Car Hire Johannesburg

Whether you require Johannesburg based car hire services for commercial or leisure reasons, you will appreciate the extensive fleet and variety of classes available from Woodford. In addition, low prices, complete information to ensure information decision making, and professional service make us the preferred car rental company for the major cities.

Cheap Car Hire Rates

More often than not, people make use of specials or book vehicles at low rates, just to be disappointed with all the hidden fees. Not so when booking with The Woodford Group. Our fees quoted on the site don’t include VAT, but do in include the standard insurance cover. We make it easy to compare prices with daily rates shown, minimum days of rental on a package, and mileage which is included.


The lowest car hire rates for Johannesburg can be obtained when you pick the vehicle up and return to the same office within normal business hours. In addition, savings can be guaranteed when booking for longer. Decide beforehand whether you will want to make use of the unlimited mileage package or whether you will drive less than 150 km a day. If you don’t plan on driving to Pretoria and surrounding cities, the 100 km or 150 km packages will be fine. Longer rentals also have better daily rates.


Extras such as a GPS system will add to the cost, but considering the sheer nightmare of getting lost in a city such as Johannesburg, it may very well be worth it. Another way you can save on rental rates for car hire in the Gold City is to make use of the specials regularly advertised at our site. In addition, for frequent travellers, we offer the Loyalty program. Membership will allow you to get specials, discounts on rentals, access to preferential services and more.

Johannesburg Tourist Locations

It is not all business and no joy in the busy city of Johannesburg. With the low car hire rates offered by us, it is possible to explore this jewel in the heart of Gauteng without having to be concerned about extra costs associated with rental.

Gold Reef City

You cannot say that you have been to Johannesburg without at least a stop at Gold Reef City. Located in the South of the city, it is easy accessible from the OR Tambo Airport by highway. It celebrates the gold history of the city with a reconstructed and rather stylish classical gold town. Many museums and restaurants can be visited while gift shops also explored. There is a hotel and a casino, but the main attraction is the theme park, equalled only by Ratanga Junction in Cape Town.


It features some the scariest rides ever while family fun is never a bore. With several rides for the whole family, a log to wet you from head to toe and a patting zoo for the small ones, everyone can have fun. Even the ones who want to explore the depths of a mine can do so at this amazing entertainment world.

Apartheid Museum

Next to Gold Reef City is the Apartheid Museum, which is a must visit for anyone who is interested in knowing a bit about the contemporary African history of South Africa.

Rooftop at Rosebank

If you are in Johannesburg over the weekend, and you may very well be with the low car hire rates offered by us, you should also visit the rooftop market at Rosebank on Sundays where you will find the weird and wonderful as well as odd gifts. Fire dance equipment, swords, clothing and foods are sold.


It is white and easily seen from the highway. Take the Jan Smuts off-ramp and make your way to the Wits Planetarium where you can do a bit of stargazing.

Johannesburg Zoo

Located in the Northern parts of the city, the zoo offers good old family fun. It has a stunning lay-out and features a wide variety of animals. The War Museum’s entrance is just on the other side.


With the low Johannesburg car hire rates you will be able to not only explore the above places because you saved on vehicle rental, but even travel to Pretoria and Midrand for more discoveries.
