Avis cheapest in a year

car rental survey
19 Jan 2009

[Note that since this article was written, Imperial Car Rental rebranded as Europcar on 1 Jun 2009]

Avis are offering the cheapest car rentals we've seen in the last year (and in fact since we started surveying the car hire market - we've been surveying car rentals in Durban since 2 Feb 2008). They're offering a group A vehicle (VW Chico or similar) for a weekend for R321. Now, whilst this particular survey was for rentals from Durban International Airport, it was also a record cheap price that we've see in Durban, Cape Town or Johannesburg.

Johannesburg to Cape Town on 1 tank of petrol

Stan aimed to drive his Toyota Prius from Johannesburg to Cape Town on a single tank of petrol, which would require a fuel efficiency of 3.8l/100km (i.e. even better than my Toyota Yaris Spirit, which sips 5l of petrol per 100km). The Prius averaged 3.9l/100km, with getting out of Johannesburg costing 5l/100km and a cold morning start in Bloemfontein also being heavy on fuel. In fuel and tolls its cost Stan R642 to get from Johannesburg to Cape Town, which is a bit more than what a 1time flight cost on their recent specials (R389).
