What you need to know about car rentals in Kimberley
How do I get a Kimberley National car rental at a great price?
We strive to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your car. However, booking ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to check the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Kimberley?
Make sure to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Kimberley?
Most suppliers in Kimberley set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Make sure to review National's policy, as there could be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals especially.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Kimberley?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Kimberley. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Kimberley trip can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in South Africa?
In South Africa you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many of the major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Kimberley. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with 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 car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the car topped off. If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to National. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Kimberley definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Kimberley.
Does National offer one-way rentals in Kimberley?
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at another location. However, there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
