Information about your trip to Cape Town

Car rentals in Cape Town are a great way to get around and see all your favorite attractions at your own leisure. You can get from the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront downtown to the famous Cape Point Lighthouse in under an hour and a half. Table Mountain is another iconic sight in the city where you can take your Cape Town car rental. There are at least 20 car rental locations in Cape Town, at both the airport and downtown, so you’ll have many options to choose from. You will come to see that car rentals in Cape Town are fairly affordable. If your visit to Cape Town is road-trip-oriented, you may want to consider switching up your standard economy car rental for a 4x4 vehicle to not miss out on any isolated areas to explore. You can find free parking in the surroundings of the city center. There are parking meters enforced in the Cape Town Central Business District (CBD).

While visiting, is it worthwhile to rent a car while visiting Cape Town?

Cape Town is definitely walkable in the city center. Nonetheless, the most common and convenient way of getting around is with some sort of vehicle since a lot of the top attractions are outside of the city center. Driving up to Table Mountain will allow you a great view of the city and the ocean. It’s one of the best lookout points around the city. Taking the scenic route along Chapman’s Peak Drive towards Cape Peninsula is an essential day trip to go on with your cheap car rental in Cape Town. Cape Town is known for its beautiful landscape and scenic routes. You may get lucky and maybe you’ll see some penguins. Unfortunately, Cape Town is infamous for its traffic so make sure you leave some extra time to get places, just in case. It shouldn’t be difficult finding parking places at touristic spots, which are generally safe locations to leave a rental car.

What different driving laws should I keep in mind while driving in Cape Town?

The oddest thing about driving in South Africa you should be aware of when getting car rentals in Cape Town is they drive on the left-hand side but the cars are generally right-hand drive vehicles. The speeds and distances will be marked in kilometers as they use the metric system in South Africa. It’s illegal to use handheld phones while driving, so we recommend you leave your smartphone out of reach. There is zero tolerance for drinking and driving in Cape Town, so if you’re planning on having a drink, leave your car behind. You may be held in custody if stopped by the police with more than 0.05% of blood alcohol content. Since laws may change or be updated, we recommend checking with Cape Town’s department of motor vehicles before picking up rental cars in Cape Town.

Will I need a special driver’s license or permit to drive a rental car in Cape Town if I’m visiting from another country?

Though it may vary depending on the car rental agency, it’s possible to obtain a car if you are 18 years old or older and have had your license for at least one year. Depending again on the agency, they may limit your choices and you won’t be able to get a luxury car rental in Cape Town. You must present a valid driver’s license. If your driver’s license is not in English, you must hold an International Driving Permit. On the other hand, if your country’s driver’s license does not include a photo, you must carry your passport with you as well.
