    Rental Car Age Requirements in South Africa

    To rent a car in South Africa you must be at least 18 years old and have held your driver's license for a minimum of 1 year. Some suppliers in South Africa do have a minimum age requirement of 21 or 23 years old but there are multiple suppliers who work with Auto Europe who will rent cars to travelers 18 and over. With most rental suppliers in South Africa, any driver under the age of 23 or 25 will incur an additional young driver surcharge added on to the daily rate of the vehicle. If you are under the age of 25 and looking for a rental car in South Africa, give one of our knowledgeable agents a call. We have 24/7 live customer support at 1-888-223-5555.

    South Africa Rental Car License Requirements

    Travelers from the US will be pleased that the South African government accepts any valid driver's license provided it contains a photograph and signature of the license holder and is printed or authenticated in English. With this said, travelers may find some car rental suppliers who require international travelers to acquire an international driver's permit (IDP) in order to rent a car. Always check with Auto Europe or with your rental supplier directly on the company policy. IDP's can be obtained locally at your nearest AAA branch office for $20 USD. Auto Europe always recommends travelers to pick-up an IDP before they travel to avoid any potential issues with local law enforcement who may not speak much if any english.
