Customer questions about Witbank car hire

I want to know if this price of R177.00 per day is the only cost for this car a day in Witbank, it is for my daughter who is 24.

Hi, I have checked this for you and all the car rental suppliers in Witbank will apply a yound driver surcharge as your daughter is under 25. This varies by supplier but I can check this for you. The fee is payable to the rental agent on arrival and not to Rhino. We do offer a yound driver discount however that will hopefully help and I would gladly apply this for you now.

Useful things to know about Witbank

  • The name Witbank means ‘white ridge’ and was named after the sandstone outcrop where passing wagons would stop to rest horses
  • It was founded in 1890 after coal deposits were found in the area. The town struggled to exploit its new-found wealth until the arrival of the railway.
  • The town gained fame for hiding Winston Churchill after his escape from a Boer concentration camp and then helping him complete his escape

Witbank Mini Guide

What can you Tell me About Witbank?
The town was renamed in 2006 to eMalahleni which means ‘place of coal’ although the old name, Witbank is still in common use. The town developed around coal deposits discovered in the 19th century but the absence of suitable transport meant that only small quantities could be moved from the area, usually by wagon. The arrival of the railway changed all that and the town grew dramatically. The city is expanding rapidly due to the success of commerce but the infrastructure is failing to keep up, causing local disquiet. The town and surrounding region are also prone to heavy rain and flash floods which cause severe damage to the road system.

Witbank Railway

How do I get Into Witbank?
Sixty miles away from Witbank is OR Tambo airport, the closest international airport. Flights from Europe, the Middle East and other parts of Africa use OR Tambo so getting to the region from abroad is easy. Daily flights from London are available with BA and South African Airlines. Onward transport involves a series of connected bus journeys so if you want to avoid the hassle, you’d be advised to consider booking a hire car online to collect from OR Tambo airport.
What is There to Do in Witbank?
Witbank is close to the Kruger National Park and is often used as a base for exploring it. The eMalahleni Dam nearby is one of the biggest in South Africa and has an attractive outlook although the facilities there have been downgraded in recent years.
