Renting a car

Is it cheaper to rent a car once you get to South Africa? Automatic drive cars are coming up to be more expensive than I thought on expedia.com .

We prebooked Avis international reservations which worked out cheaper, as they tried to charge us more locally, (we had a dispute with the final visa bill when we got home) Avis have a lot of automatics, and an office in Nelspruit, although I think prices have risen in the past years. Maybe the local experts can help; that was just our experience.

Glad you are looking into the selfdrive option!

We had a great experience.
