This is how one may keep the costs of renting a car in Uganda down
Put into consideration the size of the vehicle that best suits your needs. Bigger vehicles always come with greater prices. So if you are traveling one or as a couple always try to hire smaller car that is less expensive because it will serve the same purpose as the big one but at a relatively lower price.
Look at the fuel consumption of each and every vehicle offered to you. You should know that most of the times you have to pay for the fuel of the vehicle when you rent it and normally the expenses of the fuel are not quoted in the pricing of the car hire package. You should ensure you hire a car in Uganda with a low fuel consumption rate.
Furthermore while one gets the car he/she should know the amount of fuel that is in the car given to hi/her and also the amount of fuel that is supposed to leave in the car when he/she returns. Some Uganda car rental companies give rent cars out with a full tank or half tank to kick start your journey but one has to be keen on the exact amount of fuel in the car since the company might trick you that it gave you a full tank vehicle yet it was the other way.
You should always look at the terms and conditions under which the car is rented to you. There are companies that rent car with a limited mileage system if you exceed their limit you are more likely to pay more money. So the advice is you should look for car rental services with unlimited mileages.
You should also check if the car rental company Uganda offer drop-offs and collection services as this can save some money. If the company offers the latter services, you never going to incur the costs of picking up the car from the office as you will not spend money on transport to take you to the office to pick the car or drop it.
You should also check if the insurance is included in the price quotation. This can save you money as you will not pay any additional money for insurance.
you should always try to minimize the cost of your car rentals expense while on a Uganda vacation so that you can spare some money that can be used on other items on your safari tour in Uganda.
