KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Kimberley

  • Opting for car hire in Kimberley has several benefits compared to public transport. Using a car offers the freedom to explore various arts of Kimberley at your convenience. Since Kimberley has various historical and cultural attractions, using a car is easy and comfortable for accessing these attractions. You can quickly visit the Big Hole, McGregor Museum, Kamfers Dam, and Wildebeest Kuil Rock Art. The city is in the Diamond Fields region; therefore, a hire car will offer fast transit to various attractions outside the city limits, including the Barkly West, Magersfontein Battlefield, and Vaalharts Irrigation Scheme.
  • When hiring a car from the airport, consider hiring from Bram Fischer International Airport (BFN), informally Bloemfontein Airport, which has several companies offering car hire services. The car hires in Kimberley at Bloemfontein Airport include Hertz, Avis, Europcar, and Budget, and are located inside the main terminal. Ensure you have all the documents for the necessary paperwork at the Kimberley car hire company desks. Once you have all the documents checked for hiring the car, proceed to the car hire counters to complete the hiring process and pick up your car at the car park outside.
  • Driving in Kimberley is on the left-hand side. Be extra cautious for unexpected animals and pedestrians crossing the roads, especially near schools and residential areas. Kimberley has multiple roundabouts and traffic circles. Ensure you know the roundabout rules and yield to the vehicles already in the circle. Also, be aware that you have to indicate if you are exiting the circle properly. Driving drunk is prohibited in Kimberley. The legal blood alcohol limit is 0.05%, and if you have more alcohol content in your blood, you’ll incur penalties.
  • Kimberley is a small city and may not have heavy traffic. However, the rush hours in Kimberley begin at around 07:00 to 09:00 hours in the morning, and 16:00 to 18:00 hours late afternoon. Avoid Trans-Kalahari Highway N12 and Boshof Road R64, as they experience increased traffic during rush hours. Kimberley experiences heavy rainfall between October and March; therefore, when visiting around that time, adjust your driving, and hire a vehicle with increased visibility and stability.
  • Book your rental car in Kimberley at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Kimberley are around 33% cheaper than other car types, on average
