East London is in South Africa's Eastern Cape province; its wider metropolitan area is referred to as Buffalo City. Car hire from East London Airport is the best way to see the spectacular Eastern Cape coastline; the airport is one of the closest to South Africa's Sunshine Coast, so-called because of its getting the most sunlight hours in the entire country. The Nahoon Footprints are casts of ancient human footprints which were found here, and are now housed in the East London Museum.
Shopping facilities are good here and Hemingways Mall is rated particularly highly. Those hiring a car from East London Airport will find the mall along the N2 motorway running north of East London.
East London Airport is just over 20 minutes' drive from the city centre; anyone wishing to head into the city will find that car rental from East London Airport is convenient and easy. Take the R72 coastal road into East London as the seaside views are especially amazing. The deep water harbour is a fantastic spot for seafood restaurants; while East London Museum is well worth a look for the haunting Nahoon Footprints, and the beaches are an essential part of your trip.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
