Car hire in October 2015

We will have 2 days to spend in Plettenberg Bay in October this year. We're thinking about hiring a car & seeing the local surroundings, but I'm not sure if to book it now, or wait until we get there & do it on the day.

We're not too fussed about the type of car, but it should be an automatic.

Do you think it's to risky to wait until we're there to arrange the hire? I'm not sure how busy or big Plett is, and wonder if we may miss out if we don't book ahead?

What do you think?

You must book ahead - it is usually cheaper that way and Plett is not a large city so you may not get what you want at the last minute.

I'll be in Plettsberg in November and was trying to find out about local car rentals. Please share what you learn/experience.

Definitely book ahead if you want an automatic. They are not popular here.
