Nairobi Guide

Nairobi’s vibrant atmosphere, cultural charm and proximity to some of Kenya’s most acclaimed natural attractions explain its appeal as a holiday destination.

The best place to get to know this African capital is the broad, multi-laned Kenyatta Avenue, famed for its flowering trees and shrubs. At the eastern end of the avenue is the Stanley Hotel's Thorn Tree Cafe, the most popular meeting place in the city, and a perfect spot to observe people in this multicultural town while enjoying a soothing drink. Just north of Kenyatta Avenue is the magnificent Jamia Mosque, the largest and most ornate in Kenya.

One of Nairobi’s attributes is that all its main sightseeing areas are within walking distance of each other. The highlights include the superb National Museum, Snake Museum and interesting National Archives, with an acclaimed exhibition of paintings and handcrafts complementing its collection of documents.

The central area of Nairobi has most of the city’s best accommodations and finest restaurants. Nightlife is exciting and varied, with bars and cafes to suit all tastes.

Nairobi is a convenient base from which to discover the wildlife of the Africa. Easily accessible is the world-famous Nairobi National Park, while, for the family, the nearer Langata Giraffe Centre is an entertaining day trip.

Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport has connections to many European and several US cities, and transportation into the city is regular and reliable.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
