Classes of cars and cost of rent

A viable car, a massive 4x4, or a hasty hatchback, choose the car you need to calculate the rental cost.

In addition, the price depends on the point where you are planning to pick up the car. Pay attention to this to make the trip more advantageous.

How to get an additional discount in South Africa

Before choosing a car and booking, check the list of special offers and deals on the cars-scanner website. They may help you save a significant amount. In addition, early booking will help you optimise costs; many rental companies give additional discounts to those who book the rental 2-6 months before the trip.

You may cancel the booking free of charge 24 hours before the start of the rental time, in this case, the money will be returned to your account in full.

Booking cancellation & modification policy

If the details of your trip have changed, and you do not need a booked car, there are no problems.

We will replace your booking free of charge, if you contact us at least 24 hours before the start of the rental time.

Cancellation less than 24 hours will cost you 50 EUR; the rest will be returned to your account.

Carefully read the cancellation policy for cars participating in deals and special offers; some of them may change their cancellation conditions.

Age. Restrictions and extra charges

Cheap car rental in South Africa is possible for drivers 25 years old and over. Young drivers under 25 may be subject to an extra charge on the spot. Some car rental companies charge an additional fee for drivers aged 71-75 years. Age restrictions of a provider and the amount of an extra charge may be found out when booking a car in South Africa on our website by going to the Age Restrictions section.

Cover terms and conditions. Size of the franchise. Security deposit

When booking, you will be offered several options for car insurance. For a quiet trip, cars-scanner recommends that you take out a full insurance policy, which covers almost all possible damages. You may do this on our website or at the rental company office.

Each car has its own set of features, which are indicated in the insurance document. Be careful when taking it and read through the Insurance Cover section to insure yourself against further surprises.  Example:

Extra payments at the rental office and possible taxes

In order for you not having to think about additional costs, we, the cars-scanner service, provide car rental services on an all-inclusive basis where you may see the final fixed price.

However, when booking, you have the opportunity to include payable options, for example, GPS. You should pay for it later, directly to the rental company.

Our flight was delayed by about 5 hours and we had no way of contacting the company of our late arrival.
