Important information about Gaborone car hire

When visiting the city of Gaborone, you may want to look at cheap car hire in Botswana to explore the southern region of Africa with the fun and freedom of a road trip. With Hertz and Europcar, you will be allowed to enter into neighbouring countries such as South Africa, Lesotho, Namibia, Mozambique and Zimbabwe with relative ease. Always make sure you contact your car hire in Gaborone to arrange this at least 48 hours prior to the collection of your vehicle. You will be charged a cross-border fee, which will cover the applicable insurances and Over Border Permit. If you are in a large group, perhaps consider passenger van hire in Botswana for a great experience of a true African road trip.

You will find economy car hire in Gaborone easy without a credit card, should you wish to make use of your debit card instead. There are a few car hire locations in Botswana that will accept this form of payment, such as Hertz and Europcar. If you are paying by credit card, Visa and Mastercard are the most favoured for car hire in Gaborone. When you pay by debit card, you will need to hold a fully refundable deposit on your account, in case of damage that is not covered by insurance. You may find that you will not be able to get luxury car hire in Botswana without a credit card, though, due to the insurance needed by car hire companies.

When exploring with your Gaborone car hire, you will do so on the left-hand side of the road. Rules such as wearing seat belts in the front and rear of the car are standard, as is a zero tolerance of drinking and driving. You will need to keep your driver’s licence and insurance documents on you at all times when behind the wheel, and speaking on your mobile phone while driving is prohibited. If you need additional navigation help, consider booking a satellite navigation unit to assist with navigation. Car seats for children under three years of age are mandatory, and these can usually be easily hired from your car hire agency. Road signage includes English translations, and on the highways, you will find there may sometimes be a toll. Be sure to fill up with petrol before it’s too late in the evening, as most of the petrol stations are not open 24/7 and may close mid-evening. If you decide to go more rural on your road trip, ensure you have enough petrol in your car, as rural stations often run out of fuel. There are no electric car points for charging, so you will not be able to find electric car hire in Botswana.

The minimum car hire age in Gaborone is a bit younger than the UK; you will be able to hire a vehicle from as young as 18 years of age. You will be charged a young driver’s surcharge until the age of 22, and you will need to have your home country driver’s licence as well as an international driving permit. Always make sure you take along your photographic identification, such as a passport, which is always best for car hire companies in Gaborone. If you are paying by debit card, make sure you have enough money on the card to cover the refundable deposit, and consider contacting your car hire company to ensure you have all the right documentation before you collect the vehicle.
