    Outstanding experience
    If you are thinking about renting a car, I highly recommend this company. The guys are extremely helpful, and the pickup/drop off process was also extremely simple. And when I forgot money in the car, they were very genuine and assisted me in returning my money. I had a great time on the trip and working with these guys. They are unrivaled.

    Excellent service, affordable car
    I am very satisfied with ZanCars. I booked a car for 8 days, with pickup and drop off in different locations, as well as a separate airport transfer. The guys at ZanCars were very supportive and very communicative, they accomodated all my requests as well as some unforseen changes to my itinerary. They are absolutely fantastic in terms of contact - I would write at different times, even in the evenings, and never had to wait more than a few min for their quick response. They also helped with local driving permit. The car wasn't new, but in good working condition, with airconditioning and automatic transmission, as agreed. We were told in case of road emergency they would come and fix any problems but there were none, luckily. I highly recommend this company.

    Great hire car company
    A reliable and flexible car hire service in Zanzibar. They were great value and really helpful arranging a Zanzibar driving permit and there were no problems with different pick up and drop off locations. I'd happily use them again.

easy and flexible booking (on a short notice), good communication.
we booked the cheapest car for 25usd/day, a really old suzuki escudo.
despite scratching breaks and flashing indicators (breaks, motor, airbags, etc) there was no issue.
it was at the end real fun to drive that crap :)

Awsome experience with the ZanCars guys. We booked our car before we landed in Zanzibar and they welcomed us at the airport and explained every detail of Zanzibar traffic problems. Great company and RAV4 was also great, absolutely no problems with the car.

Good organization, easy to contact on whats app and the car was good. The only problem was that i returned the car 1 day earlier and they didn’t gave my money back. When i returned the car, they said i should have told them 3 days earlier that I was going to deliver earlier, but that was not in the contract and they didn’t tell me when I took the car. When I explained that It was not in the contract, they said there was nothing they could do.

Friendly.
Everything worked perfect. The car was all as agreed and delivered on time at the agreed location.

We rented a car directly through this company and everything worked very well. Meeting at the airport, handing over of the car, car seat for the young one, Tanzania driving license, car return… all went perfectly well. Communication was easy with WhatsApp and after arrival there are guys selling SIM cards directly at the car, if needed.
The car itself was not necessarily European standard but it was clean and robust which is important as we took many dusty side roads. Driving there is easy as people take care of each other.
We can absolutely recommend the company!

That was a pleasure to cooperate with ZanCars , everything went as suppose to. Car was delivered on time. Payment method adaptable, only
fact that card payment is with additional % could have been communicated up front

We had a great and cordial reception by Hamza at the airport. All the papers and documents were ready to drive.
The car was not new but nice. Hamza asked us to take pictures of the car.
Driving in Zanzibar, although the right hand, was fine.
Despite many reviews I read about police man asking for money saying you’re somehow wrong I was stoped 6 times and no one asked money, one asked my breakfast box (hakuna Matata), he was funny.
So, my experience with Zancars and driving in Zanzibar was nice.

I am very happy with the service of ZanCars. They waited for us at the airport, they were 24h available in watsapp, and last day they allowed us to return the car 2 hours later with no extra cost. Also they offered flexibility to extend our booking if necessary. Price was very good and they dealt with our driving permit. Excellent service!
