The Ultimate Guide to Renting a Car with Treepz: Everything You Need to Know

Rent a car

Last month, we announced the relaunch of our consumer app – a convenient car-sharing service that allows you to rent cars listed by private car owners (hosts) across Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, and Uganda. Whether you are travelling for business or leisure, you can book affordable and reliable cars to explore Africa through our reliable Treepz hosts.  

On this blog, I will be sharing with you everything you need to know about renting a car at Treepz, Africa’s largest car-rental marketplace.

Download the Treepz Guest app on Google Play Store for Android users or the App Store for iOS users. (This should take less than 2 minutes at most.)

How does Treepz work?

Once the app is installed on your device, follow the steps to register and verify your account. 


  1. Turn on your location to enable the app to find the closest cars for hire near you. 
  1. Explore our wide range of options from cars to sedans, and SUVs, and choose your preferred cars from the listed options depending on your mobility needs. 
  1. Select your preferred pickup and drop-off date or the duration you will need the car. 
  1. Select your hire mode: If you would love to put your feet up while a chauffeur drives you around, the Chauffeured mode is for you. If you prefer to be hands-on and take the wheels, the Self-hire mode is what you need.

P.S.: You can save more time with the “Filter” feature on the app to select the price range, hire mode, and duration you need the car for. This narrows your search results and allows you to find your desired car faster.

  1. You can proceed to book the car(s): Reserve the car and proceed with payment after the host accept your booking, or you can bargain the original price for your desired car to find a price that works for you and the host. When bargaining, input the price you want and if the host accepts your price, the bargain is successful and you can complete the booking process. 
  2. Payment options: We have three payment options that guests can choose from when paying for their reservations
  • Card Payment – Allows guests to pay directly from their card through
  • Wallet Payment – Allows guests to pay for their booking with their wallet balance
  • Mobile Payment – Allow guests to pay using their mobile money.
  1. Your car is ready for pick-up at the most convenient pickup location near you once payment is confirmed. 
  2. Cancellations: Guests can cancel their reservation for free up to 24 hours before the pickup time. Reservations cancelled within a 24hr time frame might be subjected to penalty surcharge
