You will need an international driving permit to hire a car in Senegal.
Do check the Foreign & Commonwealth travel advice for Senegal before travelling to understand requirements for driving and travel in the country.
Our car hire centres around Dakar where a good selection of vehicles are available. CDW and Theft waivers are normally included so you simply need to source worldwide car hire excess insurance to cover any excess and excluded items like tyres and windscreens to be fully protected.
Most but not all car hire companies have fair Full to Full fuel policies and unlimited mileages.
Some car hire companies do not allow any cross border travel, others will allow you to drive through the Gambia saving a considerable drive if you wish to reach the southern regions of Ziguinchor, Sédhiou and Kolda. But again, do check the FCO advice if travelling to these regions.
