Three Moscow car sharing companies are going to translate their apps to English to ease the process of car rental for foreigners, m24.ru news portal reported.

“About 5 percent of our users are foreigners. We will try to make the lives of the tournament’s [FIFA 2018]guests easier. First, we will translate our app and website,” the head of Car5 company said.

According to the publications, rival car sharing companies BelkaCar and Delimobil are going to follow Car5’s example. They will have their cars parked near the 2018 FIFA World Cup stadiums.

According to the Moscow authorities, almost one million tourists will visit the city during the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Moscow will host 12 matches of the tournament.

Car sharing is getting increasingly popular in Moscow as an even cheaper alternative to taxi apps like Uber, GetTaxi and Yandex Taxi.
