  • Your driving experience have to be 2 years, and you have to be over 21. However, drivers below 25 are considered young drivers, so they have to pay extra if they get a fine.
  • If you want to write down another driver into a rental agreement, you have to pay extra.
  • If you order a car online, you can reduce the cost (by 30% lower).

Tourist attractions

The Botanical Garden is located 9 km north from Batumi on the road to Kobuleti. It was founded in 1912. There is a magnificent collection of plants from different continents. The park is huge, so you'll need a few visits to explore it. Besides a dendrological collection, you can see a large collection of flowers in the Batumi Botanical Garden. There are several ponds with beautiful water plants and goldfish.

The current commercial purpose of the garden isn't good for science. Entrepreneurs don't attract more visitors yet. Probably, to attract more visitors, they should organize free transporting for tourists from the city center. You can see remains of the cable car – maybe one day it will attract more tourists to the Botanical Garden.

If you drive 13 km more, you'll reach the ruins of the fortress of Petra. Also, there is Ciche with ancient settlements. It was founded by Byzantines during the reign of Emperor Justinian. Archaeologists discovered the remains of baths and the Basilica during excavations.

On the south of Batumi, there is a Roman fortress Gonio Apsaros near the border with Turkey. Archaeologists work here trying to discover new artifacts. This cultural layer belongs to the 5th century AD.

Mahuntseti waterfall is nearby the Rock River. It's nice to swim in cold water when it's hot. Opposite Keda, there is an arched bridge that was built for crossing the mountain river.

You can see bridges like these in the Kintrishi national park near Kobuleti. To get there, you should drive 60 km away from Batumi. You have to coordinate visiting the protected area with a governance of Kobuleti. Don’t worry; it​’s easy to do it.

Reviews of car rental are usually positive. The main advantage of a rental car is that you can choose your own route. After returning the rental car, we explored Batumi and came back home.
