Southgate Guide

One of the trickiest things about visiting Johannesburg can be finding the right place to stay. Many visitors find that they don't particularly want to base themselves right in the centre of the city as the pace of life is to frantic and accommodation can be expensive.

The suburb of Southgate is an excellent option as it is located just 12kms from the city centre and there are plenty of good hotels to be found here as well as a wide range of businesses. Visitors will find plenty of car hire in Southgate as well as shops and restaurants.

The pace of life tends to be much more laidback in Southgate and many visitors end up extending their stay here. There are also some pretty gardens and monuments to explore.

One of the main attractions in this area is the stunningly beautiful Kilpriviersberg Nature Reserve. Those who have already taken the time to pick up cheap car hire in Southgate will have no trouble getting here as Columbine Avenue runs straight from Southgate to the nature reserve. Once here it is possible to hire a guide and spend the entire exploring.

It takes less than 20 minutes to drive from Southgate to the centre of Johannesburg and this is another reason that so many visitors to this area opt for car rental in Southgate. Motorists can simply follow the De Villiers Graaff Motorway all the way from Southgate to the heart of the city and the journey takes them through Crown Gardens and Booyens Reserve.

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?

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. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

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?
