If you are searching to save money on your next rental car in Uganda, then the 5 tips down should be put into serious consideration.

1- Book Earlier – You should ever book before your trip, mainly during the traveler’s peak season. The majority of Uganda car rental companies use a little fleet of 4×4 cars so if you don’t book your car early, you might miss out on the car of your selection and even poorly, overpay for a car when you book the car late. So go online and look for your perfect rental a month or weeks before your flight to avoid such stress.

2- Avoid Booking the car at the airport – Beginning your rental at the airport is more costly than beginning in the city at the office and this is because the car rental companies add a tax fee for moving the car to Entebbe airport. Sometimes the cost will be included in the list price and sometimes divided and displayed on its own. Book a personal airport cab and ask for the office place, pick up the car from the office premises, and start on your road trip.

3- Shop around – Don’t fast book with the first Uganda car rental company you contact as you attempt to get a higher cost than you predicted. There are around 100 car rental companies prepared to give you their services and so go online and look through Google results for the leading 10 or 20, inquire from approximately 5, and compare the costs, terms, and conditions before choosing which company to book with.

4- Book a fuel-economizing car – Another sure route of saving money on your next road trip is by booking a fuel-economizing car, a car that won’t cost you a lot but will surely do the job. Saloon cars and hatchbacks are some of the most affordable cars for hire in Uganda. A Toyota Rav4, Premio, and Harrier are ideal for road trips around the city on business trips or leisure, cost range from US$ 50 to 70 making them economy cars ideal for short road trips and trips around the city.

5- Ask for car rental extras – You will save a lot of money when you choose to forego extras such as GPS, child seats, travel maps, local SIM card, and phone as well airport transfers. You can even use your phone as a GPS and again still use your international number for calls and as per airport transfer costs, you can smoothly get an airport cab to drive you to the car rental office where you will locate your rental car.
