Getting around

The best way to travel in Nigeria is by hiring a taxi or a chauffeur driven car. Driving yourself is not advised due to the limited road signage in the area. Taxi's can be hired from the roadside and chauffeur driven limousines are available at airports and most hotels. A target price would be in the region of N1500 per hour (approximately $10) with a two hour maximum if going to more than one destination.

Things you should know

Nigeria is a fast paced, vibrant society that is safer than external perceptions might indicate. Here are a few points to be noted: 

Drinking Water
Nigeria's water supply is improving however it is recommended to only consume water from sealed water bottles. Most good hotels provide a courtesy bottle to guests.

The currency in Nigeria is the Naira. There are approximately N150 to US$1.

Almost all hotels in Nigeria require you to pay before you get your key. Typically you are requested to pay 125% of the room rate and you will be refunded when settling the bill on your departure. There is merit in paying your bill using cash as some hotels, when presented with a card for payment, convert the naira sum using their own currency rate which can result in as much as a 15% increase in the cost.
