Your Comprehensive Guide to Car Rentals from Bahrain International Airport 

Welcome to Bahrain, the island nation where history meets modernity! If you're landing at Bahrain International Airport (BIA), you're about to embark on an incredible journey. With Rhinocarhire at BIA, the road ahead looks promising. Dive into this guide to get every detail you need.

Top Reasons to Choose RhinoCarHire at Bahrain International Airport:

  1. Streamlined Pickup: Conveniently situated within the airport complex, RhinoCarHire ensures a hassle-free pickup right after your flight.
  2. Versatile Vehicle Selection: From sleek sedans perfect for business trips to roomy SUVs for family getaways, RhinoCarHire's assortment is designed to meet diverse needs.
  3. Economical Rates: Offering competitive prices and comprehensive packages, RhinoCarHire guarantees true value for your expenditure.

Exiting Bahrain International Airport:

  • Principal Exit Route: Shaikh Khalifa Bin Salman Highway is the main thoroughfare connecting the airport to Manama, the capital city.
  • Drive to Manama: Located merely 7 km away from the airport, Manama can be reached in about 10-15 minutes under regular traffic conditions.

Driving Know-How:

  1. Toll Points: The King Fahd Causeway, connecting Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, is the primary toll point. Ensure you have Bahraini dinars (BHD) handy for this toll.
  2. Road Conditions: Bahrain boasts a network of well-maintained, modern roads. However, as always, exercise caution in areas unfamiliar to you.
  3. Traffic Flow: While traffic is relatively smooth, anticipate busier roads during peak hours, especially near Manama's business districts.

Driving Etiquette in Bahrain:

  • Driving on the Right: Bahrain, like the USA, follows right-hand driving, which might be a comfort for American visitors.
  • Speed Limits: In urban areas, the general speed limit is 50-80 km/h, while on highways it ranges between 100-120 km/h. Local signs will provide specific limits.
  • Roundabouts: Vehicles inside the roundabout typically have the right of way, but it's crucial to be vigilant as norms can vary.
  • Required Documents: Have your valid driving license, RhinoCarHire's rental agreement, and passport at all times. An International Driving Permit (IDP) is advised for licenses not in English or Arabic.
  • Mobile Use: Similar to many countries, using a mobile phone without a hands-free system is prohibited.

Insider Tips for First-Time Visitors:

  • Parking: Opt for designated parking spots, especially in Manama where parking can sometimes be a challenge during peak hours.
  • Navigation Tools: Bahrain might be small, but a reliable GPS or navigation app can be immensely helpful.
  • Respect Local Traditions: While Bahrain is progressive, it's essential to respect local customs, especially during the holy month of Ramadan.

In Conclusion:

Renting a car from RhinoCarHire at Bahrain International Airport is your passport to an authentic Bahraini experience. Equipped with this guide and a sense of adventure, you're all set for an unforgettable Middle Eastern escapade.
