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

  • 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 hire 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 hire car companies. Located in the center of the airport, there are hire 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 petrol 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 a car hire in Cape Town for €24 or less
  • Book your car hire in Cape Town at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact hire cars in Cape Town are around 6% cheaper than other car types, on average

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

Insights shared by verified travellers who hired 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.

Pros:

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.

Pros:

Bad initial experience. The car was supposed to carry 5 people and carry 2 suitcases. It was 1.1 litre inderpowered (hyundai?) and barely suitable. The car battery was dead and car hsd benn previously jump started. Needed replacement vehicle. Lost 2days of holiday as a result but new car excllent

Cons:

Avis Strand office at Somersetwest responded excellently in providing replacement car but CT airport should never have allowed the first substandard car to have been issued.

Pros:

I liked walking into a busy office with a long line and walking right up to the preferred customer desk. It was an amazing feeling. Checkin was quick and easy, our car ran smoothly on a long road trip. When we returned it we didn't have to even go inside. We were met outside right away. Great experience.

Cons:

Our car had an awkward luggage cover up that we were constantly battling. A quirk of the Toyota Avanza I suppose.

Sep 2023

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?

2.0 Poor

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.

KAYAK

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!

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.

Kayak quoted me $95 for this car rental, I ended up with a $500 charge on my Amex.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Car hire insurance in Cape Town

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Cape Town car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Cape Town.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Cape Town car hire.
