 Kuwait Car Rental Mini Guide

If you are planning to rent a car in Kuwait and unsure what to expect, you have nothing to worry about as many of the leading international rental agents are represented here including Budget, Europcar and Sixt. You can rent popular models such as the Kia Sportage and Hyundai Accent at competitive rates. You will also find that all rental cars in Kuwait are automatic, giving you one less thing to worry about when driving in Kuwait. Driving in Kuwait is safe; however, it may seem very different and intimidating to those who have never driven in the middle east before. Compared to driving in the USA or Europe, driving in Kuwait can be a little daunting as city streets are often very congested and traffic can be difficult to navigate. Local drivers may appear aggressive, but it is more cultural than personal. Do you research on what to expect before you travel and hiring a car and self-driving in Kuwait should cause you no more problems than anywhere else in the region.
