There is no better way to see everything Cape Town has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your Dollar rental car. Don't spend your time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. When you have the keys to your own ride, you can go wherever you want to go, when you want. Make your upcoming trip to South Africa more enjoyable with a Dollar car rental.
With everything to do in and around Cape Town, you'll be wanting to explore more than just the block your hotel is on while on your stay. Whether you have to have dinner at the bistro that has received rave reviews across town or check out some of the local hot spots, you'll want your own auto to see and do as much as you can during your trip. Whatever you end up doing in Cape Town, if you wish to get the most from your trip South Africa, having access to your vehicle is a must.
We work with several of the finest companies in the world. Dollar prides itself on exceptional customer service. Dollar's attention to its fleet of quality rentals and customer service is bolstered by their impressive business travel and vacation planning services.
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your car. But getting ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
You'll need to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Dollar's minimum age to rent a car in Cape Town is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Dollar's policies to know what the total cost is before you book.
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Cape Town. Compact or economy automobiles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Cape Town trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
In South Africa you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Cape Town. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Dollar does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Dollar will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Cape Town. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Dollar. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Cape Town certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Cape Town.
Dollar usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at a different Dollar. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
With so much to do and see in Cape Town, having access to your own car lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to explore more of South Africa, you can go when you like, without having to spend time waiting for the bus or hail a taxi.
Before your next holiday, book your Dollar Cape Town car rental and zip off to take in all the must-do activities at your own pace. Go through CarRentals.com and drive the road in Cape Town, South Africa.
