Alternatively, you can call the reservation desk and speak with them or visit the offices and physically meet the team.

  1. Request for rates

After confirming the type of car you will hire and finding out the details, ask for a quote. A detailed quote will be sent to you. Our car hire prices cover comprehensive insurance, unlimited mileage and local government taxes.

  1. Haggle for prices

After getting to know the price of the rental car, you can negotiate on the final price, ask for a discount, more so if you plan to stay with the rental car for many days. The longer the duration of renting the car, the lower the car rental price and vice versa. After agreement on the final price with your car provider, the system of payment is communicated; Pesa Pal or through a bank account. An invoice that includes the bank account is issued. You also agree on the percentage of money to pay as deposit.

  1. Make a Deposit

Depending which car rental company you are dealing with, you will pay a deposit of 30% or 50% of the price quote. You can choose to pay full amount but if you can’t, then pay the balance upon arrival when picking the car.

  1. Confirm booking

When the car provider receives the deposit, they issue a soft copy of the stamped and signed receipt and send it to you to show what you have paid for. This confirms your reservation of the car.

  1. Pick up your rental car

Before setting off to go pick your car, remember to carry the documents required by the car providers. You are requested to present your national ID or passport photo when going to pick the car. And before handing over the car keys, you must complete the balance of car rental price.
