Important information about Nairobi car hire

In general, travelers in this part of the world who would like to take their car rentals from Nairobi across the border to Tanzania and Uganda are free to do so; however, there is generally a fee charged by the rental car company to drive your rental car out of the country. You will also need to purchase cross-border insurance from the rental car company; the price for this insurance will vary based on the type of vehicle, the number of days you will have the car across the border, and the number of people that are travelling with you from the car rental location in Nairobi.

While there is a chance that some local companies will let you obtain hired cars in Nairobi without a credit card, for the most part, most rental car companies are going to require a credit card. You may be given the option of using a debit card to pay for a car rental at the end of your rental period, but rental car companies are still going to require a credit card as security for your rental while you have the car. It is very important to note that if you choose an alternative form of payment for a cheap car rental in Nairobi, you will be required to pay a hefty deposit as security for the car during the term of your rental.

While the standard rule of driving hired cars in Nairobi is to drive on the left side of the road, you will often see drivers in this area driving on the other side of the road if they are trying to avoid a pothole or an animal in the middle of the road. You will come across a variety of road conditions in this part of the world in your electric car rental, ranging from smooth highways around Nairobi to unpaved dirt roads, which can be difficult for drivers in vehicles that are not equipped to handle these kinds of conditions. Drivers may often encounter unmarked speed bumps when driving in their luxury hired cars in Nairobi, so be mindful of that when on the road, and avoid speeding. We also recommend that you carry water, emergency food, a fully charged phone, and extra fuel in your people carrier rental, just in case your vehicle breaks down in an area that is not well inhabited. If you are stopped by police while driving in Nairobi, it is important to remain calm and patient; also make sure to ask for an official receipt from the police for your records.

To get a cheap car rental in Nairobi, you will need to have a driving license from your country of origin. Keep in mind that drivers need to have been licensed for at least three years in order to rent a car in this area. Most rental car companies will also expect you to present a passport to them to confirm your identity when renting a car. The minimum age to rent a car here can vary from 21 years old to 25 years old, depending on the rental car company. Make sure to check the rental terms for your preferred car rental company in Nairobi to confirm all the necessary documentation.
