We always use Avis on their International Drivers rate, booked via their ZA site.

Never paid a cent upfront and none of the problems often discussed on here in relation to using third party brokers. In fact never had a problem so far.

We always get a small SUV, much cheaper than here in Aus and holds all our luggage easily hidden away in the back. Plus good for safari, but that may not be an issue for you if you are only doing garden route.
