KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Kathmandu

  • Car rentals in Kathmandu will give you more flexible and convenient transport options. Among the sights you may see while in Kathmandu with a rental car is Amideva Buddha Park. Despite the city's efficient public transportation system, which is far less expensive, hiring a car gives you all the flexibility you could ever want. In contrast to public transportation, which follows set departure times and routes, renting a car allows you to choose your own journey time and the best routes to take to get where you're going.
  • Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM) is one of the greatest places to pick up car rentals in Kathmandu. Major Kathmandu car rental companies such as Europcar, Hertz, and Enterprise have their rental counters housed in the car rental facility located adjacent to the baggage claim area. You can avoid the annoyance of longer lines at the numerous airport shuttle and bus stops if you are arriving at the airport and want to connect to Kathmandu city center or any other destination. Renters at KTM are more likely to acquire their specific car model than at other car rental places. This is due to the fact that compared to other car rental locations, this airport location offers the greatest fleets of vehicles from Kathmandu car rental providers.
  • When driving in Kathmandu, keep in mind that it's usual for motorists to disregard several fundamental traffic laws, particularly those governing the right of way and lane discipline. Drivers frequently enter junctions without regard for the potential obstruction they may cause, especially those operating huge trucks. It is usual for cars to switch lanes without signaling on highways with several lanes. Therefore, be cautious of other drivers while you drive your rental car through the city, and don't assume they'll obey the rules of the road.
  • Although the use of car rentals in Kathmandu is typically a fun experience, there are a few challenges you'll run across. During the morning and evening rush hours, which are often from 6:30 am to 9:30 am and later from 4:30 pm to 7 pm, you may find it challenging to drive in the city. Most of Kathmandu's roadways endure considerable traffic during these periods, with New Road being the worst affected.
