Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best prices on a Kampala Hertz car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. However, booking your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I carry with me when I get my car rental in Kampala?
Be sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Kampala's minimum age to rent a car?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Kampala is 18. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Hertz's policies to find out if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Kampala?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Kampala. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Kampala getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Uganda?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Hertz in Uganda. Many of the major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) generally offer coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Kampala. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Hertz car rental?
Hertz does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Hertz car rental?
We recommend a full to full policy. You should receive your vehicle with the needle at "F". But, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Hertz. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Kampala certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Kampala.
Can I get a one-way rental from Hertz?
Hertz usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at another location. However, there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
