Hertz in Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan, with its vast diversity of natural beauty and picture-perfect towns and villages, makes perfect the perfect destination for a driving holiday. Hertz Car Rental has several branches in the country’s capital, Baku, offering a range of premium quality vehicles, letting you conveniently and comfortably explore the wider region at your own pace. If you’re here for leisure purposes, then you’ll discover Azerbaijan is a fascinating and unique destination that’s full of surprises.

Tourism in Azerbaijan is in its infancy, so there are plenty of opportunities to revel in its unspoilt landscapes and take your time wandering its historic and beautifully preserved towns. Baku, with its medieval core and new boutique shopping outlets, is a natural starting point, but don’t overlook the wonders of Qobustan National Park with its prehistoric cave graffiti.

Rules and regulations for Driving in Azerbaijan

Hertz has three car rental branches in Azerbaijan, at key locations in Baku. Hiring a car in Baku to explore the rest of this marvellously diverse country is easy and stress-free, and you’ll be on your way in no time at all.

The traffic regulations and speed limits in Azerbaijan may differ somewhat too what you’re normally used to, and you need to be aware of a number of the regulations in force here before you head out. You must for instance be at least 17 years old to rent a car through Hertz in Azerbaijan, and there’s also an upper age limit of 75 years. As Azerbaijan is not an EU member country you will need an International Driving Permit (IDP), as well as your full driving licence.

The alcohol limit for driving in Azerbaijan is zero, and driving under the influence of any amount of alcohol is treated as a serious criminal offence, subject to hefty fines.

Azerbaijani roads are in generally decent condition in the bigger towns and cities, although outside of Baku it is not advisable to drive after dark because there is a tendency for animals to wander across the roads. The signage is good, but traffic lights at some junctions use a four-phase system that is probably unfamiliar to many visitors.

• It is not permitted to travel at speeds of less than 50km/h on highways.
• In Azerbaijan you drive on the right-hand side of the road.
• Some intersections have a green-yellow-red-yellow-green sequence of lights.

Special attractions

The Heydar Aliyev Centre in the capital, Baku, is home to a special exhibition of classic cars arranged by the Automobile Federation of Azerbaijan. Featuring British, Italian, French, German and US models as well as those from former Soviet republics, it’s a must-see for all motor enthusiasts. The exhibition also features many publications about classic cars, and road signs from various periods. The centre also has many other exhibitions on the history and culture of Azerbaijan, which visitors will find interesting.

The National Art Museum of Azerbaijan is also well worth a visit, and the Azerbaijan Carpet Museum has many fine examples of the country’s proud history of carpet-weaving on display. There’s even a Miniature Books Museum, and for visitors with a love of history, the Taghiyev History Museum and Xan Evi should be on the itinerary too.

Quick Information:

• Minimum car rental age: The minimum age to rent a car is 17 years old.

• Maximum car rental age: The Maximum age to rent a car is 75 years old.

• Average speed limits: The average speed limit is 20 km/h in built-up areas, 60 km/h on open roads and 110 km/h on highways.

• Documentation: Keep your passport and visa with you at all times because the traffic police often conduct spot checks. You also need to have a valid driving licence and an International Driving Permit (IDP). Proof of ownership of the vehicle should be kept handy too. Fines can be imposed for failing to produce any of these documents.

• Rural roads: Many of the rural roads in Azerbaijan are not in great condition and are not lit at night, so it’s advisable to drive across the country only during daytime. Carry a red triangle in the boot in case of breakdown.

• Overtaking: This is not permitted on railway crossings and bridges, and signalling before any such manoeuvre is mandatory.

• Parking: Although Azerbaijan is attempting to bring parking regulations into line with Western European standards, this process is incomplete and you’ll find that even in Baku illegal roadside parking goes largely unpunished. An additional 300 controlled parking slots were recently introduced to the city, but in rural areas controlled parking is often non-existent. It’s still advisable, if you must pull over, to switch the warning lights on and display a warning triangle after dark.

• Traffic police: If you do happen to be pulled over by a policeman, stay in your car until he comes to you, introduces himself and asks for your proof of identity, driving licence and ownership.
