Where can I find an Africa car rental if I am younger than 25?
This will depend on the car rental companies located in Africa. They often have different age policies. If you’ve found an outlet that does cater to drivers under the age of 25, take note that additional fees may apply. Do some research into what those charges could be before booking your rental.
