Is petrol in South Africa expensive?

Internationally petrol prices in South Africa are extremely competitive; however for the average South African’s salary petrol is seen to be quite expensive and South African car owners pay large amounts of their salary towards petrol. For foreigners coming to the country spending either dollars or euro’s petrol will largely be cheaper than your country. However it can become more expensive as you travel in countries such as Zambia. Visit our Fuel Cost Calculator for more information.
