If you're planning on hiring a car in Almaty and exploring the city, you'll need to be aware of a couple of requirements before getting to one of the car hire locations in Almaty. You won't be able to pick up one of the cheap car hires in Almaty if you're younger than 21, and you must have at least two years of driving experience. You may need an International Driving Permit for your domestic licence; enquire about this with your car hire company beforehand. Please also remember to keep your confirmation details with you, a passport for photo identification, as well as the credit card used to secure the online booking. If you aren't the owner of the credit card, the owner will need to be present.
To make sure you and other drivers stay safe while driving around in your Kazakhstan car hire, you'll need to familiarise yourself with the local road rules. Staying up to date with the local motor vehicle department is a good way to be aware of sudden rule changes. Remember to keep to the right-hand side of the road while driving and pass slower traffic on the left. If your passengers are over 12, they must wear a seatbelt all the time; if younger, they must be strapped into a child seat in the rear of the Almaty car hire. Drinking and driving is illegal, and if your blood alcohol level is above 0.05%, you face large fines and possibly jail time.
When driving your car hire in Almaty, you'll find that some of the roads, particularly on the outskirts, may not be in the best condition. If you're planning on driving long routes or travelling to other cities, consider picking up an SUV or 4X4 cheap car hire, this will make navigating the roads a little easier. If you're sticking inside the city, a lighter model will suit you just fine. They're also much lighter on fuel and handling the car is much easier. If you want to save a little more on fuel, opt for a hired car with an automatic transmission rather than a manual.
When parking your Almaty car hire, make sure to stick to the laws, which means no parking on bridges, overpasses, dual carriageways near residential areas or close to railway crossings. You'll find plenty of paid parking in the city, with both paid and unpaid on-street parking close to the city centre, and parking garages which have security guards. Parking garages are the safer option, and we'd suggest these wherever possible.
