Is there crime in South Africa?

April 15, 2010

World cup 2010 visitors, this is not put out onto the internet to scare you in any way, but rather to warn you that if you are looking to rent a car whilst here in South Africa during the world cup soccer 2010. You may want to take the maximum insurance possible.

Don’t quickly sign and skim over the fine print.

These photo’s can be verified should anyone question the authenticity of them, by myself and others.

This car was stolen on a Sunday early morning from a locked garage in Johannesburg and recovered by the South African Police Services a mere 6 hours later. That’s right 6 hour later have a look at what was left…

Yes, take the maximum insurance you can when renting a car in South Africa…This is what criminals in South Africa can do to a car in 6 hours..

National Travel Warning!! to all travellers and visitors coming to South Africa for the world cup soccer.
If you are going to be renting or hiring a car, chances are high if stolen this is what is can look like within 6 hours.
Read the fine print on the rental agreement. Take insurance when offered.
