Polish-Ukrainian border crossing by car

Polish-Ukrainian border crossing by car

Hello!

I am planning a trip to Ukraine with two grown-ups and my 5-year old son. We need to cross the border from Poland (starting the trip from Estonia).

Can you tell which place would be the most convenient for crossing?

How much does crossing take? We probably arrive the border late in the evening.

Practically at any border crossing - waiting times can be quite long now (hours), usually late-evening-arrivals result in longer times (due to popular here "one-day shopping trips").

Pay attn that (if) rented cars cannot cross border from EU to Ukraine.

There are also web-cameras and estimatad crossing times on corresponding sites (eg http://www.granica.gov.pl/ ), but usally times are longer (than "estimated").

Better road - from Medyka-Shehyni crossing.

Hi, how did your crossing into Ukraine go please?

I'm planning to drive my own car into Ukraine from Poland in June, and then drive to Kiev, and then in July to drive back from Kiev to Poland.

Did you have any problems or delays ?

And where could you buy car insurance for Ukraine?

Thanks very much for any advice :)

If you can choose the date - drive on Sunday or (official) Polish holiday - as shops in Poland are closed - waiting line on the border will/should be shorter.
