A car rental from NBO is the most convenient way to transit from the airport. Renting a car at NBO will save you the hassle of dealing with the delays and unreliable schedule of public transportation in Nairobi. Moreover, public transportation to various destinations out of the city is inadequate. Your rental car will offer you the freedom to explore hidden trails and remote destinations that are inaccessible via public transportation. Also, a car rental is a cost-effective means to tour the Safari parks around NBO compared to the tour agencies in the city.
Most car rental providers at NBO have capped their minimum age requirement at 25. Nevertheless, drivers between 21 and 24 can also book a car rental at Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta International Airport but will face extra charges and restrictions. Also, you must present a valid driver’s license, which you must have held for at least two years, and a passport or national I.D. Foreign nationals must also present their government-issued driver’s license with an official translation or an International Driver’s Permit to rent a car at NBO.
Car rental providers at NBO mainly accept credit cards payments as the primary mode of payment. Credit cards guarantee them security in case of fines or additional charges. Typically, major credit card providers such as Visa, MasterCard, and Discover are allowed. The credit card must bear the renter’s name. However, some rental agencies accept debit card payments, but additional restrictions, requirements, and costs will apply. Contact your rental provider in advance to inquire about their payment policy.
Car rental companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from Jomo Kenyatta Airport, Nairobi to off-airport locations include Avis, and Sixt.
8.0 Very good
Pros:Drop off was easy, they came to pick it up.
Cons:Prices are way to high from other experiences in other countries and locations.
Pros:Great staff. Car was ready
Cons:Smelled like smoke. $60/ day (including VAT) for a definitively used car seems expensive. South Africa rates are more in line with value for money.
