Unfortunately,it will be difficult to net potential clients,a number of people own cars and would rather go visit places using their own personal cars and also we have public service vehicles which are more affordable for transport.
our wish we can help you but mainly many people use there personal cars cause many of them want to be alone in the field without a driver or they can also take public cars which have and they believe it have a high rate of security and cheap that is because it have a fix price according to where the client is going
Hi Joe, please do not give up as yet business is been low all over. At the moment we are in our low season but we hope business to pick up from June, that would be the best time to get business for your fleet. Minivans with top up roofs are the most appropriate and easy to find companies to hire them. Most tour companies now operate with minimal fleet, this cusion them against high maintenance expenses during low season, then they will hire extra vans when business is high. I will recommend some of the companies like Kobo safaris, you could try to contact them and see how and what they will require from you. Thanks
taxi business i'm sure u have realized is a syndicate driven industry but once you are in, you will see good returns...if u are starting off, then keep your pricing lower than the competition and win the business...a parked car costs u....for safaris, take your van for QC to private safaris, akorn...i'm told there is always a huge deficit of tour vans when the charter flights land in malindi...hope this helps ...dont look back, i think this will be a good year for tourism...cheers

Hi Joe
Car hire is a good business though it takes time to establish your customers. You can work hand in hand with those already in the business while you try to get your own customers. You can also introduce commissions to those bringing you business and for a start, you can give discounted rates! What's your price for saloon cars? but just like James says, it is low season at the moment!

Hey,how much do you charge,i can connect you with some of my friends who are working at U N E P.wont mind if they hire some of your cars.But remember you need to be a bit cheap because there is a lot of competition on the business.N/b with business you have to lose and gain,when you incur the lose do not give up ,work out and see where you messed.
