Cross Border Car Rental into Africa

Cross border car rental into African countries include Zimbabwe, Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland, Namibia and Mozambique*. Are you from any of these countries but now living overseas? Are you looking for a South African car rental company that allows their cars to travel into Africa?

Pace Car Rental Johannesburg now allows cross border vehicle hire from South Africa into Zimbabwe, Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland, Namibia and Mozambique*. It’s cheaper to drive than to fly to Zimbabwe, Harare, for example and with our cross border kit you will easily be able to drive in Zimbabwe and the other countries with no troubles. We charge the same price for the cross border fee regardless of whether you go via Botswana or direct through Beitbridge. When wanting to visit home you would more than likely fly to Johannesburg, rent a car and then drive to Zimbabwe. Unfortunately most car hire companies don’t allow their vehicles to cross into Zimbabwe and all the above mentioned countries, but Pace Car Rental does!

Although we do not have an office at Johannesburg International O.R Tambo airport, we can meet you at international arrivals or departures and hand your vehicle over to you so long as you have a credit card. The same goes for the return of your vehicle. Please let us know in advance and we will allocate your booking to a car with a larger trunk / boot, we know there is always lots to take home!
