Hertz in Manama

Hertz car rental in Manama is extremely easy, and as Bahrain’s capital is so packed with interesting attractions getting around by hire car makes perfect sense. You can rent a car in Manama easily and quickly by locating your nearest Hertz rental branch in the city.

Manama is something of a driver’s paradise, with the city’s network of roads recently thoroughly overhauled to cope with the growing congestion. A series of ring roads and main highways connect all the residential districts with attractions such as Arad Fort, Adhari Park and the Bahrain National Museum. It’s easy to get to other parts of the country too from here, as all roads in Bahrain lead to Manama.

Driving and Parking in Manama

You will need a full driving licence and must be over 21 to rent a car in Manama. You will also need an International Driving Permit (IDP). For more information about driving regulations in Manama, take a look at our page about renting a car in Bahrain.

If you rent a car in Manama be aware that to park outside shopping malls, office blocks and residential complexes you’ll have to pay at the nearest parking meter. There are several good car parks and metered slots, and you can pay either with your credit card or cash.

The shopping malls in Manama all used to offer free parking, but as the number of cars has escalated there is now usually a charge. Valet services in some malls are free, and in underground parking areas beneath office and residential blocks you’ll need a permit. However, despite the restrictions parking is not a great problem in Manama, and even if you’re visiting the Manama Souk there’s a convenient pay-parking area just off the King Faisal Highway.

Driving in and around Manama

Key routes

Manama is the main hub of Bahrain’s road network, and its road system is being transformed by heavy investment to cope with increasing demand. Roads in the Old Quarter are being widened, and the key routes here are the Isa al Kabeer and Exhibition Avenue. These are all ring roads built between the 1930s and 1980s.

Roads in the district of Manama Souq have all been widened to take heavier traffic flows.

The causeway connecting Manama with Muharraq replaced an old wooden bridge and now connects the islands, with the construction in 1932 of Bahrain International Airport kick-starting development across the whole area – a process that continues today.

Major Highways

The Al Fateh highway in the Old Quarter is popular with residents and tourists alike, conveniently connecting the centre of the city with the suburbs. This and other roads in Manama continue to proliferate and meet the highest modern standards, so it’s easy and safe to travel across the whole country from your base in the capital. Bear a few things in mind when you drive in Bahrain for the first time, however:

• You drive on the right hand side of the road in Bahrain.
• It is prohibited to smoke while you’re driving here.
• You must use seat belts in front and back if they’re fitted.
• If you’re using a mobile phone, you’ll need to have a hands-free system for use in the car; otherwise you could be stopped and given a fine.
• Carry your driver documentation with you at all times, including insurance and rental agreement.
• Most of the roads in Bahrain are new and meet the highest standards, and as the country is for the most part flat it’s easy to drive to other locations.
• Bahraini drivers are amongst the best-behaved in the region, unhurried and courteous, and any erratic vehicles will usually have foreign plates.
• Road signage conforms to the European ISO standard and is plentiful and well positioned.
