Frequently asked questions

How do I get a Johannesburg National car rental at a great price?

We strive to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. But booking ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.

What do I need have with me when I get my car rental in Johannesburg?

You will need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.

What's Johannesburg's minimum age to rent a car?

National's minimum age to rent a car in Johannesburg is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review National's policy to know if there is an additional cost for you.

Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Johannesburg?

That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Johannesburg. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Johannesburg vacation can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class 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 from National. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. 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 reserve your car for your trip to Johannesburg. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.

What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?

We encourage a full to full policy. You receive the car with full tank, and you should return it topped off. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to National.

Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Johannesburg?

Johannesburg definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.

Does National offer one-way rentals in Johannesburg?

National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at a different location. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
