03:20 PM Arrive at Noam Elimelech: Tehillim & Dinner (Takeaway)
04:20 PM Depart to Rzeszów-Jasionka Airport
05:15 PM Rental Car Return
05:30 PM Depart to Ostroh (Vulytsya Papanina, 13, Ostroh, Rivnens'ka oblast, Ukraine)
12:00 AM Arrive at Maharsha

We are then going to visit:

Hannapil
Shepitivka
Polonne
Berdychiv
Medyzhbizh
Uman

The question is, are there any viable lodging options in Ostroh, Hannapil, or, Shepitivka?

As of now I've got Hotel Ukraine Rivne, 25 minutes off the route.

Any other suggestions?

I remember paying $200 for 8 hours of driving and 4 hours of waiting (12 total).
Or maybe $225. In a 5 seater "jeep" (he called it a jeep, it was a Toyota but had more room than a car.)
I'm not who you think I am.

Between ˘18-27 a kilometer for a car (depends what type of car) and between ˘25 -33 for a van. This includes the car, driver and gas.
You usually don't pay for waiting time but if you stop overnight, you have to pay the driver for a bed, in Uman and Mezibush it's $7

You also have to pay for the kilometers when the driver comes to you and when he returns home. If the driver lives in Uman and picks you up in Lvov and drops you off at KBP, you'll have to pay for the kilometers to/from Uman.

We are four people so I guess a car would be good. I am looking for 2 or 3 drivers so we don't have to pay for overnight or for the driver's long trip back home.
This is what we are looking for:

April 30: I need a driver based out of Rivne, Ukraine to pick us up from Rzeszow Airport and drive us to Ukraine Hotel in Rivne, Ukraine
May 01: I need that same driver, or a Medzhybizh based driver to drive us from Rivne to Medzhybizh  stopping in Ostroh, Shepetivka, Polonne, and Berdychiv along the way.
May 02: I need a Medzhybizh or Kiev based driver to drive us from Medzhybizh to Uman and then to Boryspil Airport.

Do you have any leads I can contact via email?

I usually use Poyechali or Uber where available (and sometimes cheaper).
AFAIK Poyechali only has drivers from Uman but sometimes they'll have in Mezibush and Kiev (after dropping off other travelers) and you won't get charged to/from Uman (you have to specifically ask for it).

I don't have any leads for Rivne, you can try to reach out to Rabbi Bald from Lvov to see if he has anything in that area.

Sometimes it's better to walk across the border and have a another driver wait you there
