Between hosting the 214 Winter Olympics, the annual Russian Grand Prix and providing a venue for the 218 World Cup, Sochi is now firmly on the sporting map - but as a resort city with surprisingly warm summers, it's been on travellers' itineraries for many years prior.
If you're interested in travelling to one of the upcoming sports events, car in Sochi may be useful in order to reach the venues in question, as the city's public transport is bound to become crowded. Sochi's many tourist attractions and resort facilities are proving increasingly tempting to first-time visitors to Russia.
Car hire in Sochi will get you the greatest views of the city's famed Russian architecture and provide useful transport for exploring the space around sites like the Fisht Olympic Stadium, which hosted events in 2014 and will also host several 2018 World Cup games. The 40,000-seater sits on the edge of the city with a majestic view of the Black Sea, whose waters are warm and welcoming for six months of every year.
Also just as welcoming to the north-east is Sochi National Park and Biosphere Reserve, the latter a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to the beautiful natural surroundings and protected animal species who live there like the Persian leopard.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
