Almaty Guide

The city of Almaty is the new found capital of Kazakhstan and is a fast growing city. Almaty's image for the future is that of a garden-city, with plans being introduced currently for further development of a safe and inviting city. Almaty has many interesting sights, including a set of 125 fountains located across the city that are a tourist's delight.

The most famous fountain is the Oriental Calendar fountain, which represents the 12 animals of the Kazakh calendar, very similar to the Chinese animal cycle. Almaty was also considered for the 2011 Olympic Winter Games but was rejected but did win the host for the 2011 Winter Asian Games. Almaty is also the largest city in Kazakhstan, making it was likely candidate to compete for the 2022 Olympic Games in the future.

An interesting fact about Almaty is that it is named after the apple that is indigenous to the area. Almaty literally means 'rich with apple' and is known for its great genetic diversity of apples around and in its area. The world's largest apple is also located in Almaty.

Another popular attraction in Almaty is the aerial tramway that takes visitors to Kok Tobe which is a hill to the southeast where there is a large television tower for the city of Almaty as well as a variety of amusement parks for tourists as well as locals. Also on the hill are a variety of restaurants that are geared specifically towards tourists in the area.

All of Almaty is able to be viewed from a car hire. You will want to hire a car early and really take advantage of the beauty and scenery with no holds barred. No travel group or taxi service can give you the great views that you can find from a car hire.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
