Rentacar Gambia focuses on the 2 biggest car rental needs in The Gambia
- Budget transport in the coastal (tourist) area: Fiat Cinquecento.
- Reliable 7-seater four wheel drives for going inland: Nissan Terrano II and Ford Maverick.
(Nissan and Ford produced these identical cars as a joined venture, in fact the Maverick is 100% Nissan with just a Ford badge on it.)
All our cars have petrol engines because that’s more reliable. The quality of the Gambian fuel is so poor that all diesels, sooner or later, get serious fuel injection trouble. Petrol engines are less vulnerable and cope better with this.
In terms of fuel economy you are much better of with a fuel efficient petrol engine than a diesel engine in a poor condition.
We have deliberately choosen for car models from the late 90’s because they have a good balance between comfort, quality and simplicity.
