Top tips for renting a car in Chad

  • Renting a car in Chad is to your advantage because there are no train services in the country. The main way of getting around Chad is by minibus, and while these can work, they operate on fixed schedules and may take longer than self-driving as they make several stops along the way. Renting a car in Chad is the best way to explore the country on your own time and at your own convenience.
  • If you will be driving around Chad, it’s important to know that many of the roads are in poor condition and can be dangerous. Even in the capital city of N’Djamena, only the main roads are paved. As a result, it’s a good idea to rent a car with four-wheel drive as you will be crossing rough terrain no matter where you drive to in the country.
  • Unlike in many other countries, there are currently no child car seat rules in Chad. However, considering the poor road conditions and any bumps you may encounter, we recommend renting a car seat that is appropriate for the height and weight of your child just to be safe. You can request these at the time of booking.
  • Typically, car rentals in Chad will allow you to cross the border into neighboring countries such as Nigeria, Cameroon, and Central African Republic. However, always double check with your chosen agency in advance, as extra fees and insurance may be required.

  • What is driving like in Chad?

    Driving in Chad can be difficult simply because of the road conditions. Many of the roads, especially outside the capital city, are unpaved, so you need to watch out for hazards, bumps, and holes along the way. You will encounter a lot of dirt and gravel roads. In Chad, you drive on the right side of the road and overtake on the left. Heavy rains can sometimes flood the dirt roads outside the capital, so use caution during severe weather. It’s also worth noting that the roads are not well lit after dark, so avoid driving at night. Police checkpoints are common, so be sure to carry your passport, driver’s license, and vehicle rental contract at all times.

  • How old do you have to be to rent a car in Chad?

    You must be at least 21 years old in order to rent a car in Chad. There are typically no surcharges for those under the age of 25 like there are in many other countries. However, regardless of your nationality and the language of your driver’s license, you will need an International Driver’s Permit (IDP), so be sure to secure one before you travel to Chad and pick up your rental car.

  • How are gas prices in Chad?

    In Chad, you buy gas by the liter. The prices obviously can vary depending on economic conditions, but the prices you will find are typically around 518 XAF per liter (0.85 USD) . This translates to about 1960 XAF per gallon (3.20 USD). When you are at a gas station, it is always recommended to fill your car and carry a tank for extra fuel as you should take precautions by carrying extra fuel with you on the road.

  • What are the speed limits in Chad?

    Speed limits in Chad depending on the type of road and whether you are in a rural or urban setting. You will most likely be driving quite often on urban roads.
