All Tibet tourism licensed vehicles have comprehensive insurances including car itself, passengers and drivers. However this is NOT enough.

? Do I have to pay my Tibet rental car in advance?
Yes, we will have to pay all car fee in advance to be able to secure the wanted driver and guide. Tibet is very different from anywhere else in China. Since the local government has complete control on foreign inbound tourism in Tibet, the officials need to know where the foreign ravelers stay, what tour program they have daily, which guide is at service, which car is in service for the related travelers, etc. For travel agency to well manage the booking, we have to confirm the ground tour bookings in advance. So a deposit upon booking and full balance upon arrival in Lhasa is quite normal in Tibet.

When renting a private car traveling anywhere in Tibet, you will need a driver, and a tour guide, and correct Tibet travel permits. Since foreign travelers can not travel independently in Tibet.
