Feedback from our customers

Danil Savilov
I liked everything very much. Excellent service. We took a car for 4 days, went to Kakheti and Mtskheta. The car was delivered on time, clean and in excellent condition. We were satisfied with the car. The rental prices were pleasantly surprised.
I would like to highlight and thank Denis's employee separately. I answered all the questions and explained everything correctly. A competent specialist and a true professional in his field. We stayed in touch throughout the rental days
We will definitely contact you again next time. I recommend it to everyone. Thank you very much!!!
Egor Grigoriev

We arrived with a group of friends during the holiday week in Tbilisi, which means that nothing works in the city. And only GEOdrive promptly responded to the request, provided us with several cars to choose from. We took a Subaru Forester, we were happy with the car, drove it across Georgia to Batumi and back. The prices are very adequate. The staff is friendly and customer-oriented, flexible. As a bonus, we were issued a SIM card with unlimited Internet right in the office for the duration of the trip. I recommend it in every possible way!
George Bagaturia
I am very pleased that I took a car from this company. For me, the most important thing is that it is a reliable company that will really provide the services appropriate in advertising. I must say that they fully corresponded to my ideas. I came for 10 days from St. Petersburg. I needed a car to visit my numerous relatives in Tbilisi, then to buy plumbing and related products for the repair of my parents' house. I can say that the Ford Fiesta met all my expectations. I've never let you down. I planned to do it in 3-4 days, but it didn't work out. I extended it for another 4 days without any problems, I carried out all the planned trips. I recommend this company to everyone who wants to save their nerves and enjoy trips around Tbilisi in a calm mode.
Sviatoslav Antonov
I rented a mini Cooper, thank you. clean as new, there is a Bluetooth. It seemed a little that the rental staff checked everything very carefully, it's OK, but on off-road trips I would take a car from someone simpler. And in order to meet a lady in white sneakers, it is perfect👍
Maksim Shcheglov
I rented a car for six days. The car was given a clean, fully prepared one. The condition of the car is very good. They also made a discount.
But the most important thing is the attitude of the employees! We helped with paid parking, any car consultations, we are always in touch. Thank you very much!
Sergey Kuznetsov
Excellent car rental service. Wonderful guys. They respond to messages within a minute. We sent the draft agreement in advance for review and discussion. The car was brought to the address at the agreed time, they told important points about the car, the contract and local traffic rules, filmed the condition of the car. The acceptance of the car took just a few minutes. I liked everything, I recommend it
Alexey Siparov
We took a car at this rental. I liked everything very much. We went to the city. The car is on good winter tires. Nothing rattled or knocked. The contract is in a clear language. We will contact you again.
Clearly, conveniently, without unnecessary bureaucracy. We took two cars for the company, went to Kakheti. Kia Sportage red is generally a fire. The white Tiguan needs a little bit of suspension, but the car is very convenient in terms of luggage capacity. Thanks to the guys, they were constantly in touch, gave useful advice. We definitely recommend it.
Ryugo Hedecki
We rented a car for 3 days, with delivery to the airport - everything was fine
Nikolai explained everything, prompted, answered all questions, thanks to him!
There are no questions about the service either, the car was issued on time and quickly, the return did not take much time either. The conditions are very simple and clear, they go to a meeting. when handing over the car, they did not find fault. The prices are very affordable. When I'm in Georgia, I'll take more from ni
