We offer car rental from Quatro de Fevereiro International Airport, the main international airport of Angola. It is situated just south of Luanda the capital of Angola.
The major car hire brands are based at the airport and include recognizable names such as Avis, Hertz, Sixt, Europcar and Budget but local brands can also be found.
Be aware that it is commonplace for car rental firms to exclude collision damage waiver and theft protection - it is highly recommended that you run a quotation for an independent policy covering these items on the MoneyMaxim car hire insurance service, as this is likely to be significantly cheaper than buying this protection at the desk. Without these insurances you could be liable for a large bill if you were to have an accident.
Even where it is included, excesses can be high - often around £1,500 to £2,000, and, again, the MoneyMaxim service can be utilised to find low cost car hire excess insurance for Luanda.
Read the FCO travel advice, particularly if you have any thoughts about travelling outside Luanda itself as journeys in many areas are considered dangerous.
You will need a full driving licence valid in your country of residence and be aware that an International Driving Permit is compulsory for holders of driving licenses which do not incorporate a photograph (they are also recommended for photocard licence holders). For more details see the AA website.
