Fantastic Offers on Car Rentals in South Africa

Driving your car hire in South Africa

Prior to setting off spend some time to familiarise yourself with the car and its controls. This is very important if you normally drive a manual gearbox on the opposite side of the road.

If you plan drive across the border to another country, be careful to check the conditions of rental for additional fees and to let the car hire provider know. If you fail to do so there's the possibility that you will not be insured if you are involved in a situation where the car is damaged or stolen

It might seem daunting at first to hire a car in a foreign country, just relax and you'll soon find yourself acclimatised to the differences. Have a great trip

If you're used to driving on the opposite side of the road be extra careful with roundabouts. Be sure to navigate road circles with an clockwise direction, giving way to vehicles currently on the road circle to your right.

Be extra careful if you're driving outside of the main cities in South Africa to look out for wild animals in the road.

You should always drive in South Africa is on the left hand side of the road
