Driving a Car in Namibia

Vehicles are NOT permitted into Angola and Zambia.

4 Days advance notification is required for travel into Zimbabwe. A letter of authorization must be requested at the time of reservation for all cross border traveling.

The supplier will not be held responsible if a renter is refused entry into another country.

All foreign registered vehicles entering Namibia will have to pay a Cross Border Charge. A certificate will be issued by the Namibian Authority and must be kept in the glove compartment of the vehicle. The renter is responsible for the payment of the Cross Border Charge.

Should a renter commence with a rental in Namibia and cross the border to South Africa and an accident/theft occurs - the original Namibian excess still applies.

A valid unendorsed licence is required. Drivers must have their licence for at least 2 years prior renting a vehicle.
