Accommodation & car rental

Accommodation standards in Belarus are lower than in Europe, and this applies to both high-end hotels and apartments, so do not expect high standards of services when travelling to Belarus. However, the conditions are quite acceptable.

In the airport, you can rent a car with international companies such as Europcar, Hertz, Avis, Sixt, etc.
