Car hire driving information Kenya

Driving Overview

General Information
Kenya is an exotic country that offers both exciting safari parks and beautiful beaches. Car hire in Kenya is a great way of exploring this divers African country. If you plan to drive outside of the bigger roads and to the national parks we highly recommend a rental car with four wheel drive. 

To rent a car, you must be at least 23 years old and maximum 70 years old (age can vary by car category) and have held your driver's license for at least 2 years. One tip: ask the local supplier for 2 spare wheels in case you plan on driving in rural areas.

Speed Limits
Speed limits in Kenya are:

  • Town and city: 50 km/h
  • Motorways: 110 km/h

Traffic restrictions
In Kenya you drive on the left side of the road. Always remember to take it extremely easy and avoid driving in the city centre. The local drivers are infamous for their reckless way of driving. Avoid driving during the night. Wild animals might block the road.

There are many petrol stations around the cities. Fill up your tank before traveling to more rural areas. Sometimes you can drive for about 200 km without any petrol station in sight! 

There are no road tolls in Kenya.

We recommend parking your rental car in a secure parking area. Never leave any valuable items in your car. 

Insurance Information

General Information
Car rental insurance varies widely, so please study the information below prior to making your booking. Regulations of the country where you rent the car will be in effect for the duration of your rental.

All our car hire rates include Collision Damage coverage and Theft Protection for the vehicle. Rental limits potential vehicle damage or loss liability to an excess, which is stated on your voucher. If you plan to take advantage of coverage offered by your credit card, please contact your card issuer directly for details. Specific insurance information for your reservation will be printed on your confirmation voucher.

Rental Restrictions

General Information
With a rental car in Kenya you may also drive it abroad. Special regulations apply and you will have to pay additional fees. Always let us know at booking if you plan on crossing any national borders with your rental car. Please note that you may not take your car on any ferry.
Domestic and international one-way rentals are not allowed.
