Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Germiston National car rental at a great price?
We try to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. But booking ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need to bring when I get my car in Germiston?
You'll need to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Germiston's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Germiston require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review National's policy to determine if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Germiston?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Germiston. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room for luggage and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Germiston getaway can choose a higher-end category like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS 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 (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) generally offer coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Germiston. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does National require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
National requires a deposit when you book your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
We recommend a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to National.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Germiston definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Germiston.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at a different National. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
