Wheely is an international car service, available in London, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sochi, Kazan, Yekaterinburg, Perm and Krasnodar.

In 2010, Anton Chirkunov, who had extensive experience in the use of various car services and remained dissatisfied with most of them, as well as Paul Bocharov and Ivan Samsonov, decided to create their own service with the level of quality that they themselves could enjoy.

Requesting a car is done through the mobile app, available on iOS, Android and Windows. Instantly being able to request a car with prompt supply of unmarked and clean vehicles, professional drivers and impeccable attitude to the client contributes to the Wheely reputation of being the most comfortable way to travel. Rides are paid for with a credit/debit card linked to the user’s account so there’s no need to search for cash to pay the driver.
