Once you pass the age of 75 years old, some suppliers do not offer car hire to you. We think this is wrong and regardless of your age you should still be able to hire a car for your holiday. We offer senior driver car hire; this means you can hire a car all the way up until your 99 years old.

Young Driver Car Hire Johannesburg

Hiring a car as a young driver can prove to be very difficult as suppliers either will not allow you to hire a car or will charge you an extortionate amount. We have arranged young driver car hire that allows drivers from the age of 18 years old to hire a car. For this offer you must have held your licence for at least 1 year. As a young driver depending on your age you may be charged a young driver surcharge, however this will be kept to a minimum and you will know about it before you book.

To verify if your card complies with these restrictions, please get in contact with our team directly.
