Do you need a vehicle on your next trip to Johannesburg? Renting a car can give you freedom and flexibility when you’re travelling, and in some parts of the world it’s the only feasible way to get around. But a rental car can sometimes add complications to your trip — like trying to find the best deal or sorting out exactly which insurance options you need. Here is a practical tip on how to go about finding the best rental car to suit your needs.
When it comes to choosing a vehicle, think carefully about what kind of rental vehicle you will need. If you’re travelling with your family and you have children with a lot of gear, you may want a large sedan or SUV. If you’re simply looking to save money on rental rates and petrol costs, you will want to reserve the smallest available model.
Always try and find a rental vehicle similar to your own personal vehicle, as you will not have to reacquaint yourself with the gears or clutch setting. Picking a rental vehicle that suits your individual drive style is key to saving you time and a lot of frustration.
