KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Walvis Bay

  • Choosing car hire at Walvis Bay offers numerous advantages compared to alternative transport options. With a hire car, you can enjoy the flexibility and convenience of exploring the stunning desert landscapes and charming coastal towns that are hard to reach by public transport. Places like the majestic Namib Desert, with its towering dunes, or the picturesque coastal town of Swakopmund, known for its German architecture and sandy beaches, which can take between three and four stops to get to from the city centre, if you take public transport.
  • When considering car hire in Walvis Bay directly from Walvis Airport (WLV), you will find the car hire desks conveniently located in the Arrivals hall of the main terminal. There is no airport shuttle service to the car hire offices, but the short walking distance makes it easily accessible. Popular car hire companies like Avis Car Rentals and Hertz Car Hire operate from the airport, offering a variety of vehicles to suit your needs. One of the most popular car hire companies at Walvis Bay Airport is Budget Car Rentals. Known for their excellent service and diverse fleet of vehicles, Budget Car Rentals for car hire in Walvis offers special features such as unlimited mileage, 24/7 roadside assistance, and flexible rental durations.
  • When choosing a car hire in Walvis Bay, it's important to be aware of pedestrians and cyclists, who may be more prevalent in areas such as the city centre, along the waterfront promenade, and in residential neighbourhoods like Walvis Bay Central, Meersig, Langstrand, and Vineta. These areas tend to have higher foot traffic, especially during peak hours and weekends.  Additionally, popular tourist spots like the Walvis Bay Lagoon and the National Marine Aquarium attract pedestrians and cyclists, who share the roads with vehicles, as there are no dedicated cycling lanes.
  • Rush hour in Walvis can occur between 7:00 and 9:00, and again from 17:00 to 19:00, primarily on Main Street and Coastal Road. During these times, driving a Walvis Bay car hire means facing traffic congestion, so it's best to plan accordingly. Another consideration is the seasonal weather. While Walvis doesn't experience extreme winter conditions, heavy rainfall can occasionally affect road conditions. Winter in Walvis Bay typically occurs between the months of June and August. In terms of rainfall, the wettest months in Walvis Bay are usually from November to March. It's important to be cautious of road conditions during and after heavy rainfall, as it may lead to reduced visibility, slippery surfaces, and the possibility of minor flooding in low-lying areas. One such area is the eastern part of Walvis Bay, closer to the Kuiseb River.
