Car Hire Durban South Africa
Car hire Durban South Africa is really easy through out the city. Most people will enter Durban through the airport at King Shaka international. King Shaka has the like of Avis, Budget,Eurocar Dollar Thriffy,Hertz
and many more. A word of advice for locals to remember is that most of the big name will not give you unlimited millage and if planning a business trip say in Toti remember it 140 km there and back. However Dollar and tempest if your savior here as they will locals unlimited millage if you book online.
Foreign tourish don’t however have this problem.
Other thing to remember for Car hire Durban South Africa is that you will need a credit card to hire a car and I suppose it like in most country’s however cheque card are also accepted. Debit cards are not accept unfortunely for Car hire. Also most of the big companies take a holding deposit of R5000 about (US$750) but if you take super cover which is normally about R60 per day then the holding deposit comes down to R1000 (US$150). Also if you missed getting a car at the Airport don’t worry to much as most hotels will gladly organize a car for you. Add the fact that more rental car hire companies have outlets throughout the city s well as well at most major shopping cnetres through out Durban.
Cash hire companies there are a few small operators at the airport that do offer cash hire options these operators do require a R5000-00 deposit paid in cash up front. I just advice tourists to goto to accredits outlet at the airport if they planning to do this and also check on the excess waiver and insurance option before accepting the rental. Bottom line just check the contract through very carefully they do however work well.
My advice to you when hiring a car
1. They don’t cover under carriage
2. Make sure and insist someone from the company goes and does an all round check on the car for scratches, dents etc
3. If you not happy with the car ask for anther don’t be shy to ask.
