Car hire in Cape Town
Hiring a car in Cape Town
Located at the base of Table Mountain, Cape Town is a coastal city that has become an important tourist destination for South Africa. It is the second most-populated metropolis in the country after Johannesburg and has a truly multicultural vibe. Whether it is the cultural attractions and golden beaches of the city itself or the wine region of Stellenbosch close by, there’s lots to see in and around Cape Town.
Hiring a car will allow you to make the most of your visit to Cape Town. You’ll probably find a lot of your time is spent driving along the M3 expressway, which connects various districts from the City Bowl to the suburbs in the south.
What you need to know
When it comes to hiring a car in Cape Town you can opt to collect it at the airport or at locations in the city. If you choose Cape Town International Airport (CPT), you’ll have the biggest selection of car hire firms and vehicles on offer, but do not rule out the city centre if it would better suit your needs.
Either way, you can review all of your options by using the Holiday Autos booking tool. At the airport, there are more than ten car hire firms to choose from and they have all been rated excellent or very good by our customers. Add to this the 24/7 support and free cancellation should you need it and you can guarantee yourself peace of mind.
Where to pick up your car
All of the cars arranged for pick-up at the airport can be collected easily, as the car hire desks are within the terminal. Whether you are disembarking from an international or domestic flight, you’ll find the representatives in arrivals.
Several car hire companies, including Budget, Europcar and Hertz, offer city centre pick-ups. As they are all in slightly different locations, it’s worth seeing which one would best suit your needs prior to booking.
