What type of rental car should I get for my trip to Addis Ababa?

Whether you want a roomy family vehicle or a low-cost economy car, the sheer wealth of options in this town means you're certain to find a car that suits your needs. Some options include:

What age do you have to be to rent a car in Addis Ababa?

Normally, to rent a car in Addis Ababa you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the country. Additionally, many suppliers charge an added fee if you are under 25. Be sure to review the supplier's terms to determine what the total will be before you rent your vehicle.

Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Addis Ababa?

Insurance is required, wherever you rent a vehicle. However, you could already be covered by your existing car or credit card policies. Keep in mind, these policies may not cover you 100%, and you'll have to add it to your booking for Addis Ababa. Look into it before you book and, if it is needed, you can simply add it at the CarRentals.com checkout.

What is the difference between all the fuel policies?

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.

What fuel policy should I get?

We advise a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle topped off. But, if you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before bringing the car rental. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

Unlimited miles is a great option if you plan to do a little sightseeing or visit several business associates all over Addis Ababa. You can cruise wherever you like and not incur extra charges. Go over your policy to find out if there are mileage limitations.

Before you drive off

Be sure you go over a few items before you leave the lot on your Addis Ababa adventure. It's important to:

  • Look over the car and be sure there is no dents or scrapes. If you notice any, write it down on your paperwork
  • Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
  • Figure out how to work the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are navigating a new city
