Tel: +973 1733 9339.
Many international and local car rental companies are represented at the airport.
There are taxis outside the terminal, but they tend to overcharge foreigners. It is better to phone for a metered taxi service, which should cost around BD4 to the city, a 15 minute drive.
Facilities include banks and bureau de change, restaurants, cafes and bars, gift shops, a post office, communications centre, tourist information and a prayer room. The Bahrain Duty Free shopping complex is internationally acclaimed. Disabled facilities are good; those with special needs should contact their airline in advance.
Short and long-term parking facilities are available in front of the terminal. The cashier counters are available at the exits and they are open 24 hours. No credit cards are allowed, only cash payment. A free shuttle bus service operates between the terminal and the long-term car parks.
