4×4 rental in Kyrgyzstan: our recommendations in Bishkek and Osh

4×4 or van, insurance, road condition, rental companies, etc.

In this article, you will find all our tips to rent a 4×4 vehicle in Kyrgyzstan: Which model? van or 4×4? Insurance, driving rules, road conditions. We also suggest you a selection of reliable rental companies in Osh and Bishkek.

Travel guidebook about Kyrgyzstan, central Asia : 24 of the best off-road routes

Travel by 4×4 in Kyrgyzstan

Sheltering the foothills of the Himalayas, Kyrgyzstan is 90% mountainous. A few asphalt roads connect the largest towns (Bishkek, Osh, Karakol,…). Staying on these main roads means missing the beauty and diversity of the landscapes that the country offers. To access remote and wild areas, a 4wd vehicle will be essential. It is also possible to travel across the country by motorbike, mountain bike, on foot or on horseback. Beyond the discovery of sumptuous landscapes, this trip is also an immersion in the thousand-year-old nomadic culture of Central Asia. It is possible to sleep in yurts in the homes of locals or to camp in the middle of the mountains to enjoy a starry sky without light pollution.

Kyrgyzstan is home to thousands of trails suitable for exploration. Our book EXPLORE KYRGZYSTAN offers you a selection of 24 off-road routes across the country. If you have little or no experience, you should know that our routes are classified by difficulty level from 1 to 5 and 80% of them are in the easy or medium category.

If you wish to rent a 4×4 or a van in Kyrgyzstan, we recommend that you arrange this in advance. Despite there being ever more agencies, the demand is still greater than the supply.

What type of 4×4 to rent to travel in Kyrgyzstan?

There are many brands and 4×4 models, but not all of them are present in Kyrgyzstan. To help you, we wrote an article about the best 4×4s for rent. To this list of 4×4, you can add the Russian UAZ 4x4s, they will be less reliable than a Toyota Land Cruiser but have a nice vintage style!

The predominant brand in Kyrgyzstan and also in all of Central Asia is Toyota. If you have a problem during your road-trip with a Toyota car, it will be easier to find a garage and parts than for other less common brands. The UAZ, Nissan and Mitsubishi brands are also quite common.

Road condition in Kyrgyzstan

The roads connecting the main cities of Kyrgyzstan are paved. Although a lot of work has been carried out in recent years to improve the state of the road network, you should still travel carefully. The roads can be deteriorated by potholes, bumps and debris. Even on sections where the roads have just been finished, we do not recommend that you drive too fast.

When you leave the main roads, you will be on tracks where the conditions are very variable. To help you, we have classified the routes of the book EXPLORE KYRGYZSTAN by difficulty levels, from 1 to 5. As some routes are poorly maintained, their degree of difficulty may vary according to the weather and recent flooding or landslides. If in doubt about an itinerary, do not hesitate to ask the local people or the tourist offices.

Please note that some border areas require a permit. Order your permit online here. For more information on restricted areas, see the map here.

Rent a 4×4 in Bishkek

The majority of rental agencies are of course located in Bishkek. There are not many rental companies, but the market is growing. Here is a selection of serious and professional rental companies.

We had an amazing trip in Kyrgyzstan thanks to Nick. The vehicle we rented was perfect for off road conditions, and the camping equipment that came with the vehicle was very helpful! Nick was very accommodating and made our arrival in Bishkek seamless and easy. Additionally, he was kind enough to let us stay at his home on our last day in Kyrgyzstan. I highly recommend using this service and hope to work with nick again one day in the future!

Nous avons roulé environs 4000km dont beaucoup de pistes, avec un Land Cruiser Prado 120 TD, déjà kilométré, mais c’est l’un des véhicules les plus solides du monde. C’est en cas de problème que l’on voit le sérieux d’un loueur. J’ai par maladresse accidenté la porte arrière, au retour nous n’avons payé que la caution de 200$, le reste a été couvert par l’assurance, sans aucun souci. De plus Almaz parle bien anglais et est très sympathique.

We hired a Toyota Landcruiser for our two weeks trip in Kirgistan.

Driving about 4000km – mostly offroad and gravel roads – we had a great experience with that car. No problems at all.

Almaz is a down-to-earth professional in his business. It was reassuring to have his backup in case of any troubles.

Very recommended!

Nous avons loué 2 véhicules à Almaz : un landcruiser 78 troopy aménagé en camper et un landcruiser prado.

Les 2 véhicules ont complètement répondu à nos attentes à savoir :

– un 4×4 fiable permettant de dormir à l’intérieur confortablement à 2 pour le troopy

– un 4×4 fiable, puissant et très confortable pour des longues distances à 3 personnes ou plus

Almaz connaît parfaitement ses véhicules et les entretient très bien. Il est toujours disponible si besoin. Il peut fournir des équipements de camping et de cuisine.

