You are not travelling alone, but with friends or your partner to Nairobi? Then the additional driver option might be something for you. Simply specify an additional driver when booking your rental car. In that way you can take turns driving the rental car so that no one gets tired of driving long distances. Remember, however, to show your driver's license and ID card to the local car rental company.

If you want to enjoy your trip to Nairobi and the rest of Kenya completely stress-free, we recommend that you take out fully comprehensive insurance without excess. So even in the event of damage, you will not have to pay any additional costs.
