KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Umhlanga

  • You can avoid making numerous transfers or waiting for transportation by travelling directly to your desired destinations when you opt for car hire in Umhlanga. It is beneficial if you want to make the most of your sightseeing opportunities or have limited time. Using an Umhlanga car hire, you can also travel to remote or difficult-to-reach locations that need to be better served by public transportation. You have the freedom to visit places off the grid, which might need to be more complex to reach using other public transport means. Among the locations you can visit in your car hire in Umhlanga is the Umhlanga Lagoon Nature Reserve located 6 km (3.7 miles) from the town centre, and will take you approximately 10 minutes to complete the journey.
  • For those opting to fly into Umhlanga, there are a couple of airports you can use. These airports include the Durban King Shaka Intl Airport (DUR), Pietermaritzburg Airport (PZB), and Richards Bay Airport (RCB). For those who wish to acquire a car hire in Umhlang, a couple of hire car companies are located within the airport's Arrival Terminal. It will take approximately 10 minutes to complete the paperwork and drive out of the airport in your hire car.
  • Several important factors to consider when driving your car hire in Umhlanga to guarantee a secure and enjoyable experience. Make sure to go on the left-hand side of the road in South Africa, as it is the standard. On the right side of the car is the driver's seat. Be cautious of wildlife crossing the road when driving in rural or nature reserve areas close to Umhlanga, especially at dawn and dusk. To prevent collisions, pay attention to road signs alerting you to animal crossings and maintain a safe speed. Be alert to weather conditions affecting your driving ability, such as hail, fog, or strong winds. In bad weather, adjust your driving style accordingly and drive cautiously.
  • During the weekdays, when residents of Umhlanga are commuting to and from work, the city experiences peak traffic hours.
