What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get a Parktown Avis rental car at a great price?
We try to get you the lowest price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But booking ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What do I need to bring when I pick up my rental car in Parktown?
Be sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Parktown's minimum age to rent a car?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Parktown is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Avis's policies to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Parktown?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Parktown. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi 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. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Avis require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Avis does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Parktown. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Avis rental with a full tank?
We suggest a full tank policy. You should receive your car with a full tank. But, if you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Avis. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Parktown?
Parktown certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Parktown Avis offer one-way car rentals?
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at another Avis. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
