Rental cars outside Muharraq airport


Practically everybody drives in Bahrain.

This is the form of transportation Bahrain is the most equipped for. Several car rental companies - from small to the larges international firms - are at present in Bahrain and the all offering very good services.

The charges are very from company to company. Unlimited mileage and insurance is generally included.

As a rough guide, the rental for one day is between BD 12 and BD 50 - depending on the car make and model. Renting a car for a week is somewhere between BD 60 and BD 280. Naturally if you rent for a month, the deal will be even better. Currency converter
