Hiring a car in Armenia

Before you book your car hire, here are a few tips and rules you should know about driving in Armenia

Does Armenia have any unique traffic laws?

Getting around Armenia is easy if you plan on using rental cars, but there are many driving laws that you should know about. In Armenia, you will drive your car rental on the right-hand side of the road. The speed limit for driving within urban areas is 12 mph. If you drive inside or outside the city limits, your speed limits are 37 mph and 56 mph, respectively. On the motorway, the speed limit is 70 mph. If you have any children under the age of 12, they're not allowed to sit in the front seats in the car. If you are sitting in the front seats, you will be required to wear a seat belt. However, it's not compulsory to wear a seat belt in the back seats. If you need to answer your mobile while driving, you must have hand-free software installed in the car. Many car rental companies can do this for you. It's illegal to have any amount of alcohol in your body when you drive around in Armenia, as they have a zero-tolerance policy.

What are the legal and documentation requirements for renting a car in Armenia?

To drive rental cars in Armenia, you will need to have your driver's licence, your passport, an international driver's permit (IDP), your rental car insurance documents and any documents that show that the rental car is registered in your name. It is also required that you have a warning triangle, fire extinguisher, and first aid kit in the car with you. These items will be given to you by your car hire company when you get your hire car. You can only hire a rental car in Armenia if you are over the age of 21. However, if you are under 25, you may need to pay for additional insurance. This is 'young drivers' insurance, which is needed as younger drivers tend to get into more accidents than more experienced drivers.

Which areas of Armenia have the most traffic?

When driving in Armenia, you do need to be aware of the possible traffic you may encounter. Some busy cities in Armenia are Yerevan (Armenia's capital city), Gyumri, Vanadzor, and Vagharshapat. Yerevan has the most traffic within the country, and it can get especially bad during rush hours. The infrastructure of Yerevan is good, so you won't need to worry about hitting a pothole. Almost all the roads throughout the country are properly tarred, and you won't need to drive on gravel roads unless you plan on going off-road. If you plan on going to Armenia during the winter, be sure to get winter tyres in your car. During this time of year, the roads get a lot of snow; therefore, they can be hard to navigate.

What are the best scenic roads in Armenia?

A great use of your car hire in Armenia is to make a road trip across the country. There are many scenic roads for you to enjoy during your trip. One trip we recommend is the Sisian-Goris Highway. This road takes you into the unknown and has beautiful mountain and landscape views. Another trip you should make is the road heading towards Karahunj, which is called the 'Armenia Stonehenge'. This area has many archaeological finds and is another great spot for mountain views. If you want a small break from only mountain views, you should take your rental car to Spandaryan reservoir, where you can see the stunning body of water.
