Car rental in South Africa is one of the largest conveniences instead of having to use public transport either when you do not own a vehicle, or when you cannot use your own vehicle. Car Rental is especially useful when you fly between cities and are required to travel during this time.

However, before you rent a car there are some considerations to ensure that you get the best value for your money. While car hire in South Africa can be expensive especially through a conventional car hire agency, there are other affordable and reliable options available.

Bakkie and Van Hire is a reputable name in South Africa featuring 14 branches nationwide. Well-known for Van, Bakkie, Trailer sales and rentals, car hire is the newest rental option starting at affordable prices, available in Cape Town, Montana, Centurion, and Randburg.

Car rental prices can be more cost-effective than owning your own car and car rental is an option when you enter any of the following scenarios:

  • If you live in a large city that does not have decent public transport and you need to travel for business, you can consider car rental on a weekly or monthly basis as needed.
  • If you do not have your own vehicle and you would like to go on a road trip on vacation, you can consider car rental instead of relying on public transport. This provides you with the flexibility of moving around at your holiday destination.

How to Hire a Car from Us

Before you hire a car from any agency, there are some considerations namely:

  • Make sure that the car rental agency has the necessary paperwork such as your driver’s license, identification book, and any additional documentation.
  • Make sure that you inspect the exterior and the interior of the car that you are renting to ensure that it is in good condition. Also ensure that any existing cosmetic damage to the vehicle such as scrapes, dents, and scratches are noted so that it does not come from your security deposit when the vehicle is returned. Ideally, your rental car should not be damaged, and you should not accept a damaged car.
  • Before you take your rental car on the road, make sure that you are familiar with the car. Every vehicle is different, and you should take your time adjusting the seat, mirrors, and all other components to ensure that you can operate the vehicle safely and comfortably.
  • Always make sure that you have a travel plan, depending on whether you are renting a car for business or leisure.
  • Always make sure of the type of fuel that your rental car uses and always return the vehicle with a full tank.
  • Make sure that the rental car is returned on or before your rental period ends.
  • Make sure that the damage waiver is included and that you understand the percentage of damages you are liable for, only if there are damages.
