Car Hire Dhaka International Airport

Dhaka International Airport in Bangladesh is better known worldwide as the Zia International named in honor of Ziaur Rahman, former president of the country. The airport is located at a 17 kilometers distance from the cosmopolitan center of Dhaka.

Dhaka International is the main transportation hub in the country catering to a large number of international flights, including the nation’s national airline, Biman Bangladesh. The airport is strategically located providing easy and quick transfer of passengers arriving at the airport connecting them to various destinations in Dhaka and beyond.

The airport sees more than 5 million passengers commuting through its two terminals in a year. It is well equipped with a range of modern facilities and it provides ancillary services including information desks, rental car agencies, ATMs, restaurants etc.

Rent a Car

The airport serves as a primary base for international travelers where they can make necessary arrangements for hotel accommodation, ground transportation, currency exchange etc. before stepping out of the terminal. Rental car agency counters which include a few prominent western brand names are located within the terminal for the convenience of passengers looking for a stylish mode of travel in the city as well as extra mobility in their onward journey.

Hire cars can be obtained either with or without a chauffeur for competitive rates. However, before you decide to rent a car you should also pay consideration to the nature of your visit, duration and your travel itinerary.

Getting Around

Dhaka is the capital city as well as an economic and cultural hub in Bangladesh. Given its massive historical significance, rich architectural heritage and modern commerce and trading hub Dhaka is one of the main destinations for many people arriving in the country. The city has a good network of transportation covered by public and private modes.

Buses operate through the city, connecting to various major destinations in the country. Though it is one of the cheapest options for travel they tend to be dreadfully crowded and quite noisy. Cycle and auto-rickshaws are the most popular mode of travel for short to moderate distance journeys. Fares should be settled only after keen negotiation to avoid being overcharged. In a city that is exceptionally congested at any time of the day and where traffic moves even slower than snail pace this is a comparatively better choice for getting around.

Taxis can be hailed at Dhaka International to transfer visitors to their various destinations in town. However, it is not that easy to find a taxi from the streets unless you book one from your hotel.

With traffic, congestion, crowds and a snail pace, making public transportation in Dhaka a less than desirable option a better option is to consider hiring a car at the airport, especially if your travel itinerary takes you to places beyond Dhaka. A chauffeur driven hire car is a good deal unless you are prepared to tackle the traffic and crowds as well as the unorthodox local drivers on your own.
