  Tips for SA Airlink Passengers Renting Cars


All drivers who wish to rent a car in South Africa — regardless of age — must have held their license for at least 3 years.


The primary renter and driver must present a credit card in his/her name when picking up the vehicle. Debit and prepaid cards are not accepted. The credit card must have available funds to cover the excess deposit, which will be put on “hold” until the end of the rental period. Meanwhile, the same card must be used to pay for additional fees and equipment purchased at the counter.


If you get caught speeding on camera or use a toll road with electronic toll collection, it could be several weeks before your car hire provider gets in touch with you. You’ll not only be on the hook for paying the infraction, but also the company’s administration fee.


You can avoid a one-way rental fee by renting and returning your airline car rental to the same location. However, you must notify the provider in advance if you want to drop the car at a different location. In such cases, you’ll pay the one-way fee, in addition to a penalty.


You’ll be offered a modest selection of additional insurance coverage that are most likely duplicate the travel insurance of your credit card. Collision/Loss Damage Waivers and Theft Protection are always included in the rental, but catastrophic incidents of damage and theft are not covered. Check with your credit card issuer before signing up for any Excess Damage Waivers or personal liability insurance.


This can’t be stressed with too much emphasis: Read the terms and conditions of your rental agreement so you’re familiar with exclusions and limitations not otherwise promoted by the car hire company. For example, the CDW/LDW does not extend to tires, windshield, or undercarriage, and theft protection excludes personal belongings.
