Cape Town Car Rental

Here follows a list of car rental companies operating in and around Cape Town. Avis Cape Town is the most popular car rental agency, but there is no single rental agency which can be regarded as the cheapest discount car rental company operating in Cape Town; the company offering the lowest car rental prices varies from time to time. To find the lowest car rentals it's worthwhile getting a quote from each car rental company (the author has observed incidences in which Hertz and Budget have offered the lowest car rental rates).

When renting a car, bear in mind that your valuables are safer in a sedan with a closed boot.

December car hire

If you are thinking of hiring a car in December and in particular from 25 December to 2 January, then bear in mind that availability runs out very quickly, especially of specialist vehicles like minibuses. You have been warned - book well in advance.
