GRAB A CAB – BETTER USE AN APP
Finding a taxi in Russia
When Victoria books a taxi, she uses an app. Khaya’s accommodation manager moves around a lot as she visits many hotels.
Victoria chooses between three providers: Gett, Uber and Yandex Taxi. She has an app on her smart phone for each of them.
Using an app is the recommended way of finding a taxi in Russia, as drivers don’t speak English and communication with most of them is rather difficult.
Visitors to Russia should load at least one of these apps on their phone.
Be aware of traffic jams
Moscow is notorious for its rush hour, when roads are completely congested and a 20-minute ride can easily become a two-hour trip.
