Important information about Johannesburg car hire

Africa has breath-taking tourist destinations. But one of the cities you would always want to set your eyes on is Johannesburg. It rapidly evolved from a safari layover to a pulsating hub for education, arts, and culture. It is popular for its history of reliable gold mining. The metropolis now hosts the Apartheid Museum, Constitution Hill, South African National Museum of Military History, and the Market Theatre. With a well-developed network of highways in the metropolitan area, navigating and parking hired cars in Johannesburg is not a difficult undertaking. Notable roads include N1, N3, N12, N17, R21, M1, M2, and R59. You can opt to acquire an ordinary or an electric car rental from any of the over 100 car hire locations in Johannesburg.

Finding a parking spot in Johannesburg’s central business district is straightforward. And you will find a secure spot for your small car or people carrier rental. Look out for private car parks, parking lots, and on-street parking options. Parking is payable on an hourly, daily, or monthly basis. Although the city is walkable, it would be tasking to access everywhere on foot, particularly if you are on a short visit. A car will do, and you can choose between a cheap car rental or a luxury car rental in Johannesburg. Your choice depends on your budget. You can also use hired cars in Johannesburg to access nearby destinations, such as Gold Reef City, Soweto slums, Mandela Museum, Lion & Safari Park, and Pretoria. Operating a private means of transport always comes with flexibility and peace of mind.

Most driving laws in Johannesburg, Gauteng, are similar to those of the UK since South Africa was a colony of England. Keep on the left when operating rental cars in Johannesburg and keep your eyes on the signposts that line the highways and streets. While you should obey traffic lines, do not stop for the red light when driving at night, and all roads are clear. Ensure that you always have your seatbelt buckled and avoid using your mobile phone when on the road. Speeding up in urban areas or around schools and playgrounds is unlawful. Since these laws could change from time to time, always liaise with the transport and motor vehicle department for updates.

The minimum driving age in Johannesburg and, by extension, South Africa is 17 years. However, you will need a valid driving license. British nationals visiting South Africa can acquire and operate hired cars in Johannesburg using their British driving license. Also, visitors whose foreign driving licenses are in English can easily access and drive Johannesburg car rentals. But if you can still access a luxury or cheap car rental with a license printed in a language different from English as long you accompany it with an International Driver’s Permit. The IDP acts as a translation of your driving license.
