When you rent a car in Uganda, ask for unlimited mileage driving of the car. Car rentals that come with limited mileages come expensively as when you get off the limit of the mileage or the distance you are supposed to cover, you are likely to pay a premium fee for violating an agreement which mounts the expenses of the car rental services. So make sure that an agreement is made on an unlimited mileage system whereby you travel anywhere in Uganda without incurring additional costs.
Read the agreement given to you by the car rental agency before signing it. There always clauses in car rental agreement if violated can lead you paying a fine. Some of these clauses are fuel refill, early return and pick up place. So read them careful and put them in practice so that you do not violate them.
Before making a reservation of car rental Uganda, call your bank or any association you are attached like sometimes military or a non government organization to know if you have car rental insurance coverage. This helps dodge paying insurance for the vehicle thus saving some money on your budget travel.
When the above tips are put in practice, you are likely to save some money on car rental Uganda of which it is one of the items that takes the biggest share of your budget.
