First Car Rental - Your First Choice in the Free State
March 2018 - Planning a visit to the Free State? Are you coming on business; maybe visiting friends or family; or are you perhaps a discerning traveller wanting to step off the beaten tourist track? With branches in downtown Bloem and Bloemfontein airport, make First Car Rental your travel partner and enjoy the sights and wonders of South Africa's majestic heartland.
The Free State's charms are understated but highly rewarding for the keen observer. Local travellers en route to the coast often miss them, as they speed through this landscape with its undisturbed horizons and open vistas.
Stretched between the mighty Vaal River in the north and the Orange River in the south, the Free State is a province of vast expanses of grasslands, crop fields and the occasional golden spread of sunflowers. This is a place where you can still find farmers in khaki driving sun-cracked trucks loaded with livestock on dirt roads that have no end.
At the heart of the Free State sits the capital of Bloemfontein. "Bloem", as it's fondly named by locals, is the ideal jumping-off point from which to explore the province's many attractions.
Make sure to include on your must-see list the quaint town of Clarens - known as the "Jewel of the Eastern Free State", the Vredefort Dome - which is the oldest and largest meteorite impact site in the world, and the Golden Gate Highlands National Park - which is also home to a living cultural treasure, the Basotho Cultural Village.
Whether you're travelling within Bloem or exploring far beyond its city limits, First Car Rental is the Free State's preferred car rental service. No wonder the Bloem Airport branch received a Feather Award as 2017's "Best Medium Car Rental Operator" by ACSA.
Book a car with First Car Rental and plan your next trip to the Free State for a lifetime of memories.
