KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Maputo

  • Maputo is a vibrant city with various attractions, and having a car can make it easier to access different parts of the city. You can conveniently visit popular places like the Maputo Central Market, the Maputo Railway Station, the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, and other cultural and historical landmarks. Maputo is also a gateway to some beautiful destinations in Mozambique. With a hire car, you can embark on day trips to nearby attractions such as the stunning beaches of Ponta do Ouro or Inhaca Island.
  • Maputo International Airport (MPM) is located around 6 km away from the centre of Maputo. Avis is one of the Maputo car hire companies that has an onsite counter at the Maputo Airport. Once you've landed, you can proceed to their desk at the airport to complete the paperwork to start using your car hire in Maputo. While booking through KAYAK, you can choose from multiple options that include pick-up trucks, passenger vans and SUVs.
  • Police checkpoints are common in Maputo, where officers may conduct routine inspections or verify documents. While these checkpoints aim to ensure safety and enforce regulations, they can slow down your journey and require cooperation and patience. While driving your car hire in Maputo, it is important to make sure that you have all the essential documents such as your passport, driving licence, International Driving Permit (IDP), vehicle registration papers and third-party insurance.
  • Maputo has a significant number of pedestrians and informal modes of transportation, such as bicycles, tuk-tuks, and informal minivans known as chapas. These vehicles often operate erratically and may disregard traffic rules, requiring extra caution and alertness from drivers. In addition, some roads in Maputo may have potholes, uneven surfaces or inadequate lighting. Exercise caution and maintain a moderate speed, especially at night or in poorly lit areas. Be prepared for sudden changes in road conditions and watch out for pedestrians, cyclists and animals on the road.

Car hire insurance in Maputo

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Maputo car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend being aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Maputo.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a non-deductible option to your Maputo car hire.
