How can I get a cheap car rental in Gauteng?
Here are our recommendations on how to hit the road with some extra cash in your pocket:

  • A car can take you wherever you want — so can we. Compare the hottest deals from the top companies in town in a couple of clicks.
  • Arrange an email Price Drop Alert for your next exciting vacation destination. You never know what awesome deals will hightail it into your inbox;
  • Research is the key to getting the best rental deals in town, so be sure to check out both airport and non-airport pickup and drop-off outlets before you shell out for your ride;
  • If you have some elbow room in your schedule, adjust your dates to find better prices on different days of the week;
  • Pickup and drop-off times typically need to be similar (e.g, both 9 a.m.) or you might be charged for an entire extra day;
  • Oftentimes companies reward you handsomely for prepaying — keep your eyes peeled for these kinds of deals;
  • It’s best to make a reservation as soon as your dates are confirmed. You’ll have the largest range to choose from the earlier you book.

What is the most popular rental car category in Gauteng?
Minis are the smallest car available for rent, and typically, they’re the most inexpensive to run too. This is one of the reasons they’re such a favorite with visitors to Gauteng. Zip around the sights of Johannesburg and Pretoria — you won’t believe the parking spots you can fit into. Despite their small size, minis offer a comfy ride (just so long as you don’t have too much luggage!).From desert landscapes to savannahs and tablelands, Gauteng features some picturesque views. Why not hit the highway and discover one or more of them? Escape town and organize some fun excursions. A full-size SUV is ideal for those longer rides. Designed to deal with all types of roads, these bigger vehicles make it a delight to get off the beaten path.
Should I get a luxury rental car in Gauteng?
You’ll be glad to hear that there’s a huge range of both high-end and economy rentals in Gauteng. What you end up going for is largely dependent on your funds and the activities you’ve got planned. Prestige vehicles are hard to beat if you’re all about mod cons and comfort. If you’re splashing out, why not go for an SUV with all the bells and whistles, or perhaps a slick mid-sized vehicle? On the other hand, if you’re just after something to get you from A to B at the cheapest price possible, you’re better off going with a no-frills compact vehicle (or something else that won’t blow your budget).
What side of the road do they drive on in Gauteng?
The left side of the road is where you’ll be cruising along in Gauteng. The controls of your rental vehicle here, such as the steering wheel and stick shift (if your car has manual transmission), will be on the other side of what you’re used to.
What happens if I get a speeding fine while driving a rental car in South Africa?
Normally, your rental company will bill the fined amount to your credit card. Alternatively, the company may share your contact information with the relevant local agency so they can send a fine to you directly.
