The car rental industry in South Africa
The car rental industry has been significantly impacted by the pandemic and resulting travel restrictions, as well as declining disposable income. The main commercial channels for car rental are business, government, insurance replacement and leisure, and demand for all of these avenues has declined markedly since March 2020.
Car rental companies were able to partially offset the losses by reducing their fleets, branches and workforces, and benefited from higher prices for used vehicles. The industry’s fleet had more than halved in July 2021 compared to February 2020. The sector, described as mature, has been under pressure for two years as online brokers and intermediaries have driven prices down.
Car rental companies are looking to capitalize on a growing trend of customers who prefer to rent rather than own a vehicle. Carpooling, digital aggregators, and car subscriptions provide car rental businesses with alternative revenue streams. Carpooling, where car owners rent their own vehicle, has grown in popularity in recent years but has been slowed by the pandemic.
Digital aggregators account for a significant portion of bookings. Subscriptions, where vehicles are leased on a short-term, usually monthly basis, allow vehicle users to switch from one car to another from month to month.
