Traffic violation fines

Let us return to the conversation about fines. Most of them are imposed for violation of well-known rules of conduct on the road and should be adhered rigorously; you are unlikely to have to deal with the situation on the spot. Therefore, just try to avoid it. However, there are other ways to get into conflict with the law and lose a tangible amount of money:


All this time, we've been speaking how to make the most of your trip budget. Now let's talk about how to avoid unexpected expenditures, for example, fines. Most of them can be avoided by following generally adopted rules of conduct, law-abiding behaviour, sticking to street cleanliness, and public order. However, be attentive to various warning signs on the streets and buildings, therefore, avoiding having lunch in the wrong place or accidentally entering a restricted area.

Riga average fuel price.

Try to avoid trips to the city centre with an almost empty tank; it is extremely difficult to find a petrol station in the city centre; they are all based on the outskirts.

Very pleased with the service both on and off line. Good selection of cars on the website and on arrival the cars are always clean and up to date.

Several times me and my friends have been convinced that this aggregator finds any variants of a car for rent around the world.

Initially I booked a hire car from Gold Car for a holiday in Malta via Cars Scanner. My initial feedback is good: the website is clear, the price of the car hire from Gold Car beat all the opposition by miles. The telephone operator was always polite and helpful on the times I rang. The friction and unhappiness occurred post booking. 48 hours before our trip I realised I had misplaced the PIN number of the credit card. I rang both Gold Car (who were utterly useless and simply recommended taking out a vastly inflated insurance policy) and Cars Scanner who gave several sensible suggestions. Due to the dreadful experience of my communications with Gold Car I did not want to give them more money and agreed with Cars Scanner to move (at no extra charge - a kind concession) to Rhodium. My experience with Rhodium was the worst car hire experience in 30 years of hiring cars abroad (see separate review). My criticism of Cars Scanner is that they did not disclose that Gold Car and Rhodium are fundamentally the same company and it is improbable they did not know this given how easily I checked this upon our return plus when I completed the Cars Scanner feedback questionnaire I asked for someone to contact me and supply evidence to support a number of assertions made by staff at Rhodium regarding information I would have been given by them: to date no response from Cars Scanner.
