Rental Information

Driver’s License Requirements 

In Uzbekistan, you must have your driver’s license for at least 2 years in order to rent a car, although be aware that this time frame varies for different vehicle categories. Please refer to the booking page for further rental information. For driver’s licenses from countries not listed in the Vienna convention, you will require an official translation of the document in Russian/Uzbek. An International Driving Permit must also accompany driver’s licenses in a non-Roman alphabet.  

Age Restrictions 

The minimum age to rent a car in Uzbekistan is 25.  

Refueling 

In Uzbekistan, your vehicle will be provided with a full tank of fuel. Please fully refuel your vehicle before returning to avoid incurring fees. Alternatively, you can purchase a tank of fuel at a competitive rate when you pick up your vehicle, although no refund will be given for unused fuel.  

Credit Card Payment 

At SIXT we accept all internationally recognized credit cards such as MasterCard or VISA. In Uzbekistan, we also accept cash payments. Also please make sure the credit card is in the name of the driver and be aware that you may need the card’s PIN.  

Driving Tips

A drive through Uzbekistan takes you some of the key historic parts of the Silk Road, although you should watch for potholes along the way. Though the roads in larger cities and major connections are good, there are many stretches with damage. You also should be aware if you are planning to travel over long distances that fuel can be scarce. Police checkpoints and stops are very common throughout the country and the enforcement of road rules is strict. 

Here are some more tips for driving in Uzbekistan:

  • The driver entering the roundabout has the right of way, meaning if you are already on the roundabout you will have to stop to let them through. This is the opposite of the European driving rule.  
  • Be aware of animals on the road.  
  • You must not drive under the influence of alcohol or other substances.  
  • Crossing an unbroken white line is an offense.  

General speed limits in Uzbekistan 

  • You are permitted to drive 100 km/h (62 mph) on intercity routes. 
  • In urban areas, the speed limit is generally 50 km/h (31 mph).  

Crossing Borders

Cross-border travel with your rental car in Uzbekistan is not allowed.  

Places of Interest

Top 4 Architectural Sights 

The beautiful Kalon Mosque in Bukhara is most famous for its minaret made of mud that dates to 1127. It is said Genghis Khan found it remarkable and saved the minaret from destruction as the city was rampaged. Ichon-Qala is the old town of Khiva, and perhaps one of the most enchanting Silk Road cities thanks to its preservation. Khiva thrived during the silk trade and the trading fort dates to the 8th Century. The Registan public square in Samarkand is one of the country’s most extraordinary architectural masterpieces, with many of its standout structures built during the Timurid Dynasty. Next to the Registan, the ornate Bibi-Khanym Mosque has stood for more than 600 years and is still one of the largest in the world. 

 Top 4 Natural Sights 

Greater Chimgan is the highest point in the Chatkal mountain range around 70 miles from Tashkent. The mountains and surrounding areas are a popular spot for rock climbing, skiing, and hiking. The archaeological site Ayaz-Kala is actually 3 ancient fortresses that rise out of Kyzyl Kum desert plains. You can visit them with tours from Khiva. Though tragically the Aral Sea has shrunk in volume by 90 percent since the 1960s due to disastrous irrigation policies, what remains of the Aral Sea is still popular with tourists who visit to bathe in the waters and visit rusting boats in the cemetery of ships. The Sarmish-say petroglyphs are located in the Karatou mountain range and date to the Bronze Age.
