In this short article I would like to tell you about my experience of visiting Georgia this year, and mainly how did I figure out to travel while due to COVID virus the public transport is not functioning. Georgia is a nice country with many remarkable places to visit, which can be easily reached but not during a lockdown. The way out of this situation is to rent car in Tbilisi. I recommend to hire a SUV, making you able to get to the most distant places with comfort.
I have rented a hybrid Ford at GSS Car Rental and was fully satisfied with the service. The great thing is that you will have a 24 hour on road support which means that if the vehicle suddenly breaks down the company will deliver an appropriate car in exchange, even if you are taking a very long trip away from the capital of Georgia. I didn’t have any troubles with the vehicle and as I found out later, GSS has their own repair facility where all of the vehicles undergo through technical inspection before renting. That’s a serious approach.

GSS also offers an ordinary sedans and minivans for rent with gas and diesel engines. Most of the vehicles are Japanese 4WD. The renting procedure is very simple – only a passport and driver license is required. All of the company’s cars are insured and the insurance is included in renting price. For additional cost you can have super insurance if you wish.
On company’s website you can find all the needed information on renting a vehicle, answers to frequently asked questions and can book a car online with very useful price calculator. GSS will deliver the vehicle free of charge with the Tbilisi city limits, and also in other towns of Georgia for an additional cost.
A lot of additional options for a rented vehicle can be requested — snow chains, child seats and also a driver service. Customer receives a vehicle with a full tank and you should return the vehicle to the company also fully fueled. There are no restrictions on mileage and you can cross the border with some neighbor countries with the rented vehicle but you will need to have additional documents to do so. The payment is accepted by cash, plastic cards or a bank transfer.
If you have booked a car but your flight is postponed for a short period of time the booking won’t be cancelled. You will be able to use the vehicle upon arrival. Renting period prolongation is also very comfortable, you won’t need to visit company’s office personally – just make a call or send an email. By the way, you can also contact GSS by online messengers like Viber or WhatsApp.
Eventually there are different types of discounts available depending on rental period length and the company’s personnel will be glad to help you and answer any additional questions, not only about the rental procedure, but helping with the directions and other things. You can find a lot of positive feedback from satisfied customers of GSS at Google reviews which prove the high quality of the services the company provides.
So if you are going to travel in Georgia and especially would like to visit the most interesting places I suggest renting a vehicle at GSS and make sure of the company’s exceptional service. The whole territory of Georgia has a lot of great sightseeing spots, especially if you are interested in ancient buildings like castles, caves and churches. There are also a good skiing resorts in the mountains and at the same time you will be able to go swimming on the Black Sea beaches in summer. I definitely suggest visiting Georgia as I think that the trip in such interesting country will bring you a lot of excitement.
