No electric car hire in Sierra Leone is available, but you can get great passenger and economy car hires that will be the perfect vehicle for your trip. With many potholes, road surface damage and dirt roads, it is well worth considering 4x4 hire, to help manage the terrain. With your Sierra Leone car hire, you will need to take the weather into consideration too, as the rainy seasons between May and September can leave roads in a condition only passable with a 4x4; another good reason for a 4-wheel drive, making it an all-round perfect vehicle for your Sierra Leone adventure.
