What is the most popular rental car category in Cape Verde?
Cape Verde is well known for its coral reefs, sandy shores, and beaches. Many adventurers leave the city to check out these striking scenes. If that sounds enticing, rent a full-size car or an SUV. Even if you don’t intend to take the road less traveled, you’ll value the extra legroom.
Should I get a luxury rental car in Cape Verde?
You’ll be happy to hear that there’s a broad range of both economy and luxury rental vehicles in Cape Verde. What you end up opting for will depend on what you’re willing to spend as well as what you plan to do. Specialty and prestige vehicles are hard to beat if you’re all about mod cons and comfort. If you’re splashing out, why not grab an SUV with all the bells and whistles, or perhaps a cushy mid-size sedan? Otherwise, if you’re just after a car to get you around town as cheaply as possible, go for an economy compact vehicle (or something else that won’t burn a hole in your pocket).
What happens if I get a speeding fine while driving a rental car in Cape Verde?
Generally speaking, your car rental company will bill the amount stated on the fine to your credit card, including local surcharges and taxes. Or they may share your information with local authorities, who’ll then issue a fine to your postal address.
