National Car Rentals in Pietermaritzburg: What you need to know

There are so many neighborhoods in Kwazulu Natal that are worth exploring, you'll want your own automobile to check out all there is to do here. The city buses, while inexpensive, drop you off far from your destination. Ride hailing, like Uber or Lyft, is convenient, but smaller towns may not have timely service. Plus, the cost of going from here to there can start to add up.

If you want the easiest way to get around town at a great rate, then you have found the right spot. Founded by a couple dozen independent car rental agents in 1947, National has grown from 60 locations in the U.S. to over 2,000 international locations. National provides everything economy to luxury cars, allowing you to choose the best ride for your holiday.

Frequently asked questions

How do I find the best prices on a Pietermaritzburg National rental car?

You are on your way to finding the best deal on your car rental when you use us. Nonetheless, there are ways to get an even lower price on your next rental:

  • Compare the prices of vehicles
  • Try to avoid airport pick-ups or drop-offs, which can be more expensive
  • Know ahead of time the amount of fuel/mileage you may use
  • Search and reserve as far in advance as you can

A little knowledge goes a long way to increase your savings.

What documents do I need when I pick up my rental car in Pietermaritzburg?

Be sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.

How old do I have to be to rent a car?

Most suppliers, like National, require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Please note, there might be an added fee if you are under 25 or for higher category cars especially. Go over National's to find what the exact fee will be before you book your rental

What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Pietermaritzburg?

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Pietermaritzburg. If you are having difficulty deciding, make sure to go over the chart below. We've compared the most popular categories for you:

Is insurance required when you rent a car in South Africa?

Most countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to buy additional insurance through National, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover you while traveling through South Africa. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you reserve a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check National's policy before you decide.

Do I need to pay a deposit on my National rental car?

National, like many other rental car companies, requires a deposit when you book. The sum can vary greatly depending on the size of the car. Additionally, be sure you have enough on your credit card to cover a deposit.

What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?

At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You should receive your vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to return it filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a filling station before you return the car to National.

Why should I get unlimited miles in Pietermaritzburg?

Most suppliers offer unlimited miles, but you need to ensure it is part of the bundle that you are purchasing. It's helpful to know how far you want to drive so you can plan your trip in advance. Although most car rental companies offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your package, those miles can pile up—and so can the extra cost. You may need to have unlimited miles if you're thinking of some road trips to explore all that is in Kwazulu Natal.
