KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Bloemfontein

  • The benefits of car hire in Bloemfontein are endless, if you value the freedom it provides and the convenience to explore the city with its surrounding areas at your own pace. While there are buses and taxis available, the buses in Bloemfontein are operated by private companies such as Bloemfontein Public Transport and Motheo Bus Services, but are known to run late or be cancelled at the last minute. Plus, public transport timetables are tricky to navigate and are often overcrowded. Having a car hire in Bloemfontein allows you to easily access the many attractions beyond the city, such as the Free State National Botanical Garden and the Franklin Game Reserve.
  • If you are flying into SA and have decided on Bloemfontein car hire, you'll find the car hire offices conveniently located within the terminal building of Bram Fischer International Airport (BFN). There are no shuttle services from the terminal to the car hire offices, as they are easily accessible on foot. Popular car hire companies operating from this airport include Avis, Budget, and Europcar. The car park where you can retrieve your hire car is situated just outside the terminal building, in Car Park A.
  • Driving a car hire in Bloemfontein offers a positive experience due to the well-maintained and organised road system. The main roads, such as the Nelson Mandela Drive and the National Road N8, are in good condition, allowing for smooth and comfortable drives. However, it's important to exercise caution and be aware of pedestrians. Pedestrians tend to cross the road without warning and can sometimes be travelling with livestock, so it's crucial to remain vigilant at all times.
  • Rush hour typically occurs between 7:30 and 8:30 and between 17:00 and 18:00. The Nelson Mandela Drive and the National Road N8 are two major roads that are affected during these peak hours. There are a few things to take note of whilst driving in Blowmfontien. Firstly, keep your doors locked wherever possible, especially after parking. Some drivers in the city may display aggressive behaviour, so it's advisable to drive defensively and adhere to all traffic rules and regulations, and watch for potholes on rural roads.
  • Book your rental car in Bloemfontein at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Bloemfontein are around 61% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Bloemfontein?

    For driving in Bloemfontein, we recommend a compact car, as the city streets can be narrow in certain areas, most commonly in residential neighbourhoods like Westdene and Willows. If you plan on exploring the surrounding regions or venturing into the nearby mountains, like the Maluti Mountains or the Golden Gate Highlands National Park, an SUV would be a recommended choice. The rugged terrain and potential off-road driving make an SUV more suitable for these areas.

  • What’s the speed limit in Bloemfontein?

    When driving a car hire in Bloemfontein, you'll notice that the speed limits typically range from 60 to 80 km/h (37 to 50 mph) within the city limits. In certain residential zones of Bloemfontein, the speed limits are typically around 40 km/h (25 mph) or lower. This includes areas like Westdene and Willows. On the highways outside the city, such as the N8 and N1, the speed limits can go up to 120 km/h (75 mph).

  • Where are the best places to park in Bloemfontein?

    Parking in Bloemfontein is generally available and relatively affordable. In the city centre, paid parking garages and metered street parking are common. The cost of parking in these areas typically ranges from 10 to 20 ZAR (0.50 to 1 GBP) per hour. In the city centre of Bloemfontein, you can find popular car parks such as Hoffman Square Parking, Loch Logan Waterfront Parking, and Plaza West Parking. These parking garages offer convenient access to shopping centres, restaurants, and other attractions in the heart of the city.
