You must be careful when driving in Rwanda as terrain can change rather quickly. For instance, one moment you’ll be on a road with lane markers, and the next you might be on a cobblestone street without markers. In general, driving in Rwanda is a safe and enjoyable experience. You should keep an eye out for pedestrians and cattle, though. This is because there are few sidewalks, meaning people have to move onto the road, especially in the countryside.
You must be at least 19 years of age to hire a car in Rwanda and also have held your license for at least one year. The license must also be clean with no major incidents on it. Drivers under 25 years of age will most likely need to pay a young driver surcharge as well as be restricted as to the type of vehicle they can rent.
A gallon of gas costs around 5980 RWF (5.60 USD) in Rwanda, with a liter costing around 1580 RWF (1.50 USD). The currency in Rwanda is the Rwandan franc, which is valued at about 1077RWF to the U.S. dollar. Most of the gas stations in the country are close to urban areas, so if you are planning a trip into the countryside, it’s important that you check to see if you have enough gas for your journey.
The speed limits in Rwanda are in kilometers, not miles. In urban areas, the top speed limit is 40 km/h (25 mph). On country roads, the maximum limit is 60 km/h (38 mph). There are many remote speed cameras in Rwanda, and if you are caught, you will be fined by the police. Your car rental agency will then charge you for the fine and pass your information over to the correct authorities.
