Car Hire

by sparkly_jem

I'm going to Cape town at the end of the month and was wondering if anyone can reccomend a cheap, reliable car hire company?

Re: Car Hire

by Doempie

The only company I've ever used to rent a car in South Africa, is Avis. They are one of the biggest (if not the biggest) company in SA. You'll find them confeniantly located at (or close to) airports and the larger tourist places. You can make a reservation online at www.avis.co.za. The bottom of their range that you can hire is a citi golf which will go for about R250 (more or less what we paid for one in December in Durban). If you have any further questions, just mail me! Good luck planning your trip!

We used Avis a lot and they are excellent. Lately I find Budget cheaper and the service is just as good if not better than Avis. Hertz has also been around for a long time.

We always use Nova Car Hire when we go to South Africa now... we have found them to be a lot cheaper than other firms and they are dependable!

I found a company called blue dot car hire (www.bluedotcarhire.com) they offer older vehicles and consequently a much cheaper rate. I haven't used them before, so can't comment on their service.
Have a good trip.

If you are just going to drive around CPT that could work. Check with them what happens if the car breaks down. If they are only in CPt and you drive further out of Cape town it might be a problem to get a replacement.

Re: Car Hire

by Jenniflower

I agree. I would want a newer, more reliable car for travelling... South Africa is BIG!

Re: Car Hire

by carteki

Lets define "older" their cars are 18 months or older. I was just chatting to a friend and saying that the last time I drove a car that was that "young" was in 1996! I've just driven from Natal to George in a 5 year old car and I did not have any issues.

Re: Car Hire

by Jenniflower

Well that's not old to me! Old to me is a bumper falling off and wonky steering ;)

Re: Car Hire

by cleocat

the only time we drive a new car is when we hire one. There are tons of old cars on the roads and they seem to all make it. But to be stuck somewhere and you can't get a replacement car can make your life very miserable. It happened to us with an Avis car once in the Cape but because it was Avis we had a replacement in no time. Even the new cars can break down. I'm all for the smaller places getting a break because I think the big companies are making mega bugs out of us.

This is prob not your normal photo of the hospital. It was taken from the hospital graveyard and has the new hospital in the back ground. Made famous by Dr Christiaan Barnard and his team of heart surgeons with the first ever human heart transplant in the world.

CAPE TOWN.

by PEE-WEE

Cape Town is one of the most popular long haul destinations in the world. Due to its unique topography, it is also one of the easiest places in which to orientate oneself as long as you remember that with Table Mountain behind you and Robben Island before you, you are facing north, looking across Table Bay and up the west coast of Africa. Within the Cape Town Region, there are seven tourism areas - the Atlantic Seaboard, Blaauwberg Coast, Cape Flats, Cape Town City, Cape Town North, Cape Town South and the False Bay Coast. These areas are defined by their geographical location and within each area there are a number of towns and suburbs.
Cape Town, as a region stretches from the Cape Town city centre and V&A Waterfront on Table Bay in the north, to Cape Point in the south. The northern boundary stretches from the Cape Town city centre up the west coast to just beyond Bloubergstrand. The area known as the Atlantic Seaboard follows the western coast from Cape Town city centre to Cape Point. The eastern boundary is on the False Bay coast just beyond Gordons Bay which is nestled below the Hottentots Holland Mountains. From Gordons Bay you would visit the Cape Overberg region via Sir Lowrys Pass. The Cape Flats and Cape Town North areas continue to form the eastern boundary of the Cape Town region, bordering the Cape Winelands.

Culturally Cape Town is at its most active during the months from June to September when the silly season is over and people get down to doing what they do best, relaxing and enjoying the Cape Town lifestyle.
Dont forget about the whales who visit our shores to mate and breed and the proteas are in full bloom. If it all gets too much there is also no better place in the world to cuddle up next to a roaring fire with someone special.

A car is a must

by AndreSTGT

Cape Town is one of those cities where you really need your own transport. Even within city limits there is no extensive or useful public transport system and getting to and around the peninsula, the Winelands or the Atlantic coast would be next to impossible without a car.
Car rental is not expensive in South Africa, petrol is cheap and driving is a pleasure, even in the cities.

for a happy hour away from the Mobs & city bustle
