Basic protection is the policy that is generally included free of charge in any rental booking. At Entebbe Airport this only includes cover for third party liability. Theft and collision damage waivers are also included, but they carry a rather expensive excess. At our recommendation, for a little extra you can upgrade to premium cover. This will give you complete cover, including zero excess and insurance for flight delays or cancellations.
Always thoroughly inspect your car and make sure the descriptions match (especially for any damage you can see). Also, make sure everything is in good working order and you are comfortable driving the car. Lastly, remember to drive more cautiously in an unfamiliar car and location.
The rental agencies all offer extra add-ons like baby chairs, children's seats, booster seats and GPS locator systems to make your trip as smooth and comfortable as possible.
Uganda is hot, so remember to book a car with aircon, make sure you know what the fuel policy is and what the mileage limit is (otherwise you may pay extra for both). Also remember, prepaid bookings save you money.
The only car rental company that offers shuttle or pick-up services from Entebbe airport to off-airport locations is Europcar.
