Georgia 4×4 driving & vehicle questions

When you are in the mountains, we advise you to never drive alone off the beaten track. There are clearly marked roads that will take you to your destination. Please follow those and don't take any interesting side tracks as these roads might be not suitable for cars but could be meant for sheep herds and cows.
You don’t need to know anything about 4x4 off-road driving before going on a 4x4 adventure. You will get an instruction before taking off. There are also practicalities like deflating your tires. We provide all of this information, but you will have a much smoother trip if you either know about this already or look into it beforehand.
We do not require you to present an International Driving Permit (IDP), provided your local driving license is in Latin alphabet.
There is no kilometer limit per day.
AWD drives the entire wheels all time whereas 4WD uses a driver selectable system that mechanically engages the drive to all four wheels. 4WD has direct mechanical link between front and rear axles which can be locked. Normally the drivers are advised to engage the 4 WD mode (H4)on slippery /sandy surfaces and to get more traction use the low 4WD (L4).
It would be helpful to engage 4 WD (H4 - can shift in low speed) while climbing the mountains roads, or on uneven muddy roads.

This can mean before departure, but also during the trip. Moreover, the Guarantee Fund GGTO underwrites your return trip for the length of your stay if the tour operator, due to financial insolvency, can no longer take responsibility for this. Every package holiday dealer is legally required to provide a guarantee scheme such as this one (Civil Code 7 Article 7:512).
