Polokwane Guide

Polokwane is the new name given to the South African city of Pietersburg. The provincial capital's new name came recently (2005) and is still catching on, so maps are likely to use alternate names depending when they were issued. Car hire in Polokwane is the best way to reach all the sites in the region.

The main attractions here are nature related, and eco-tourists are likely to find that a car rental in Polokwane is the only way to get out away from the crowds and spot wildlife. Local travel agencies can help with the arrangements, but some of the most rewarding sightings occur independently.

Polokwane Railway Station is along Mark Street near the city centre. This important hub connects to major stops in Johannesburg as well as in Kruger National Park. These are the two likeliest destinations for tourists leaving Polokwane and both can be reached with cheap car hire in Polokwane.

Polokwane is also one of the most popular hunting destinations in South Africa. Onsite travel agents organize outings and all equipment, but in some cases it is possible to drive to a game reserve with car rental in Polokwane in order to cut out the costs of chartering transportation.

Polokwane International Airport is a dual-runway facility to the north of the city. It's accessible from N1 near the intersection with Velspaat Street. Flights regularly depart for Johannesburg, while international and other regional flights are on a charter basis. Once landing at the airport, hire cars can be picked up outside the Arrivals hall.

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?
