Rental car or bying

by zkeeennie

Hey guys,

Great that you're all answering so quick.

Sorry for all the questions but I wanna be wel informed. A car would be nice but how much would it cost to rent one ( and could we rent one for example in Johannesburg and leave it in Capetown). Or would it be possible to buy a cheap car and before you leave you sell it. Possible price?

Any more information about Pretoria would also be nice.

Thanks everybody

Re: Rental car or bying

I wonder if people who are not residents in South Africa can legally buy (and register) a car over here?

Look at the avis website. I think they allow you to drop the car off at a different destination.
I"'m not sure if it will cost extra.

Re: Rental car or bying

by Gerald_D

Sometimes you can even negotiate a discount for dropping off the car at another point. The Cape Town / Port Elizabeth route is an example. Most tourists fly into PE and then drive to Cape Town and somehow the cars must get back to PE. The different hire companies handle this in different ways, but normally the end fee to the customer shows that it is cheaper to drive out of Cape Town than in to Cape Town.

Buying a car in South Africa?
Here is the page from DriveAfrica's website that motivates why one should use their service:

Maybe that page is slightly over the top, but it is basically accurate.

Travel Tips for Pretoria

Packing List

by antz

When in Pretoria, just make sure you do have a camera as there are so many things to take photos of. The most beautiful scene I saw was down Church St which is lined with Jackoranda trees. For those who don't know what they are, they are beautiful trees with purple flowers...very pretty! By the way, Christopher Columbus took these trees to South Africa, or so they say!

A. From Aborad by Plane to...

by kenHuocj

A. From Aborad by Plane to Johannesburg International then 45 minutes to Pretoria

B. If from other Major SA Cities,
plane, Bus, train drive yourself in.
A.Traffic not congested outside short peak hours,
roads reasonably well signposted,
with main thoroughfares usually 4 lanes (2 each direction);
Therefore consider renting a car.
eg. Welcome to Khaya, where we are empowering our people in our new South Africa part of Eurocar / Imperial Car hire

B. Bus services below fair

C. Taxis are pricey
unless you consider using Ubuntu [peoples] Taxis
for everyday travelling, without your big and
valuable items, it is a great opportunity to meet
then Ubuntu ;-)

D. Get through to somebody via VT members,
then get one of their friends to drive you around
for whole day at negotiated rate.
Suprisingly driver/guides may be very well educated
but have been retrenched or prematurely retired ;-(

The Voortrekker Monument

by MikeAtSea

In 1938 this massive monument was build to commemorate the Treck of the Boers northwards from the Cape Province. Every year on the 16th of December a beam of sunlight shines through the ceiling onto a coffin in the basement that says: “Ons vir jou Suid Afrika” a phrase of Die Stem the old South African national anthem. It remembers the day 16 December 1838 when 470 Boers defeated approximately 12.000 Zulus. Three trekkers were wounded with 3000 Zulus killed. A staircase to the top of the building offers panoramic views over the entire city of Pretoria.

Watch boating on Rhoodeplaat dam

by nora_south_africa

Pack a picnic basket, or meat for a Braai ( BBQ) and go to Rhoodeplaat dam over weekend to watch boating, a lovely relaxing day, locals love to do this. remember we braai with a ( braai rooster) you can buy at most big supermarkets. If you are visiting SA it would be good to buy a small ' braai rooster" anyway, cause we got lots outdoor life here, alternate you can take a gas braai.

MELROSE HOUSE

by CharleneP

The Melrose house, is designed in 1886, is one of the best surviving examples of Victorian architecture in South Africa, and is well worth a visit. In this house on May 31, 1902 was signed the Peace Treaty, between the Republican forces and the British High Command, which ended the Second War of Independence.
