First Car Rental in Cape Town

First Car Rental is the biggest homegrown South African car rental brand. It is operated by the Combined Motor Holding (CMH) group - up to 2008 they used the National Alamo brand, but a change was required when Europcar bought the National Alamo branding rights (you'll notice below that their email addresses are .cmh.co.za). They have 5 branches in the wider Cape Town area - at the airport of course, as well as in the city, Bellville, Rondebosch and Stellenbosch. Below are details of each of the branches - where they are, their hours of business, phone numbers and fax numbers.
