Avis Car Rental Lagos Nigeria Guide - would I recommend them?
Renting from Avis car rental Lagos is not so difficult. They are one of the really big providers with a good fleet size and worldwide reputation.
In Lagos, before I use a car rental service I always try to consider the following. Where am I going?
If traveling on a long journey, I ask for a car with good size trunk(booth) and plenty of interior space. Nigerian roads can be uncomfortable so a good solid car should be a priority. Safety record & service history
I won't choose a car below a year or maximum 2 years old. Driving on Nigerian roads can wear a car fast. So for safety make sure it is a relatively new vehicle, that is serviced regularly. Check tires, radiators, batteries and overall cleanliness. Competent Chauffeur
Your driver would be your most important asset on the road, particularly if you are new to the state or your knowledge is poor. You want someone who can find alternative routes to traffic congested roads.Flexible pricing
Sometimes I may want to keep my car for longer and would expect a reduced rate the longer I keep the vehicle.
I use Avis because they meet the above criterion. If you are coming from outside the country you can arrange to be picked up from the airport or anywhere in Lagos and dropped off as required.
I deal with Mr Okwa Ogochukwu at their headquarters at Apapa. He is a young, friendly chap who calls himself OG. I think that comes from his surname and he's quite funny too.

There are always a good selection of cars to choose from. Prices range from about ₦22,000 per day for a Toyota Avensis to ₦50,000 per day for high end cars like a Mercedes E-class or a Range Rover.
The longer you keep the vehicle the cheaper. If you are coming into Lagos locally or from abroad you can use the form below to reserve a vehicle or find more information about their services.
