KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Kuwait City

  • Getting a car rental in Kuwait City provides several advantages over relying on public transportation. With a rental car, you can enjoy flexible schedules and routes, enhancing your ability to explore the city freely. A rental car will allow you to customize your itinerary according to your preferences, including visiting the city's popular attractions, such as Kuwait Towers, Al Shaheed Park, Tareq Rajab Museum of Islamic Calligraphy, and Bait Al Othman Museum. With a rental car, you can easily navigate through Kuwait City, avoiding crowded buses or trains and the associated potential delays. A rental car will also allow you to ride in air-conditioned comfort, ensuring a more pleasant trip as compared to buses or trains.
  • Kuwait International Airport (KWI) is the primary airport serving Kuwait City and its metropolis. If you're flying to Kuwait City on a vacation or a business trip, you'll land at KWI; hence, consider familiarizing yourself with the availability of car rentals at the airport. The airport features Kuwait City car rentals, which provide accessible and efficient services to travelers arriving at KWI. Located in the arrivals area, the car rental desks are easily accessible and clearly marked, ensuring a smooth transition from the airport to the rental process.
  • If you're driving a vehicle from a car rental in Kuwait City, you should adhere to the traffic rules to ensure a safe trip and avoid legal problems. The minimum age to drive in Kuwait City is 21 years old. You should always drive on the right side of the road unless overtaking. All passengers are required to wear seat belts, regardless of their seating position. You should strictly adhere to the posted speed limits. In addition, it is illegal to use mobile phones while driving unless it is through a hands-free system. You should note that driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is prohibited and can result in severe penalties.
  • Before obtaining a ride from car rentals in Kuwait City, get to know the city's rush hour periods and experiences. The city's rush hour times occur between 7:00 am and 9:00 am in the morning and 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm in the afternoon. During these hours, the roadways of Kuwait City become congested with a steady flow of vehicles, resulting in sluggish movement and long queues at major intersections. During rush hour periods, the city's key thoroughfares are generally crowded with vehicles, buses, and taxis transporting commuters to and from work stations and schools. However, you can avoid the rush hour traffic congestion by opting for the Fourth Ring Road, an alternative route that can help you bypass the city's busiest areas during rush hour.

Hello Kayak, the number of reservations of the type of car Tahoe upon receipt of the car reported that the type of car is different from the one existing in the company system and asked me to pay extra 50 Kuwaiti dinars so that I can receive the same car that I booked through the site Kayak and I paid the amount and took the car by 50 dinars Kuwaiti so I demand the company to refund the amount. With great respect

When I booked I booked for Chevrolet Tahoe or equivalent but unfortunately when I reached to the desk they told me I booked Chevrolet Traiblazer which is much smaller for my family than Taho. I had to pay more than double what I already paid to upgrade to Yukon as Tahoe wasn't available.

There was no counter in Terminal 2. There is NO shuttle to terminal 1, only taxi options. I used a different rental car and now Holiday Autos will not give me a refund. Their web site showed Sixt in Terminal 2 and this is why I booked it. Can you help me to get a refund? Thank you, Eric Miller
