Top tips for hiring a car at Jomo Kenyatta Airport, Nairobi

  • Getting around Nairobi will be made much easier by organising a car hire at Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta Airport. The local transport systems can be very limiting and confusing, and will reduce your opportunities to explore the area to the set schedules and routes, cutting out some areas for your exploration opportunities. To have full creative freedom on your travel itinerary, book a car hire at Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta Airport and give yourself the keys to both a rental car and a flexible, memorable adventure in Kenya.
  • Kenya does not require UK citizens to have an International Driving Permit, and you are able to drive on a valid UK driver’s license for up to 90 days. Double check that this is not a requirement with your Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta Airport car hire company though, as documentation requirements can vary. If you are staying in Kenya longer than 90 days, be aware that you may be fined for using a UK license past this timeframe without a permit or transferred license.
  • There is a designated returns area for each company offering car hire at Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta Airport, and full details on the location to return your rental car and the process will be given to you on collection of your rental. Remember to fill up the tank before bringing the rental car back, and that you return on time to avoid any fees for an additional day of rental.
  • The weekends are quiet at Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta Airport, with most travellers coming and going through the week and the airport not being open 24h, and closed on Sundays. You will find that transit through Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta at any time is generally easy and efficient, and though there may be other travellers collecting car hires at Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta Airport you shouldn’t come across much delay as there are multiple services available.

FAQs about renting a car at Jomo Kenyatta Airport, Nairobi

  • What documentation will be required for me to rent a car from Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta Airport?

    Though it may vary between companies offering car hire at Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta Airport, the minimum age to rent a car in Kenya is generally 23. You will need to provide your full and valid driver’s license, and some companies offering Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta Airport car hires will require that you have held your license for at least two years. You will also need to provide a secondary identification such as your passport, along with a major credit card.

  • Where are the car rental offices at Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta Airport?

    The airport is shaped around a central parking and business area, where the main car rental offices are located.

There were no signs after exiting the airport for the rental car office and it was very difficult to find the phone number for Hertz Nairobi JKAI. Eventually we found it then they wanted to put an $800+ deposit on hold on our card (never mentioned on the terms and conditions), as well as, the $400+ for the actual rental car. I made sure to take lots of pictures and wrote on all the documents we signed that it was a deposit and we would get it back period. After we finally got the car, everything went smoothly but the check in and that “deposit” was ridiculous.

Pros:

Drop off was easy, they came to pick it up.

Cons:

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.

They were very late meeting me to pick up the car and they gave me a gigantic truck so they had to drive me to their HQ to get the correct car. Awful experience.

Alert- the office is closed. Others nearby said it has been closed during COVID. There were numbers posted in the window to call, but we received no reply. I'm so glad we didn't pre-pay! You may want to investigate and remove them from your website. Fortunately, we got a friendly and honest JKIA driver to take us to where we needed to go for a reasonable fee.
