Frequently asked questions

CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your car. However, reserving your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I carry with me when I pick up my car rental in Knysna?
You will need to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Knysna's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Knysna require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review National's policies to know if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Knysna?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Knysna. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size car or SUV will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Knysna getaway can choose the premium category for 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 from National. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, 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 United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does National require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
National does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
We suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your National rental topped off. If you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to National.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Knysna?
Knysna certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Knysna.
Does National offer one-way rentals in Knysna?
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental car at a different location. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
