There is no better way to see everything Johannesburg has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your Hertz rental car. Don't waste time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. When you have the keys to your own ride, you can go anywhere you want to go, whenever you want. Make your next trip to South Africa even better with a Hertz car rental.
With all there is to do and see in and around the Johannesburg region, you'll want to explore more than the area surrounding your hotel while on your visit. Whether you have to have dinner at that latest bistro across town or see some of the local favorites, you'll need your own vehicle to explore as much as possible while on your trip. Whatever you end up doing in Johannesburg, if you wish to get the most from your trip to the city, having access to your vehicle is a must.
We work with several of the most dependable car rental businesses in the business. Hertz has over one hundred years of car rental experience and a fleet containing many of the most well-known in the business, like Nissan and Ford. With Hertz history and thousands of distributors worldwide, you know you will be well taken care of.
We try to get you the best price, no matter when you book. However, booking your car well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
You will need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Johannesburg is 18. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to check Hertz's policies to determine if there is an additional cost for you.
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Johannesburg. Compact or economy vehicles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room for luggage and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Johannesburg trip can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
In South Africa you do need to have insurance before you rent from Hertz. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Hertz requires a deposit when you book your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Hertz.
Johannesburg definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Johannesburg.
Hertz usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental car at another Hertz. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
With so much to do and see in Johannesburg, having access to a ride lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to discover more of South Africa, you can drive wherever you want to, without waiting for your ride to pick you up or memorizing a bus schedule.
Before your next vacation, book your Hertz Johannesburg car rental and zip off to take in all the must-do activities at your leisure. Go with CarRentals.com and drive the streets in Johannesburg, South Africa.
