Car Hire FAQs

What are the requirements to hire a car in East London?

East London is a coastal town in South Africa and one of the largest cities in the country. Before you start looking for car hire in East London, you will have to meet the basic requirements of hiring a car in South Africa. Firstly, you will need to be older than 18 years old and younger than 75 years old. You will also need your driving licence as well as an international driving permit to hire a car.

What are the rules for driving in East London?

If you want to hire a car in East London, you will need to know the rules of the road in East London, South Africa. In South Africa, all cars drive on the left side of the road, and both left-hand drive and right-hand drive vehicles are allowed to operate on the roads. The speed limit on highways is 80-120 kph (50-75 mph); inside the cities and suburban areas, the speed limit will drop to 60 kph (37 mph), and in school and residential areas, you will only be allowed to drive 30 kph (18 mph). The alcohol limit when driving is 0%, so if you are planning on going out to drink, it would be best to order an Uber there and back.

What type of car is recommended for driving in East London?

South African roads and highways are in very good condition, with most of South Africa having well-built infrastructure. If you are planning to go off road while driving, it will be recommended to hire a car that is 4X4, like a pickup truck, which in South Africa is called a bakkie. If you are only planning to drive around the city, then a regular four-door car will be perfect for navigating the streets of East London.

Where are the best places to park in East London?

Before you hire a car at a car hire office in East London, you will need to have a safe place to park it. While South Africa is mostly safe for visiting tourists, the country does have an overall high crime rate and car break-ins are commonplace. With this in mind, the best thing for you to do is to park your hire car either at your accommodation or in a secure car park nearby. If you have to park your car on the street, it should be fine for the most part, but there is always a chance it could be broken into or damaged while there.
