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

Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Knysna?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Knysna. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Knysna trip can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 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 from Sixt. Many of the major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) typically cover your car rental.

To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Sixt.

Knysna certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Sixt?
Sixt offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at another location. However, there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
