KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Djibouti

  • Discover the advantages of car hire in Djibouti for optimal exploration of this vibrant city. With a hire car, you gain the freedom to navigate Djibouti's diverse landscape and visit numerous attractions. Experience the convenience of reaching nearby destinations like the mesmerising Lake Assal or the captivating Goda Mountains, which may be challenging to access by public transport. Djibouti car hire allows you to customise your itinerary, save time, and make the most of your visit to this fascinating destination.
  • Upon arriving in Djibouti, the main airport serving the city is Djibouti-Ambouli International Airport (JIB). Car hire offices at Djibouti Airport are conveniently located within the terminal building, offering easy access upon arrival. After collecting your luggage and passing through Customs, you can find the car hire desks by following the signs for "Car Rental". With car hire in Djibouti, getting from the airport to your desired destinations becomes convenient, allowing you to explore the unique attractions and scenic landscapes.
  • When driving in Djibouti, be mindful of the local driving culture and road conditions. Djibouti has a bustling city centre with busy streets and intersections. Be vigilant of pedestrians, cyclists, and motorbikes, as they may manoeuvre through traffic. Look out for informal street vendors and animals crossing the road, especially in residential areas. Be cautious while navigating roundabouts, as they are commonly used in Djibouti's road network. Familiarise yourself with local road signs and regulations to ensure a safe and pleasant driving experience.
  • When driving in Djibouti, be prepared for heavier traffic during typical rush hours, which occur from around 07:30 to 09:00 and from 16:30 to 18:30. During these times, certain main roads, like Avenue 13 Janvier and Rue de Pekin, may experience increased congestion. Djibouti does not face significant challenges due to seasonal changes, as it has a predominantly dry and hot climate. However, it's essential to exercise caution if venturing into mountainous areas, such as the Goda Mountains, as road conditions can be challenging and require careful navigation.
  • Book your car hire in Djibouti at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Car hire insurance in Djibouti

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Djibouti car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend being aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Djibouti.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a non-deductible option to your Djibouti car hire.
