Driving a car rental in Ukraine is a very variable experience. Around major cities and along main highways the roads are of a high quality, however in more rural areas you must be very careful to avoid potholes and other obstacles.
- Cars should drive on the right side of the roadway
- In Ukraine there is a zero tolerance policy for drink-driving which means that drivers cannot have any alcohol in their bloodstream before driving
- Always carry some spare fuel for your car as it can be difficult to find petrol stations outside of the major cities
- It is good practice to always carry a warning triangle and high visibility jacket in your car rental car in case of any problems due to the road.
Finally, remember that speed limits and traffic signs in Ukraine are marked in kilometres.
