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.

Frequently asked questions

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.

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.
