Drive South Africa Offers GPS South Africa Service for Car Hire Customers

Leading car hire agency Drive South Africa now offers GPS enabled vehicles as an added service for customers, complete with up to date maps for an optimal self-drive experience.

Cape Town, South Africa, February 24, 2010 --( Drive South Africa offers customers a GPS South Africa service as an added option on hired vehicles. As one of the country’s top car rental companies, Drive South Africa has been providing travellers with affordable and flexible vehicles to hire for a number of years. Customers are able to choose from a range of vehicle options ranging from small Citi Golf models to larger 4x4 Land Rover models and even campers. Pricing options from daily rentals to long-term rentals; and customers are able to choose an insurance or mileage plan depending on their budgets and requirements. The GPS service comes complete with South African maps that are pre-programmed into the device, which ensures that self-driver travellers are able to get around the country easily and safely.

Andre Van Kets of Drive South Africa says, “Many of our car rental clients have their own Tom-Toms or GPS units, but they do not necessarily have the latest maps of South Africa loaded onto their devices. By renting a GPS with your car you are guaranteed of having all the essential map data for your trip around South Africa.”

With the FIFA World Cup just a few short months away, many tourists will be making their first visit to South Africa. While some may choose to stick to organised tours during the duration of the World Cup games, and others may have their own transport during their stay, many are considering self-drive as a convenient and flexible way to get from one city to the next. Drive South Africa has already seen an increase in the number of car hire bookings, and these numbers are set to reach an all-time high between June and July once the games commence. Vehicles with included GPS devices offer the safest and most effective option, preventing delays and ensuring that customers get where they need to go quickly and easily.

Customers have the option to choose the GPS South Africa service on all car models, at an additional cost. As all rental packages are tailor-made according to the customer’s preference of car type, duration of the hire, insurance or mileage and additional services they may require, customers are able to choose the services they need the most. Bookings can be made online, or at the Drive South Africa offices in the Cape Town CBD, allowing travellers to organise their travel plans in advance or on the spot. Rental consultants and travel specialists are also able to advise customers on a wide range of travel bookings in addition to vehicle rentals, and even accommodation can be easily booked through Drive South Africa.

To book a GPS enabled car, simply ask a Drive South Africa rental consultant about this service, or choose this service when booking online. For more information on Drive South Africa’s car rental options, visit
