What's the age requirement to rent a car in Bahrain?

Generally, the age limit for car rentals in Bahrain is 21—the same as it is across most of the country. If you are under 25, you might also need to pay a surcharge. Be sure to read over the supplier's terms to discover what the total is before you book your rental.

Do I need insurance to rent a car in Bahrain?

When cruising through Bahrain or the rest of country, you'll need insurance. Almost every supplier needs proof of insurance before you rent a car. Many countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase interim coverage with the rental supplier.

Unlimited miles is a great option if you plan to do a bit of sightseeing or visit a lot of business associates all over Bahrain. You can cruise wherever you like and not incur additional charges. Go over your policy to find out if there are any limitations.

Before you leave the lot

Before you begin on your Bahrain adventure, make sure you check out a few things before you leave the rental lot. It's worth the time to:

  • Walk around the car and determine if there is any dents or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
  • Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
  • Figure out how to work the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are navigating a new area
