More Info Needed: Georgia - Armenia

Hi all, i searched but mainly found nothing for the below topics for Georgia and Armenia:

- gasoline price
- accommodation prices (not camping), mainly motels or B&B's
- meal prices

Any other kind of info is as well welcomed.

Thanks

Gasoline price in Georgia ca 1/liter, in Armenia ca 0,9/l (summer 2013)
B&B (without breakfast) and motels 10-20/night
Meal prices roadside usually 5-10, of course can be both cheaper or more expensive too, depends what or where you eat. Armenians make much better shashlik than georgians.

I travelled through Georgia this year and it was one of the highlights of my trip, a largely undiscovered gem. If you go there head up to Mestia and around the mountains up there.
It is a much cheaper country than just about anywhere in the EU with very friendly people.

Thanks Mark, Mestia is already in my route. Some questions for you if i may:

- can you easily find restaurants/food especially in remote areas as Mestia and Tusheti?
- do they accept euros?

Thanks again for your time

Hotels, guesthouses and restaurants plentiful and reasonably priced, I stayed at Rosa's in Mestia which is recommended.

Take some Euros which are easy to change into Lari and plenty of ATMs as well

Hey there...

I am also planing a trip to Georgia, Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh for the summer of 2014. I was looking for info and i found out some old articles (in other fora) who says that unleaded gasonile is ~80 and not 95. Can someone confirm if its true?

Also any advice about those places is more than welcomed.

Thanks in advance

We didn't have problems to find at least 92 octane and 95 was usually available. When refueling from very small or remote petrol stations fuel quality can be below average though. But we didn't have any major problems, some bikes handled different qualities better than others - my 950SE was ok, frineds with 750 SuperTenere and 640 LC4 were complaining about significant power loss. After refueling with 95, all was ok. Bear in mind that large part of Armenia is above 2000 meters and your bike will lose some power anyway.
