Top tips for hiring a car in Zimbabwe

  • If you hire a car in Zimbabwe, you can enjoy enhanced freedom and flexibility with your journey, as you can travel direct to your destination. You’ll also be able to depart and arrive at a time of your choosing, which isn’t the case with public transport timetables. In a hire car, you can explore the picturesque surroundings and harder-to-reach destinations, which can prove difficult in other modes of transport. Another benefit of a hire car is that you can carry your luggage with you, easily, in the boot of the car.
  • When travelling with kids in Zimbabwe, you must ensure that your children are secure in the vehicle before you set off. Even though there isn’t a requirement in Zimbabwe for children to be in booster seats for the journey, it’s highly recommended that you use one. You can speak to your car hire agency prior to your booking, to see if they can provide you with a child seat. It’s advised that, if your child is under 12 years of age of less than 135 cm in height, they should be in an adequate restraint.
  • If you plan to cross the border in your Zimbabwe hire car, you must be aware that all borders are manned. Therefore, you must have permission from your Zimbabwe car hire provider to be able to travel to another country. Not all agencies will permit this, and it’s unlikely you’ll be able to cross without a written agreement. If you try to cross without permission, your insurance policy will automatically be void. Once you have received permission to cross the border, you’ll need to ensure you have visas and passports at the ready.
  • Drink-driving is taken seriously in Zimbabwe, and you’ll risk serious prosecution if you are caught over the limit. For example, the maximum blood alcohol content you can have in your system is 0.08%. If the police breathalyse you and you are above this, they can fine you, ban you from driving, and potentially even imprison you.

  • What is driving like in Zimbabwe?

    Driving in Zimbabwe is quite different from the UK, even though they drive on the left-hand side of the road. Driving in Zimbabwe is very hazardous, especially when the sun goes down. Speeding is common in the country, so you must drive with confidence and be aware of your surroundings. The roads in Zimbabwe are also not well-kept, with there being lots of potholes, so you must drive vigilantly. There will also be a lot of livestock on the roads, so keep an eye out for this.

  • How old do you have to be to rent a car in Zimbabwe?

    In general, to hire a car in Zimbabwe, you need to be at least 21 years old. However, the minimum age requirement varies from agency to agency. If you are younger than 25, you will also probably be subject to a young person’s surcharge. There also tends to be age restrictions on certain vehicle categories too. You should check with your car hire agency to find out its policy on age restrictions.

  • How are petrol prices in Zimbabwe?

    Petrol prices in Zimbabwe are around $1.57 (£1.20) per litre and about $5.94 (£4.65) per gallon. You should be aware that these prices will vary depending on a variety of factors, including taxes, oil prices, and local competition. Most of the petrol stations in Zimbabwe tend to be in and around the major cities, so you should ensure you fill up prior to heading into the countryside.

  • What are the speed limits in Zimbabwe?

    The speed limits in Zimbabwe depend on the type of road that you’re on. For example, in towns and cities, the top speed you can do is 60 km/h (37mph). On rural roads and motorways, you can drive at 120 km/h (75 mph). There are lots of mobile speed cameras, and if one of these flashes you, then your Zimbabwe car hire company will fine you and pass your details over to the police.
