  • Air Baltic flights not recommendable!

    This is a travel warning to use Air Baltic Airlines flying to Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia or other destinations. This company, although it charges fairly high prices, has the quality of a low-cost airline, and much worse. In contrast to any other airline I know, one has to pay an EXTRA CHARGE of 30 Euros for 1 piece of check-in-luggage (no matter...

  • Rent a car and go to Estonia from Latvia

    On 2009 I used a car by HERTZ car renter to go from Latvia to Estonia and, another time, a car to go from Estonia to Latvia. In each cases I did not pay surcharges.On 2008 I did the same thing using a car by AVIS car renter. Also this time no surcharges.I think it's normal there are no surcharges for crossing the border because Estonia and Latvia...

  • Car rental in Riga

    We got attracted by an advertisement of the company car4rent, which offered rentals @ EUR 28 per day for compactclass. But then we read the contact was unlogical that could somehow be verbally explained, but some clauses could have potentially been very disadvantegeous for us in case of an accident would happen. And they couldn't show the insurance...

  • By trams in Riga

    Travelling by trams in the city of Riga is a convenient means of transportation especially within the city limits. The trams in Riga are operated by Rigas Satiksme. There are eleven tram lines according to their website below. Several lines (4 lines) depart from Centraltirgus (Riga Central Market). The tram system in Riga has a total length of...

  • Cheap air tickets online

    I think it is the fastest ticket web site in Latvia. Good prices and low transaction fees. It is a shame that they do not have the low-cost carriers like ryanair and easyjet integrated, but it is often cheaper to look for comparision proices with many segments and stopovers rather than fly direct, like with airbaltic.

  • Riga transportation

    To travel around Riga I'd recommend to use public transport system - it's reliable and operating quite often. Buses are rather new and have the name of the next stop on the display - which is great! Trolleybuses tend to be very old. But if you want to drive across Riga by your own car you MUST know one thing - in the city you will not find...

  • Latvia by car

    We hired a car in Latvia, for the public transportation is not very developped and it was the easiest way to explore the countryside.I recommend to rely on the international chains, even if their rates are a bit higher. At least you have the garantee of getting a newer car and, most of all, paying with credit card.The state of the roads in Latvia...

  • Driving around by car

    Major roads in Latvia are under very good conditions! Speedlimit on Motorways / Highways is 110 km/h, according to a travel guide but I haven't found such a road in Latvia. Usually you are allowed to drive on open roads at 90 km/h. In towns you are allowed to drive 60 km/h. On cars light must be turned on day and night and alcohol limit is 0.0 per...

  • Road-Signs and Maps

    If you want to explore Latvia outside of the major towns, this is best done by car. However, orientation is not easy, in particular when using small gravel roads. Road-signs are not always there. Therefore a good map is absolutely essential. The Latvijas autocelu atlants is simply superb. It can be bought at the Jana Seta shop, Elizabetes iela...

    If you have the opportunity to drive to and around Latvia, it would probably be the best alternative. That way you can be free to go anywhere you want...the traffic is mean but trust me, you'll get used to it. Even I who's only had a license for one year drove around down there....For shorter distances around Latvia, the trains are convenient. Not...

    Well it depends on the country where you live. The easiest way of course is by airplane. If you live in nordic countries you can swim on a parom(every 2 days from Stochgolm to Ventspils, it is not far away from Riga). From Eastern Europe the best way to gethere is by car. You can rent a car (Eurocar's office is in the Airport)and in a couple days...

    The cheabest way to get to Riga and Latvia from Finland is by bus. First by ferry to Tallinn and then by bus to Riga. this all takes like 9 hours, but I think it's worth it. You can for example make new friends while sitting in the bus. I'm not sure, in the downtown I think bus is the easies. But if you want to get away from the downtown train...

    having your own vehicle is a good deal in latviaroad condion in latvia can be very tricky! this sign is supposed to warn you when an umpaved section begins.... we found it only once, and in the useless direction: from unpaved to newly paved. So take care when you're driving out of the main routes because you're road can become unpaved just in the...

    Plane to Riga. Bus or rent car from Estonia or Lithuania (major car rentals operate in all three Baltic states, so you can take a car in one country and leave it in another). Train from east (Russia) or from south (Europe, through Lithuania)Railway is on desperate lack of investments nowadays, so bus or car is a major mean of transportation to get...
