Most of the time, tourists find it hard to select which company to go with for self-drive or a car with a driver because of different factors. And below are some of the factors to consider
But most of the companies are selected depending on the Reviews and the price, But the highest number of the tourist companies’ reviews don’t show the services offered by the company in Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Kenya
Different clients have different thoughts on the review
There is no company in East Africa that gives zero Excess insurance to the car for self-drive. If the company tells you that there is no excess insurance please look for another company. Most of the companies have comprehensive insurance and third party which is paid yearly and this insurance cater for a few parts of the car most of the time this insurance doesn’t cover the interior part of the car like radio wind glass tires and radio. so it’s always better to ask the company the time of the insurance they have for the car.
Excessive insurance is always determined by the size and value of the car the excessive insurance for the Landcruiser tx is different from that of the Toyota Rav4
when thinking of hiring a car for self-drive you need to think about the price of the car per day, you may rent a car at a cheaper price but during your safari, you will need a lot of patience to reach the final destination. you are advised to research the price of the car and ask yourself why the rates are different from others.carrental4x4 we give a friendly price for the car rental. In Tanzania when your looking for a self-drive car or the car with a Driver/Guide the price is slightly higher than that of Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda but Uganda is the country with the lowest price for cars on self-drive or with a driver. the price of a car is determined by different factors like Fuel, distance, car Value, and season.in peak season the car prices always are high due to high demand and in low season the price is always low
- Fuel consumption
Different cars have a different rate of consumption, the consumption rate is determined by the size of the car engine consumption rate of the 4×4 car is always high compared to the 2wheel. The common usual fuel we normally take is petrol and diesel. the diesel car normally is always expensive in price and also expensive in servicing though the fuel is cheaper than that of diesel. Petrol cars are nice and move faster but the fuel is expensive in every country.
- company Reviews
I can’t advise any client of mine to book the car with a company depending on the company reviews for self-drive and you really need to consider it to a less extent because the reviews at times are not the same as company services
- Terms and conditional
It’s always advisable to inquire about the company terms and conditions for the car before you make a conclusion. different companies have different terms and conditions depending on the country you travel to. Some companies allow you to hire a car for self-drive but they gave you the speed mileage carrental4x4 all our cars are hired for unlimited mileage. Some East African countries don’t offer the services of self-drive but carrental4x4 we offer self-drive in all east African countries
