However, for safety reasons Asco Car Hire imposes a speed limit of 80km/h for our vehicles. The cars are equipped with a black box which tracks the speed and location of the cars, and will notify the driver with a loud beep when the speed limit is being broken. Note that if you do exceed the speed limit, your insurance and excess will lapse and become invalid. Please have a look at our insurances page for more information.
Asco Car Hire reserves the right to impose an age limit for the drivers at a minimum of 23 years old.

Asco Car Hire is an official sponsor of the Moreson School. All trees purchased by Asco Car Hire customers are planted and maintained at the Moreson School. The Moreson School is a school for cognitively impaired. The trees that are planted are mainly fruit trees, which the children will take care of. The yield of the fruit trees will complement the diet of the children, but in the future also serve as a source of income, because the fruit is to be processed into jam and juices. The children learn to cook, simple woodwork, but also the making of bricks at the school. The Moreson School program is designed to give children a future in simple occupations. We are very proud to support this special school and we are happy about any support.
In addition to your 4×4 vehicle booking with or without camping equipment, you can add extra items, such as car insurance with better cover or extra equipment, such as a satellite phones, child seats, SIM cards, GPS or a compressor. When traveling with more than one car it can be fun to build in a 27mc transmitter / receiver (two-way-radio) which makes the communication ‘on the go’ more pleasant. All these extras contribute to a great 4×4 self-drive tour without any worries.
All our vehicles are new or very recent and are being maintained to perfection and are subject to a comprehensive service every time before we hand them over to our clients.
Included in our prices are free transfers from the International Airport to Windhoek City (also to your accommodation in Windhoek City) and back.
