Choose a car class to find out approximate rental price

A viable car, a massive 4x4, or a hasty hatchback, choose the car you need to calculate the rental cost.

In addition, the price depends on the point where you are planning to pick up the car. Pay attention to this to make the trip more advantageous.

How to get an additional discount in South Africa

Before choosing a car and booking, check the list of special offers and deals on the cars-scanner website. They may help you save a significant amount. In addition, early booking will help you optimise costs; many rental companies give additional discounts to those who book the rental 2-6 months before the trip.

You may cancel the booking free of charge 24 hours before the start of the rental time, in this case, the money will be returned to your account in full.

Cancellation and modification of order without penalties within 24 hours

You may book a car in advance; and if your plans change, you will be free to cancel your booking 24 hours before the start of the rental time. This is the standard contract condition.

In the case of cancellation within the next 24 hours, you will be charged a fee of 50 EUR.

Compensation for cancellation on the day of booking is not provided; in this case, you will be charged the full amount for the entire rental time.

To cancel the order, use the special form on the website.


Age restrictions

If you are a driver aged 25 to 65, consider yourself lucky. As a rule, it is this renter's age that establishes the strongest trust at a provider's office and is will result in your being charged at basic rates. Drivers under 25 and over 65 are often forced to pay an extra charge, whether there is an increasing factor and to what extent, you may find out on our website in the Age Restrictions section.

Insurance options

When booking, you will be offered several options for car insurance. For a quiet trip, cars-scanner recommends that you take out a full insurance policy, which covers almost all possible damages. You may do this on our website or at the rental company office.

Each car has its own set of features, which are indicated in the insurance document. Be careful when taking it and read through the Insurance Cover section to insure yourself against further surprises.  Example:

I have been using this site to search and pay for car rental for many years.

I was doing quite a bit of travelling a few months ago and was renting cars all around the place. On one of my many trips my flight was severely delayed and I lost my car rental reservation. Carscanner customer service were very helpful with the matter and found me a new rental right in time. Very impressive and efficient service.
