Long term car rental or vehicle buy back

We will be in South Africa for 6 months and are looking at the option of either a long term car rental or vehicle buyback.

Would appreciate any advice and information on companies which offer either option.

Many thanks.

I would settle for long term car rental. But off course it will depend on where you can get the best deal. It will come down to the best insurance package as well.

Hello,

I am in the same case as you were, I am going to South Africa for 6 months. What option did you finally go with: long term rental or a buyback contract?

Thanks

We eventually went for a long term rental through rentalcars.com.

They didn't tell us who the consolidator was but we ended up at Budget Cape Town.

All very satisfactory-we're in to or fourth month.
