Use TravelSupermarket to find cheap car hire in East London and hit the open road to have an African adventure...
Located on the south-east coast of South Africa, East London is a little known gateway to some of this country's most sublime beauty spots. With the glorious beaches of the Sunshine Coast sprawling to the south, and the forests and nature reserves of the Wild Coast off to the north, East London car hire is a must if you plan to dive into everything that this lovely corner of South Africa has to offer.
Don't go anywhere just yet though. East London can also show you a thrilling time. It's got an abundance of cultural and historical highlights as well as excellent surf beaches.
The built up area of East London is roughly the same size as England's Sheffield. Public transport is reasonable here, but a hire car will enable you to reach the most alluring tourism spots, which are spread far and wide around the city and coast. East London might be famed as South Africa's only river port, but it's the beaches that get visitors talking. Nahoon Reef is one of the most popular surf spots. This stretch of sand and swell is on the edge of the city and a 15-minute drive from the heart of East London.
Other places not to be missed include the East London Aquarium, the East London Museum, and the Gately House Museum.
The average daily temperature rarely drops below 20C at any time of the year, with the southern hemisphere winter months of June to September providing the driest season, albeit with lower temperatures.
Book car hire in advance of your visit to save money. You can arrange to collect your pre-booked vehicle at East London Airport (ELS), which is a 20-minute drive from the city centre or at a rental office in the downtown area.
