Armenia's placement on the map between neighbouring continents and its long and storied history are just two of the features which have lent it great importance to travellers. Forming part of the Silk Road which has linked traders and travellers between Europe and the Far East since ancient times, the country's location in the Caucasus (the region between Southwest Asia and Eastern Europe) should allow those who hire a car in Armenia to fully explore the surrounding areas. Enjoy a trip to the capital Yerevan, whose distinctive architecture gives it the "Pink City" nickname, as well as the beautiful scenery in neighbouring areas.
It's possible to drive to Armenia via neighbouring Turkey or Iran, and upon arrival in the capital of Yerevan in the southwest, visit the city's museum complex which houses several different institutions of history and art. From the city the Ararat plain is clearly visible, including the majestic mountain itself - in the bible it's said to have been the place where Noah's ark landed following the floods. Car hire in Armenia gives you the chance to explore this wonderful country, whose historical relics are visible wherever you go - with none more prominent than the Etchmiadzin Cathedral in Vagharshapat - a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Although you can arrive by car in Armenia via some countries, it's important to note that other road borders to Turkey and Azerbaijan are closed, which limits the possibilities for cross-country driving somewhat. However, it's still possible to navigate to these countries via other neighbours. Some roads tend to be in a poor state of repair so caution is advised when using the roads, especially during winter months.
With a wide range of travellers passing through our locations every day, we've got a wide range of vehicles on offer to suit your needs - from smart executive saloons to compact family hatchbacks. ***

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
