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 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.

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!

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.

4×4 rental with driver in Kyrgyzstan

Some travellers may prefer to use the services of a driver to travel to Kyrgyzstan. This can have several advantages if you have no experience driving a 4×4 or mechanics in the event of a problem. Drivers are familiar with their vehicles, can serve as translators, and are used to driving on uncertain tracks.

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.

Almaz – The Toyota specialist in Bishkek

Rated 5 out of 5

If you are looking for an easy to drive and powerful 4×4, we recommend the Land Cruisers of Almaz! We call him Mr Toyota because he knows everything about these machines, a real mechanical ace! He has a fleet of 7 Toyota Land Cruisers (78, 75 series and Prado) that will take you everywhere!

Almaz speaks English and Russian. He will be able to explain you all the functions of the car and will give you very good advice for driving in Kyrgyzstan (especially with the local police).

Toyota Land Cuiser 78 & 75 series 4.2L diesel 130 HP

The legendary and timeless Land Cruiser symbolises absolute reliability. It is used by humanitarian organisations and long-distance travellers all over the world. Almaz has a trooper model (two seats and a berth inside) and an 8-seater model that can also be converted into a berth. See the photos opposite.

June to September 88 $/ day
May + October 77 $ / day
November to April 66 $ / day

Toyota Land Cuiser Prado 3.0L Turbo Diesel 164 HP

The Toyota Prado is one of the best all-terrain you can find in Kyrgyzstan. It is powerful and very comfortable! We rented this 4x4 in June 2017 for a 2-week trip and we didn't encounter any problems. Moreover, it is very easy to drive if you have never driven a 4x4 before.

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!

Hello to everyone,

I hired a Land Cruise in Bishkek.

The car performed perfectly, even on the most extreme off-roads. the staff was kind, professional and helpful.

I recommend this charterer to all tourists, even the most demanding ones.

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 !

    Nikita helped us a lot not only with renting a Toyota Sequoïa, but also with the organization of the entire 14-day trip around Kyrgyzstan. The car was great and never let us down. We also borrowed camping equipment from him and he helped us with a local SIM. On our last night in Bishkek, we were able to sleep in his very comfortable house and enjoy a small party with his friends. In a word, we want to go back!

    We just finished a 26 day trip with a toyota we rented with Nick.

    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!!

    If you want to do a trip in Kyrgystan, Nick is the guy to rent a car with!!!!

    Nous avons loué un des véhicules de Nick pour 3 semaines. L’expérience a été incroyable. Le véhicule était de très bonne qualité et hyper performant. Nick a été d’une grande aide en nous hébergeant gratuitement la première et dernière nuit de notre voyage et en nous conseillant sur le choix de notre itinéraire. Le matériel de camping loué avec le véhicule était très complet. Nous recommandons mille fois ce loueur.

    Great experience around Kyrgyzstan with Nick’s vehicle! The 4WD was well prepared and did a great job all along the road. It allowed us to explore remote parts of the country.

    Communication was also a very good point. Nick was very responsive, answered our question quickly during the trip and give us good advice to choose our route. We recommend!

The vehicle was in good condition, they have explained everything before we left with it, they provided us with tables and chairs as well as a bag full of everything needed to cook and eat our food. Anytime we had worries, needed recommendations, tips, etc, they were helpful and responsive! This was a big part of our budget for the month and was worth it !

          Thanks to Igor & Anna we had one of the best travels in our lives till now. The remote valleys of Kyrgizstan are marvelous! 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. But, let’s be honest, when driving cars, problems can happen right? If this is the case, you want help, and help and great service is what they offer.

          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.

Be careful, these old machines should be handled with care on the off-road sections! If you prefer to be accompanied, Alexey can guide you through the country, his tours are to be discovered here. He speaks Russian and English!
