Bahrain Road Trip

Cross posted from Bahrain Forum:

We'll be visiting Bahrain for three days in December and we'd like to rent a car to hit main sites outside Manama. A couple of questions:

1. Is it easy to drive around, in terms of traffic and road conditions? For example, how long would it take to drive from Manama to the Causeway? (BTW: I live in the UAE and am fully aware of the quality of driving in the Gulf.)

2. Is there a good car rental agency you could recommend?

3. If a car rental isn't workable, is there a one-day tour of Bahrain's highlights?

Thanks in advance!

1. Re: Bahrain Road Trip

1) It is easy to drive around, however, there are a few reckless drivers which I am pretty sure you also have in DXB so you should be alright. Manama to causeway can take about 30-45 mins without traffic.

2) There are a few good car rentals at the airport. Some will even drop off your car off to your hotel as well as pick it up right as you are ready to leave.

3) Surely there are travel tour guides available to show you around Bahrain, however not really necessary since Bahrain is so small.
