How to SKIP THE COUNTER / Office Visit
Rent a Car Rwanda has recently introduced Reduced Contact Car Rental with Advance Check In, which, during reservation, the renter will receive a text or email 2 days before their scheduled pickup to complete a pre-registration process. Once completed, the renter will receive a Rental Pass. The Rental Pass can then be shown along with a Driver’s License to our staff, who quickly collects a signature and then provides access to the rental vehicle. This greatly reduces any time in line and interactions at the office to get the rental car customer on their way.
