    South African Streets: What to Expect?

    In South Africa, you drive on the left-hand side of the road. It may seem intimidating, but after a few days you will gain confidence to navigate the city of Cape Town. The general speed limits are 60km/h on a public road within an urban area; 100km/h on a public road outside an urban area, which is not a freeway; and 120km/h on a freeway. The use of cell phones while driving is only permitted with a headset or hands-free technology. Please be aware of animals and pedestrians crossing streets, especially on freeways after dark. Driving under the influence of any drugs or substances is a criminal offense in South Africa.

    Terms and Conditions when renting a car with Rentals 4 U:


    The rental car comes with a comprehensive insurance package (incl. 3rd party cover) that has a maximum excess of:

    • Hyundai Atos - R4000 (ZAR)
    • Hyundai i10 range - R5000 (ZAR)
    • 3rd party damages - R1500 (ZAR) (flat 3rd party excess)

    The insurance package covers accidents, damages, break in and theft. The insurance package does not cover accidents which occur while under the influence of alcohol over the allowed legal speed limit. South Africa does not apply the concept of compulsory 3rd party damage insurance, like most other countries in the world. This can lead to situations where someone has caused an accident but they are not insured and cannot pay for the damages caused. In these circumstances the renter of the car takes over this risk (spread of risk) and will be liable for those damages up to the stipulated excess. The 3rd party liability cover is up to ZAR 5 Million


    All vehicle rentals need to be collected and returned at the following address:

    36 Clifford Avenue, Disapark, Vredehoek, Cape Town, 8001.
    (Unless prior arrangement has been made regarding a pick-up / drop off point)

    We work on appointment only and pickup and return times must be arranged beforehand. Standard pickup time is 12pm or later. If the car needs to be collected before 12pm then special arrangements need to be made and agreed on. The rental car needs to be returned by 12pm on the return date. We can offer any airport pick-up and drop offs on request. The car needs to be returned refuelled and in a clean (inside and outside) condition. If the car is returned in an unclean state, we charge R150 (ZAR) cleaning fee. Costs for the removal of massive stains on seats etc are charged separately. For refuelling we charge the current fuel price as well as an additional R100 (ZAR) refuelling fee.


    Rental periods up to 2 weeks:

    • Payments are payable upfront in full.
    • Rental periods in excess of 2 weeks:
    • Monthly payments can be arranged.
    • We offer the following payment methods:
      1. Cash
      2. EFT (National or International bank transfer)
      3. Credit / Debit card (+5% surcharge)

    If you receive a fine during the period of hiring period of one of our vehicles, the following additional payments will be added:

    • R150 (ZAR) handling fee will be added to the fine amount for settling the fine with the South African traffic department
    • NAG fines with a compulsory court appearance will have a surcharge fee of R1500 (ZAR) per fine, as well as the actual court ordered fine amount. (These fines are issued when a car is in excess of 30km/h of the allowed speed limit. This is seen as dangerous and reckless driving)

    The rental package comes with unlimited km car hire. However, there is teritorial use limit. What this means is that the car is limited to travel within a 200km radius of the Cape Town Convention Centre. If you are traveling outside of this area, then the comprehensive insurance will become null and void and any costs incurred for vehicle damages will become the responsibility of the hirer to pay. For an additional fee of R1000 (ZAR) per month, the radius can be extended from 200km to 750km per month.


    The renter can lodge the security deposit of R4000 / R5000 (ZAR) with credit card where the amount will be pre-authorised/blocked for the duration of the rental agreement as well as the window period of three months thereafter (this is to ensure that all outstanding fines will be accounted for and settled). Unfortunately one is unable to pre authorise on a debit card, therefor if no credit card is available, the full amount will have to be deducted from the debit card and refunded to the debit card once the holding period is completed.


    While no specific skill level is required to hire our vehicles, the minimum age to hire a vehicle is 21 years and older. This applies to the nominated 2nd driver too. If an accident occurs with the hired vehicle and the driver of the vehicle at the time is not the nominated driver or the 2nd driver, and the person is below the age of 21, the person who has hired the vehicle will be held liable for the accident costs. No one with a learners licence is allowed to operate our vehicles either.


    For a confirmed booking we will require a booking deposit of R1000 (ZAR). Payment of the booking deposit will be possible via credit card or bank transfer. For credit card payments we will send a Payfast payment link. The 5% surcharge for credit card payment is not applicable for the booking deposit.


    All bookings can be cancelled 30 days before the commencement of the rental agreement. The cancellation fee will be R300 (ZAR). Cancellations shorter than 30 days will forfeit the booking deposit fee.
