Car Hire in Yerevan, Armenia

With Avan Guard we suffered a bad experience hiring a 7 seater Toyota Prado with driver for the four of us for 5 days. The driver was fine but the management continuously misled us. Initially they sent a 5 seater to pick us up due to a mechanical problem with the Prado. They only agreed to replace it the next day after much phoning and insisting we give $50 to pay for the petrol to swap the cars between Goris & Yerevan. At the end of the 5 days although we had left Yerevan with an empty tank they wanted us to leave the Prado full. After nearly an hour on the phone we insisted that we would not pay more than another $50 which represented enough fuel to cover over 1600 kms when we had only done 1000. Not to be trusted.

11. Re: Car Hire in Yerevan, Armenia

Can I rent a car in Yerevan and then drive to Tbilisi for a two days trip? Any problem for a rental car to cross the border?

Should I hire a taxi for the two days trip, or can I rent a car with driver? I will go with my wife and my 2 young children.

What should be the daily car rental rate including zero or very low CDW excess? If the rate is high, is it possible to hire a car with driver for day time?

Thanks.

Hi Lin,

Can I suggest you read my earlier mails on this thread. I am certain the company I use when there will assist you although I have never driven to Tbilisi myself during my visits. One thing is certain they have safe drivers, good vehicles and speak English. Give them a try.

I have today received an update on a post I placed some good time ago wherein I offered advice based on my own experience gathered over visiting Armenia more than 50 times over a 23 year period. I was of the opinion that comments in both reports and on forums were based on ones experiences in terms of places to visit, costs, recommendations etc. it was therefore more than a little surprising that I should be advised of an "answer" to my post only to view 3 or more pure adverts emanating from a car hire company. They may well be exceptional, I have no knowledge of them but I do believe we the users of this forum should be guided by our fellow travellers and not the hard sell of any form of business organization.

Hi, I was saddened to read of your experiences more so when it is a repeat of the story told by others over the years.

I am and have been since 1988 a very frequent visitor to Armenia and have like others been the subject of shoddy service in the past. It was for that reason that I wrote (more than once) offering my advice on car hire, be it self drive or chauffeur driven hire. I have for several years now used Beau Monde Hire located within (but not part of) the Marriot Hotel. The lady that runs this company and her drivers are honest, helpful and will provide all would be hirers with a level of service that is based on sound vehicles and hard working English speaking drivers.
