Frequently asked questions

Make sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Capetown's minimum age to rent a car?
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Capetown is 21. Make sure to review Hertz's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles in particular.
What kind of Hertz rental car should I get for my trip to Capetown?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Capetown. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have more room for everyone's belongings and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Capetown trip can choose the premium category for a car like an Audi A4 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. Many major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually cover your car rental. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Capetown. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Hertz car rental?
Hertz requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Capetown. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Hertz car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should return it topped off. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Hertz.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Capetown?
Capetown definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Capetown.
