Rent a car - latest quotes

Here's the car rental quotes we did over the last week. Note that prices and availability could well have changed since we did these quotes.

Rent a car in East London

I'm after an auto car pick up from EL airport on the 14th of Feb and drop off at CT airport on the 8th of March? Would like unlimited mileage, as well as an engine that is around 1.8 if possible :-)

The cheapest unlimited mileage quote I managed to find for you was for a Nissan Tiida for R 10,235. It has aircon, power steering automatic transmission and unlimited mileage (note that you may not need the unlimited mileage, as on a limited mileage package you'll get 2400km free over 24 days).

Rent a car in Nelspruit

Not often we get requests for car hire in Nelspruit.

We need a vehicle for 3 adults and 2 children in Nelspruit from the 24th March and returning the following Saturday.

This is going to depend on how much luggage you’ve got, and how big you guys are. The smallest car I think you’ll get away with is the Volkswagen Polo, but that’s only if you have minimal luggage & are small people. The VW Polo is going for R1449. More realistically, I would suggest going for a Renault Megane, for R1973. See Car Trawler

First Car Rental in Johannesburg, O.R. Tambo International Airport


Hilton Durban from R828/night

Visitors to the UK, be warned that icy conditions are likely, and there's snow in much of Europe.

Adrenalin junkies will be pleased to know that bungee jumping at Victoria Falls has resumed (this follows an incident where the bungee cord broke, leaving an Australian jumper having to swim for safety after falling into the river below).

Despite South Africa's strong ties with the UAE, we are not included in the (long) list of countries whose citizens don't require a visa (hint, hint, Minister of Foreign Affairs).

To soothe the pain, Etihad Airways is offering a complimentary 96-hour tourist visa to guests who book at the Radisson Blu Yas Island. Took accommodation & apply for the visa navigate to etihad.com/freeuaevisa . If you book a 3-night stay you also get a complimentary Abu Dhabi City Tour.

As a Capetonian, I'm still feeling gutted that Etihad stopped CPT - Abu Dhabi flights on the 24th Jan 2012.

From 6 Feb 2012, Edelweiss Airline, which operates seasonal flights between Zurich & CPT, is converting its Monday flights to CPT to night flights. The seasonal flights to Cape Town end at the begining of May 2012.

The Purple shall rule! In yesterday's BA April 2012 flights newsletter, Ruan mentioned why he doesn't like Turkish Airlines. Here's a reply: "I do not agree with Ruan. We flew with Turkish Airlines before and cannot complain about the service. There are other airlines that are worse. You just fly with them once. We have used all different airlines and you know who is good and who is not. SAA service is also not good but it also depends on the country you fly to for instance to Brazil. We also do not use them for international and domestic. All airlines have the good and bad. The best service and airlines are the airlines flying to the Far East." Ben
