South African Car Hire

South Africa Car Hire Information

General Info
South Africa is a large country that offers attractions like Cape Town in the southwest, Durban on the East coast and Johannesburg and Pretoria in the north. Take a scenic drive from Cape Town, along the world famous "Garden Route" passing small towns like Swellendam, Mosselbay, George, Knysna and Plettenbergbay on route to Port Elizabeth in South Africa. A good rule of thumb is make sure your fuel tank is full when you leave a major city. Once you are out of town, you can drive a great distance without seeing a petrol station. 

>> Requirements
To rent a car, you must be at least 21 years old (age may vary by car category) and have held your licence for one year. Drivers under the age of 25 may incur a young driver surcharge. Seatbelts are mandatory. 

>> Speed Limits
Speed limits in South Africa are as follows: City 37mph/60kph, Highway 74 mph / 120kph. 

>> Rules of the Road
Traffic travels on the left in South Africa and there are very heavy fines enforced on the spot for speeding. Blood alcohol limits apply. 

>> Fuel
Most fuel stations are open 7 days a week from 7am to 7pm with some stations open 24 hours. 

>> Tolls
There are a few toll highways in South Africa. Cost of all toll roads vary, but alternative routes are always available. 

>> Parking
Parking can be a problem in the major cities in South Africa. Parking garages are an excellent idea if you can find one with space available. 

>> Insurance
Car rental insurance varies widely, so please review the information below prior to making your reservation. Regulations of the country where you rent the car will be in effect for the duration of your rental. All our car rental rates include Collision Damage Waiver and Theft Loss Waiver. Specific insurance information for your reservation will be printed on your confirmation voucher. Personal Accident and Public Liability Insurance is included in some of our rates or it can be obtained at an additional rate with certain car hire companies. 

>> Restrictions
Most car categories can be driven anywhere in Southern Africa without restriction. Due to insurance regulations, there are restrictions on luxury car categories and on travel in certain neighbouring countries. Please take a minute to ensure that your intended itinerary will be possible with the car you plan to rent. For further details please contact our reservations office.
