Top tips for hiring a car in Kazakhstan

  • To hire a car in Kazakhstan, it is advisable to have a credit card. A lot of car hire providers need you to have a credit card to book a hire car and for payment. The credit card is used as a security deposit, in case the hire car is damaged or not paid for. However, some rental companies may accept debit cards or cash as an alternative, but this is less common.
  • Hiring a car in Kazakhstan offers several advantages over relying on public transport. It provides the freedom to explore the country at your own pace, allowing you to visit remote areas and off-the-beaten-path destinations. It offers greater convenience, as you can plan your own itinerary and have the flexibility to stop whenever and wherever you desire. Additionally, having a car ensures a comfortable and private travel experience, particularly in areas with limited or unreliable public transportation options.
  • Kazakhstan has set the legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit for driving at 0.03%. This means that it is against the law to operate a vehicle if your BAC exceeds this limit. Stringent consequences, such as fines and licence suspension, are imposed on individuals found driving under the influence. To prioritise the safety of both the driver and fellow road users, it is crucial to abstain from consuming alcohol before getting behind the wheel.
  • In Kazakhstan, driving is done on the right-hand side of the road. It is illegal to drive and use a mobile at the same time, unless you are using a hands-free device. Seat belts must be worn by all occupants in the vehicle, and children under the age of 12, or below a certain height, are required to use appropriate child restraints. Speed limits are posted in kilometres per hour within Kazakhstan.
  • Book your car hire in Kazakhstan at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
