A new is here and travelling has been open following the devastating 2020 that was plagued with countless COVID-19 cases. Airports have been open and travelers are visiting Uganda again and if you are one of them and you decide to rent a car in Uganda for self drive or guided road trip, Tellanza Car Rental Uganda presents to you some tips to keep in mind before you make a final decision.
Make early reservation – This is a very important tip most especially if you are travelling during the high season. Not only do you stand the chance of missing out on a suitable car if you don’t book early enough, you also miss out on the early booking discounts offered by the majority of Uganda car rental companies including Tellanza Car Rental. So endeavor to book at-least 2 to 3 weeks before arrival.
Choose a spacious rental car – Dont only think about the price when you decide to rent a car in Uganda this 2021, take into account the size of the car’s interior and trunk before making a choice. The number of people you are travelling with plus luggage have to fully fit in for comfortable road trip. If you are traveling with 4 passengers, you can decide to go with a simple SUV like Rav4 but if you are more than 5, then you have to rent a safari van in Uganda that can easily accommodate both.
Give out complete information – When booking a rental car online or by phone, make sure you give the reservations team as much information as possible. Flight details, pick-up point (hotel/ residence), mobile phone number, travelling with children, driver’s license among other useful info the car rental reservations team may require.
Always make a deposit – Most of the Uganda car rental companies require a deposit to be made to confirm reservations of the rental and if you decide not to make a deposit and wait till arrival, then you are in for a surprise as you risk not finding the car you had earlier requested. The company will offer it to another client who made a deposit and get you an alternative ruing your trip before it begins. You can make a deposit of 30% to 50% and rest assured that your car is reserved.
Pick rental car from airport – It’s always much cheaper when you pick-up the car from Entebbe airport to avoid airport transfer fees of traveling to the car rental agency office. After the rental period is done, request you drop it off at the airport and save some money again.
Go for self drive – Given the current COVID-19 situation, its strongly advisable to opt for a self drive road trip over driver guided trip. Privacy and flexibility are the two advantages self drive offers but now more than ever, it also offers you space and reduces chances of getting infected with the virus as you only travel with people who you know have already passed the quarantine. So Keep safe and drive yourself around Uganda.
