Top tips for renting a car in Moldova

  • Hiring a car in Moldova offers several advantages over relying solely on public transport. Firstly, it provides flexibility and freedom to explore the country at your own pace, visiting off-the-beaten-path destinations that may not be easily accessible by public transportation. Additionally, a hire car allows you to optimise your time, avoiding crowded schedules and waiting times for buses or trains. It also offers convenience in terms of carrying luggage and shopping. Overall, hiring a car in Moldova provides convenience, autonomy and the opportunity for a more personalised and immersive travel experience.
  • When driving around Moldova, it is recommended to choose a car that suits the typical road conditions and terrain. Opting for a compact or mid-size vehicle is generally practical, as it allows for easy manoeuvrability on Moldova's roads, some of which may be narrower or in need of repair. Additionally, consider a car with good suspension to handle the occasional potholes. While a sturdy and reliable car is advisable, it's important to select one that also fits your personal preferences and comfort requirements for a pleasant driving experience.
  • In Moldova, the legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit for driving is set at 0.03%. This means that drivers are not allowed to have more than 0.03 grams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood. It is important to note that this limit is lower than in many other countries. It is strongly advised to avoid drinking and driving altogether, as impaired driving can lead to accidents, legal consequences and risks to oneself and others on the road.
  • In Moldova, you can commonly see locals driving compact cars and small hatchbacks, as they are more fuel-efficient and well-suited for navigating the country's narrower roads and urban areas. Additionally, you may spot some older models of European and Soviet-made cars, reflecting the region's historical ties to these automotive industries. Locals in Moldova also often display a dynamic driving style, with faster speeds and occasional aggressive manoeuvres.
