Complete car coverWe always hire the best cars that we can in Namibia, and these rentals include unlimited mileage and local taxes.
Note that car drivers aged under 25 or 75 and over should specifically discuss their vehicle insurance with us in light of their age. In some cases, insurance cover for car hire may be restricted or supplements payable.
Note also that 4WD vehicles, and microbuses/people carriers may require different insurance provisions.
Spare tyresPunctures are rare, but they can happen. All of our Namibia hire cars have the tools to cope and a spare wheel. Namibia is a friendly place; people will usually stop to help you. In addition, if you wish, we can arrange an extra spare wheel for you, at a moderate cost (always payable locally) and should be requested on your booking form.
In addition to our advice before you leave the UK, our colleagues in Namibia will be happy to further discuss the route for your journey, with the latest local advice and tips. Driving in Namibia is a joy, it's a great way to see the country and meet the people.
It's good to have currency before you leave Windhoek, as fuel stations only accept cash; South African Rand and Namibian Dollars are interchangeable in Namibia.
