Theft Protection Insurance (TPI)
When you hire a car from us you will not need to pay for the car if the car is stolen. Your liability is limited to the insurance excess surcharge which in most cases is 10% of the value of the car. For complete peace of mind you can purchase a non-refundable excess insurance when hiring a car.
Collision Damage Waiver (CDW)
We agree to waive the costs of damage to the rental vehicle if it is involved in a collision. However you will be liable for the first part of any claim not exceeding 10% of the cost of the car. For claims that exceed 10% of the value of the car, your liability is limited to the applicable insurance excess surcharge. Please note that CDW does not cover damage to the tyres, wheels, undercarriage, roof and windscreen of the car.
Loss Damage Waiver (LDW)
LDW refers to CDW and Theft Protection Insurance (TPI) collectively. It covers the costs of replacing the car if it is stolen and repairing the car if it is damaged. The insurance excess surcharge on Theft is the same or higher than the insurance excess surcharge for damage. LDW combines both.
Excess Liability Waiver
When hiring a car from us we request that you either choose to accept the liability of paying excess in the event of eventual loss or damage to the car alternatively you can purchase excess insurance with your car rental.
In order to satisfy insurance regulations that guide the car hire business in Kenya, we charge a very reasonable excess deposit. This deposit is refundable 24 hours before pick up date and after deduction of transaction costs as indicated in the car hire contract. If you are wary about paying an Excess Deposit please talk to us.

If you want to hire a car with a driver (chauffeur) we charge KSh. 1,000 (US$ 10) per day within Nairobi or Mombasa, between 06:00 hrs to 19:00hrs. This includes meals. Overtime charges are applicable at US$ 10 for the next 5 hours until midnight. All other locations in Kenya are charged at KSh. 1,500 (US $ 15) per day inclusive of meals and accommodation, between 06:00 hrs to 19:00hrs.
