What you need to know before you go
How do I get the best prices on an Ermelo National rental car?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, no matter when you book. However, getting your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my vehicle in Ermelo?
Make sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Ermelo's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Ermelo set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Take time to go over National's policies, as there could be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Ermelo?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Ermelo. Economy or compact cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room for luggage and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Ermelo trip can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does South Africa require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from National in South Africa. Many of the major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually cover your car rental. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Ermelo. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?
National does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Ermelo. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
We encourage a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle 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 the car back to National.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Ermelo?
Ermelo certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at another location. However, there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
