We strive to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your car. But reserving ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Umtata?
You'll need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Umtata?
Most suppliers in Umtata set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Alamo's policy to determine what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Umtata?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Umtata. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their trip can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in South Africa?
In South Africa you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Alamo. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Alamo require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Alamo does require a deposit when you book your rental. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Umtata. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Alamo?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You pick up your Alamo rental 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 bring your car back to Alamo.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Umtata?
Umtata certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
