South Africa Mobile Phone Rental

Free Mobile Phone Rental in South Africa


With selected car rental booked with Drive South Africa, we offer you a value added service of free mobile phone rental with the minimal costs of you paying for the daily insurance and the calls/sms/text messages you make. This only applies to car rental and collecting from Johannesburg or Cape Town.

All incoming calls and sms/text messages to your rental phone are free.

To take up this unique offer, all you need to do is make a car rental booking with Drive South Africa and indicate on your enquiry form (or tick the box on our online enquiry form) and we will make sure there is a local South African mobile phone ready for you to use when you collect your rental vehicle.

With your very own local mobile phone, you will never be short of communication.

Cheaper and easier to make local calls

Using a local South African mobile phone is far cheaper than an international mobile phone with International roaming enabled. Calls to local restaurants, hotels, tourist attractions and your South African friends and family will be cheaper and easier!

In most cases, International calls are cheaper too – making it a pleasure to call your family back home to let them know that you have arrived safely!
