KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Sandton

  • With your own rental car, you will be able to explore Sandton and its surrounding areas with your own itinerary, without having to rely on public transport or waiting for cabs. Sandton is surrounded by beautiful landscapes and tourist destinations. Having a car hire in Sandton allows you to venture outside the city to explore nearby attractions like the Cradle of Humankind, Lion Park, and various game reserves.
  • O.R. Tambo International Airport (JNB) is located approximately 20 km east of Sandton. It is the largest and busiest airport in South Africa. It serves as the primary international and domestic gateway to Johannesburg and the surrounding areas. JNB Airport offers an on-site car park specifically designed for picking up and returning rental cars. Sandton car hire company offices including Europcar and Budget are conveniently located at the northern end of this car park area.
  • It is strongly recommended to book your car hire in Sandton well in advance to ensure access to a wide range of vehicles and optimal availability. This is particularly crucial in South Africa, especially during peak months (October and March) and summer when the demand for larger SUVs and 4x4 vehicles rises significantly. The surge in tourists visiting South Africa for vacations and safaris during these months leads to high demand for larger vehicles. Sandton is also known for its pedestrian activity, especially around shopping areas and business districts. Drivers need to be vigilant and watch out for pedestrians crossing the roads, as not all pedestrians may use designated crossings.
  • Sandton experiences heavy traffic congestion during typical rush hours, which are usually in the morning between 07:00 and 9:00 and in the evening between 16:00 and 18:30 on weekdays. During these times, major roads leading into and out of Sandton, as well as key intersections, are likely to be more congested. William Nicol Drive, which is a major road connecting Sandton to the N1 highway and Rivonia Road, which is a key route running through Sandton can be congested during rush hours.
  • Book your rental car in Sandton at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

1. The counter/car was not at the location stated 2. The new location is not 24/7 3. Although their email confirmation stated we could decline insurance, at the counter they added insurance without asking and insisted it was mandatory 4. The whole process was a colossal waste of time and energy as we ended up cancelling the reservation/transaction We ended up going to Hertz where we were treated politely and helped quickly. Insurance was not forced on us and we got the rate promised.
