KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Manama

  • Car rentals in Manama offer numerous advantages over taxis as well as the city’s public transport system. Most importantly, Manama car rentals provide convenience and flexibility, allowing you to explore the city at your own pace. With a rental car, you can easily visit popular attractions like the Bahrain National Museum, which showcases the country's rich history and culture, and the Bahrain World Trade Center, an architectural marvel. Having a car also enables you to venture outside the city to attractions like the mesmerizing Tree of Life or the historic Qal'at al-Bahrain fort.
  • Among several pickup locations for car rentals in Manama, Bahrain Intl Airport (BAH) stands as one of the best among drivers. Car rentals at BAH are conveniently located in the arrivals halls of both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. In Terminal 1, the car rental center is situated on the ground floor, adjacent to the baggage claim area. In Terminal 2, you can find the car rental center on level 1, near the arrival gates. These easily accessible locations ensure a seamless transition from your flight to the rental car counter, allowing you to begin your journey in Manama without any delays.
  • When driving in Manama, it's important to keep a few things in mind. Watch out for jaywalkers, as pedestrian crossings may not always be respected. Be cautious of bikers who often weave through traffic. Drivers in the city can display aggressive and fast-paced driving styles, so maintaining alertness is crucial. While traffic laws exist, not all drivers strictly adhere to them. Stay vigilant, use defensive driving techniques, and be prepared for unexpected maneuvers. Familiarize yourself with local driving customs to ensure a safe and smooth driving experience in Manama.
  • Driving car rentals in Manama can be challenging, particularly during rush hours. The morning rush hour typically occurs between 7 am and 9 am, while the evening rush hour spans from 4 pm to 7 pm. Roads such as Sheikh Khalifa Bin Salman Highway (Highway 40), King Faisal Highway, and Shaikh Isa Bin Salman Highway (Highway 77) are often heavily congested during these times. Navigating through the traffic can be time-consuming, requiring patience and careful planning. It is advisable to consider alternative routes or adjust your schedule accordingly to avoid peak traffic periods.

Pros:

I somehow made the reservation for a location in the city and not the airport, but they were able to transfer my reservation to the airport location with no trouble at all for the same price. Nice person helping us!

Cons:

The car was a little bit scratched up and the steering had a hard pull to the right but nothing serious enough to return it early.
