Picking up your Johannesburg South Africa Car rental without a credit card and other ways to pay.

Pay with Visa, Mastercard or an American Express credit card or a debit card provided by your bank or credit card company when renting a car on our website.

Quite often, car rentals that come with our Premium Cover option will enable you to use a debit card when you pick up the car without any additional fees. You can compare if a debit card is allowed, along with the different car hire security deposit and insurance options on the second step of our website booking process.

Many of the Johannesburg South Africa car rental brands we include accept a debit card when you arrive at the collection desk to pick up the car; but often these do have different conditions related to them. Be sure that you understand the T&Cs if you want to use a debit card at the desk when collecting the car.

It's worth bearing in mind that quite often car hire companies that do allow debit card at the desk are more expensive than those that accept credit card only.

Would you like us to accept payments using something other than credit card or debit card? Please contact us to let us know. We are always open to new ideas regarding how to enhance our service and make arranging your car rental as Stress Free as it can be.

We've made it really easy on our website to identify which car hire brands will accept a debit card. Simply use the filters on the second page to compare the car rental brands will accept your card type at the collection desk.

If you've chosen Basic or Essential Cover for your car rental, it often means that you'll need to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver when you collect the car. You will usually be given the option to pay for a top up policy by the rental partner at the collection desk, which then allows you to use a debit card in the name of the lead driver.

We accept a huge range of currencies including Euros (EUR), British Pounds (GBP), US Dollars (USD) and Australian Dollars (AUD).

Refuelling your Rental near Johannesburg

The cars included on our website include a full to full fuel policy. To avoid additional charges for fuel remember to top up the tank before you return the vehicle.

Driving tips for your car hire in South Africa Johannesburg

Before you start your journey spend some time to get used to the vehicle and its controls. This is especially important if you're used to driving a manual transmission on the opposite side of the road.

When driving on the opposite side than you're used to be careful with road circles. Always navigate traffic circles in a clockwise direction, giving way to traffic already on the road circle to your right.

Hassle free Essential insurance options

Along with being friendly, easy to use and of course, stress free, we also offer two additional levels of insurance when you book a car with us.

Essential Cover comes with key cover, flushing the engine after misfuelling, damage caused to the vehicle, theft, weather and fire and more.

Essential cover doesn't cover things like loss of theft/damage to content in the car, third party injury mechanical repairs, cleaning fees. To view the detailed information see the terms and conditions on the extras page

Essential cover appears as an optional extra in the car hire insurance section. For some geographical/partner car rental combinations the cover isn't always offered.

Essential cover, offered at the same time as you make your car hire booking, is a car hire excess reimbursement policy which covers you on a wide-range of additional charges that standard insurance doesn't.

Renting a Car in Johannesburg without an Excess

Hiring a Car in Johannesburg without an Insurance Excess

The car will already be covered for theft and accidents included in the rental fee you will see the website. This insurance is often referred to as Collision Damage Waiver (CDW).

All of our rental cars in Johannesburg include collision damage waiver in the price , there is also often an insurance excess, which is held on your credit card on collection. The excess is the amount you'd be liable to pay if the car is written off, severely damaged or stolen. However, the excess on hire cars can be very high. It's normally between £1,000 to £3,000. If you return the car damaged, or it's stolen or written off, you will have to pay some or all of the excess.

When you arrive to collect the vehicle, the insurance excess is held on your credit card as something called a 'pre authorised' transaction. Pre Auth means that the money isn't taken from your credit card as a regular payment, it's held as a pending transaction until you return the car. You won't usually pay currency charges on credit cards for pre authorised payments. As long as the rental car is dropped off in the same condition as when it was collected, this amount will be fully refunded to your credit card without anything additional to pay.

If you're paying by debit card, the insurance excess is taken from your bank account and refunded when the car is dropped off. If you intend to use a debit card on collection, as the excess is often high, it's recommended to buy Premium Cover on our website or to pay for top up cover at the collection desk.

To view car hire options in Johannesburg with a £0 or reduced excess take a look at our Premium Cover rental options.

You do not have to stay within the daily limit on every day, as long as the total miles used during the rental doesn't exceed the number of days multiplied by the daily limit.

When you opt for a limited mileage rental, it's receommended to check the costs for excess mileage. These can be found in our term and conditions section. It's also possible to use the filters on our website to find hire cars including unlimited mileage which can save you money if you're planning a longer journey
