Car Hire in South Africa - Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban

Welcome to “South Africa Car Hire”, where we provide online car rental quotes from the best car hire companies in South Africa.  Our main business is from Johannesburg and Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth; however, other popular places include the Eastern Cape, Mpumalanga and the Free State.  There are very few places in South Africa that have a car hire company that we cannot provide a quote.

The booking engine that we have on our site is easy to use, and will give you several selections of vehicles to hire in the area, and at the specified date and time that you require the car.  Simply indicate where you require the vehicle – most of our clients pick up from the airport.  The largest airports being OR Tambo International in Johannesburg and Cape Town International both have 24 hour pickup facilities.  Once you have done that, you will need to specify the start and end date of the rental.  The price of the car hire will generally be lower on a daily basis for a longer car hire period.  Enter your age, and select what type of vehicle range you would like to be quoted on.  We would suggest that you select “show all” and you can scroll through the options that would best suit you.  You can also change the currency that you will receive the quote in.  The engine does require your country of residence, as there are certain laws that are applicable from different countries.

There is no one-price for your car hire.  Factors that change the pricing include:

-          Type of vehicle

-          Amount of time that you require the rental

-          Mileage requirements

-          Insurance options

-          Time of year that you are hiring the vehicle

-          Any additional costs such as delivery, GPS and baby seats

-          Different specials from the companies
