South African Car Hire / Car Rental

South African Car Hire / Car Rental

One of the best ways to explore South Africa is with the freedom of your own self drive rental car.  With a vast network of well maintained roads, internationally sign posted, and with large petrol port centres conveniently located on all major roads, South Africa lends itself towards the self drive holiday.  Travel with the freedom of your own car hire at your own pace, stopping where you wish to stop and seeing things that are of interest to you.   With few traffic jams on the open country roads and a speed limit of 120kph makes driving a real pleasure.  Save time book car hire directly online

Some important driving points to bear in mind :-

All drivers must have a valid driving license, which displays his/her photograph upon it, or carry your passport with you as positive identification to verify you as the legal holder of the driver’s license.  Your driver’s license must be printed in English so a local traffic officer can establish which class of vehicle you are qualified to drive. If not, an International license should be purchased before arrival.  The onus is on the driver to prove that he or she is qualified to drive such a vehicle.  You MUST carry your driving license on your person at all times while driving in South Africa.  For returning South Africans the old green ID drivers license document is no longer valid & therefore not acceptable. Please obtain an International drivers license before arrival.

For Car Hire the driver must have a valid credit card – a passenger’s credit card is not acceptable.
