Car rental FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car rentals in Mumbai, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on 17 April 2024.
  • What are the requirements to hire a car in Mumbai?

    Drivers over the age of 18 are legally allowed to hire vehicles in India. However, some car hire locations in Mumbai only accept drivers over the age of 21, so it’s important to check this before booking car hire in Mumbai. It’s also important to obtain your IDP (international driving permit); you can apply for your IDP online, and it is a requirement for all hire cars in Mumbai. You will likely also need to show your passport and your driving licence from home to be able to secure hire cars in Mumbai.

  • What are the rules for driving in Mumbai?

    Whether you’ve opted for a compact economy car hire or a large passenger van hire, you’ll find the driver’s seat on the right-hand side of all Mumbai car hire. This means you will drive on the left-hand side of the road. Keep your passport, driving licence, hire paperwork and insurance details with you, and always wear a seatbelt. Though the legal alcohol limit is 0.03%, penalties for being over the limit are severe, so it’s wise to avoid drinking and driving. Before you arrive in Mumbai, we suggest checking with the department of motor vehicles to be sure you’re aware of any changes to the road rules.

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Mumbai?

    Regardless of your budget, it’s a wise idea to opt for a cheap car hire in Mumbai. Compact economy vehicles like the Suzuki Swift make it easier to handle traffic, which can be heavy in Mumbai, even outside of peak hours. Mumbai car hire with automatic transmissions are well suited for the slow-moving traffic of the inner city. If you need a little more space than what the compact vehicles offer but are still looking for cheap car hire in Mumbai, a mid-sized vehicle like the Volkswagen Vento would be a wise choice.

    When considering Mumbai car hire, it’s essential to prepare yourself for the parking situation. Mumbai is a bustling city with an abundance of cars on the road, so parking spaces can be difficult to find. Though many locals park on footpaths, this is not advisable for those with car hire in Mumbai. Instead, if you need public parking, it’s best to look for one of the city’s public car parks or towers. The MCGM Parking Lot and the Runwal Cumballa Hill have a large capacity, making them good bets for finding a secure parking space.
