Where can I pick up a hireal car in Kenya?

You will probably travel to Kenya by plane. Then it makes sense to pick up the hireal car directly at the airport. Book your dream car from the comfort of your own home and pick it up right after your arrival at Mombasa Airport or at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Alternatively, you can pick up your hireal car in the city centre of Mombasa or Nairobi.

This should be noted:

If you are travelling through Kenya, you should take out fully comprehensive insurance without excess. In this way, even in the event of damage, you will have no further costs and you can enjoy your holiday stress-free.

With the right insurance through Kenia

Even if you drive very carefully and safely, damage may occur to the hireal car. To ensure that you can continue your journey without stress, we recommend that you take out fully comprehensive insurance without excess. In the event of damage, you will have to advance the costs. However, you will be reimbursed by your insurance company after your arrival back home. Simply submit the relevant receipts when you return from Kenya.

One-way hireal

For those who want to do a road trip to Kenya with a hireal car, the one-way hireal might be the best option. This means that you can pick up your hireal car at the location of your choice and return it conveniently to another location. This is particularly useful if you are heading for  Nairobi, Mombasa, Nakuru and Kisumu.

Additional driver

What does the additional driver option actually mean? If you specify another person as an additional driver when booking, you can take turns driving the hireal car. Distances in Kenia are often very long. If only one person drives the hireal car, this can be quite exhausting. So that the driver can sit back and relax, too, you can simply hand over the steering wheel to the additional driver.

Safe journey with the SUV

Do you travel to Kenya with friends or family and have a lot of baggage? Then it's best to hire a minivan. In this minivan, you should have no space problems. If you want to drive a lot through the terrain, you can hire an SUV. In this way, you will never get stuck. If, on the other hand, you need a hireal car for the city, we recommend a small car. It is manoeuvrable and fits into even the smallest parking space. As you can see, everyone will find what they are looking for on With the price comparison service, you will find the best fitting offer for your stay in Kenia. If you want to adapt the car even more to your wishes, you can also select the options all-wheel drive, air conditioning or automatic.
