Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best deals on a Port Elizabeth Sixt car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, booking your car well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need have with me when I pick up my rental car in Port Elizabeth?
You will 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?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Port Elizabeth is 18. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Sixt'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 all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Port Elizabeth. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does South Africa require car insurance?
In South Africa you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Sixt require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Sixt does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to return my Sixt rental with a full tank?
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle 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 fill up your tank before you bring it back to Sixt.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Port Elizabeth?
Port Elizabeth certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Port Elizabeth.
Can I get a one-way rental from Sixt?
Sixt offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at another location. However, there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
