Why Choose Car Hire Uganda Self-Drive


Today in Uganda youth below 25 years of age are not permitted to drive rental cars. Many Uganda car rental companies won’t give out or trust any youth below 25 years of age to drive their cars. However, so do other car rental companies and considering the government Law, a person above 18 years is considered mature enough to join the Army, Vote, pay taxes, and go clubbing.

What is the minimum Age to rent a car?

Due to more accidents caused by drivers less than 25 years than any other age groups. Uganda Car Rental companies have penalized drivers under 25 years of age to rent or drive their cars.

However today it is not bleak as it was a thousand years ago, when car rental companies refused car rentals less than 25 years. Now drivers between 21-24 can now rent a car in most locations of Uganda.

In most cases, youth drivers ages 20 to 21 or 24 have been made to pay a daily surcharge depending on the period, location and type of car. Prices for car categories such as luxury car hire Uganda, vans, SUVs limits renters to rent cars.

For Drivers fewer than 18 and 19 are mostly or completely unable to rent cars in most car rental companies in Uganda. In most cases agencies do not allow drivers below 18years, perhaps an additional pay for the privilege.

To avoid high payment rates to the Uganda Car Hire companies, compare fees and restrictions with rental agencies you need to rent from and other companies
