The best way of getting around Bloemfontein is by car. Visitors can hire a car at Bloemfontein airport; Avis, Tempest, Hertz and First Car Rental all have branches at the airport arrivals hall. To hire a car in South Africa, foreigners will be required to have a valid international driving licence and five years' driving experience. Road conditions and signage in Bloemfontein are generally of a good standard and most people have no trouble getting around in the Free State. Those wanting to travel outside Bloemfontein to more rural parts of the Free State should consider hiring a 4x4. Visitors can also use a metered taxi to get around in Bloemfontein. While metered taxis are available 24 hours a day, travellers are advised to pre-book a vehicle in advance.
