Rent A Car
A new car-sharing service has been launched in Moscow. Fees are per minute, with one minute costing 8.9 rubles. Vehicles can be booked and collected via a downloaded mobile application, with no physical contact with service representatives. This month is still regarded as experimental, but the ‘Delimobil’ company has confirmed surprisingly high demand for this newborn city service.
Rent A Bycicle
Private bike centers and rentals are well represented in Moscow. In the central parks cycling will not only be accepted but welcomed this season.It is always cheaper to rent a bicycle in person in one of the parks, than to order one and have it delivered to your door. The rules and prices are pretty consistent throughout the Moscow parks. A deposit of 1,500 rubles is required. Although the usage of ID documents is actually illegal, before you are allowed to rent a bike you will most likely be asked to produce your ID document. The payment prices for the first hour fluctuate between 200 and 500 rubles, depending on which bicycle you choose.For more information, please, click here.
