KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in George

  • Car rentals in George, South Africa, provide the convenience of traveling with your luggage, sports equipment, or other belongings without the restrictions of baggage limits on public transport. In addition, South Africa, like many countries, has areas with varying levels of safety. Having your own vehicle can give you a sense of security as you control your surroundings. Most importantly, some of the most beautiful and less crowded spots on the Garden Route can be off the beaten path. With a rental car, you can access remote attractions such as Wilderness National Park, Blombos Trail, and The Karoo, which may not be easily reachable by public transportation.
  • George, South Africa, is served by the George Airport (GRJ). This airport is the primary gateway for travelers visiting the Garden Route region and is located approximately 4.3 miles to the north of the city center of George. The facility has several car rentals in George with counters at the airport's car rental kiosks, making it convenient for travelers to rent vehicles upon arrival. Popular brands include Europcar, First Car Rental, and Bidvest Car Rental. The rental car parking lots and facilities are adjacent to the terminal building.
  • South Africa follows a left-hand driving system, which means car rentals in George drive on the left side of the road, and the steering wheel is located on the right side of the vehicle. That said, defensive driving is essential in George and throughout South Africa. While the roads in the area are generally well-maintained, there can be unexpected hazards such as wildlife crossing the street in more rural areas. In some areas, especially in townships or urban neighborhoods, pedestrians may cross the road without warning. Drivers should be vigilant and prepared for pedestrians at any time.
  • George, South Africa, is not known for severe road congestion or heavy traffic jams like major metropolitan areas, but it does experience some traffic during peak hours. Rush hours generally occur during typical commuter times, similar to many other places: between 7 am and 9 am and 4 pm and 6 pm. Roads and areas where traffic may become busier during rush hours or peak travel times include Courtenay Street (R102), York Street (R102), and Nelson Mandela Boulevard (N2).

If you're traveling with a small family or friends, a sedan provides more space and comfort than a compact car. Sedans are also good if you plan to mix city driving and longer trips along the Garden Route. An SUV is an excellent choice if you plan to explore some of the rugged terrain and unpaved roads in the surrounding areas. SUVs offer more ground clearance and are suitable for adventures like visiting national parks or hiking trails.

    Before sitting behind the wheel of car rentals in George, remember that fines for speeding can be significant, and there may be consequences such as license suspension for excessive speeding. To this end, maintain 60 km/h (37 mph) in built-up or urban areas, 100 km/h (62 mph) on rural roads, and 120 km/h (75 mph) on freeways and highways.

  • Where are the best places to park car rentals in George, South Africa?

    Many hotels, guesthouses, and vacation rentals in George offer on-site parking facilities for their guests. If you're staying at such accommodations, take advantage of their parking options.

8.0 Very good

Mar. 2021

KAYAK

Cons:

The only issue was with the car. The radio display was too bright and could not be dimmed, making it difficult to drive at night (had to cover the display by holding something over it).

5.6 Fair

Mar. 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

The car. And the competence of staff when you were working with those that were knowledgeable.

Cons:

At the time I picked up the car in George, South Africa, I specifically discussed with the agent that I did not need insurance as I had already bought it independently. And I did not sign a contract that included insurance. When I returned the car at Cape Town I. Airport, there was an attempt to charge me for insurance when I went into the office to get an invoice of my charges. There was an initial claim that they had to get George to approve removing the insurance but could not get anyone to answer there. Even the manager kept insisting that George would have to approve removing the charge. Finally a knowledgeable agent stepped in and noted that my contract had no signing for insurance and she knew how to remove the charge. None of this problem should have ever occurred, and I was only saved from a charge because I went in to ask for an invoice. I had been advised to do this by a friend who also told me that the rental car staff had recommended that you always do this in South Africa.

1.9 Poor

I've been charged 8703 ZAR for a car I rented, whereas on the agreement, the expected charges were 3209 ZAR. I have no way to contact the agency.
