What do I need have with me when I pick up my car rental in Dakar?
Make sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Dakar?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Dakar is 21. Take time to review Avis's policies, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles in particular.
What kind of Avis rental car should I get for my trip to Dakar?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Dakar. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room for luggage and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Dakar trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Senegal?
In Senegal you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Avis car rental?
Avis does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Dakar. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Avis?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Avis rental with the needle at "F". However, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Avis.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Dakar?
Dakar certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Dakar.
Can I get a one-way rental from Avis?
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at another Avis. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
