Hertz in Baku

Hertz has three branches offering hassle-free car rental in Baku, making it a simple matter to take control of your transport in and around the city, instead of relying on public transport. Using your own hire car is definitely the preferred option for getting around Baku. The city has an excellent road network with clear signage, and it’s also easy to reach other attractions in the area if you’re here for business or a leisure visit.

Baku is one of the most fascinating of the former Soviet satellite capitals, changing rapidly but still retaining its ancient history at the same time. The Old City is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has a beautifully preserved medieval citadel wall. The graceful stone mansions, chic cafés and exclusive shopping boutiques which surround this historic core attract admiring visitors throughout the year, and Baku also has several excellent museums and art galleries. With a hire car at your disposal you can also easily access the parks and forests of the surrounding region.

Driving and Parking in Baku

To rent a car in Baku you will have to be 21 years of age, and you should also note that there is an upper age limit for driving any vehicle in Azerbaijan, of 75 years. You are also not allowed to drive your Hertz car beyond the borders of Azerbaijan. You will need to have an International Driving Permit (IDP) as well as your full licence and passport if you are arriving in Baku from abroad. For more information on driving regulations in Baku, please refer to our page about renting a car in Azerbaijan.

As one expects in bigger cities around the world, driving in and around Baku during the morning and evening rush hours is not recommended, as your trip is likely to be delayed due to the inevitable congestion.

Parking in Baku, which was poor for a long time, has been recently greatly improved thanks to the introduction of 300 extra temporary parking slots at various points around the inner part of the city. Parking in Baku is not as rigorously enforced as it is in most Western European cities, and it’s possible to park at the roadside in less congested zones. There are also a number of private parking lots in the city, and many of the major attractions have their own parking arrangements.

Key Routes

When you rent a car in Baku you’ll find that the roads are decently maintained and that signage is for the most part comprehensive and clear. Baku has a decent road network and you can use your car from Hertz to get to all parts of the city quickly, outside of rush hours. If you want to be sure that you don’t miss your turning, then Hertz Car Rental does offer in-car navigation systems that will help you get around.

Baku authorities have implemented the Intellectual Transport Management System (ITMS) to control traffic flow and ease congestion on roads like Rashid Behbudov Avenue and Babak Avenue, two of the roads most frequently used to get across the city and onto the main highways.

The main roads into Baku were renovated in preparation for the 2015 European Games, and many overhead crossings and underground passages have been built since then. There are at present no toll roads, but there are plans to introduce them across the country.

Major Highways

The main highway in Azerbaijan for international traffic is the Baku-Ganja-Qazach Corridor, which runs to the border with Georgia. The North-South Transept Corridor runs between the Russian border and Iran, and there are 25,000km of minor roads with quick and easy access to these major highways. The roads in general are in a decent state of repair, although there are plans to upgrade many of them to meet European standards.
