Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best deals on a Port Elizabeth National car rental?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, no matter when you book. But reserving your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my vehicle in Port Elizabeth?
You'll need to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Port Elizabeth?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Port Elizabeth is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to review National's policies to know what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Port Elizabeth?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Port Elizabeth. Compact or economy automobiles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little extravagance on their trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in South Africa?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in South Africa. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase 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 book your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
We encourage a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to National. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Port Elizabeth definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Port Elizabeth.
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 vehicle at another location. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
