KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Upington

  • Using car hire in Upington offers the convenience of exploring at your own pace. While public transport options are limited, companies like Keddy by Europcar and Budget Car Rental provide reliable services. Did you know that tuk-tuks are a popular mode of transport in Upington? But they aren't a great choice if you are hoping to explore places a bit further away, or are travelling with luggage or a larger group. With a car, you can easily visit attractions like the Kalahari-Oranje Museum and Augrabies Falls National Park, which are not accessible by public transport in safety and convenience.
  • Once you've decided on car hire in Upington, and are arriving by plane at Upington Airport (UTN), make your way to the main terminal building. Once inside, head towards the Arrivals area. You will find the car hire desks located near the exits of the terminal. Look out for Avis Car Hire, Budget Car Rental, and Hertz Car Hire, which are popular companies operating at this airport. After completing the necessary paperwork at the desks, you can easily walk to the car park, which is conveniently situated just outside the terminal building. The distance by car from Upington Airport (UTN) to the city centre is approximately 6 km (3.7 miles), and the journey usually takes around 10 minutes.
  • When driving in Upington, be cautious of pedestrians in the city centre and cyclists in areas like Scott Street and Du Toit Street. The road conditions in Upington are generally good, with well-maintained highways and roads. However, some drivers tend to be aggressive, so practise defensive driving. Enjoy the scenic routes, wide-open spaces and more relaxed driving atmosphere while exploring the outlands of the Green Kalahari region with your Upington car hire.
  • Rush hour in Upington is from 7:00 to 9:00 and 16:30 to 18:00, particularly affecting Nelson Mandela Drive and Schroder Street. During the summer months, the heat can make driving uncomfortable, so make sure your hire car has air conditioning. In winter, be cautious of potential morning frost on the roads. A unique issue you may encounter while driving a car hire in Upington is the presence of wildlife near the roads. Upington is located in the Green Kalahari region, which is known for its diverse wildlife. While driving, you may come across animals such as springboks, ostriches, or even zebras crossing the road.
  • Book your rental car in Upington at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Upington are around 37% cheaper than other car types, on average

    When considering car hire in Upington, we recommend a compact SUV or a sedan. The city has wide streets, but an SUV will provide better handling on gravel roads, if you plan to explore the surrounding areas. A sedan is a good option for city driving and manoeuvring through traffic. Keep in mind that some streets in the city centre, like Schröder Street, are known for being narrow.

  • What's the speed limit in Upington?

    The speed limit in Upington is generally 60 km/h (37 mph) in urban areas and 120 km/h (75 mph) on major roads, unless otherwise stated. Pay attention to signage as speed limits can vary. Speed cameras are in place, and if you are caught exceeding the speed limit in a car hire vehicle, you may face penalties and fines. Some of the common locations where speed cameras are often placed include Nelson Mandela Drive, the main road in Upington, as well as along major highways like the N10 and N14.

  • Where are the best places to park in Upington?

    In Upington, you will find both free and paid parking options. The city centre has metered street parking, which typically costs around 10 ZAR per hour (approximately 0.5 GBP). Alternatively, parking lots like the Kalahari Mall Parking Garage and the Upington CBD Car Park offer secure paid parking options. Outside the city centre, there are plenty of free parking spaces available.