Enfin, il équipe ses véhicules pour du off-road et sait que vous allez les utiliser pour toutes sortes de pistes même des difficiles. Cela permet de partir serein et confiant !

Nous ne pouvons que conseiller les 4×4 d’Almaz ! En 2017, nous avions loué un de ses Toyota Prado. Nous avons pu faire le col Tossor sans problème par exemple (voir nos traces dans notre article). Almaz parle couramment anglais. Tous ses véhicules sont très bien assurés, tout est carré avec lui, foncé 🙂 Un loueur de 4×4 comme on aimerait en trouver partout !

Notre voyage au Kirghizistan n’aurait pas été le même sans le véhicule de Nick !

Le 4X4 avec tente de toit était en parfait état. Nous n’avons eu aucun problème mécanique.

Nous avons été accueillis à son domicile le 1er jour, ce qui nous a permis de prendre tout le temps nécessaire pour les explications du fonctionnement du 4X4. Il a été d’une grande patience et son accueil a été top. Le nécessaire de camping était très complet !

Il a toujours été très réactif à nos messages et nous avons pu rester en contact avec lui pendant tout le séjour.

Il pourra aussi vous donner des conseils sur votre itinéraire car il connait très bien son pays.

Vous pouvez louer avec Nick les yeux fermés !

Merci Nick et à très bientôt !

My friend and I rented Nick’s Sequoia with rooftop tent and camping equipment for 3 weeks. I can honestly say that without the Sequoia our trip wouldn’t have been what it was! The car was amazing, held up beautifully and it was obvious Nick takes excellent care of his vehicles. Nick also hosted us the day we arrived and both him and his family were kind and hospitable. I would strongly recommend renting from Nick if you’re travelling to Kyrgyzstan!

PS. Thanks again Nick! You’re a legend. From your two Aussie travellers.

The roof tent was amazing, it’s easy to set up and there’s plenty of room for 2 people to sleep. Nick helped us getting the border permits and was always available for questions. We could also stay in his lovely house the day before we left. Would definitely recommend.

We rented a Toyota Sequoia from Nick during 10 days, including full equipment. We kept on adding equipments to the list and Nick had everything in perfect condition! We was very professional before and during the trip, easy to access and always very helpful. The car was perfect for driving the roads and tracks of Kyrgyzstan. Nick helped us get out of difficult situations tourists can get into with the road police for example. His knowledge of the country, willingness to help and professionalism helped us having an unforgettable trip! On top, Nick arranged all documents, currency change, border permits, SIM card and airport transfers for us, which saved us time and money. Thank you Nick!

We rented Toyota Sequoia, the car was very well maintained and in good condition and we had zero problems throughout the trip. The rooftent is definitely worth some extra bucks. Nick is the best guy you can rent from, he picked us up at the airport gave us some brekfast, helped us with the local SIM and exchanged EUR to KGS. He provided a lot of helpful tips for our trip and kept in touch throughout the trip to provide us information about road conditions. The last day we could stay at his house where he also provided us dinner and later some shashlik. I would strongly reccomend Nick to others who want to to rent a 4×4 in Kyrgyzstan.

We had one little problem with the vacuum pump and Nick was of great help sending a new one and arranging a mechanic close to where we were! The car was fixed in no time and off we were again for new adventures!! The car is very reliable and strong! It came with camping gear, which was perfect!!

When we got back to Bishkek we could stay at his house before leaving which was great!!

We loved our car, berry powerful for our off-road adventure and reliable. We drove through beautiful scenery thanks to the off-road book and we slept in the car in remote valleys.

    J’ai loué un Délicat avec eux à l’été 2019.

    Il est donc fortement possible que certains points négatifs mentionnés ici aient changé. Ce qui semble plus que probable quand je lis les autres avis.

    Je suis très exigeant sur la mécanique et je souhaite une fois de plus dire à quel point j’ai quand même été très satisfait par cette location.

    Nous avons fait 5000km en 2 semaines (KZ, UZ, TJ, KZ). Nous sommes passés par des pistes loin des sentiers battus et assez off-road.

    Nous avons donc vraiment beaucoup sollicité la mécanique.

    Igor est très sympa et arrangeant. Il est venu nous chercher à l’aéroport directement.

    Avoir un kit de pic nique inclus était super. Les bières et la vodka en cadeaux ont été bien reçues.

    Le Delica s’est révélé un etre un très bon franchisseur.

    Sa garde au sol est assez haute, ce qui permet de passer beaucoup d’obstacles sans problème.

    La prise d’air en hauteur et son poids sont rassurant pour les traversées de rivières et autres torrents.

    Son couple nous a permis de sortir quelques véhicules locaux coincés dans des situations délicates (pannes, rivières…) sans trop de problèmes et de grimper des inclinaisons importantes facilement.

    Les 7 places nous ont permis de prendre pas mal de locaux et de routards en stop et faire de belles rencontres.

