Where I come from, we say that "vehicles do not go for dowry negotiations". In other words, dowry negotiations are not a show. Your vehicle can break down and spoil you in front of your in-laws. Who wants a friend who will let you down on that special occasion? In any case, life is not easy. As you know and I know, a car is not 100 percent reliable because it can break down even at the most important time. However, divisions can be minimized or avoided together if you make the right choice from the beginning. The car to hire depends on destination and purpose. Is it for leisure, family, business, transportation or doing
Car rental benefits:
Car hire is also known as car rental or rental car is the best option if you want to visit several destinations in Kenya. Unlike organized safaris where the route and schedules are fixed, it allows a high degree of flexibility and hence detection. Similarly, car rental means a higher degree of integrity, security and independence. Unlike group safaris that gather people from different interests and backgrounds, car rental means that your interests are not distracted.
Car for rent in Nairobi.
The car to hire depends on destination and purpose. Is it for leisure, family, business, transportation or do you simply want to replace your divided? If you travel uphill, an RAV4 will handle most roads. But if you are thinking about Northern Kenya, beyond archery and Rumuruti, get a juggernaut -Land-cruiser not the Prado SUV type but a real one. Make sure you also get some new tires. But if you go to a business meeting, you can get an impressive salon. If you take your pet out on a sunny day or on the beach, you can get a convertible. For transport, it is small and large tracks including clearing and forwarding agents.
What are your car rental options?
In general, there are four rental options available to you. Self-driving, chauffeur driven, 4x4, unlimited mileage and one-way rental. The option to choose depends on your wishes and prevailing circumstances. If you are uncomfortable when someone else is on the wheel, then go for self-driving. Self-driving is also recommended when you need a higher degree of integrity. On the other hand, those who need more time to enjoy the scenery and relax are better with a driver option. A local driver also comes in hard when you are not familiar with local customs, languages, etc. In my opinion, a local driver is not just a source of valuable information but also your security guard. He is your interpreter of local art, which contributes to the overall experience. An important plus of using a driver is that you are only obliged to drive the car. Any unintentional costs incurred to the leased vehicle are the responsibility of the company.
Special car hire:
Security car hire is an element that comes into the market for a few. Celebrity and transport of valuables is another category all together. For these two, you not only need special equipment (armored cars), but you can also demand safety outfits and qualified driver services. A good example is the prepared security search when you took the World Cup on a world tour. This category of car rental is available through special arrangements because it requires armed guards in some cases.
How to rent your car:
Purpose, purpose and new purpose. Why do you need the car? This should always be in your mind. When you decide on this, the first step is to make a window management. The car rental market in Kenya is wide. International companies such as Herz, Budget, Europcar are represented in Nairobi and Mombasa. If you want to go locally or use multinational companies, your own choice. But always remember that at the end of the day, the budget and continuity elements will come into play. Do research and limit your alternatives to two or at most three agencies and submit requests to them. Ask what is included in their accommodation options. Look at the issue of fuel. Who's going to burn the car? There are two options here. A car rental company can leave the fuel responsibility to the tenant or, alternatively, they can burn for you. The best option is of course that the car rental company should bring the whole tank and you return it all over the tank. Alternatively, they can get the car empty and you also return it empty. If you let the car hire company pay the fuel for you, you stop paying a lot of premiums. Note If you choose to rent a car empty and return it empty, you cannot pick up any fuel in the car at the end of the rent. Filling in the car at the car rental departments can also be expensive for you. A better option is just to buy enough to take you to the public gas station. In addition to the fuel issue, continuity is a major problem. How will the company react in the event of division?
Adventure and discovery:
In addition to fuel, the mileage option should concern you. Car hire is about adventures and discoveries. Remember that you hire a car to be free of any movement restrictions. Personally, I will go for unlimited mileage at any time. This option does not restrict you to a particular radius. It can look expensive, but to the adventurous, it's cheap in the long run. Even if you want to stay within a certain radius, just go for unlimited mileage. The Nairobi center can look restrictive but an hour's drive will take you to wide open spaces and sought after breathing space.
Car rental agreements differ from one company to another. The normal procedure is to look for inclusions and exclusions. Think of mandatory insurance and extra or recommended covers. Some covers will include the passengers and leave the driver. In this case, you need a personal insurance cover. Local insurance companies are happy to offer monthly travel insurance. AAR will offer travelers an evacuation protection if you need emergency medical care.
On the rental day, make sure you inspect the car you get to avoid paying for repair of any damage that occurred prior to your rental. Some multinational companies have been accused of charging several unsuspecting guests for the same damage. Don't fall for this trick. Check the body for any dents. Any errors must be noted. Check the tire and make sure they are not worn out. Remember that you are responsible for any tire replacement.
On arrival in Nairobi you can rent a car at the airport. One alternative is to contact your travel agent so that a car is waiting for you.
Those who go on a safari are better off with an inclusive car rental option with insurance, driver allowance, fuel and park fee. In this way, guests put themselves and enjoy themselves. But if you are familiar with the country you can go on a self-propelled safari. But it is always good to have a company.
Insurance - Most of the cars come with the mandatory third party's insurance. However, some companies will have extensive covers. Ask your operator insurance that he offers.
In Kenya, the rule of the road remains. In the round, people coming from the right have freedom. Nairobi can also be a nightmare for the most experienced driver, but if you stay cool you will reach your destination in one piece and calm. Simply put, just give it away even when it may not be necessary. The public transport operator who is also called the Matatu driver can be very polite and rude at the same time. He will scare you to give way, but when things are not in his favor, he is the first to give in. A small downpour is likely to make Nairobi a Jam town. My best advice on such occasions is just to relax in your office and wait for the madness to ebb.
If you stay for a while or your company does not have to interfere with routine maintenance and disposal, just go for leasing. However, be careful about the contract you enter into. Some companies may actually sell you a car through the back door in the name of leasing.
