Things to Consider While Hiring a Car for a Self Drive Uganda



Many people who hire cars in Uganda have different reasons, for example; family vacations, business meetings, airport transfer, foreign destination tours, personal car breakdown and also some might need a car for some personal interests. These people do not want to use public transport due to its inconvenience and insecurity.

Car hire services Uganda especially for self drive come with a lot of benefits.  However, if you are not careful enough, you may be disappointed with them.  You have to be critical while selecting car hire services to use.

Below are things to consider while hiring a car;


There should not be too much bureaucracy when choosing a car for hire. The new generation advocates for convenience so you should hire a car from a company with an easy booking process where by you just go to the internet and contact the company through the email then book a car for hire within a few minutes.  It should not take you too much time, remember time is money!


The car hire agency should allow you to make some adjustments of your reservation at your convenience if requested. Sometimes an emergency can come up and you have to change the dates for the car rental trip. The company should be very much willing to comply with any alternations you make in your reservation without any extra costs.

Security/ confidentiality

The car rental booking platform should be safe and protected with internet security certificates. None of your personal information should be allowed to leak to the internet pranks especially the credit card number or visa card number. We all know what would happen if any of your bank information is hacked.


The price quotation of the car hire services should be clear, there shouldn’t be any expense left out of the pricing. All expenses should be included in the quotation. Some car hire agencies leave out some extra costs like local taxes; toll both ticket fee and early return fines. At the end of the day, the client incurs more costs than expected.


The car hire agency should guarantee you consistence and dependable services, from the time of booking till returning the car. In case of any delay to deliver the car hire services to you they should communicate earlier and give a justifiable explanation for the cause of the delay.

If you put the above things into consideration, you can have a wonderful Uganda self drive car hire experience.
