Affordable Car Rental in Cape Town South Africa

Affordable car rental in Cape Town South Africa is easy to find! Travelling Cape Town and the Western Cape by car has a number of advantages and will reward you with a multidimensional holiday.

Car rental vs public transport

Cape Town is a beautiful city with more attractions than you can possibly get around to in a short visit. The city is spread out, nestled at the foot of Table Mountain, unfolding down to the Cape Peninsula and flowing around from the Atlantic coast to the shores of the Indian Ocean.

The public road network is very good and accesses most of the citys drawcards. You may be tempted to use public transport to tour Cape Towns many charms, but consider the car rental vs public transport debate first.

Public transport in Cape Town, and in South Africa is vastly different to public transport in Europe or America. In general, its not recommended due to unreliability and safety hazards.

Trains

Trains (with the exception of luxury tourist trains) are not safe.

City buses

Select city buses are safe but are unreliable and inefficient in terms of departure and arrival times.

Taxis

Taxis are expensive and must be ordered by phone, they cannot be hailed like cabs in London or New York.

Minibus taxis:

Minibus taxis are hazardous and are not user-friendly.

Reasonable car rental in Cape Town, on the other hand, is:

  • Much safer (as youre doing the driving yourself)
  • More reliable (youre in charge of your journey)
  • More efficient (you can get in your car and go when you feel like it)

 

Possibly the greatest disadvantage of renting a car in Cape Town and driving in South Africa is learning to drive on the left hand side of the road-and many people find they adapt quicker and easier than expected.

Three benefits of reasonable car rental in Cape Town, South Africa

Reasonable car rental in Cape Town solves the travellers transport dilemma. Here are three reasons why:

Car rental is good value for money

Car rental in South Africa can be relatively inexpensive as there is plenty of competition. Petrol (car fuel) is affordable in comparison with most countries. Compared with other forms of safe and reliable transport over the same distance, car hire definitely comes out tops in the low-cost stakes.

Car rental gives you freedom and convenience

Renting a car allows for the freedom and convenience of going where you want, when you want, on your budget and at your whim. While tour buses run on a tight schedule, renting a car allows you the liberty of coming and going as you please. If you visit the V&A Waterfront and decide you want to stay for lunch or browse the market, you can chop and change your plans as you please.

Car rental takes you further and offers you more

Self-drive tours can take you to a far greater variety of places and attractions than tour buses. Renting a car gives you the autonomy to stop for ice cream at Sinnfull in Camps Bay, dash to Noordhoek for a horseride on the beach, and relax with sundowners at Hout Bay. The stunning Garden Route and the glorious Winelands are best explored by car.

For freedom and convenience when travelling the Western Cape, reasonable car rental in Cape Town is the way to go.
