Car hire FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car hires in Mombasa, Kenya, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on 22 July 2024.
  • What are the requirements to hire a car in Mombasa?

    The only legal requirement for car hire in Mombasa is your valid UK driving licence. This will allow you to drive in Kenya for up to three months at a time. If you’re staying longer, you’ll need an International Driving Permit. You will also need to be between the ages of 23 and 60; although, some companies may require you to be 25 to get passenger van hire or luxury car hire in Mombasa. In all cases, you’ll have to have held your licence for at least two years to qualify for Mombasa car hire.

  • What are the rules for driving in Mombasa?

    You’ll drive on the same side of the road as in the UK with car hire in Mombasa – on the left. All passengers must wear seatbelts, and you must also carry the insurance documents for the car with you. The blood alcohol limit is 0.08mg/100ml. The speed limit in any town or city in Kenya is 50 km/h (about 30 mph) and 110 km/h (about 68 mph) outside of them. Although it’s not mandatory, it’s always a good idea to get child seats for kids when you hire cars in Mombasa. You can book them as an extra and collect with your vehicle at most of the car hire locations in Mombasa.

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

    When considering which type of car hire in Mombasa to choose, there are a couple of factors to take into account. The inner city is densely populated, and the road surface quality can vary from district to district. Your best bet for Mombasa car hire is something like an SUV, which will have the suspension and ride height to deal with subpar roads and also won’t be unwieldy in traffic. If you’re travelling between towns in the hinterland, perhaps in a group or as a family, an MPV will be a good choice. For economy car hire, you can get something like a compact city car, which also has the benefit of being a good option for cheap car hire in Mombasa.
