Rent an Economy Compact Car in South Africa

A compact car, supermini or small city car… whatever name you give it, this is the most economical car you can rent in South Africa. Ideal for couples, small families or city driving, not only are compact city cars the cheapest rental category, you will also find that these simple little run around cars keep fuel costs to a minimum. Look out for cars that deliver a good fuel economy (65 mpg being a good return, 80mpg is excellent), such as the manual transmission Volkswagen Polo with a diesel engine that delivers 74.3mpg or the Peugeot 308 Hdi, a great little small family car that delivers an impressive 79mpg. The Peugeot 107 and the Toyota Aygo are also reliable low price small cars, so choose a supermini with excellent fuel efficiency and find out for yourself how much money you can save.

Family Car Hire at Cheaper Rental Rates

If you are travelling with a family and luggage, or are planning to travel long distances, a mid-size or full-size car is what you need. You can find cheap mid-size cars to hire in South Africa, including the Toyota Auris Hybrid and the sporty Hyundai i30 automatic tdi. The larger Toyota Prius Hybrid is also a good option, delivering an impressive fuel economy of 83.1mpg, saving you money on your gas. Other cheaper full-size cars include the Volkswagen Passat and the Mercedes C Class, giving you the space and comfort you need for a long journey whilst you reduce rental costs and petrol consumption.

Low Price 7 seater Car Hire

For travels with a large group, hiring a 7 seater minivan is probably the cheapest option. 7 seater cars come in a range of shapes and sizes, from the most economical 5+2 estate car up to a larger 7 seater MPV or minivan. If you are travelling with children, a 5+2 stationwagon is probably your cheapest option, such as the Peugeot 307 Wagon (with Sat Nav). The additional seats are ideal for kids, but not always suitable for adults and long distances, and you may need to consider a larger MPV or minivan. A compact MPV will be the lowest price 7 seater rental and recommended models include the Peugeot 508 5+2 TDI and the Volkswagen Touran 5+2.

Renting a Minivan or People Carrier in South Africa is the cheapest way to transport 8 or more people, and you can take advantage of the great deals that Bingo Car Rental can offer online. The Chevrolet Spin is a simple yet stylish and comfortable 8 passenger MPV, the 9 seater diesel Fiat Scudo is an economical minivan, whilst for larger groups, the 12 seater Hyundai H1 delivers a great performance and excellent fuel economy. If you are planning a long road trip or a weekend in the country, a Toyota Previa Campervan rental might be the cheapest option for you, providing you with the freedom to travel in comfort and style, as well as an affordable, comfortable and safe place to sleep.

SUV and 4x4 Car Rental at Budget Prices

If it is an off-road vehicle you are looking for, or an impressive sporty looking SUV, then find out what cheap deals are available on SUV and 4x4 hire. If you want to save money on fuel costs, an SUV won’t be as fuel efficient as a subcompact car, but there are some SUV’s that will deliver more than 50mpg, including the manual Volkswagen Tiguan Diesel and the crossover SUV Nissan Qashqai Diesel. For a larger 4x4, the Range Rover Evoque or the BMW X3 also deliver a good fuel economy and are both reliable, safe and practical 4x4’s, ideal for family vacations and off road adventures.
