Transportation

Road
The condition of roads is quite bad, but the main highways can be taken all year long. There are few road signs, not very visible at night. The road marking on the ground is almost nonexistent. In the event of an accident, the police must be called, which is the only authority entitled to draw up an accident statement. Neither vehicles, nor injured persons have to be moved. Driving is on the right side of the road. The maximal authorized speed limit on road is 90 km/h, in town 50 kmh. Attention: headlights must be turned on all day long every day of the year. European car insurances are valid (check the mention EE on the green card), including for car rentals. An international driving license is required.



Rail
Railroads are old, slow and not comfortable. Travellers prefer to ride buses, sure and scheduled service, for domestic connections, except the suburb's traffic around Tallinn. Four travellers' lines, one of which being Tallinn - Valga that allows to go across the country in 5h20 (265 km).

Air
Considering the small size of the country, domestic connections are only ensured with the Saaremaa and Hiiumaa islands. There are few connections and planes do not have many seats. "Estonian Air", privatised national company has modern and well-maintained planes and ensures flights to Scandinavia, Western and Eastern Europe.
