Car hire FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car hires in Enugu, Nigeria, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on 17 July 2024.
  • What are the requirements to hire a car in Enugu?

    To enjoy car hire in Enugu, drivers must have a valid UK driving licence. You will also need to have an international driver’s permit for your Enugu car hire. Remember to keep this permit and your UK licence in the car with you when you are out and about. Age requirements may vary depending on the company you choose, and many car hire agencies require drivers to be at least 21 years old. However, for luxury car hire in Enugu or for hiring large vehicles, like passenger van hire, you may have to be at least 25 years old.

  • What are the rules for driving in Enugu?

    If you opt for car hire in Enugu, you can expect to drive on the left-hand side of the road. Drivers should also be aware that Nigerian road signs show speed limits in kilometres rather than miles. The maximum speed limit for cars and privately hired vans in built-up areas is 50 km/h (31 mph). Meanwhile, the speed limits go up to 80 km/h (50 mph) for single-carriage highways and 100 km/h (62 mph) for motorways and expressways. Nigeria also has strict rules about seatbelt use. Those who hire cars in Enugu must ensure that all passengers wear their seat belts and that their car hire booking includes the correct restraints for children younger than age seven. It is best to check with Enugu motor vehicle authorities for recent law changes.

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Enugu?

    Enugu is a bustling city that also has some nice rural scenery and country roads to the west of the town. If you are looking for cheap car hire in Enugu and want to stay mainly in the town centre, a compact car might be a good option for you. Compact, economy car hire in Enugu will allow you to navigate narrow streets in the city centre and easily blend in with heavy traffic. If you plan to explore the hills or nearby rural areas, you could opt for an SUV or estate model for your car hire in Enugu. Some car hire branches also offer unique options, such as electric car hire or minibuses.

  • What are the best places to park in Enugu?

    When you opt for cheap car hire in Enugu, you will likely want to find cheap and convenient parking options available in the city. While there are plenty of car parks in Enugu, they can be extremely crowded in the centre. Most multi-storey car parks also charge a small fee for using the facilities, though this often comes to less than ₦5.50 (£1) in total for short stays. Many hotels and central accommodation options also provide free on-site parking. If you want to avoid the crowds with your Enugu car hire, however, it may be a good idea to park slightly outside of the centre and then use public transport to explore busier areas.

  • Can I rent a car for a month in Enugu?

    Typically, how long you can hire a car for depends on the inventory of the supplier. For Enugu however, it is certainly possible to rent a car for an entire month.
