is an international drivers license necessary in South Africa

Jump to last reply

I have read conflicting advice about this - I will be picking up an Alamo rental car at Cape Town airport. Alamo's website says I need one but I have seen a number of people post on various sites that no one asked them for one. Even asked the person I will be visiting there and she said that when she was travelling with a United States drivers license she never had to produce international. Curious about others' experiences. Thanks, Pam
