1. Re: Car hire

I suggest you google some of the companies, and see what they have to offer.

Once you have decided on what type of vehicle you need, what package options are available for that vehicle, then post a request for comments by TA members who may have had experience with those companies, and or e or similar options.

Some of the companies.....

Tempest

Hertz

Avis

Budget

Europcar

Wise wheels

Rent a wreck

etc etc

I've been using Avis for over 20 years & have found them to be both helpful & trouble free. Become a "Preferred" member before you leave & avoid the queues.

Hi,

For our next trip we are considering www.cabs.co.za . Haven't used them yet, but from my research they have pretty good rates and reviews. See if they fit your needs.

Check out economy car rentals. I find them to have the best prices usually with extras included. They use the major companies . I have cancelled with no problems
