Car rental quotes

Here's the car rental quotes we did recently. Note that prices and availability may changed since we did these quotes.

Car rental in Johannesburg

I'm looking for a long term rental ie 5 months, who has the best prices for long term?

Let's assume you're looking at hiring for 5 months from Johannesburg from  17 February until 16 July 2012.  The best rate I could find was R19,800 (R132/day) for a Chevrolet Spark.  See First Car Rental

Need a small car from 1st March to morning of the 5th March to collect at OR Tambo and delivery at OR Tambo very basic please and do not have a credit card.

The best quote I received is with First Car Rental. The price for all 4 days is R620 (R155 per day). You receive 100 kms free per day and thereafter the price is R1.17 per km.

First Car Rental accepts cheque cards. All vehicle renters must have an embossed cheque card if they are not travelling on a company account. This enables a holding deposit by car rental companies in the event of any loss or damage to the vehicle. Cheque cards can only be charged at the rental kiosk. Once the vehicle is returned, without damage, the cheque card is refunded within 21 days, less the invoice amount. 

Please help me with airfares and cheap car hire for a trip from Durban to Johannesburg on Friday 17th February (any time) and return Monday 20th February (anytime).

Cheapest return flights for the 2 of you are R1498 with Mango, see http://goo.gl/CHCo0. The cheapest car hire is R540 (R180/day) for a Chev Spark, with First Car Rental

21st -25th March 2012  unlimited kms as we are travelling down to Mpumalanga from Johannesberg. Definetly airconditioner.   We are only 2 people.

Assuming that you will be returning the vehicle back to Johannesburg, the best quote for car hire with unlimited mileage was for R 944 from  First Car Rental

Algoa Bay B&B - Port Elizabeth

Mossel Bay Tourism is launching a Responsible Tourism Register this week (in other Mossel Bay news, we'll be visiting the Point Hotel). Marcia Holm of Mossel Bay Tourism says that . “Many local companies are already deeply committed to responsible tourism, and Responsible Tourism Week gives us an ideal opportunity to showcase these initiatives at a time when the world’s attention is focused on the issue."

From 9 July 2012 Emirates will be flying to Lisbon, Portugal.

The Limpopo Province is considering converting Hoedspruit Airport into an international airport. At the moment there are regular flights between Johannesburg & Hoedspruit, from where one can stay at world class lodges like Simbavati.

The Purple shall rule! "We flew from Lanseria to Cape Town using Kulula on 8th February, check in went well, as we were three travellers our 3 bags, which included two sets of golf clubs in one bag, were weighed together and came to under 60kg. On our way back from Cape Town to Lanseria yesterday they insisted on weighing our bags separately, 2 x 10kg and the golf clubs 28 kg, we were charged R250 for extra baggage, NOT FAIR KULULA!! Airlines should be consistent with their service and compassionate! In future Kulula will NOT be our number one airline to use!"
