Renting a Car in Kuwait

While it’s quite safe to say that renting a car in Kuwait is quite easy to do, there are still requirements that must be met before you rent a car in the country.

Here are the requirements:

  • Must be 18 years old and above.
  • An international driving license (for expats on a visit visa).

Important: Take note that national licenses issued by your home country will not be acknowledged. And even if you have an international driving license, you will still need to get a Kuwaiti license if you plan to drive in the country for a longer period.
