Car rental insurance in Nairobi

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Nairobi car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Nairobi.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Nairobi car rental.

10.0 ExcellentJan 17 2017
67 USD per day and had to deposit cash $2000 USDPros: Staff were slow. It took one hour to process my rental. I was pleased to getting my 2000 USD cash depisit as soon as I returned their vehicle. Their fleet is new and fully insured, but body scratches due to nengligence are paid out of pocket.

6.0 GoodSep 2 2019
Pros: Great staff. Car was readyCons: Smelled like smoke. $60/ day (including VAT) for a definitively used car seems expensive. South Africa rates are more in line with value for money.
