Summer holidays … here we come!!

When we think of summer holidays our minds often drift to leisurely days spent on the beach, under an umbrella with a cocktail in our hands. However, South Africa is a diverse country with a myriad of beautiful destinations to explore where you can relax, de-stress and discover some beautiful hidden gems.

With the summer holidays nearly upon us, it is imperative to book your accommodation and car rental as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.  It is estimated that this is going to be a bumper  holiday season for tourism in South Africa as more visitors are predicted to be visiting our sunny shores than last year. Avoid the crowds and look at staying at some of the smaller accommodation providers such as bed and breakfasts, guest houses or boutique hotels. The National Accommodation Association of South Africa is a network of these smaller accommodation providers. Visit their website  and discover a place you have yet to explore.

If you are looking for an escape from one of the popular holiday destinations where you will fight with the crowds at the airports, restaurants and hotels, try one of the less popular but equally exquisite places. Hertz Rent a Car has a branch at the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport outside Nelspruit which is the gateway to the Kruger Park and the natural beauty of Mpumalanga where you can explore Bourke’s Luck Potholes, Pilgrims Rest or take a walk to one of the many well-known waterfalls. Perhaps the Northern Cape is somewhere you have considered taking in but never got around to pursuing. Now is the time to think of visiting The Big Hole of Kimberley, the smaller game reserves and parks in the area. Hertz Rent a Car has locations at both Kimberley and Upington airports giving you fly-and-drive options for your holiday planning.

Whatever your destination is or your plans are for your much-needed break, you can rely on Hertz Rent a Car for quality rental vehicles and service.
