KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Cape Town

  • You should rent a car from one of the cheap car rentals in Cape Town when in the city if you love exploring new destinations. This is because, with a rental car from a cheap car rental in Cape Town, you’ll be able to easily drive to superb destinations within and outside of Cape Town. Some of the superb destinations on the outskirts of Cape Town you can easily drive to include the Cape Peninsula, 43 mi away, Boulders Beach Penguin Colony, 29 mi away, Cape Winelands, 32 mi away, and Hermanus, which is 75 mi. All these destinations are within 2h of Cape Town.
  • In Cape Town, over-speeding is highly penalized. If you’re caught violating the speed limit by 21km/h to 25km/h, you’ll be ZAR 750 (USD 44), while if you’re caught exceeding the speed limit by 31km/h to 35km/h, you’ll be fined ZAR1 250 (USD 73). In case you’re found driving at a speed of 36km/h to 40km/h above the speed limit, you’ll be fined ZAR1 500 (USD 88). Given that these fines are hefty, from the moment you pick up your rental car of choice from your preferred cheap car rental in Cape Town to when you return it, it’s in your best interest to observe the set speed limits.
  • In Cape Town and the whole of South Africa, children below the age of four are required to sit in SABS-approved child seats when riding in a car. As this is the case, if you plan on driving around with your child in Cape Town, you should ensure that you have an appropriate child car seat installed in the rear of your car. All cheap Cape Town car rentals offer child car seats upon request at an additional cost.
  • Public transportation around Cape Town is quite limited. For this reason it will be more convenient for you to rent a car during your stay. Having a rental car will enable you to visit exciting places such as De Hoop Nature Reserve, Groote Post Country Market, and Table Mountain, where you can hike and enjoy a variety of other outdoor activities.
  • You’ll also enjoy a number of modern conveniences when flying into the Cape Town Airport. This includes access to several rental car companies. Located in the center of the airport, there are rental desks for Hertz, Avis, Dollar, and a number of local agencies. Rent an economical car or a luxurious vehicle during your stay in Cape Town -- it’s all up to you.
  • Driving in Cape Town will require an adjustment for you since drivers there must drive on the left side of the road. You’ll also need to become familiar with the metric system as gas levels, speed limits, and road signs will be in liters and kilometers as opposed to gallons and miles.
  • Traffic can be a little busy during rush hour on weekdays. To avoid getting caught in traffic jams, you’ll want to drive during non-peak hours. Morning rush hour in Cape Town runs from around 6:15 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. (especially 8 a.m. to 9 a.m.). The evening commute also begins at around 4 p.m. but is most congested between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Cape Town for C$ 38 or less
  • Book your rental car in Cape Town at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Luxury rental cars in Cape Town are around 76% more expensive than other car types, on average

Cape Town car rental experiences: the best tips from KAYAK users

Insights shared by verified travelers who rented a car in Cape Town 
Verified travelerSep. 2023
Driving in Cape Town was pretty easy, probably less stressful than many large US cities. The pedestrians can be unpredictable so you need to watch out for them.
Verified travelerNov. 2023
GPS from and to the airport can take you through unsafe areas. If possible get directions from someone familiar with the area. Stay on main roads.
Verified travelerMay 2023
Driving in CT can be annoying and navigation challenging. Take as small a car as you can tolerate and have your GPS ready.

The pick-up was okay. They wanted to give us a car we had not booked (a sedan and not a small SUV), and we had to wait for the correct car. The staff was super helpful and the drop-off in Port Elizabeth was excellent, quick and painless.

Picking up the vehicle was easy and we were treated well. The staff at the pick up area was helpful and friendly.

Cons:

Returning the car was not as smooth as the pick up. The staff members tried to make us sign a paper assuming responsibilities for damage to the front left wheel. We refused to sign because the "damage" they claimed the wheel suffered was barely visible. We felt targeted.

When picking up I fave the agent a voucher for the rental but I charged a 2nd time. I paid for full coverage insurance, my hubcaps got stolen and I have just received an invoice for the cost of replacing the hubcaps. This is not what I expected having paid the insurance premium. Will never rent from Woodford again. A rental that should have cost just over $300 is now costing me over $1000.

Pros:

The car worked well, and the checkout process was well done. THe people at the counter were extremely patient as I needed to check on Collisions Damage Waiver, etc. with another company. The coverage offered by Kayak at the bottom of the confirmation email was much less expensive, so I definitely recommend taking this if you want coverage.

Cons:

Optional coverage was outrageous. Signage to return the car was poor. It's marked something like Rental Car Shade or something strange like that.

I was under the impression I had already paid for the rental. They told me that was just a booking fee, and charged me an additional $50 USD. There also was an incredibly long wait to check in despite there being only one other person in line in front of me. The staff also said I could have asked to have my status transferred to the SA system, but I was not aware I needed to do this. I am wondering why I spent $50 through Kayak, will this be refunded?

I told them I didn’t want the additional insurance and they charged me for it anyways. Also please note they are closed at 1 on public holidays. Otherwise the experience was good.

Pros:

The staff had to make efforts to explain the extra money they charge...and its very uncofortable to accept the explanation, and unacceptable, once I'd payed for the rental and insurance previously! It was a bad holiday begining... After this experience, I'm checking my VISA account all the time, to verify the expected refund. The drop off was ok.

Cons:

You must change the way of doing business. More clear, transparent and balanced value for money. Ca'nt recomend Hertz! Hope Kayak as some usefull feedback to our total insatisfaction!

Those guys in the rental are Scammers. Communication with the staff was really poor. They had incorrect adress on the kayak. We arrived to the place where we should have rented a car but no one was there. Then they informed us that we need to pick the car in a different location.This unfortunately cost us both time and money to which we didn't get any compensation for. At the end of the trip we return the car and everything seems to be fine. However 2 weeks later they have taken from my account some authorized transfers for services we didnt agree on. I had to contact my bank to get the money back. I would highly recommend to use different car rental.

What could have been better - the rental car broke down on the highway & roadside assistance took 2 hours to get a tow truck to us. What did I like - the roadside assistance support rep was very helpful & a replacement car was delivered to us a few hours after the first one broke down.

4.0 Mediocre

Jul. 2017

Cons:

Another driver hit our rental car while in Madrid. Thrifty kept over 500 Euros for the damage until the other driver's insurance. I have been calling and emailing Thrifty Madrid for 2 months and have not yet spoken to a human being, even though the insurance claim was already paid.

6.0 Okay

Pros:

It was an adequate substitute.

Cons:

It was old, scratched, dented and not very clean. The back lock was broken.

4.8 Mediocre

KAYAK

Pros:

Pickup and Dropoff was fine. The vehicle was more or less what we expected.

Cons:

I needed some help when I accidentally locked my keys in the truck of the vehicle. I realize this is my fault, but the staff lied and told me someone was en route to assist me. Further they told me I would receive a call from the manager. Nearly two hours after requesting emergency assistance, I received a call wherein I learned that Thrifty in SA does not unlock cars and I would have to do it myself. Thanks! I would have loved to have that information two hours prior. Foreign country, unusual circumstances, unhelpful/rude lying staff. Will not rent here again.

Pros:

I like how well the car worked and it's ability to transport us to wine country.

Cons:

They inspected the car and noticed something that had been there prior to our rental agreement. And we were forced to pay it.
