Sometimes when you travel to a new country you want to explore everything on your own. One of the best ways to do that is by renting a car. However, it can get pricey at times. But you always have the option of renting cheaper cars and especially, if you travel with a group of friends, the cost will justify your decision. I selected two cheap car rentals in Yerevan and I want to share an overview of their services with you.

As you probably know, I will be waiting for your reactions on Instagram or Twitter with #ArmeniaTravelTips. Just let me know which car rental company you chose and how did your trip go. I am curious to read your messages so don’t make me wait. 🙂
Swift Rent a Car – my favorite budget car rental in Armenia
Swift Rent a Car is one of those companies that want to be close to the customers all the time. That’s probably why they offer 24/7 airport delivery, hotel delivery, and to-my-door services. In all these cases, you get the car delivered to you free of charge. You only need to provide your location information and they’ll do the rest for you. It’s also very easy to make a booking on their website.
As I care about your safety, I think it’s a good idea to get some tips on what to expect from driving in Armenia. For that, just have a look at my post and only then make up your mind to drive here. Sometimes the roads are not in the best condition. Also, Swift Rent a Car offers you the option to hire a driver. So, if you don’t have a license or just simply want to seat in the back and enjoy your road trip without driving, this is your go-to service.
The prices mentioned below are presented for short-term car renting, in USD, and for different car models. For long-term rental inquiries, contact the Swift team. The good news is that their prices are even cheaper when you rent the car for a longer duration.
Car rental rates
|Fleet||Price for 1 day||Price for 4-6 days|
|Ford Fiesta or similar||57||48|
|Kia Rio or similar||62||53|
|Kia Rio X-Line or similar||69||59|
|Hyundai Elantra or similar||71||61|
|Nissan Kicks or similar||77||65|
|Renault Duster or similar||81||69|
|Toyota Camry or similar||86||74|
|Jeep Compass or similar||94||80|
|Kia Sorento or similar||104||88|
Note that at Swift Rent a Car they do not have any hidden costs. These are the numbers you will actually pay without any surprise last-minute price additions. Another important thing to have in mind is that they require a damage/security deposit of 150,000 AMD for all of their cars (in case of full insurance – 100.000 AMD). But the whole amount will be refunded back to you if you don’t damage the car.
Enterprise Rent-A-Car – international yet cheap
Enterprise is one of the most famous car rental service providers in the world and yes, they also have a branch in Yerevan. Their main address is on 5/1 Northern Avenue which is in a very central area of the city. They have really good cheap car options, that’s why I think they’re worth your attention.
Also, being represented in several countries of the region, they offer the “One Way Rental” service which gives you an opportunity to visit Georgia during your time in Armenia, for example. Isn’t it cool?. Following this link, you can make a reservation and find great deals. And here you can see the list of all the available cars.
The prices listed are only for automatic transmission cars and as you might have guessed the manual options are a bit cheaper. Side note, don’t refuse to take on extra insurance when they offer it to you for a bit of extra cost. Armenian roads can be tricky sometimes, and I think having the car insured can spare you a lot of potential trouble.
Car rental rates
|Fleet||Price per day (in USD)|
|Ford Fiesta or similar||73|
|Mitsubishi Lancer or similar||74|
|Ford Focus or similar||76|
|Hyundai Elantra or similar||76|
|Opel Mokka or similar||114|
|Renault Duster or similar||117|
|Hyundai Tucson or similar||118|
|Toyota Camry or similar||118|
|Honda Pilot or similar||235|
