Tips for renting cars

1. Plan ahead. It's simple, but so many people struggle to find the vehicle that they want or they pay much more than necessary if they try to hire last minute. The ideal would be 2 to 3 months before the rental period. If you're in a pickle, ask us to help you. There might be a route you haven't tried.

2. Major car hire companies have pick-up and drop-off branches in locations throughout the city, but it's often cheaper and better availability if you rent from the airport, as there are a lot of car rental branches for your convenience.

3. Read through the terms and conditions when making a booking. Car hire companies' policies differ and you want to make sure you know what you're in for.

4. E-mail us a review of your car rental and you could use it to cash in on vouchers for flights, cruises or car hire booked through South Africa Travel Online! See how you can earn travel vouchers here.
