Budget / Avis is easy to reach in CPT airport. Our vehicle was in perfect condition. At the vehicle acceptance one tries to sell many additional insurances. Just wipe it off! When returning the vehicle is trying every little scratch, bump, etc. as damage during the rental period. The discussions are really annoying. Urgent tip: Absolutely at the vehicle acceptance every detail (scratches, bumps, etc.) must be documented as inventory damage! Overall, a good result.

All of the airport car rental offices were very busy as was Friday before Cape Argus Cycle Tour so one of the busiest of the season. The car hire staff are pretty well organised and professional so managed under pressure to avoid any unnecessary delay. All of the car rental offices are a short distance walk from the airport terminal building so best to use a porter if you have a lot of luggage. There are no shuttle services on offer.

Long wait at the Thrifty Counter in Cape Town but less than the wait at AVIS and Hertz. Totally understaffed office.. Considering the unemployment rate in SA they need to hire more people. Once I got to an agent everything went well and if I don't see any additional charges show up on my credit card it will be a very positive experience. The agent that checked us in when we returned the car was terrific.

Payment was missing so it took a very long time but your employee Erik has solved it well. We were less satisfied with your service employee who wanted us to book again because our flight was delayed

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

As you begin your descent, you can feel the excitement. As soon as you grab your luggage, the real fun starts in this amazing city,. When you arrive in Cape Town, you are going to desire a vehicle to go everywhere on your to-do list. What better way to get going on your vacation than to get in the driver's seat right away? 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 CarRentals.com 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.
