Car Rental South Africa
After leaving one of Budget's car rental locations in South Africa the country is yours to explore. There is, however, some essential information that you should know about before setting off. When using your rental car to travel across the major cities, a toll will generally be charged for the journey; toll booths take both credit card and cash payments although prices vary immensely.
If driving in more rural areas it is advisable to stay alert as wildlife and domestic animals cause many accidents in the country. In terms of speed limits the national limit for freeways and major roads is 120 kph (75 mph), secondary roads carry a limit of 100 kph (60 mph) and in built up areas the maximum speed is 60 kph (35 mph).
