The station was not in the terminal, but there was a short wait but a lot of bureaucracy. An additional sum was requested without explanation. After studying all the data in the hotel, we recognized the cause (car should be picked up 30 minutes early). We then gave the car 30min. before the agreed time, so that there will probably be no additional expenses.

I picked up a luxury standard car, a Mercedes C 200 or similar. Most renters gave me “similar”, and this meant even a Toyota. At Thrifty it was not the case: they gave me the Mercedes C200, almost brand new (less than 3.000km). And they didn’t tried to shove me any additional insurance or other liability. One day before rental day I asked for extending the rent for 1day and it was Ok and easy and fast to get all the details. The process of dropping in and dropping out the car was easy and relatively fast (it was high season, at the New Eve,s). I am entirely satisfied with Thrifty.

Thrifty has always been the cheapest in terms of car hire but things have changed, your prices have grown. Your friendliest staff ever in the world is in Green Point, Cape Town in South Africa. Check your prices and go back to VW especially for group B and B1. Otherwise ofcoz I will keep on hiring from u.

Everything went very well. Only the registration took a while, because other than me others wanted to pick up a car. Pick up the car and the return itself was extremely fast and uncomplicated. Were then also driven to the nearby hotel. Perfect!

We waited almost an hour to recover our vehicle. Once the vehicle rented, the agency called us by mistake 2 days before the return of the vehicle, indicating that we had to make it a day. After a big stress shot and 15 minutes of calling (from abroad) to clarify the situation, we did not even apologize for the inconvenience.

Car Rental at Cape Town Airport (CPT): What you need to know

Below is almost all the info you want to know to ensure your car rental from Cape Town Airport (CPT) will go swimmingly.

Where do I get the cheapest price on a car rental at the Cape Town Airport?

You are in the ideal place if you want to get the best deal on your Cape Town rental car. If you want to boost your savings, aim to:

  • Book as far in advance as possible. You will usually save more and get the car of your choice
  • Compare weekly and daily rates from all the different suppliers
  • Be aware of any cost for an added driver, fuel policy, and mileage limits. That way you will know the total cost before you book

Do I have to be a certain age to book a car in Cape Town?

You can rent an automobile in Cape Town if you are at least 21. Please note commonly you'll be charged an additional fee if you are younger than 25. Additionally, the age restriction may be different for premium, large capacity, SUVs, or other higher category vehicles. Check the car rental company's policy before you book.

What rental car suppliers are at Cape Town Airport?

There are 3 rental car companies at the Cape Town Airport. You'll have your pick of some of the best car rental suppliers. You can book your car with Avis, Budget, or National, and begin checking out Cape Town.

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in South Africa?

Proof of insurance is required before you rent in Cape Town. Many major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover) typically cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover before you head to Cape Town. Additionally, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through at checkout if you are a United States citizen.

What forms of identification do I need to bring with me?

When you are packing, be sure to also bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.

What is the fuel policy on my rental car?

We encourage a full tank policy. You should get into your vehicle topped off. However, if you return the rental with less fuel than you began with, the company may charge you up to triple the current prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, you'll want to find a gas station before you bring it back. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Cape Town?

Cape Town certainly has its charms, but unlimited miles means you have unlimited choices of where to go and what to see after you've checked off all the hot spots in Cape Town. If you have your heart set on seeing as much as you can, you'll need as many miles as possible to explore as much as you can while on your vacation.

Is it possible to book one-way at Cape Town Airport?

Many car rental suppliers offer one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different location. Be aware there is typically an added charge when you decide to only go one-way.

What sort of vehicle would you recommend I get for my trip to Cape Town?

That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Cape Town. Compact or economy automobiles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Cape Town getaway can choose a higher-end car model like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.

Your Cape Town rental car is waiting at the airport

With Cape Town's richness of activities and sights, you'll want to make your trip worthwhile. When you rent a car with a company you can rely on, it'll be that much easier to focus on the things that really matter, instead of worrying over ridiculous scheduling expenses. So, on your upcoming vacation, score big on our deals when you reserve an inexpensive Cape Town rental car.
