Top tips for renting a car in Angola

  • Angola car rentals allow you to create your own itinerary and travel according to your preferred schedule. Public transportation in Angola, especially in more rural or remote areas, may be limited or unreliable. By renting a car, you can reach destinations not well-served by public transportation. This is particularly beneficial if you plan to explore natural attractions, national parks, or off-the-beaten-path locations. Some well-suited attractions for exploration by rental car include Kalandula Falls, Namibe Desert, Kissama National Park, Ilha do Mussulo, Tundavala Fissure, and Iona National Park.
  • While major roads in urban areas and between major cities are generally in decent condition, many secondary and rural roads in Angola may be poorly maintained, with potholes, uneven surfaces, or gravel sections. It's advisable to have a rental car suitable for such conditions, preferably a vehicle with higher ground clearance or a 4x4 if you plan to explore remote areas. Luanda, the capital city, can experience heavy traffic congestion, especially during peak hours. Be prepared for slower traffic and potential delays, particularly in urban areas.
  • While driving in Angola might be fun and adventurous for non-locals, having a reliable GPS navigation system might be helpful. In addition, a GPS navigation system and mobile network coverage may be limited in some areas of Angola, particularly in remote regions. It's a good idea to have offline or physical maps as a backup and inform someone about your travel plans if you're going to remote areas with limited communication. Still, you can hire a driver who is more familiar with the roads.
  • Angola does not have specific regulations or laws regarding the use of car seats for children in private vehicles, including for travel to and from airports. However, it is always recommended to prioritize the safety of children while traveling in vehicles. Parents and caregivers should use appropriate car seats based on the child’s age, height, and weight. This practice aligns with international safety standards and promotes the well-being of children while traveling.
  • Book your rental car in Angola at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Angola are around 54% cheaper than other car types, on average
