Cons:

I arranged for a 5 am pickup. There was no shuttle. I was then waiting for the office to open at 6am as was posted at the office. By 6:10 there was still no one. I rented a vehicle from Avis. I will not be using hertz again.

Cons:

When I removed the car the employee said that the car was new and had no defects, including the marking sheet showed no malfunctions. Arriving in the car we found several risks and breakdowns and took a picture, because the employee said that anything later was discounted. but at the time of returni

Pros:

The staff was friendly and the car was nice.

Cons:

The wait was quite long getting the car. I was told it was easy to see the gas station at the airport upon the return but I didn’t. Someone from another rental helped me find it and actually rode with me. And they charged my credit card a $1300 deposit but haven’t credited it yet as promised.

Pros:

Car wasn’t filled with gas. Had to to fight with Hertz about that. Didn’t believe me that I’d received an empty vehicle. Also over charged fur insurance.

Pros:

The staff offered an upgrade. The process was easy and fast upon checking in and out. We got a great price as well!

Cons:

The car was small. We could have gotten a bigger size only because my husband is a giant! But that was out doing, not the company’s.

They did not show up at the airport to pick me up. I ended up renting another car.

They took the car to the wrong airport so we had to wait over two 2 hours. When they finally got there the guy was very rude and tried rushing me past the inspection. The guy dropping the car off left and when we went to start the rental car the battery was dead. Overall we were stuck 5 hours in a foreign country halfway around the world and booking.com customer support was absolutely no help. I will never book through a 3rd party every again.

Jun 2017

KAYAK

Cons:

After we told them no insurance they put it on the paper work then when we pointed it out he had to start the paperwork over again. Originally issued a car with no gas and smelled like cigarettes badly. Had to unpack our backs and go all the way back to the rental center. No apology. Just a silent reissue of keys. Drop off was chaotic. No return recipet was issued.

4.4 Okay

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was clean.

Cons:

You will get charged unexplained fees that will double the quoted Kayak rate, including a "fuel service fee" that no one will disclose to you until it shows up on your receipt and credit card statement. I will not be renting with Avis again.

Pros:

It was a good car for the category I have selected.

Cons:

The car had some noise in the wheels during the whole renting days, which I could not identify. I believe that if the car has gone through some check before being delivered, this slight problem could be fixed.

Top tips for hiring a car in Johannesburg

  • Renting a car is the perfect option for those wanting to explore not only Johannesburg, but also other major destinations across South Africa. Public transportation is often crowded and unreliable, and it is more cost-efficient to self-drive to some attractions rather than take tours. Rent a car and visit the many UNESCO World Heritage Sites, such as the Cradle of Humankind, or embark on a longer road trip and cross over the border to Botswana for a self-led safari.
  • All the major car rental companies can be found at Johannesburg O.R. Tambo Airport (JNB), which is just over 12 miles from the city center. The car rental desks are located to the left side as you enter the parking lot’s ground floor, just opposite Domestic Arrivals. Avis is open 24 hours. When driving out of the airport, you’ll find many “spaghetti” junctions, so, if you don’t know the area, make sure to ask for a GPS device when renting the car.
  • The first thing you need to know when driving in Johannesburg is that traffic runs on the left side of the road. Road signs are mainly expressed in both Afrikaans and English, and the distances are measured in kilometers rather than miles. When driving in the city, make sure to keep your windows rolled up, especially if you’re stopped. Avoid driving at night, as roads are dimly lit and the chances of encountering drunk, reckless drivers are higher.
  • Avoid driving through Johannesburg and particularly around the airport area during the morning rush hour, which usually happens between 6:30 a.m. and 9 a.m., and then again during the evening peak hour, between 3:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Traffic jams in Johannesburg can easily add up to an hour to your travels, so plan your journey in advance if you have to be somewhere at a specific time.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Johannesburg for ₹ 3,614 or less
  • Book your rental car in Johannesburg at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
