You must be careful when driving in Nigeria as it can be hazardous. In general, road safety laws don’t tend to be followed as closely as in other countries, so you will need to be cautious of other drivers. Examples of daily occurrences are people driving against the traffic and speeding in high-traffic areas. There are also few pedestrian crossings, so you will often find people crossing busy roads at will. It’s therefore important to remain vigilant.
Everyone needs to be a minimum of 21 years of age to rent a car in Nigeria. You should not have any major incidents on your driving record. Anyone under the age of 25 years will also need to pay a young driver surcharge. Younger drivers will also be restricted on the categories of vehicle they can rent.
A gallon of gas costs around 725 NGN (1.60 USD) in Nigeria, while a liter costs about 191 NGN (0.40 USD). The currency in Nigeria is the naira, which is valued at around 444 NGN to the U.S. dollar. It’s important to remember that the majority of gas stations in the country are close to the major cities. So if you’re driving through the countryside, you should ensure you have enough gas for the journey.
The speed limits in Nigeria are in kilometers, not miles. In well-populated areas, the top speed limit is 40 km/h (25 mph). On rural roads, you can go as fast as 80 km/h (50 mph). On highways, the maximum speed is 120 km/h (75 mph). Both fixed and mobile speed cameras exist in Nigeria. If you get a speeding ticket, your agency will charge you automatically and will be obliged to pass your information over to the travel authorities.
