Pros:

The young man who eventually assisted us was helpful and cordial.

Cons:

Upon arrival, we were told by a supervisor/ manager (name beginning with P) that the car which we had reserved online (Nissan Nivara) does not exist in their EL collection! We were offered a small utility van with canopy instead . Upon declining and asking for a sedan instead, he refused, saying there were no other cars available. Eventually, he referred us to his younger colleague and we were offered the "last available" VW Polo. The car had so many scratches and bumps on its exterior, it was not worth the paper of the "pre-inspection" form. Inside, it had a damp, musty smell and graffiti on the sun shades. When driven, it had squiling brakes and suffered roll-back, even when handbrake was lifted! That we paid over R700 (excluding other costs) to hire this non-roadworthy wreck felt like daylight robbery!

Don’t ever use this company in East London, South Africa. We made two separate booking through Priceline and when we went to pick them up, they had no record of either booking. We had to take a car that we didn’t want because we didn’t really have a choice. We returned the car full of gas and we’re then told that we owed more money for gas as the vehicle wasn’t full. There was apparently an “airlock button” which need to be pushed to get the tank to fill to its capacity. Very bad experience overall, save yourself the frustration and pay a little extra to avoid disappointment. I will never use them again.

Top tips for renting a car in East London

  • The South African city of East London is a vibrant and exciting place to visit at any time of year. With car hire in East London, you can leave the city confines and explore everything the area has to offer. Known around the world for the vast array of wildlife that inhabits the area, with car hire you can drive out and see some of the major sights including the Inkwenkwezi Private Game Reserve (around 30 miles from the city centre) or the Nahoon Estuary Nature Reserve (19 miles from the city centre).
  • The Eastern Cape province of South Africa is served by East London Airport (ELS), which offers domestic, continental and international travel options. The airport sits just south of the East London Coast Nature Reserve and is a mere 5min drive from the city centre, making your car hire in East London that bit easier. A number of major car hire companies, including Europcar and Budget, operate directly from the airport, while more companies can be found in the city centre itself.
  • With East London car hire, UK drivers will feel truly at home because cars drive on the left-hand side and road signs are written in English. The major roads and motorways are well maintained and should not cause any problems. However, always be aware of pedestrians: in some areas, children walk to and from school at the sides of main roads, which can cause a hazard, especially in low light conditions. Livestock and wildlife can occasionally be found on the roads around East London and throughout South Africa in general.
  • East London is South Africa’s third most congested city, so it is always a good idea to plan your journeys outside of the morning rush hour (08:00 to 10:00) and the evening rush hour (17:00 to 19:00) whenever possible. While the city does not experience a high volume of vehicles on its roads, traffic backs up quickly and you might be surprised to suddenly find yourself in a traffic jam.
  • Book your rental car in East London at least 3 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in East London are around 22% cheaper than other car types, on average
