HERTZ RENT A CAR operates as an international franchisee of the global Hertz Corporation throughout southern Africa.

The Hertz brand has been driving the corporate, government and leisure car rental markets in South Africa since 1950 and continues to be a respected and instantly recognizable brand in the vehicle rental sector. Since 1 October 2015 the company has held Level Two Contributor Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment status.

We are proud to be a division of Unitrans Automotive, a major vehicle dealer group that operates across a network of over 80 dealerships and specializes in a broad range of motor and related products and services: from the sale of new and used passenger cars and commercial vehicles, through to vehicle service, parts and accessories.


Hertz currently has over 42 branches strategically located at major hubs throughout South Africa with the opening of a further seven locations at Gautrain stations imminent. Hertz has five locations in Namibia and, in 2014, we expanded our southern African footprint to include Zimbabwe where we have locations in Harare International Airport and Victoria Falls.

Since May 2015, the Hertz brand has had a strong presence at four strategic locations in Botswana namely Gaborone’s Sir Seretse Khama International Airport which is the main gateway to the country, in downtown Gaborone and at Maun and Francistown airports. A fifth location is opening in downtown Kasane shortly.


From city runabouts and holiday hatchbacks to luxury sedans, people carriers, sporty SUVs or 4x2 and 4x4 single and double cabs, we pride ourselves on operating a diverse passenger car and bakkie fleet aged on average 12 months or less.

In addition to self-drive rental, we offer professional chauffeur drive and transfer services at select locations countrywide. Through our association with Unitrans Automotive, Hertz is also able facilitate coach charters.

As of April 2016, our fleet comprised 19 vehicle category groups spread across 18 makes and 121 models, with Hertz the only car rental company in South Africa offering air conditioning as a standard in every one of our vehicles. Unlike most other car rental companies, Hertz does not impose a Young Driver surcharge. So, for young driver customers 18 years and over in possession of their own credit cards, renting a car from Hertz is easier than ever.

Gold Plus Rewards Loyalty Program

Hertz’s Gold Plus Rewards (GPR) program delivers faster and easier car rental that allows its members to skip the counter at over 50 airports around the world. Additionally, at over 4 000 locations worldwide, renters can simply show their driver licence and pick up their keys.

At the international 2016 FlyerTalk Awards, the Hertz GPR loyalty program was named the Best Rewards Program in the ‘Drive’ category across the Americas, Europe/Africa and Middle East/Asia/Oceania for the fifth consecutive year. The program also received the Outstanding Benefits recognition globally.

Value-Add Products and Services
  • An optional value add-on to Hertz’s rental agreement is the Hertz Emergency Rescue Option (HERO). Priced at a nominal daily rate, in the event of an accident or sudden onset of a life-threatening medical event, HERO’s Emergency Medical Transport Services are there to answer our customers’ distress calls.
  • Hertz 30Thirty Plus is a program offering a substantially discounted rate to rentals in excess of 30 days in duration. This product is particularly well-suited to contract workers, expats home for a holiday, employees with car allowances, long-term visitors and tourists and small business owners not wanting to go the long-term finance route.
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi at major airport locations.
  • The popular Fuel Upfront payment option saves customers from the hassle of filling the tank before returning their rental vehicles to us.
  • Value-add rental options for customer safety, protection and convenience also include: GPS, bicycle holders, carriers, and child safety seats.
