|Bahrain Airport Car Rental;
CAR RENTAL desks are located in the main arrivals hall at the Airport, these include some of the worlds major car rental agencies. The Car Rental agencies available at the Bahrain International
Airport arrivals hall include the following:
Europcar, Budget Rent-a-car, Avis, Hertz, Oscar Car Hire, Elite Car Rentals, Continental Car Hire, Gulf Car Hire, National Car, Thrifty Car and Easy Car Rental.
Through this site you can cheaply Rent a car throughout Bahrain including Manama and Isa Town. If you are hiring a rental car for the Grand Prix then book your car early as, even though the car
rental companies do get extra cars for the Grand Prix, they still tend to run out of available rental cars at this time due to the high demand.
Driving licence requirements for Renting a car in Bahrain;
To Rent a Car in Bahrain you will need an International Driving Licence, or a driving license from any Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) country, a UK or EC driving licence. Your license will have to
be endorsed by the General Directorate of Traffic, which most Car Hire and Car Rental companies can do on the spot. Car Rental firms can accept UK and EC driving licences for up to a one month
period. The rules do change so it is recommended that the specific requirements are checked with your Car Rental company in Bahrain on arrival.
General driving information;
Driving in Bahrain is relatively safe and orderly when compared to some other Gulf and Middle Eastern countries. The roads are not as crowded as some neighbouring countries,though they are getting
busier, and they are generally well maintained. Finding your way around is easy, the road sign's are in both English and Arabic and the directions are clear.
The driving is on the right, as in Europe, but if you are Renting a car and have not driven in the middle east before, then I would suggest that you take a little extra care as some of the driving habits in
could be different from those that you are used to, expect the unexpected.
Drinking and driving is prohibited. Strict laws are implemented on the island to minimize road accidents. The penalty for drink driving is imprisonment and fines of up to Bd500. A seat belt should
always be used by the driver and passenger in the front seat. Otherwise, a fine of about Bd20 maybe imposed.
The top national speed limit in Bahrain is 120 kph, it is less on minor roads and the speed limits are generally well signposted with Road signs placed on both sides of the road. Speed cameras are also
installed in various places and they also have mobile speed guns. A lot of traffic signals have cameras to catch those not obeying the signals so make sure that you stay within the law at all times.
If you have an accident then so long as it is a small accident with no injuries, you are allowed to move your car, however, if there are any injuries you are advised not to move the car and wait for the
traffic police to arrive. The police have an accident hot line 1768-8888 or 1768-5999, once
informed and if no injuries then they will ask both drivers to go to a specified police station to report the accident. The easiest one to find in Manama is next to the Exhibition center in Seef. An
accident report must be filed in order to claim from the Hire Car companies insurance agents and most Car Rental companies will advise you not to admit liability. Garages will not repair a vehicle
police report so make sure you get one for the Car Rental company.
Useful numbers in an emergency are:
1768-8888 or 1768-5999
Petrol in Bahrain is very reasonable at 100 fils and 80 fils per liter for the two types of petrol that are available, Mumtaz and Jayid ( a literal translation being Very good and good) with plenty of
petrol stations well signposted. Your Car Hire company will advise you as to which you should use.
If you are looking to buy a car in Bahrain you will also find that new cars are cheaper than in Europe.
