We surveyed all the car rental agencies in South Africa to see which provided the option of dashcams along with their rental vehicles. We reached out to their Facebook profiles, and here are their responses, in order of receiving - Bluu Car Rental's Facebook team was the fastest to respond, followed by Pace Car Rental (living up to their name!). So if you're tired of yellow and red car hire, maybe it's time to go Bluu!

The only company for which we could not find a Facebook profile was First Car Rental.
