The principal requirements of hiring a car for self drive are the driver’s license, identification card and passport and payment of the cash.

What are the requirements of renting a car and self drive in Uganda?

The principal requirements of hiring a car for self drive are the driver’s license, identification card and passport and payment of the cash.

As Self Driving Uganda, the minimum age of hiring a car with us is 21 years. Though, the age of driving a car in Uganda is 18 years.

All our cars have comprehensive insurance covering third party and collision damage waiver hence protecting the client from the possible liabilities in case of any damages caused during the self-drive travel experience.

Electronic payment for self drive car hire is allowed but not less than 14 days before the time of starting the trip. Cash payment is the most preferred mode of payment. The currencies accepted by Self driving Uganda are Uganda Shilling, US dollars, Euros and Pound sterling.

The car rental quotation excludes the fuel expenses. We let the client fuel expenses on his/her own as it is very difficult to estimate the distance to be covered by the client and how much fuel is to use.

Pick up and drop off of the vehicle is done at any point of our jurisdiction (Entebbe Airport, Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda and Tanzania). Note that pick up and drop off away from Entebbe Airport and Kampala come with a fee depending on the travel expenses accrued to reach the pickup or drop off point.

With the East African community memorandum of understanding, Cross border travel is possible especially in Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania, Congo and Burundi. However, the client must inform us beforehand on which countries to travel to so that we are able to prepare the vehicle cross border paperwork.

The requirements do not stop at the process of hiring a car, it goes beyond, during the self-drive experience and when due to drop off the car keys after the trip.

The first thing to do at the end of the self-drive car hire experience is to call us and let us know the time and the place of dropping off the vehicle.

Endeavor to make a stopover at the washing bay to clean off the dust and remove all the rubbish in the vehicle. Our vehicles are always hired and handled over to clients clean at the start of the trip henceforth we expect the client to return it clean. This is not mandatory but courteous.

A quarter a tank of fuel should be left in the vehicle during the key drop off at Entebbe Airport and areas around Kampala. For areas far away from our offices, ensure to pay or refill the agreed fuel capacity to enable our staff to deliver the car to the office or garage.

Upon meeting our staff at the drop off point of the vehicle, inspection of the car is carried out to cross-check the dents and damages which could have happened. We expect our client to be honest and report in case of any fault that could have occurred on the vehicle.
