What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get a Harrismith Alamo rental car at a great rate?

Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Harrismith?
You'll need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Harrismith's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Harrismith require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Make sure to review Alamo's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Harrismith?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Harrismith. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little luxury on their Harrismith vacation can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does South Africa require car insurance?
In South Africa you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Alamo. Many of the major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically offer coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Harrismith. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Alamo car rental?
Alamo does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Harrismith. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Alamo car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You should receive your vehicle with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Alamo. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Harrismith?
Harrismith certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Harrismith.
Can I get a one-way rental from Alamo?
Alamo usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different location. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
