A rental car allows you to get around the top sights easily in Mahboula. If you're traveling on a shoestring and want to make your budget go further, a mini or a compact is a great choice. These zippy cars are cheap to run and a breeze to park. If you've got the kids in tow, a full-size car or an SUV will give you plenty of space.
First of all, there's a huge range of both economy and luxury vehicles to rent in Mahboula. What you end up opting for is largely dependent on your budget and what you're hoping to do. Specialty vehicles are hard to beat if you're all about comfort and class. If you feel like splashing out, why not go for a fully kitted-out SUV, or perhaps a fancy medium-sized vehicle?

Generally, one of two things will happen. Your chosen rental car company may charge the fined amount to your credit card. This is the usual practice. Otherwise, it may give your contact details to the relevant local agency so the fine is sent to you directly.
Although there are a few exceptions, seat belts are compulsory in Kuwait City.
It's against the law to use your cell phone while driving around Mahboula, and you could also be issued a fine for simply holding your phone if you're in control of a vehicle. That being said, the use of hands-free or Bluetooth functions is allowed, as long as your attention remains on the road.
Mahboula has strict rules and regulations about drinking alcohol while driving, with the legal limit set at 0.0% BAC (blood alcohol content). Grab a taxi or use a ride-sharing service if you plan on having a drink or two while you're out.
