Bloemfontein Guide

Known as the City of Roses, Bloemfontein is South Africa’s judicial capital and the capital of the Free State province. It has much to offer visitors in the way of cultural and historical attractions and is a convenient gateway to the rest of the Free State area.

Bloemfontein’s attractions are diverse, ranging from a plethora of historically significant buildings, to nature reserves, to a selection of shopping malls, art galleries and craft centres. The Orchid House is an exquisite tropical style nursery that will delight horticultural lovers, and the Free State Botanical Gardens are equally as enticing. Naval Hill provides sweeping views of the city and is also home to the Franklin Nature Reserve.

Numerous historical buildings are located in town, and taking a leisurely stroll through Bloemfontein’s streets is the best way to appreciate the wealth of historical and architectural treasures. These include the imposing sandstone City Hall, the Old Presidency, the Victorian Anglican Cathedral dating from 1850, the Dutch Reformed twin tower church and the judicial buildings.

A range of art galleries and museums are also scattered throughout Bloemfontein. Visitors can choose between the Rugby Museum, the National Museum, the War Museum of the Boer Republics, the Oliewenhuis Art Gallery and many more.

Shopping opportunities are profuse in Bloemfontein, with everything from high fashion boutiques to arts and crafts stores on offer. The recently developed Loch Logan Waterfront offers entertainment venues, restaurants, pubs and shopping for all ages. Bloemfontein is also the ideal destination for sports fans, with state-of-the-art sports stadiums for rugby, cricket, athletics, hockey and tennis, and an Olympic standard swimming pool.

Bloemfontein is the perfect springboard from which to explore the rest of the Free State, with its many attractions. The Gariep Dam and the Willem Pretorius Game Reserve are two of the Free State’s greatest natural attractions, while towns such as Edenburg and Reddersburg have their own unique flavour and historical highlights. Kimberley, the Free State’s second most important city has a rich legacy as a mining town and has preserved some of the remnants of the heady Diamon Rush days, including the remarkable ‘big hole’ &endash; an enormous man-made testament to greed.

Bloemfontein is well-connected to the rest of the country with a comprehensive system of rail, road and air connections. There is an excellent road infrastructure, and coaches and buses provide regular transport to and from the city. Rail connections from north and south meet in Bloemfontein, and the city is served by fast flights from all over the country. It also has a significant location on the N1 between Johannesburg and Cape Town.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
