You'll need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in East London?

Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to East London?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in East London. Compact or economy automobiles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room for everyone's suitcases and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their East London trip can choose the premium category for a car 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 from Hertz. Many major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically cover your car rental.

Make sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to East London.

What is the fuel policy on my Hertz car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You receive the car with full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Hertz. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

East London definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in East London.
