we guess your desire would be exploring our beautiful city in comfort and safety, and most importantly, at your own pace.

There are many ways you can tour the imperial city and its suburbs. It all depends on your budget and travel style. You can be walking and taking the Bus or go by Metro (time- consuming and tiring, but the cheapest way); you can rent a car for yourself (adventurous and doable, but risky), or much better, you can hire a chauffeur to drive you around the city (affordable and hassle-free, the most convenient way).

So, if you want to explore the city of St Petersburg at your own pace, and you don't mind to be a passenger, and you like to sit back and enjoy the sights stress-free, then a private transfer is really your best choice, especially if you don't have enough time to visit the city.

If you are looking for renting a car, a van, or a bus with a driver, or you want to drive yourself, you've come to the right place. Here you can book your St Petersburg car rental, with or without a driver, including touring and transfers with our help. You choose!

things to know

If you choose to rent a car with a driver with us you should know the following:

  • Booking well in advance is recommended as arranging something at the last minute might be difficult because our drivers are very busy, especially during high season (June - August).
  • The minimum rental service time is 4 hours, but depending on your destination you may need more than 4 hours. For airport and train private transfers we have different prices, please see here!
  • The price varies based on the size of the group, your destination, and/or the length of your trip. 
  • A deposit in advance via PayPal or Wire Transfer is required to secure the booking, depending on the final cost of your trip. Then, upon your arrival, you pay the balance due directly to the driver in cash, and in Rubles only.
  • Credits cards are currently not accepted to pay the driver directly.
  • All the payment transactions fee is on you. For instance, if you pay via PayPal there is a 5% transaction fee to take into account, which will be added to the total cost of the service.
  • To help you organize your private transfer we ask for a 10% commission based on the final cost of your tour. We call this our service fee!
  • There is no need to tip the driver unless you want. But in the event you are so kind to do so, giving 5% of the service fare would be fine.
  • Our drivers speak only Russian. But don't be afraid of that because all our drivers will be in contact with us for the whole time of your trip. So, if any problem arises you will be able to speak in English with us at any time.
  • You can cancel or amend your St Petersburg car rental order up to 36 hours before the agreed time of your transfer. However, the sooner you warn us, the better it is.
  • A partial refund is available in case of a genuine cancellation only. This is because once you have confirmed your transfer booking we have hired a driver who naturally requires payment.
  • When you use our car searching tool above you will be redirected to our partner page. From there on you won't be dealing with us any longer but with our partner, which is the world's biggest online car rental service.
  • Additional costs apply if you want us to collect you at the port terminal: entrance port and parking fees need to be added on the cost of your St Petersburg car rental or private transfer.
  • Lastly, I would like to inform you that as a cruise passenger in order to go ashore you must have a tour voucher unless you hold a Russian visa (which since 2020 you can easily get one online without going to any Russian consulate) and/or you hold special citizenship or your travel to St Petersburg with St Peter Line Ferry.
