Choosing the right vehicle for both your pockets and road experience is an important aspect of choosing the right car deal for you. In this article I try to look at some of the key and very critical aspects of choosing the best car hire deal for you.
Choosing the cheapest car hire deal in Kampala.
If you are running on a low budget, you will most likely want something that just does the job and saves you a few dollars. In this case the cheaper, the better. However your choice will most likely depend on what you intend to use the car for.
If your need is to simply get a car that can drive you from home to office within Kampala, your choice will be a Toyota Passo if you are really on a tight budget. If its not too bad then you could think of slightly better options like Toyota Sienta, Toyota Ractis or even a Primio. The daily rental fees will be somewhere between $30-$45.
If your intend to drive out of Kampala to lets Say Mbarara, with the exception of the Toyota Passo, the rest on the list above will do just fine for the same budget and with relative comfort. On the list for such work, you could add a Toyota Fielder and Toyota Rumion. They will come in cheap for the occasion!
If you plan to go to a game park, you could consider a Toyota Rav4 and Toyota wish. Be reminded that while Rav4 id 4WD, Toyota wish comes both in 2WD and 4WD. You may need the 4WD for such a trip.
Choosing a Comfortable Car for hire.
If you are looking to get a comfortable car while keeping an eye on your wallet, here are the options you have to hire in Uganda. For those travelling in midsize groups of 7, the Toyota Hiace and super custom are your best deals for car hire in Uganda. The two are fairly spacious and quite comfortable.
If you are a bit fewer then your best option will be a Landcruiser Prado. The TX Landcruiser prado will be ideal for 3 passengers seated in comfort. The car is efficient and can handle most roads in Uganda. Its fuel efficiency is also not too bad to your wallet.
Choosing a car for your game drive trip in Uganda.
If you plan to go to the wilderness and do some game tracking, you will need a car rental deal that is optimized for sightseeing. For the mid budget, a customized Toyota Super custom with an open roof will do. There are also extended Landcruiser customized for game drives and sightseeing. These are a whole lot more comfortable but you will fork a bit out of your pocket!
