What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get a Cape Town Avis rental car at a great price?
We strive to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your car. However, booking ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I carry with me when I get my car rental in Cape Town?
You'll need to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Cape Town?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Cape Town is 21. Make sure to review Avis's policy, as there may be additional fees if you are under 25 or for higher category cars especially.
What kind of Avis rental car should I get for my trip to Cape Town?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Cape Town. Compact or economy vehicles are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Cape Town trip can choose a higher-end model like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in South Africa?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Avis in South Africa. Many major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) generally cover your car rental. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Cape Town. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Avis car rental?
Avis does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Avis?
We advise a full tank policy. You receive the car with the needle at "F". However, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you bring the car back to Avis. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Cape Town?
Cape Town definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Cape Town Avis offer one-way car rentals?
Avis typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental at a different location. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
