Car Hire in South Africa

South Africa is a large country and the major cities and areas of interest are fairly spread apart. If you're not part of a planned tour or group, hiring a car is one of the best ways to see the country at your own pace. Bear in mind that it is advisable to hire from a reputable company who are able to offer you new and good quality cars as well as assistance during your rental in the event of a problem. Generally booking via a tour operator will entitle you to lower rental rates and vehicles with unlimited mileage.

Vehicles can also be booked directly through car hire providers although rates are usually slightly higher and work on a pay-per-kilometre basis. The major car hire companies have branches for collection and drop-off at all airports and in all major cities throughout South Africa.


Flying to South Africa

South Africa is a highly sought-after holiday destination, and is easily accessible by airplane from most countries. Most of the large international airlines fly directly to South Africa with Johannesburg International Airport and Cape Town International Airport being the two main airport destinations. Domestic air travel within South Africa is easy and efficient with local airlines flying between all of the major cities on a daily, if not hourly, basis.
