Before selecting a specific model to book, check your planned routes. If you are going to drive mostly within the Johannesburg borders, choose a car of 'Standard' or 'Compact' types. In case you plan long cross-countries trips or mountain adventures, the more comfortable and powerful 'Fullsize' models would become a better choice.

If you need a car with an automatic gearbox, try to make a reservation at least a few days before the pick-up date, since confirmation of such models in Johannesburg might be delayed for a day or two.

Upon the return of your car, carefully check that the total payment amount (invoice) is computed according to the original rental conditions.

We wish you 'smooth', secure and safe roads in Johannesburg!

It is important to note that car insurance is not mandatory in South Africa. Therefore, in case of an accident you will need to call the police from the site of the accident. It is the police (not insurance agents, like in many countries), who make the report, according to which the amount of insurance payment is determined.
In some cities, drivers are likely to see rather unusual road signs. Signs that indicate the location of streets are painted on curbs, which are located along roads. Local drivers have already become accustomed to such road signs, while foreign guests will certainly consider them very original.
The fine for speeding can be up to 500 rand. The police are allowed to charge penalty for this type of violation right on the spot. If the offender has been caught by a radar or camera, then he will receive the fine receipt in the mail.
