Top tips for hiring a car at Chennai airport

  • Car hire at Chennai Airport (MAA) is a popular choice for many travellers and an ideal way to explore the various temples and beaches in and around the city, without the stress of trying to figure out the public transport routes. It is also a good way to avoid the frustration that comes with trying to communicate with local taxi drivers and the high fees associated with them.
  • The traffic in Chennai can be incredibly busy and feels chaotic at times, so you will want to consider a compact car hire at Chennai Airport, to navigate the streets more easily. Hiring a car with an automatic transmission is also recommended to save on fuel costs, as the constant stop and start traffic tends to use up more fuel with manual transmission car hires.
  • Returning your Chennai Airport car hire is as simple as picking it up. While heading along the Airport Approach Road, look out for the car hire signs pointing you in the right direction. Follow the road signs to the entrance of the car hire at Chennai International Airport car park and look for signs overhead pointing you to the car company you used for your vehicle. Park the vehicle in the allocated area and return the keys; don’t forget to collect your belongings.
  • One of the benefits of hiring a car at Chennai International Airport, or anywhere else in India, is the option of either a self-drive hire or a hired car that comes with a dedicated driver. With the roads in Chennai being chaotic and sometimes difficult to figure out, arranging a car hire with a dedicated driver is an easy way to take control of your visit while being accompanied by someone who's used to driving in the city and knows their way around.
