5:0 min Read


The Kingdom of Bahrain being the hotspot for expats for more than a decade is still a developing country. Though the government has approved the Bahrain metro project in November 2021. The current existing modes of public transportation are buses and taxis.

The bus route doesn't cover all the parts of Bahrain and also comes with scheduled timings. Though there are 5 private companies running taxis in Bahrain, many people complain that they need to wait at least 30 mins to get a taxi. In addition, taxis fall on the expensive side for the living souls in the country.

People in Bahrain feel tiring to travel in buses due to its humid weather conditions and the time taken. Choosing to rent a car from when you are in Bahrain is a wise action. Even the fear of Covid-19 made people avoid public transport. This increased the use of the rental car as it includes all the facilities a traveler needs. From being budget-friendly, and hygienic to getting 24/7 assistance when in need. So, people living here and tourists prefer renting a car over traveling in buses and taxis due to the ease of renting a car.

In Bahrain, you need to possess a Central Population Registration (CPR) card to own a car. This makes it difficult for non-residents to own a car in Bahrain.

Avoid this stress of extra expenses that you get when you own a car.
