What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get the best deals on a Cape Town Hertz car rental?
We try to get you the best price, no matter when you book. But booking ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car in Cape Town?
Be sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Cape Town?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Cape Town is 18. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Hertz's policy to know what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Cape Town?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Cape Town. Compact or economy cars are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Cape Town vacation 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?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Hertz in South Africa. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Hertz require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Hertz does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Cape Town. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Hertz rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your Hertz rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Hertz.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Cape Town certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Hertz offer one-way rentals in Cape Town?
Hertz usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at another Hertz. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
