Namibia: which car rental company ?

Jump to last reply

we will be in Namibia in June for 15 days. We have 2 kids and what is still left is the choice of the car. We opted for a sedan car, manual transmission. I checked some rental companies on the web but the car groups are a bit confusing. Some companies have the same car model in different groups and the only differentiation for the rate is the engine power, like Toyota Corolla 1.3 or 1.6 or 1.8 that you can find in groups A, B and C, but the car model/size is the same. Some other companies have different rates just for the manual or automatic transmission on the same car model.
Our priority is the room for suitcases and not the engine power or the automatic transmission.

Which car would you suggest for us ?
Toyota Corolla or Nissan Almera ?

As regards rental companies the most attractive for rates in june (low season) seems to be Asco car hire. They offer Toyota Condor, larger than Corolla and Almera, for about N$ 335/day plus optional coverage fee N$ 125/day for zero excess for a total of about N$ 460.00/day.

What do you think ? Do you have experience with this company or would you suggest something else ?
