Prices

TAXI

Transport.

Moldova is only 450 km from south to north and 200 km from west to east so the best way to get around the country is by taxi.

The price from Chisinau International Airport to city center is 7-8 EUR.

If you travel outside Chisinau, the price for 1 km is 0.4 euro.

You can also rent a car with prices starting from 20 euro/day.

 

Massage

The average level of salaries in Moldova is significantly lower than in US or Europe so you can enjoy professional services offered by certified masseurs at a fraction of the cost in your country.

For example, in the United Kingdom a 1 hour massage cost 65 GBP (which is around 80 EUR) whereas in Moldova it costs 15-20 EUR.

So if you spend 1 week in Moldova, you can easily go to massage for 5-6 times saving minimum (80-20)*5 = 300 EUR.

 

Air Balloning
