Top tips for renting a car at Almaty airport

  • Car rentals at Almaty Airport (ALA) offer a suitable alternative means of transport especially for those who want to enjoy self-driving to the city center or any other destination of their choice within Almaty or other neighboring cities. Baum Grove and Fantasy World Almaty are some of the popular attraction sites near ALA that you can conveniently visit using a rental car picked up at the airport. Although buses are a cheaper transport option for travelers connecting from ALA, renting a car saves you from the inconvenience of longer queues at various bus stops.
  • You can get your preferred car rental at Almaty from either Hertz or Avis, which are the only agencies with rental counters inside the airport. Both companies have their counters located inside the rental car facility adjacent to the baggage claim area. After collecting your luggage, you can conveniently walk to this rental car facility by following the “Rent-A-Car” sign. There, you will find Avis’ or Hertz’s agents readily available to serve you.
  • For you to pick up a car rental at Almaty Airport, you must be 23 years old or older and have a valid driver’s license. The license must be in your name and must have been in your possession for a period of no less than 2 years. The two Almaty Airport car rental companies, Hertz and Avis, may allow drivers aged 21 years to rent a car at the airport. However, such drivers must pay a daily underage fee. However, outside ALA, most of the car rental companies allow drivers between 18 and 22 years to rent a car upon paying a small daily underage fee.
  • Persons with reduced mobility (PRMs) have nothing to worry about when seeking to use car rentals at Almaty Airport. Hertz and Avis both avail various accessible amenities in their cars, including spinner knobs and hand controls, for individuals with disabilities. The good news is that these companies do not charge any fees to avail such devices to drivers who need them. If you are accompanied by your kid(s), you can conveniently get a booster seat, child car seat, or infant seat depending on the age of your child from Hertz or Avis. However, you will have to pay a small daily fee for each of these child-friendly amenities.
  • Book your rental car at Almaty airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

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.
