Important information about Lagos car hire

When you rent a car in this location you can generally take it to several West African countries including the Benin Republic, Ghana, and Togo. For specific details about any country you may wish to take your car rental in Lagos, it is recommended to contact your local rental agency for more details. It is important to remember that there may be higher fees for crossing the border as well as insurance requirements if you plan on taking a Lagos car rental to another country.

One of the great things about renting a car in Nigeria and its surrounding areas is that you can usually pay for your car rental in Lagos with a credit card, a debit card, or even cash at the end of your rental. That said, most of the rental car companies here are going to require that you have a credit card to rent a car as they will not rent a car with a debit card or cash alone. You should also keep in mind that when you rent a car they may require authorisation on your card for a substantial amount depending on the type of car that you rent.

While visitors coming to Nigeria can drive rental cars here there are probably some important things that you need to keep in mind before you hit the road in your car rental in Lagos. One of those important things to know about driving a cheap car rental in Nigeria is that there is a lot of traffic and therefore a lot of traffic jams. It is not uncommon for something that should usually take five or 10 minutes to turn into a two-hour ride in your luxury car rental in Lagos because of traffic. You are most likely going to find these kinds of traffic problems in big cities like Lagos. With that in mind, it is best to give yourself some extra time to get to your destination when you drive. Another thing to remember is that drivers in this area don't always obey traffic lights or stop signs, so keep that in mind as you approach an intersection in your people carrier rental. During the rainy season that occurs from May until October, roads can often flood and fill with potholes, so bear that in mind when driving a cheap car rental. If you plan on driving outside of a major city, make sure your petrol tank is full as it can be hard to find fuel sometimes in remote areas. You should also take note of the fact that on the last Saturday of the month, roads in major cities can close for road cleanup.

For visitors that are coming to this part of the world to rent a car at one of the car hire locations in Lagos, you will need to present a valid driving license from your country of residence. The license in question must have the name of the renter on the license and it must contain a picture of the renter as well. If your license is not in the English language, you will also need to present a document of some type to help the rental car company translate your license into English.
