The point of pick up depends on your location. You can come to our office or we can instruct our driver to bring the car to your lodge or hotel, the airport or any particular location. It is important to let us know where you will be lodging and the exact time you need the car so that we make a timely delivery. If you need the car right from the airport, our company Driver will wait for you at the airport 30 minutes before the arrival of your flight. You need to share with us your time of arrival and other flight details. If there are any changes to your arrival time or hotel bookings, let us know that too.

What about the fuel? We will deliver the car with some fuel in it. There are no costs for fueling the car during delivery within Kampala city or Entebbe town. We will charge a cost for delivering the car in districts and towns outside Kampala or Entebbe. The amount charged will depend on the distance to be covered.
