Driving Guidelines in Namibia and South Africa
We drive on the left hand side of the road and overtake on the right.
Traffic police use cameras and radar to enforce speed control. Speeding fines are substantial and will be debited to your account.
The legal blood \ alcohol level for drivers is 0.05 (0.05mg alcohol to 100ml blood). Substantial fines and prison sentences are imposed for driving a vehicle while exceeding this limit.
All vehicle occupants are required to wear safety belts at all times. Fines are imposed for non compliance. 
Road signs are similar to the European system. Please refer to the traffic signs given on the inside back cover of the "Useful Information" brochure which you will be given at the time of rental.
Drivers are required by law to carry their drivers license with them at all times while driving.
Fuel (Gasoline) and Tyre Pressure
Most fuel filling stations in cities, major towns and along National roads (N routes) are open 24 hours. Those in rural areas are likely to close at 18h00 and re open at 08h00.
Unleaded fuel is available in South Africa, Namibia and Botswana and is the preferred fuel for all Budget vehicles. In South Africa, fuel may be purchased only in South African Rands and in Namibia, only in Namibian Dollars. Likewise, in Botswana, fuel may only be purchased in Botswana Pula. Bank credit cards are not accepted at fuel filling stations.
The recommended fuel grade and tyre pressure for your vehicle are specified in one of the following places in your vehicle:
On a sticker on the inside of the driver-s door.
In the vehicle manual guide, situated in the glove compartment.
On a sticker on the inside of the fuel cap.
VAT (Value Added Tax)
VAT is levied on most goods and services at a rate of 14% (SA) and 15% (Namibia). Retailers and service providers are required to state explicitly whether VAT is excluded or included in their display or quoted prices.

All major banks operate Automatic Teller Machines (ATM-s) at all cities, most towns, most airports and some fuel (gasoline) filling stations. 
Most ATM-s operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Most ATM-s are interlinked, so you can use an ATM belonging to any bank. However, the service fee is usually higher if you use an ATM belonging to another bank. Take care never to reveal your pin number or personal code to anyone under any circumstances.