    Igor est honnête et n’a pas posé de problèmes au moment de la récupération de la caution. C’est vraiment un mec attachant.

    Nous avons quand même rencontré quelques problèmes avec le véhicule:

    Je me permets d’être un peu dur vu les prix de location (les véhicules d’Igor sont quand même superbement maintenus pour la région).

    – Batterie morte au bout de 3000km (obligé d’en acheter une autre a Korogh)

    – Pneu voilé (rotation forcée avec celui de la roue de secours a Dushambe)

    – Clim très faible, difficile quand il fait 46C dehors

    – Rotules de suspension en fin de vie (ils n’ont pas lâché mais ont bien été présents dans notre esprit)

    Certains problèmes liés aux aléas des routes et pistes:

    – Phare avant qui se désolidarise de la carrosserie (duct tape et serre-joints à la rescousse + phare LED que j’avais amené avec moi)

    – Fermeture du capot qui casse (soudure de fortune dans le Wakhan)

    Au final je les recommande fortement même si j’aurais aimé un véhicule un peu mieux préparé étant donné le programme “musclé” que nous avons fait et dont nous avions discuter auparavant.

    Nous avons loué le van d’Anna et Igor 10 jours, début septembre 2021. Tout était absolument parfait, nous n’avons rien à redire : ne vous posez pas de questions et foncez. Anna et Igor sont arrangeants, à l’écoute, disponibles et veilleront à ce que tout aille bien pour vous tout au long de votre séjour. Leurs véhicules sont extrêmement bien équipés, vous y trouverez tout le nécessaire pour camper (matelas, gaz, vaisselle, table, chaises). Si Anna s’occupe du volet communication, Igor met un point d’honneur à ce que son parc automobile soit entretenu et fiable. Nous avons connu une panne et il n’a pas hésité à venir nous dépanner avec son mécanicien, alors même que nous étions à 5H de la capitale. Les routes sont difficiles au Kirghizistan et cette assistance est précieuse : elle vous permet de rouler beaucoup plus sereinement. Le Kirghizistan est un pays magnifique, qui mérite d’être exploré……. ….. Avec le van d’Anna et Igor 🙂

    Super véhicule loué par Anna et Igor. Il permet de prendre assez facilement les pistes, nous en avons testé une bonne partie de celles listées dans le livre (plutôt des niveaux 2 et 3), ça s’est très bien fait. Le + est le fait de pouvoir dormir dedans, ce qui permet de profiter davantage des paysages des pistes. Je vous recommande a 100% de louer votre véhicule chez Anna et Igor.

    • An all damage insurance is included in the price of the vehicle.
    • The insurance covers all damages to the car (which you pay only 200 USD).
    • If you have an accident with another car, your liability insurance covers you up to 9000 USD. The average cost of a car in Kyrgyzstan is USD 5000.
    • The insurance does not work if you drive it while intoxicated, if you seriously violate traffic regulations, or if you drive it to places where there are no roads at all. You can use our car for off-road driving, but it must be a track.
    • In case of a car breakdown, we proceed in stages:
    1.  We try to repair it on the spot with the help of the locals and the local garage. And if necessary, we ship it to Bishkek.
    2. If it cannot be repaired on the spot, we send you a replacement car if we have a spare car.
    3. If we don’t have a spare car, we send you a taxi with driver to drive you until we fix the problem.
    4. If even this doesn’t work, we return the money for the unused days.

      Driving rules in Kyrgyzstan

      The first driving rule in Kyrgyzstan is speed control. It is important to be attentive and to respect the speed limits. As we have said, the state of the roads and tracks can be very variable. Furthermore, Kyrgyz driving is not always exemplary, especially in cities where it is even more dangerous. You should also be careful because you will often come across animals which roam freely.

      Beware, the police are often present in the cities and on the main roads! If they stop you, only show them the papers they ask for: usually your driving licence and vehicle documents (“car passport”).Remember to check that the car hire company has given you the documents before you leave.

      In principle, it is compulsory to have an international driving licence or a licence translated into Russian by an official translator (do this in Bishkek before your trip if you have time). In practice, we have never had a problem with our native driving licence, but you may come across a scrupulous officer. The police have become quite strict in recent years and corruption is very present. 

      In Kyrgyzstan there is zero tolerance for drinking and driving so be careful with your alcohol consumption.

      Car insurance in Kyrgyzstan

      Since 2018, it has been compulsory to insure your vehicle in Kyrgyzstan.

      Rental vehicles usually have insurance included. It provides Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) coverage that covers a portion of the damage to the rental vehicle in the event of an incident.

      Nevertheless, it is important to note that if you have an accident with a Kyrgyz driver, they are often not insured themselves and they settle out of court. Depending on the damage, you can call the police to establish the accident.

      We also recommend that you have a small budget for repairs, as a simple puncture can happen very quickly!
