KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Lagos

  • Lagos, Nigeria, is a huge city, and there's no better way to explore it than with a car rental in Lagos. Lagos does have public transportation options, but it can take a while to get to your destination when using them as they rely on preset schedules. Additionally, they tend to get quite crowded. Lagos car rentals offer a way of moving around with much-needed flexibility. You can easily explore top destinations like Ida Idungaran and Jaekel House with a rental car.
  • You will land at Lagos Murtala Muhammed International Airport (LOS) when flying to Lagos. Avis, Sixt, and Hertz Car are some rental agencies offering on-site services at LOS. Rentals desks at the airport are in Arrivals E and D in the International Terminal. You can also find car rental counters outside the Domestic Terminal Arrivals section. Sixt also offers pick-up services from the airport to their off-airport locations.
  • Here are a few pointers you should consider before getting behind the wheel of any rental car in Lagos.

Roads in Lagos experience different levels of congestion during these hours.

Ridiculous. Canceled my reservation without notifying me. Called and left a call back number for a rebooking, never called me back for entire duration of my trip. Unprofessional and undeserving of customers’ trust.
