Trusted partners

In order to provide you with the best booking and travel experience, it is essential that we work with the right partners. 

We rely on information from various sources including online reviews, direct customer feedback and experiences, the terms and conditions and insurance options, to ensure the quality of the car hire companies is of the best standard. 

On each company page, you will find a summary of reviews and ratings from Google, Trustpilot and TripAdvisor. You will also see a summary of the payment terms, and the cancellation policy, as well as whether the company is a member of CARAN (Car Rental Association of Namibia) and the Namibia Tourism Board.

Our goal is to make the booking process as easy and transparent as possible, allowing you to compare different offers and make an informed decision when booking your rental vehicle. 

More choice

Instead of spending hours searching for the right company and vehicle, trying to compare information in different formats and sifting through various emails threads, we want to offer you a place to find and compare the best 4×4 rental offers.

While we are still a young company, we are continuously growing the number of car hire companies and rental vehicle options. You can easily filter and compare different offers on our page and requests to book your preferred option.

In case the requested vehicle is not available, we will reach out to other companies to find a similar vehicle with the aim to provide you with the best offer. This way you may come across new companies or vehicles with better options or pricing that you did not know or would not have found using an online search.

Easier payments

Most car rental companies offer the option to pay via forex bank transfer or using a payment link from a local bank. Both options require currency conversions and include payment or currency conversion fees which have to be paid by the customer.

When booking on Arid you can pay in your local currency and do not pay any banking fees.

Some car hire companies require a payment to confirm your booking or an advance payment before the rental start date. In this case we provide you with a secure payment link from our payment processor Stripe. The remainder of the fee, as well as any insurance fees or additional equipment can be paid on-site when collecting your vehicle.

No booking fees

As a customer you do not pay any fees for requesting an offer or when booking your vehicle. 

Arid acts as an agent and thus receives special rates from the car rental companies. Our revenue is earned through a commission which only becomes due for completed bookings. 

This way we can always offer you the best possible rates without charging additional fees.
