Here are some of the important things we recommend you take a look at when receiving a rental car in Nairobi, Kenya.

  • Inspect the car exterior – Walk around the car and check for any dents or damages on the doors, windows, roof top and tyres. If you come across any damage, report to the company so as to get it fixed or noted to avoid additional expenses on return to car rental company.
  • Inspect the interior – Check to see that the dashboard is working as expected. Here you should be taking note of lights, fuel gauge, the functionality of the wipers; door locks, windows, air conditioning and generally the cleanliness of the car rental locations.
  • Inspect the engine – You surely don’t want to deal with engine problems during your planned trip. You should therefore take a general look at the engine, taking note of unusual sounds or things you see. While at the engine area, make sure to take a look at the lubricant and water levels in the Nairobi rental car. 
  • Check for spare tyre(s) – You wouldn’t want to get stranded and waste time in your trip because of a flat tyre. You therefore need to make sure that the rented car comes with spare tyre(s) that are in good working condition. Talk to us for car rental deals.
  • First aid box – The first aid box is a must have in any car. This is used to do first aid before getting to a hospital in case of an accident. Make sure that the first aid box is available and fully equipped with the necessary items.  
  • Simple mechanic tool box – It is important that the car comes with a simple mechanical tool box. This is helpful when fixing simple malfunctions or breakdowns that don’t necessarily need to be fixed by a mechanic.
  • Fuel amount – While most Nairobi car hire companies will hand you a fully fueled car, it is always important to check and take note of the fuel level. This will help you avoid any misunderstanding while returning the car.
