KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Almaty

  • Almaty has a wide network of public transportation, including metros and the trolleybus, but nothing beats exploring this city's rich culture than Almaty car rentals. With the freedom of car rentals, you can go to Zvozdnaya Polyana, approximately 20 miles away, and the Golden Warrior Monument, about 18 miles away.
  • There are several car rentals at Almaty International Airport (ALA), including Hertz, Avis, and Europcar. Most Car rentals in Almaty at the airport are located near Terminal Floor 1 or Terminal Floor 2. The airport provides shuttle services that connect passengers to car rental offices. These shuttles operate from 4 am to 12 midnight. When renting a car, you can expect long queues because car rentals are in high demand in the city. Therefore, consider booking in advance to pick up your car at the agency's location when you need it.
  • You'll realize the streets have light traffic when driving car rentals in Almaty. Though the streets have well-marked lanes, some drivers could ignore these markings.

When driving, remember the city has zero tolerance for alcohol.
  • You can experience traffic when driving car rentals in Almaty in the morning and evening rush hours. Road congestion mostly occurs between 6 am to 9 am and between 5 pm and 8 pm. The most affected street in the city is Al-Farabi Avenue because it's one of the main roads. The best way to avoid traffic is to begin your journey earlier to avoid being caught in traffic. It can also be challenging to drive a car during winter. Most roads are covered in snow, become icy, and can affect a car’s stability. So, choose a rental car with winter tires and drive slowly for a successful journey.

Cons:

We were told this Avis pickup was at the Almaty, Kz airport. That was not the case and not speaking the language, it was difficult to communicate. We finally took a half hour taxi to where we told we could pick up the car, The Intercontinental Hotel, and even though on our reservation it was represented that this would be open 24/7, which we needed since we arrived after 1:00 a.m., this office was closed, that we should return at 10:00 a.m. We then had to walk to our hotel with our bags and immediately canceled the reservation upon these misrepresentations.
