What is the most popular rental car category in Nigeria?

Searching for a vehicle with a slightly larger interior than a compact car and with fantastic gas mileage? Climb behind the wheel of an intermediate car. It has all the standard features of a smaller ride, but with more luggage space and enough room to fit four to five adults. Hit the streets of Lagos and Kano in comfort and style without burning a hole in your pocket. You'll also be able to park your shiny wheels like a real pro!

It's always great to head out of the city, and if you do, get ready to be richly rewarded. With sandy shores, beaches, and tablelands to discover, Nigeria knows how to do an exciting day trip. A larger vehicle like an SUV or a four-wheel drive will give you and the crew more room and comfort for those long, scenic drives.

Should I get a luxury rental car in Nigeria?

You'll be glad to hear that there's an impressive variety of both luxury and economy rental vehicles available in Nigeria. What you go with depends on how much you want to spend and the activities you've got planned. Prestige vehicles offer the best in mod cons and comfort. If you want to indulge yourself, why not go for a high-end SUV, or perhaps a flashy mid-sized sedan? Otherwise, if you just need a car to get from A to B as cheaply as possible, you're better off choosing an economy compact vehicle (or something else that won't blow your budget).
