Important information about Dar Es Salaam car rentals

While it is possible to take a rental car across the border, certain restrictions and requirements apply that you should be aware of. Many rental companies charge extra insurance and other fees to take a vehicle across a foreign border. If you’d like to take your rental car from Dar es Salaam into another country, we recommend checking with the different rental companies in advance of your trip. In the event you do go, you must have a passport and other forms of identification to show the border agents. You must also let the agent know how long you intend to be in the country. Most companies have restrictions on taking a passenger van rental across a border, so it’s wise to ask ahead of time. Always let the rental company know if you plan on crossing a border or you could forfeit your rental agreement.

Credit cards are the preferred form of payment for cheap car rentals in Dar es Salaam, but a debit card may be acceptable. You must provide a valid driver’s license and two other forms of identification with your name, such as government papers, an insurance card, or a passport. You will also need an International Driver’s Permit. Most agencies require the driver to be at least 23 years old; if you are younger than that, you may have to pay extra fees. A hold will be placed on the card until the rental car is returned, and in the case of a debit card, this fee comes from your bank account. It may be possible to rent a car using cash, but it’s more expensive and riskier.

Road laws for driving in Tanzania are comparable to other countries, but keep in mind that the roads are often in poor condition. Driving while intoxicated is illegal, and you must always wear a seatbelt. The traffic signs can be difficult to read, so be sure to have GPS or a good map available. Drivers must yield to emergency vehicles and law enforcement. Using cell phones while driving is prohibited. When driving your car rentals in Dar es Salaam, pay attention to traffic lights, and remember that left turns are not allowed at red lights. Drivers for car rentals in Dar es Salaam must be at least 23 years old, and must show a driver’s license and passport when asked. If there are roundabouts, drivers must yield to cars already in the circle, and never stop in the roundabout. Take care to follow the speed limits, and know that aggressive driving is prohibited.

Drivers must acquire an International Driver’s Permit (IDP) to drive car rentals in Dar es Salaam, which can be obtained from a travel agency or at the car rental location. You must have a valid driver’s license and two other kinds of identification, including a passport, insurance card, or military ID card. Most rental agencies require a credit or debit card, and if insurance is not included, you must purchase it from the company. Only the person whose name is on the rental agreement can drive the vehicle; violating this rule might incur a fine. Be certain to always have your identification and rental agreement on hand while driving.
