KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Manama

  • Manama is the economic, political and cultural nerve centre of Bahrain, and the local government has invested in improving its road network as the population increased. For a visitor with a car rental in Manama, this means you have the convenience to travel where you want and a highway system to go as far as you want, without dependency on public transport. Busaiteen Seafront sits above Manama Reef 10 km from the city centre and is one of the best spots for swimming and diving. Bahrain Fort and its museum are also approx. 10 km from Central Manama heading west on King Faisal Highway.
  • Bahrain International Airport, about 7 km from the city centre,  has a car rental centre so you can get started immediately upon arrival. It’s on the Ground Floor of the Arrivals Hall, near Gates 1 & 2 and offers several major car hire providers, including Budget, Hertz and SIXT and local company Allied Car Rental. With advanced reservations, you can collect a small economy car, mid-sized saloon or sporty SUV and be on your way with minimal wait. By law, you must be over 21 years old to rent a car in Bahrain, and most providers will add charges on drivers under 25.
  • Hands-free devices are legal in Manama, so connect yours and perform a passenger seat belt check before you set off. There is a zero-tolerance policy for alcohol in Bahrain with harsh penalties if police catch you driving a rental car in Manama under the influence of substances. So act responsibly behind the wheel and watch out for high volumes of motorcycle and bicycle traffic and darting pedestrians as you go.
  • Manama is notorious for its intense traffic congestion, so add some extra time to your travel schedule as a precautionary measure. Expect high volumes of inbound & outbound traffic on King Faisal Highway running west-north weekday mornings from 7–9 a.m. and again from 6-9 p.m. In addition, the area around Andalus Gardens is a commercial zone, so you should anticipate excessive foot, bike and car traffic during the peak summer months. The Port of Mina Salman is another area to avoid on weekday afternoons from 1-3 p.m.
  • Book your car hire in Manama at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact hire cars in Manama are around 61% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car do you recommend for driving in Manama?

    Manama is the cosmopolitan capital of an affluent country, where rentals like a sleek luxury car or deluxe SUV fit right in with local rides. For those with restrictive budgets, a smart-looking compact or late-model economy car offers economy and manoeuvrability in tight situations. On the other hand, if you’re on a company business trip with work colleagues or taking the family on holiday, we recommend a premium people carrier for maximum seating capacity with ample luggage space.

  • What's the speed limit in Manama?

    Within Manama city limits, you should drive below 60 kph, and on roads in less populated areas, you can accelerate up to 100 kph. On highways leading to and from Manama, such as the A80 or Prince Khalifa Bin Salman Causeway, the maximum speed limit is 120 kph. There are many pedestrians in the central area and CCTV cameras about the city, so drive safely at all times.

  • Where are the best places to park in Manama?

    Parking a rental car in Manama is challenging on the best of days due to the high number of vehicles, but finding a good spot is not impossible. There are Pay and Display parking meters on many city streets, plus municipal and private, secure car parks where you can leave your vehicle for extended periods at attractive rates. If your accommodation doesn’t provide in-house parking facilities, you should know that public parking is free from as early as 7 p.m. in some places until 7 a.m. daily.

Pros:

I somehow made the reservation for a location in the city and not the airport, but they were able to transfer my reservation to the airport location with no trouble at all for the same price. Nice person helping us!

Cons:

The car was a little bit scratched up and the steering had a hard pull to the right but nothing serious enough to return it early.
