Hit the road with British Airways and Avis

South Africa is awash with whales, lions and other natural wonders, but relying on public transport to see them can be hit and miss. So, load up on biltong and water, because this is the perfect place to explore by car. Fly directly into Johannesburg with British Airways, pick up your Avis car and hit the road.

Not only does the freedom of four wheels mean you can immerse yourself in majestic scenery and stop anywhere you please, but Avis offers the flexibility to pick up and drop off from different airports and downtown locations. The whole process is straightforward – no hidden one-way drop-off fees – and the choice of cars ranges from affordable compact to sporty SUV. And Avis cars are on average no older than six months, so you can be confident your vehicle more than meets the road trip challenge.
