Have used them 3 or 4 times in the last few years. Always had good service from them, but never been sent to the same Hire Company twice

As a tip, watch out for Avis, they have a habit of auto sending out an invoice for fuel some 2/3 weeks after the car is returned.

Our friends always use them too, although we use Holiday Autos.
I know of no problems with either and both seem cheaper than going direct with the rental companies.

Many thanks for the link to DriveSouthAfrica and their website. Seems they have enough business as I have not received a reply to my email for a qoute dated Feb 29th.

Strange way to do business, but there ya go

Mites, need so advice here
Going to Kruger in October with my friends
5 persons and i want to rent a van
But seems that all vans these days do not have many passenger windows which can open for photography
Most only have 1 sliding on each side at the back
And i need 2 open windows for the passengers

Tip: A brick or hammer, after taking out insurance.
I know of not a single van(-like thing) that has it.

Or you should look at a large 4x4 or Touareg which is able to seat 5.

Bert I was just thinking( though angels shouldn't think ) But why dont you hire a large fairly high off the ground car ( we have a qashqai ) with large wind down windows. and I am sure where you come from every second person going on holiday has those roof carrier thingies So you have the comfort of a car with comfy seats and most of the luggage is on top. Can you hire those carirers in SA I wonder ???

4yrs ago we were in S.A. with the family (6 pers) and rented a VW-Microbus (T3) and loved it especially for the advantages on safari (everybody anywhere in the vehicle could enjoy open windows to see, hear, smell and photograph the wild). To my opinion this is f.e. not possiple in the Quantum-10 and/or VW-T5 or am I wrong?

Next year we're planning on visiting S.A. again with the same group and will be staying in the Limpopo/Mpumalanga-area and doing a lot of self-safari in Kruger etc. I'm looking for the T3-Microbus again. I have been googling myself silly but can't find it anymore as a rental.

Do you have any suggestions? Very important is that everybody in the vehicle (6 pers) can enjoy open windows on safari. What is THE vehicle to rent for 6 pers + luggage on safari?

Done the same thing and the minibusses do not longer have all windows which can be opened :roll:
I rented a Quantum
Has 2 on one side and on the other side 1 for the passengers
So some guys have to move from seat to seat.

Try the Nissan Primestar, it has all the windows that open. And it is comfy as well. :thumbs_up:

Thnx Bert & Scipio for the advice. The Nissan Primestar sounds good. I've just being trying to find them from J'burg, but also not so easy to find.

Anybody else ideas?

Hi,

I also have been using Car3000 for several years I have just rented one with them for our trip in November they have changed their name to rentalcars.com. We didn't come last year and I have just obtained a photo/paper driving licence, but certainly up to November 2010 we had no problems with the very old paper ones.
