KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Plettenberg Bay

  • Car hire in Plettenberg Bay offers you a level of flexibility that you don’t get with other modes of transport. Not only can you drive directly to your destination, but you can also don’t need to abide by the schedules of public transport. For example, you can drive to Knysna in about 30min. This journey isn’t possible using public transport, so you would have to wait for a taxi to complete this journey.
  • George Airport (GRJ) is one of the nearest terminals to Plettenberg Bay. Boasting a range of car hire companies, you’ll be able to get the perfect vehicle for your journey. Once you’ve passed through immigration and collected your bags, it’s easy to locate the car hire companies. For example, Keddy and Budget are conveniently located in the Arrivals Hall. Once you’ve shown your identification and completed the required paperwork, your Plettenberg Bay car hire provider will take payment and escort you to your hire car.
  • Using a car hire in Plettenberg Bay, you will see that it’s a popular seaside town in South Africa. In general, drivers are respectful and follow the road laws in this town, which is great for those that are using a hire car. Whilst jaywalking is a crime in South Africa, it’s not always a law that’s followed, especially by unknowing tourists who cross the roads in areas that aren’t pedestrian crossings. So keep an eye out for this when driving in the town centre. You should also check your mirrors regularly, as you’ll be sharing the road with lots of mopeds.
  • When driving a Plettenberg Bay hire car, you will see the roads get very busy, particularly during the peak season when tourists and locals flock to the wonderful beaches. The roads also get busy with locals driving to and from work on weekdays. Rush hour is normally between 5:30 and 10:00 and 15:00 to 18:30. If you want to avoid busy roads, it’s best to stay clear of them during these times. Marine Way is one of the busiest roads in the town. If you want to drive on a quieter road, you can try a back road such as Park Lane.
  • Book your car hire in Plettenberg Bay at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
