Top tips for hiring a car at Blantyre Chileka airport

  • If Blantyre is on your bucket list for a safari, or your business itinerary, you will probably land at Chileka International Airport (BLZ) to start your trip. Regardless of your final destination, we think car hire at Blantyre Chileka Airport is the best way to get everything done on your to-do list and enjoy seeing the area at the same time. Head over to the search engine on KAYAK to find your perfect match take advantage of the great offers early booking gives you.
  • Close to the S137, S138 main roads, renting a car from Blantyre Chileka Airport car hire gives you fast and easy access to Blantyre via the M3, as well as other parts of the country by taking the M1 or M3 roads. While Malawi generally has fairly good infrastructure and roads, we recommend you rent a 4x4, off-road or larger SUV type vehicle if you are going on a self-drive safari, or plan on exploring the area outside Blantyre. It provides extra security, safety and comfort. It's a good idea to always add tyre and windscreen insurance, but if you rent an off-road vehicle, you definitely need it.
  • Although Chileka Airport is international, it is small, which means that car hire at Blantyre Chileka Airport means you won't have to wait in long queues or get stuck in traffic on the way out. Of course, we can't account for African time, which is part of the continent's culture, or the occasional cows on the road, but that is all part of the adventure. Any time is a good time to arrive and pick-up your rental vehicle, even during peak seasons. The airport and the rental agencies are both open 24h, so you don't have to worry about an out-of-hours drop-off or collection fee.
  • When renting from car hire at Blantyre Chileka Airport, you need to add additional insurance cover, as there is no insurance included in the rental price. If you have personal, or private insurance that includes Malawi, you need to bring a letter with confirmation of coverage. For ease of use and a hassle-free experience, our suggestion is to add premium insurance coverage, when you make your booking on KAYAK, as this will cover you for any eventuality, including personal accident cover, or theft of personal belongings.

FAQs about renting a car at Blantyre Chileka airport

  • I prefer driving, or I need to drive an automatic vehicle. Are they available?

    The agencies at the airport all have automatic vehicles, in all the classes. There are not as many available, compared to the manual ones, so we advise you book well in advance. You can also add your requirements as a note when you make your booking.

  • I'm travelling with children, what extras can I book?

    You can choose a lot of extras that will make travelling with children stress-free, not to mention, accommodating all the extra luggage. For a low daily fee you can add infant/baby seats, toddler seats, or even booster seats as well. Always make sure the seats have been fitted correctly before you leave the car rental premises.

  • Where are the car hire facilities located in Blantyre's Chileka International Airport?

    The airport has one main terminal building, and you will find the car hire offices on the ground floor, next to the Arrivals. You can't miss them, so don't worry about getting lost. If you hired a car from a company in Blantyre, the Meet and Greet service, or the shuttle driver will meet you in the Arrivals lobby, or just outside the main doors to the airport.

  • Do car hire services here provide special services?

    One of the providers, Avis, has some great options available if you want the flexibility of a car, but not the responsibility of a rental car. You can book a fully chauffeured drive, or a point to point drive that allows you to sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery.

  • Which car rental companies will pick you up at Blantyre Chileka airport?

    The only car rental company that offers shuttle or pick-up services from Blantyre Chileka airport to off-airport locations is Avis.
