What do you need to hire a vehicle in Dakar ?

Each supplier features unique requirements to rent a car in Dakar DKR Airport and you must meet them in order to legally drive their cars. This mainly concerns documentary policy. Review the Dakar International Airport rental car checklist and prepare the necessary paperwork, in order to present it at the counter:

  • Driving licence. Companies require a full domestic driver's licence in the name of the head renter, which has been valid for a year or longer. If it’s not in English, an IDP may be required.
  • A credit card in your name. Provide the credit or debit card you used to book the auto. Make sure it has enough balance to pay the full reservation price, equipment, and deposit.

How much is car hire in Dakar ?

The best price for car hire in Dakar DKR Airport is £42 per day. The average daily rate is £70 and the maximum cost reaches £99 per day. Keep in mind that the cost depends on many factors, including the car category, the rental period duration, the company's pricing policy, and current demand.

Study how you can optimise the final rate and make your trip cheaper:

  • Book in advance. Early booking allows you to get a discount rate and enjoy a larger selection of deals. The optimal period to look for a vehicle is 2-4 weeks before the start of the trip. However, you can book even half a year in advance when travelling during the high season.
  • Choose the most suitable date to start your trip. The price of car hire depends on the starting date. If you have some flexibility, consider and compare prices during the week versus the weekend.
  • Benefit from a long-term trip. If possible, opt for a longer trip. Companies apply lower rates if your hiring period lasts at least 7 days.
  • Choose the right auto. Economy and Compact vehicles cost 50-70% less than 7-seater minivans and luxury models. Please take this into account when booking.
  • Consider alternative pickup locations. Shop around for the best price. Often, deals in non-airport locations are cheaper, no matter whether you have a vacation in London or Dakar International Airport.
  • Think about where to return. One-way offers are more expensive due to the drop charges. Therefore, avoid them if it suits your travel plans.
  • Select the appropriate fuel option. Full-to-full is the cheapest fuel option since you only pay for what you consume.
