Germiston Guide

Forming part of the greater Johannesburg metropolitan area, Germiston, the sixth-largest ‘city’ in South Africa, and mainly a commercial and industrial town, situated within easy accessibility of Johannesburg. Its primary attraction is Germiston Lake, located close to the heart of the city.

The lake, surrounded by scenic parklands, provides marvellous opportunities for family fun, with a wide range of water sports and leisure possibilities, including sailing, picnicking and a children’s playground. The nearby Rondebult Bird Sanctuary is a rare wetland area that is home to numerous species of birds and some mammals, such as zebra, blesbok, reedbuck and springbok.

The city features a number of museums and art galleries, and nearby Katlehong township houses the Katlehong Art Centre, well worth a visit.

Apart from the leisure opportunities presented by Germiston Lake, Gilloolys Farm, in Bedfordview, offers barbeque facilities, a children’s play area, a family golf centre and a restaurant. There is a bass dam that is popular with fishermen, and regular events such as dog shows are held here. Gosforth Park Racecourse hosts regular horseracing events. Additionally, there is a well-manicured, 18-hole golf course which incorporates the Germiston Lake on the par-three 15th and 17th holes.

Eastgate Shopping Center in Bedfordview offers an array of tempting shops, some of which specialise in traditional African curios, jewellery and artworks. Alternatively, the nearby Bruma Lake shopping complex is situated opposite the Bruma Lake flea market, which features hundreds of stalls selling all manner of goods, and is open every day of the week.

Johannesburg city centre, with its vast range of cultural and historical attractions, and multitude of fine restaurants and social and theatrical venues, is just a short drive away. The township of Soweto, which played a significant role in the apartheid struggle, is another noteworthy attraction nearby.

Germiston has excellent access to all the major highways heading north, south, east or west. Johannesburg International Airport and Rand Airport are both situated in close proximity to Germiston.

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).

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?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.
