What kind of Avis rental car should I get for my trip to Francistown?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Francistown. Compact or economy automobiles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips.

Is insurance required when you rent a car in Botswana?
In Botswana 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.
