KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Almaty

  • Arriving in the large, cultural city of Almaty, in Kazakhstan, will place you in one of the most interesting and underrated European cities when it comes to arts, music and natural wonders. The Abai Kazakh Academic Opera, the museums and the Ballet Theatre are just some of the reasons to look into cheap car hire in Almaty. With the snow-tipped mountains in the background, road trips are calling from all sides of the city. With some of the most scenic parks in the country, take your Almaty car hire out and see Big Almaty Lake with the Tian Shan Astronomical Observatory, explore the trails of the Trans-Ili Alatau mountains or venture further out to the Charyn Canyon, which is a gigantic sandstone canyon set in the east of Almaty.
  • Your Almaty car hire will likely come from Almaty Airport (ALA) or the local Avis, set in the city centre. When you fly into the city, you will find a Hertz based at the airport. Book ahead of time through KAYAK, then land, grab your luggage and drive your car hire in Almaty straight off the lot into your adventures.
  • Driving in Almaty is incredibly safe and easy, with the city’s infrastructure being compared to Europe more than any other city in Kazakhstan. You will drive on the right-hand side of the road and find the roads and infrastructure to be mostly well maintained in the city centre. As a large, modern city, you will not find it very different from what you are used to, but as you venture out into the mountains, arid stretches of land and vast forests, you will notice a great difference in road surfaces and terrains. Book your Almaty car hire according to your plans to ensure you have a suitable vehicle for your needs. As an Islamic state, you will find that Kazakhstan has zero tolerance for any kind of drinking and driving.
  • A challenging part of driving your cheap car hire in Almaty will be road signs, which will be in Kazakh and Russian and won’t offer English alternatives. This is less of a problem in the city centre, but any adventuring may leave you to fend for yourself with communication, and that will include traffic officers. It is wise to drive with patience and be polite to avoid being pulled over. The winter months produce snow and challenging road conditions that will need vigilance. The tolled motorway in the city will be paid in cash, so you should not expect a bill upon returning your car.
  • Book your car hire in Almaty at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard car hire in Almaty are around -29% cheaper than other car types, on average

Alternatively, finding a hotel, apartment block, shopping centre or other public venue is a safe bet.

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.
