Harrismith Car Rental Mini Guide

Harrismith has much in the city to attract tourists, but it is outside the city that its real highlights begin. We recommend the hire of an inexpensive 4 x 4 vehicle from Harrismith car hire to see the heights and sights safely. Whilst 4 x 4 cars are traditionally expensive to hire, we are sure you will be surprised at the price of our car hire in Harrismith. 
 
Whilst Harrismith has its own airport, it is tiny and flights in and out are limited to general aviation. The closest alternative airports are Ladysmith Airport, around an hour away from Harrismith which takes chartered flights and Newcastle Airport, around seventy miles away and which again has only charter flights to the airport. The nearest major airports are in Durban and Johannesburg, around two to three hours away. With these distances, long distance buses are available for connections but it is far more convenient, and often safer, to hire a car and drive the route yourself.
