HERTZ Car Rental Services at Johannesburg Airport

Johannesburg Airport, or what is today known as O.R Tambo International Airport, is the largest airport in South Africa, and also the largest on the whole continent of Africa. The airport handles over 21 million passenger per annum, and is a very important gateway to Johannesburg, the capital city of South Africa. Johannesburg Airport is also present on the list of 100 largest airports in the world. The airport was originally known as Jan Smuts Airport as well, and has the official airport code of JNB. The best way to travel in South Africa is by car, and therefore a number of car hire companies are at the airport. Hertz is available, and is the largest provider of car rental services in the world. Hertz is also popular for their competitive rental rates and wide range of unique car hire services.

The car hire companies at Johannesburg Airport can be found in the multi-storey parkade just opposite the domestic terminal building. Vehicles can be booked online, from Hertz’s website at www.hertz.co.za, or directly from the rental counters at O.R Tambo Airport. It is however recommended to make an advanced reservation, especially if you are in need of a certain type or size of vehicle.

Hertz at O.R Tambo International Airport, offers customers the services of Gold Counter facilities, delivery and collection options, 24 hour emergency roadside assistance, hand controls for disabled drivers, and the rental of GPS units, baby equipment, cellphones, laptops and 3G devices. Hand controls for physically challenged drivers are available free of charge, but should be reserved at least 48 hours before vehicle collection. These controls are specifically designed to assist drivers with a lower limb disability, and allow drivers to effectively manage the accelerator and brake pedals. There is also a steering wheel knob for easier manoeuvring, but the hand controls do not operate the blinkers, lights or windshield wipers. Hand controls are available for vehicles similar to the Volvo V70 and Volvo XC70.
