Kayak SucksNothingI had a confirmed email saying the rental was booked, when I flew in after 24 hours of travel Thrifty tells me they didn’t have a car for me. I will never use Kayak for a car rental again. Ever. It’s a busy time of the year, no one else had cars available. Imagine flying in to a town and being left stranded at the airport. This will happen to you if you use Kayak and Thifty.

Top tips for hiring a car in Port Elizabeth

  • Public transport is very limited in Port Elizabeth, and it becomes even more limited if you wish to make day trips outside of the city, so hiring a car is a good idea. It’s also a good way to limit your costs if you intend on checking out nearby safari tours, where you can use your own car as opposed to paying for a guided tour. Utilising car hire in Port Elizabeth will allow you to travel around the city and visit its attractions at your leisure.
  • The desks for car hire in Port Elizabeth Airport (PLZ) are conveniently located directly outside the international terminal. Port Elizabeth's airport is also small, so it should be easy to navigate. The airport is the easiest place to collect your car, as it is the only place in the city where all the major car hire services are located. You can book your Port Elizabeth car hire in advance through KAYAK and know that it will be waiting for you on your arrival.
  • You will be able to drive on an Australian driver's licence in Port Elizabeth. Some hire car companies will have policies about how long you need to have held a driver's licence before booking with them, so be sure to check ahead. Petrol stations in Port Elizabeth are generally serviced by an attendant as opposed to being self-serve, and it is customary to tip R 5-10 (A$ 0.48 - A$ 0.95). Additionally, if you are asking locals for directions, be aware that traffic lights are usually referred to as ‘robots’.
  • At night, it is important to be on the lookout for wildlife, especially if you are driving on the outskirts of Port Elizabeth. It is often common for pedestrians to walk along the roads here, as it tends to be quiet, so we recommend you slow down when driving in low visibility. If you encounter any large wildlife blocking your path, the safest course of action is to remain in your vehicle and wait for them to move past. It is also recommended that you ensure your windows and doors are locked, particularly when stopped at traffic lights.
