Car Rental in South Africa

You will need a driving licence, passport or accepted form of ID and a credit card. You can rent a car for around 250 ZAR a day. These are just guidelines, so do check with the car hire company to clarify the cost and documentation needed.

Speed limits are in kilometres per hour, and are as follows:

  • Motorways: 120kph/74mph
  • Open roads: 100kph/62mph
  • Built-up areas: 60kph/37mph

South Africans drive on the left-hand side of the road.

Urban road conditions are sufficient, but rural roads are comparatively poor and unlit. Driving licences and maintenance of vehicles are not under rigid regulation, and many drivers travel at high speeds.

An International Driver's Permit carried alongside your national driving licence is recommended, and must be printed or authenticated in English. Always make sure documentation is carried with you when driving.
