Why hire or rent a car?

When you are planning a trip to Europe, Australia, the USA or worldwide, a self drive holiday gives you the freedom and flexibility to travel at your own pace. Have you ever wanted to drive the Garden Route to explore the South African coast, what better reason to hire a car. You make the decisions about your travel destinations, not someone else. In addition, divide the cost of your self drive holiday by the number of passengers and you will be surprised how low the cost per person is!

Choosing the right vehicle.

MyCarHire is a leader in the car hire Industry and we know our services and what our clients need. Your first thought should be how many people are travelling and how much space do you require for your luggage. Don't forget the height and weight of the passengers, number and ages of children for child seat requirements. The length of the rental period, planned time being spent actually in the car and the driving conditions to plan in advance for a convertible or the need for snow chains.

How to book.

We recommend that you book your car hire in advance to make your journey stress free. All we need to know is what size car is required and the date and location that you would like to pick up and return your vehicle. It really is that simple!
