What you need to know about car rentals in Dakar
How do I get a Dakar Hertz car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, no matter when you book. But getting your car ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Dakar?
Make sure to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Dakar?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Dakar is 21. Take time to review Hertz's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Dakar?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Dakar. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV will have more room and offer a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little luxury on their Dakar trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Senegal?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Senegal. Many of the major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually cover your car rental. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Dakar. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Hertz require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Hertz requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Dakar. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to return my Hertz rental with a full tank?
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the car with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to Hertz.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Dakar definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Dakar Hertz offer one-way car rentals?
Hertz typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at a different location. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
