The Cardboard Box Travel Shop uses several reputable local and international car hire companies to supply our clients with rental vehicles. The overwhelming majority of vehicles are rented from Windhoek or Windhoek International Airport (as those are the main entry points to Namibia) but rentals are also available from other centers around the country including Swakopmund, Luderitz, Walvis Bay & Tsumeb (for those wishing to visit Etosha).
Most places are reachable in a normal sedan vehicle, but the more remote areas, such as Kaokoland and Bushmanland, require four wheel drive vehicles. Generally it is advisable to rent the largest car you can afford as driving on Namibia's gravel roads can be reasonably taxing and the additional stability and ground clearance offered by larger vehicles does make things safer and easier.
If you are driving in the wet season (from Nov - April) heavy rains can make some roads impassible for sedan & smaller vehicles - if you are travelling during this period you should seriously consider renting a 4x4.

When renting a car you will be required to put down an excess deposit (deductible). This is your maximum liability in the event of anything happening to the car while you are hiring it. You will be required to pay for any damage, including tyre and windscreen, that occurs to the rental vehicle up to the excess amount (renting with zero excess negates the need to pay for damages).
The standard procedure for this deposit is as follows: The car hire company will gain an authorisation on your credit card. This is done by contacting the bank, to ensure you have sufficient funds to cover the deposit. A credit card transaction slip will be processed for the deposit amount, you will be required to sign this slip. In the case of the car being returned in good condition the authorisation will be cancelled and the credit card slip destroyed. If damage has been caused to the hire car you will be required to pay for this damage, the maximum extent of your liability will be the excess amount.
NB: If you are deemed to have been driving negligently you can become liable for the full cost of the damages (over & above the excess amount)
One excellent way of covering yourself for all eventualities is to buy independent car hire excess insurance, this can be arranged though a variety of insurance companies and we recommend the policy offered by Worldwide Insurance.
