KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Chisinau

  • When you choose to pick up a car hire in Chisinau, you open up this hidden part of Eastern Europe in the heart of Moldova. With Soviet-style architecture and throwbacks to the Ottoman Empire making up the landscapes, this city is filled with historical delights. Visit Stephen The Great Street, which is known as the longest and oldest street in the city, or pop into the ancient underground wine cellars of Milesti Mici. When it’s time to venture out with your Chisinau car hire, take a drive to Doroca, on the coast of the Nistru River, for fantastic views. Explore areas like Tiraspol, Bender and Odesa and see statues, monuments and the Bender Fortress for a real look into this ex-Soviet city's past.
  • If you are flying into Chisinau, you will probably land at Chisinau Airport (KIV). Pick up your cheap car hire in Chisinau from either SIXT or Hertz on site and drive straight from the terminal. Staff at the airport will be able to complete your transaction in English with friendly service, and at this stage, you should top up on any extras you may have forgotten, such as a GPS or car seat.
  • Driving your Chisinau car hire will enable you to see all of the country's attractions within about 2 hours of the city. With a friendly bunch of locals on the road, brush up on your essential Romanian phrases in case you get stuck, but many locals should be able to speak some English. Signs will be in Romanian and road signs are rather different from those you may be used to. Despite being one of the world’s biggest winery regions, Chisinau and Moldova have zero tolerance for drinking and driving. You will drive on the right-hand side of the road, wear your seatbelt at all times and keep children under 12 in the back seat.
  • The roads of Chisinau are in decent condition near the city and become more rural as you venture further away, which is to be expected. For this reason, you can find congestion in certain parts, particularly motorway onramps and exits, and other hazards on rural roads, such as tractors and horse carts. A lot of the motorways are two-lane roads that sometimes lack signage. This can be frustrating for a tourist, so ensure you have a GPS handy. Also, pay close attention to pedestrians and cyclists, as there are many in the city centre.
  • Book your rental car in Chisinau at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Chisinau are around 1% cheaper than other car types, on average

Fuel efficiency is generally better in a smaller car, and when you find rural roads or old town inner-city lanes, you will be more likely to fit through with ease.

  • What is the speed limit in Chisinau?

    The speed limit in Chisinau is slightly lower than in many other countries, but you shouldn’t have any issues adhering to the rules of the road. There are not that many fixed cameras on the motorways, but speed traps are very common. Stick to 20 kph on residential roads, 50 kph in built-up areas and between 80 kph and 110 kph on the highways.

  • Where are the best places to park in Chisinau?

    With your car hire in Chisinau, you can find paid parking run by the city in most urban areas. You can find the appropriate parking meters with ease, or opt for parking garages and official car parks instead. Police are quite tough on cars that have been parked illegally, and towing is very common. Jumbo Parking Lot on Decebal Boulevard and Parcare Auto on Dacia Boulevard are good paid options, and you can find several free areas too. Alternatively, park in existing car parks that belong to shopping centres, hotels and theatres and just pay for the ticket when you leave.

9.2 Wonderful

May 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

Excellent vehicle.

Cons:

I was charged 250 Euro for a very small ding in the door. I was with the car for the entire time it was driven, and we did not hit anything. I can only assume either that it was missed when we did the pick up inspection (the ding was very small), or that someone hit us with their car door while we were parked. Regardless, it seemed like a lot of money for such a tiny problem.

2.0 Poor

Jul 2022

KAYAK
I liked that the car was clean, new and perfectly functionable. I didn’t like the fact that I was asked for a deposit amount ridiculously high in comparison with the model of the car. Anything thing is when I booked online there was another brand presented, Hunday i 10, but after the booking was completed I received a confirmation of Kia booking. That made me confused and doubtful. The most unpleasant moment was when I returned the car, the gentleman who received it, identified a scratch on the car which as per his back up photos was not there, as well as on the sheet that is given upon pick up, there was no scratch mentioned. However when I received the car I was informed about this matter but I didn’t check the paper to be marked as was very tired and forgot about it. As a result we had an argument and went through many photos on his computer for him to show me that the scratch was not there at all at any time before I picked the car up and that it is a result of my fault. Finally I noticed one of the photos where the scratch was there and this resulted in my deepest disappointment that I was the subject to be fooled around so that they could get more money in a dishonest way. My lesson was learned and a client was lost.
