FAQ Overview
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for your rental car is mainly made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by the main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. Please note that the main driver must present a valid credit card issued in their name. Furthermore, the main and additional drivers must be in possession of a valid driving license for at least 1 year (for further information, please refer to the rental conditions). Moreover, both, the main and additional drivers are required to present a valid identity card/passport and must be of the minimum age specified in the rental conditions.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of delay. As a general rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver must present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driver's license and their valid credit card.

The city takes great prides in its parks and continues to invest in planting trees particularly in places that were hardest hit by apartheid. Johannesburg was a proud host of the 2010 FIFA World Cup final game. The game was played in the Calabash Stadium which is the largest stadium in Africa. It was also the location of Nelson Mandela’s first speech after his release from imprisonment in 1990. The historical beginning of the Johannesburg we know today was founded on the discovery of gold and diamonds. The gold rush of Johannesburg began in the 1880's. At this time it was a rough and disorganized city full of miners from other continents. Johannesburg has a subtropical highland climate due to the city’s location on the Highveld plateau. The summer months of October – April, offer sunny, hot days with afternoon thunderstorms that cool provide cool comfortable evenings. The winter months, May – September are typically dry and filled with sun but cool off dramatically once the sun goes down.

The most famous discoveries include the Australopithecus Africanus nicknamed Mrs. Ples found in 1947.
