All of our Cape Town branches offer a premium fleet of compact cars and family-sized estates to suit every budget. These are the ideal size for exploring the city but if you want to cruise along the Cape Town coastline or take in part of the stunning Garden Route we suggest you pick a luxurious convertible or sports car. At our airport, city centre and Rondebosch branches we also have rugged 4x4s available. These are the perfect choice for trips to Table Mountain or countryside visits to Cape Town vineyards. Your car hire in Cape Town will be supplied by trusted names such as BMW, Porsche, Audi or Mercedes-Benz. We also offer rental cars adapted for different mobility needs. To ensure a stress-free driving experience in Cape Town select extras from our attractive range.

Traffic Information back to top

Our desk at Cape Town International Airport is clearly signposted as you leave the arrivals terminal. Once you have collected your car it takes just 20 minutes on the N2 motorway to reach the city centre. The Cape Town City Centre, Belleville and Stellenbosch branches are all conveniently located in or close to the city centre and near local bus and train links. The Rondebosch office is next to St Stephen's Church on Belvedere Road in the city's Eastern suburbs.

Cape Town drivers have a reputation for being courteous road users but visitors are advised to keep vehicle doors locked when driving after dark. Driving is on the left which will be familiar to visitors from the United Kingdom.

Underground parking for your rental vehicle is plentiful across the city. Many streets also have parking zones that are either metered or operated by attendants who each take responsibility for two or three streets.

Start your visit to Cape Town by taking a coastal drive from Lagoon Beach to Hout Bay. This will take you past the city's marina and beaches and along under the shadow of Table Mountain. Look out for seals basking on the waterfront as you drive. Then head to the city centre and visit the Castle of Good Hope, South Africa's oldest building before wandering through the quaint and colourful streets of Bo-Kaap. This is a great place to try some spicy street food for lunch and shop for quirky souvenirs. The Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens are considered to be among the most beautiful in the world. Be sure to walk through the treetops on its elevated wooden pathway. If you are interested in history take the short boat trip to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was held as a political prisoner before hiking up Devil's Peak to the Rhodes Memorial. Here you can enjoy lunch with zebra and wildebeest roaming the slopes below you.

Get an aerial view of Cape Town from Table Mountain

The flat top of Table Mountain makes one of Cape Town's most unique sights and visitor attractions. This level plateau is two miles long and forms part of the larger Table Mountain National Park. Benefiting from World Heritage protection it is estimated that over 2,000 species of plants can be found on and around the mountain. The best way to view the changing landscape and the city below is by taking the Table Mountain Cableway to the top. The cars rotate through 360░ as they travel ensuring you see everything. If you are feeling more energetic hiking up the mountain following the Platteklip Gorge route takes around two hours. The top of the mountain can be extremely cold even in the height of Summer so go prepared.
