Limpopo Guide


Limpopo is the northernmost province of South Africa, named after the great river that forms the country's borders with Botswana and Zimbabwe. Having 10 per cent of South Africa's land area, Limpopo is known for its spectacular wilderness, rich wildlife and a wealth of cultural and historical sites. Polokwane, the capital city, is easily accessed from other parts of the country through self-drive, with having your own wheels the best way to get around.

Hiring a Vehicle

The roads in this province have come a long way since it was first carved by ox wagons. The highways are developed, with all the usual modern amenities and abundant road signs. Car rental in Limpopo is the best way to visit the Great North. Most international companies are represented, including Avis, Hertz and Budget. Compare car hire before travel as many local companies offer great bargains.

The airport in Hoedspruit has daily connections to Johannesburg, providing easy access to the main tourist attractions in the province.

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.
