Top tips for renting a car in Mongolia

  • Mongolia car rentals make exploring this East Asian nation easier, as they provide flexibility and convenience. You can visit different parts of the country that have limited public transport access. Renting a car in the country allows you to drive at your own pace and stop at popular attractions. Start your journey in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar and explore the city’s vibrant attractions before taking a memorable journey to the Gobi Desert, one of the world's most interesting and diverse desert ecosystems.
  • Road conditions in Mongolia vary depending on the region. Most city roads are paved, while rural areas and most locations outside the major cities have gravel and dirt roads. You’ll find many roads with potholes, so drive cautiously, especially outside the city. Driving outside Ulaanbaatar at night can be challenging because most roads lack streetlights and are not in the best state.
  • Navigating Mongolia can be challenging, especially in remote areas with unclear road signs. Consider an additional GPS or online and offline maps. You can also have a paper map as a backup if the other options become less effective. Confirm whether your car has a functional navigation system in your preferred language when renting. You may also consider renting a car with a driver if you’re not mentally prepared to drive yourself.
  • The type of car to rent in Mongolia depends on your travel plan and budget. A four-wheel drive is the best if you plan to do a lot of off-road driving or drive outside Ulaanbaatar and other major towns. If you plan to drive within Ulaanbaatar or along paved roads outside the city, you can opt for a smaller car. Car rentals in Mongolia come in an array of vehicles that match your needs.

Most Mongolian roads are toll-free, except for a few paved roads (all paved motorways from Ulaanbaatar to Sukhe-Bator). You’ll encounter several police stops. Make sure you have your International Driving Permit (IDP). Make sure your car insurance and vehicle registration are updated when renting to avoid trouble with the authorities. Drivers in Mongolia are considerate but can be unpredictable, so you should always stay alert on the road, especially when driving in major cities and towns.

Young drivers under 23 will incur a surcharge. You must provide a valid license from your country, identification documents (passport or national ID), and a valid credit card in your name for payment. An IDP is also essential since English is not the official language in Mongolia.
