King Williams Town Guide

Nestled on the banks of the Buffalo River, in the Eastern Cape province, is King Williams Town. Holding a residential population of over 100,000 people, King Williams Town is one of the largest towns in the region. With a high number of buildings made of stone, the township of King William's Town is quite an intriguing place to visit.

Sitting at the foot of the Amatola Mountains, almost 400 meters above sea level, King William's Town is a rich agricultural and industrial district. The main products located in the township are jams, soaps, wool, grains, candles and leather. However, cattle and sheep farms are still predominant in the surrounding area. Tours can be organised, and car hire in King William's Town is the most effective transport option for this.

The closest airport to King Williams Town is the East London International Airport, which stands about 60kms to the east. Car rental in King Williams Town can provide quick access along the R346, which takes travellers directly into the East London Metropolitan Area. A train line also connects King William's Town with East London.

With East London just a 40 minute drive from King Williams Town, many visitors choose to travel to the township for daytrips. However, if tourists desire to stay for a night or two, then recommended hotels would include The Manderson Hotel, Hemingways Hotel and the Crown.

Most of the attractions of King Williams Town are located within easy reach of the city centre, particularly with cheap car hire in King Williams Town. The Amathole Museum and the Missionary Museum of South Africa are the city's main highlights, and the picturesque Pirie Forest and Mount Kemp are just a short drive by car.

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?

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.

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?
