KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Kuwait City

  • Booking car rental in Kuwait City is a great option for all travellers wanting to explore the State of Kuwait and its capital. Situated in Kuwait Bay, the metropolis has many culturally significant landmarks that give an impression of its rich history as a prosperous trading hub on the Persian Gulf. If you want to get out into nature, the Subbiya Desert and Sabah Al-Ahmad Natural Reserve are only around a 50min drive from Kuwait City.
  • You can find a variety of international rental car providers at Kuwait International Airport (KWI), such as Sixt, Budget, Europcar, Hertz and Avis. These trusted car hire agents offer a wide range of vehicles at affordable prices. The customer service desks are located in the main arrivals hall at Terminals 1 and 4. Rental vehicles are situated in car parks outside both buildings. If you prefer to collect your vehicle in Kuwait City itself, you can also find car rental in Kuwait City at Al Ta'awun Street, but these may be more expensive than at the airport.
  • There are a number of road rules you must keep in mind when driving your rental car in Kuwait City. When approaching a roundabout, cars must not only give way but come to a complete stop. Signposts are generally written both in English and Arabic, though smaller streets may be indicated by number rather than name, so choosing car rental in Kuwait City that provides GPS is a good idea to help you navigate.

Hello Kayak, the number of reservations of the type of car Tahoe upon receipt of the car reported that the type of car is different from the one existing in the company system and asked me to pay extra 50 Kuwaiti dinars so that I can receive the same car that I booked through the site Kayak and I paid the amount and took the car by 50 dinars Kuwaiti so I demand the company to refund the amount. With great respect

Pros:

The staff were friendly but due to system the couldn't help

Cons:

When I booked I booked for Chevrolet Tahoe or equivalent but unfortunately when I reached to the desk they told me I booked Chevrolet Traiblazer which is much smaller for my family than Taho. I had to pay more than double what I already paid to upgrade to Yukon as Tahoe wasn't available.

There was no counter in Terminal 2. There is NO shuttle to terminal 1, only taxi options. I used a different rental car and now Holiday Autos will not give me a refund. Their web site showed Sixt in Terminal 2 and this is why I booked it. Can you help me to get a refund? Thank you, Eric Miller
