Tip3: Renting conditions and requirements

When hiring a car in Armenia, keep in mind to get familiar with these necessary requirements beforehand.

  • Driving in Armenia with foreign license. An identification card and driving permit is required. The period of validity should be less than a year. The information of the driver’s permit must be written in Latin letters, and the driver should be less than 21 y/o to be able to drive a car.
  •  Travelcar offers you various insurance packages such as TPl (Third Party Liability) or CDW (Collision Damage Waiver). When travelling to a new country you are not aware of traffic rules, driving offences, sometimes, incidents or car damages may occur. Hence, insurance can help you avoid certain charges.
  •  Yerevan is full of red-lined parking lots. Be watchful as when parking there for more than 15 minutes, otherwise you will be fined.
  • Return the car in the same condition the way you took it, and not later than the specified date/time in the agreement, to avoid additional charges.

Roads in Armenia

On the whole, roads in Armenia are well-paved, asphalted and safe for drivers. However, if you plan to go to the countryside, SUVs are ideal for off road trips as they are more comfortable and suitable for the climate. Rent a car in Yerevan with Travelcar and head to explore Armenia.
