Important information about Kigali car rentals

Yes, you can cross international borders with car rentals in Kigali. There aren’t any restrictions, and border crossings into Burundi, Tanzania, Uganda, and Kenya are accepted. However, you will need to inform your rental company about your travel plans so that they can advise you on how to cross the border with Kigali car rentals. Additionally, not all vehicle classes can be rented for cross-border travel. For example, an economy car rental is easily accessible, while a passenger van rental or an electric car rental won’t be available for cross-border travel. Generally, when traveling across the border with car rentals in Kigali, you’ll be required to pay extra fees for crossing the border and purchase supplementary insurance for your vehicle. In addition, if traveling to Uganda, you’ll need a COMESA sticker, while white and red reflective tapes are required for foreign cars in Kenya and Tanzania. Finally, you’ll also need to have a copy of the vehicle’s registration which will be checked at border points.

Yes, you can find car rentals in Kigali without a credit card. However, most car rental locations have it as their primary mode of payment. When you’re placing the deposit on your cheap car rental in Kigali, you’ll be required to provide a valid identification document as well. The name on the credit card must match your ID for a deposit to be made. MasterCard and Visa credit cards will be accepted in Kigali car rentals. Some rental companies offer flexible means of payment, allowing cash and debit cards to be used when paying for Kigali car rentals. Debit cards can be used when making a deposit, but cash will only be used when clearing any balances at the end of your rental period. Debit cards with the Visa logo will be accepted in most car rental locations in Kigali.

Before getting on the road with car rentals in Kigali, here is a breakdown of some of the traffic laws you should keep in mind. Traffic keeps to the right side of the road. You should always carry with you your driver’s license, a valid identification document, and the vehicle’s insurance. Younger children need to be in a car seat, and all occupants must wear a seatbelt at all times. You will be fined if found with a passenger younger than 16 years, not wearing a seatbelt. It is illegal to drive while drunk, and the legal blood alcohol limit is 0.08%, with offenders fined and jailed for 24 hours. Don’t use your cellphone while driving unless you have a hands-free device. Always stick to the speed limits. Finally, be sure to check with the Kigali department of motor vehicles if there have been any new laws enacted to be on the safe side.

International drivers looking for the convenience of driving themselves in cheap car rentals in Kigali should meet the following requirements. First, you must be 21 years old with a valid driver’s license from your home country. The license should remain valid for the entire rental period. You must also present a valid identification document, national ID, or passport, in addition to the driver’s license. If your license isn’t in English and doesn’t use the Roman/Latin alphabet, an International Driving Permit is required. It will be used as a translation of your driver’s license and should be provided alongside it. If you have a notarized translation of your national driver’s license, that should work too. Temporary licenses, learner’s permits, or copies of your national driver’s license will not be accepted in place of the actual document.
