Car Rental FAQs

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.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Mumbai?
