Travellers looking for cheap car hire in Lagos will find plenty of options available to them. Traffic congestion in Lagos city centre can be intense and you may want to choose a compact car, so you can squeeze into small parking spaces or merge in easily with other vehicles. An economy car hire for city driving can also be a good option to help you save on fuel. An economy vehicle can be great if you want to drive farther out, along the Lagos coast or explore more rural areas. Although roads outside of the city are generally quite well maintained, an SUV might be a good choice if you want a bit more storage space and a sturdy vehicle for longer drives.
Looking for places to park a hire car in Lagos? You will find plenty of places in the city centre and in the Lekki area. Car parks in Lagos range from outdoor to multi-story to undercover.
