    South Africa Driving Tips

    Most of the motorways in South Africa are toll roads and we advise that you check your route before setting off. That way you can make sure you have some coins in the vehicle to pay for the tolls.

    When driving you must carry with you at all times your driving licence and the rental hire documents.
