Reliable driver/car to hire


We will be in Sandton this July and will need the services of a reliable driver and car for 4-5 hours. We will be 4 adults (including one elderly lady) and 2 children and will probably have 2 or 3 stops including lunch. Does anyone have any suggestions?

You'll need to hire a van, not a car, for that number of passengers.

What you are asking for is known as a "disposal", where the vehicle and driver are at the clients' disposal, for a set number of hours, as opposed to "point to point", or a tour..

Avis offer the service, and probably other companies as well.

Some tour and transfer operators also offer the service, and it is usually charged per hour, plus the rate for the hire of the vehicle

Google is your friend.'

Here is the Avis link, which I found by 'Googling"
