Top tips for renting a car in Kazakhstan

  • You’ll find that renting a car in Kazakhstan is the best way to get around, allowing you the freedom to travel at your leisure, without having to rely on transport schedules or trains or buses that don’t service your needs. From Almaty, you can reach Zharkent to the east, close to the Chinese border, in around three hours and 15 minutes. From here you can also visit the magnificent Altyn Emel National Park. From Astana in the north, you can reach Petropavi, near the Russian border, in around five and a half hours by car, which is half the time it takes by train.
  • Prior to collecting your vehicle, be aware of the numerous requirements for renting a vehicle in Kazakhstan, as well as local driving restrictions. To rent a vehicle, for example, you must first acquire an International Driving Permit in addition to a valid driving license. Children under the age of 12 must use child safety seats when traveling with their parents.
  • When traveling around Kazakhstan's cities, you'll notice that the quality of the road surfaces varies, with some renovation still needed in some locations. Furthermore, if you drive along country roads between the country's more urban areas, you are likely to encounter some difficult driving conditions, both in terms of the road surface and the sometimes-icy winter temperatures. It is critical that you carefully select your vehicle, with an SUV being the greatest option for control, comfort, and traction.
  • If you’re thinking about traveling around Kazakhstan but need to return your rental vehicle in another location, then you can arrange a one-way rental. When booking through KAYAK and with companies such as Europcar, Avis, and Hertz, among others, the rental company will gladly add this to your agreement, and you can return the car to another branch of your choice within the country. This is very useful, especially when you find yourself at the opposite end of the region.
  • Book your rental car in Kazakhstan at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Kazakhstan are around -1% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Kazakhstan

  • What is driving like in Kazakhstan?

    Even though there will most likely be a language barrier, driving as a foreigner in Kazakhstan is not difficult. Rules and regulations are in place to ensure your safety on the huge open road, so simply follow them and the locals will likely be as helpful as they can. Cars drive on the right here, while pedestrians have right of way on all roads. You are expected to give way to vehicles turning right at roundabouts and intersections, and out on the country roads, traffic lights are scarce, so right of way depends on where the vehicle is coming from.

  • How old do you have to be to rent a car in Kazakhstan?

    You must be at least 23 years old to rent a car in Kazakhstan, although they do allow 18-year-old drivers to drive. They also have a maximum rental age of 75 years old. If you do not fit into one of these groups, car rental businesses will most likely levy a premium or require more stringent insurance packages.

  • How are gas prices in Kazakhstan?

    Generally, you’ll find gas prices are quite reasonable in Kazakhstan, with a gallon of gasoline setting you back around 800 KZT (1.75 USD) which works out to be about 210 KZT (0.45 USD) per liter. Be mindful of filling up your rental car when you’re in urban areas, especially if you plan to drive the long distances that make up this vast country. It’s worth keeping a gas can full for those long drives, just in case a petrol station is hard to come by.

  • What are the speed limits in Kazakhstan?

    When you’re driving on roads in the cities, highways, and rural areas of Kazakhstan, you must keep to strict speed limits. Local law enforcement can come down hard on speeding violations, so be mindful to respect speed limits to avoid any issues. In urban areas like Almaty and Astana, you can drive up to 60 km/h (37 mph), which reduces to 20 km/h (12 mph) in residential zones. On open country roads, you can drive at 90 km/h (56 mph), and when on motorways the limit is 110 km/h (68 mph).
