First Car Rental at Johannesburg O.R. Tambo International AirportCar Rental Unlimited Mileage

With car hire you can either purchase an unlimited mileage contract or you can purchase a contract with a fixed amount of free kilometres, following which a fixed cost per kilometre is paid. Unlimited mileage contracts are more expensive, but set one's mind at rest that there wont be that extra unknown charge sneaking in later.

2011-12-19 Looking for an average to small car for two people travelling from Durban down to Cape Town from 11th Feb 2012 to 18 Feb 2012

I assume you're picking the vehicle up in Durban, and dropping it off in Cape Town?  Best price I could find was R1685 for a Chev Spark (R155/day + R600 one-way fee).   However, that only gives 100km free per day (R1.17/km for more than that), so I suggest rather paying R1930 for unlimited mileage.

So we were going on holiday in White River (near Nelspruit) from the 24th July 2009 until the 1st August 2009. We decided to fly from Cape Town to Johannesburg and hire a car, as it's cheaper than flying directly from Cape Town to Nelspruit (Airlink charges monopoly prices on the route). The question is who's offering the cheapest car rental deal (preferably with unlimited mileage) from Johannesburg O.R. Tambo International Airport.

First Car Rental is cheapest

First Car Rental are by far the cheapest, both for unlimited mileage and limited mileage deals (they're also cheapest for an additional driver), so it's a no brainer to book with them (book at First Car Rental).

Budget & Europcar do not offer unlimited mileage deals. Hertz claim to offer an unlimited mileage option on the website, but I couldn't find it. Avis Car Hire only offers unlimited mileage deals to international visitors. It cannot go without saying that the people manning the Hertz & Woodford Car Rental phones when I phoned, were not as competent as those from the other car rental agencies.
