 Kazakhstan Car Rental Mini guide

The road infrastructure has been greatly improved in recent years making driving in Kazakhstan very comfortable and safe so hiring a car is an excellent option. You can explore beyond the main road connecting the major towns and cities, but expect gravel roads in a poor state with pot holes very common. Take care not to cause damage to the rental car if exploring beyond the main highways as it would be a costly mistake. Renting an SUV may be a wise decision for the more adventurous and is competitively priced.

Kazakhstan’s only truly international airport is at Astana International. You can fly there from many European destinations including the UK with Air Astana’s flight from Heathrow. There are internal flights from Astana to the regions of Kazakhstan and if you want to see more of it, it’s certainly worth booking internal flights rather than attempting journeys of up to 24 hours by road. Your pre booked hire car can be collected at the airport upon arrival.
