Hitchhiking is quite popular in Moldova, although usually you have to pay for it, a price equal to the price of the trip in same direction.

But if you are foreign there is a possibility to not pay for the trip, it just depends with every driver you go.

about hitchhiking in Moldova:

In Moldova to hitchhike it is not prohibited or outlawed, so you can freely hitchhike without any restrictions. In order to hitchhike you must stay on the side of the road and raise your hand (so that the hand should be paralel with the ground), raising the big thumb it is not used, although the driver, possibly, will understand that you mean. Dont hesitate to stop any car you see, just dont create some car accident situation.

language controversy

Though the official language of Moldova is called Moldovan, it is really Romanian, identical to the Romanian spoken in Romania. [1]
