Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best deals on a Grahamstown National car rental?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. But reserving ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Grahamstown?
You'll need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Grahamstown's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Grahamstown set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Make sure to review National's policies, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles in particular.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Grahamstown?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Grahamstown. Compact or economy cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV will have more room and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Grahamstown getaway can choose the premium category to get 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. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can 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. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Grahamstown. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your National rental with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to National. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Grahamstown definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at a different National. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
