Thrifty Car Rentals in Durban: What you need to know

Durban is just one of many neighborhoods in Kwazulu Natal that are worth exploring, and, you will want a vehicle to check out everything there is to do around the area. Local buses, while affordable, may not drop you off right where you want to go. Ride hailing, like Uber or Lyft, is convenient, but small towns may not have timely service. Additionally, the cost of going from here to there can start to add up.

If you want the easiest way to get around town for an affordable price, then you're in the right place. Thrifty is one of the many great rental car businesses we work with to not only get you the car you want for your trip, but also get you the best price.

Frequently asked questions

How do I find the best deals on a Durban Thrifty car rental?

You are well on your way to getting the best deal on your car rental by going through us. Nonetheless, to increase your savings on your trip to Durban you can do a few things:
