Car rental Cape Town Airport, South Africa

Cape Town Airport is South Africa’s second largest airport and the third busiest in Africa, behind Johannesburg’s OR Tambo International Airport and Egypt’s Cairo International Airport.

A world class facility, Cape Town International Airport was named Africa’s leading airport at the 2012 World Airport Awards. If you’re looking to get your South African holiday off to the best start possible, Car rental Cape Town Airport will get you on the road in no time. 

Best time to visit Cape Town

The best to visit Cape Town is during the summer months of December to April. This is the best time to take advantage of the plethora of outdoor activities available to travellers using Car rental Cape Town Airport.

Around Cape Town International Airport

Cape Town’s beaches

Cape Town is blessed with an abundance of sun-kissed beaches if you’re looking to have some fun in the sun. Some of them include Camps Bay, Clifton as well as Muizenberg.

Table Mountain

Towering over the city, Table Mountain is a mere 30 minute drive from Cape Town International Airport. Travellers using car rental Cape Town Airport can hike up one of its famous routes and take in panoramic views of the city when going down in the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway.

Getting around

While public transportation in the city is adequate, renting a car is by far the best way to explore Cape Town. It gives you the privacy to do activities at your own leisure, without having to worry if you’re going to miss the next bus or train.

Length of stay

Cape Town has so much to offer, a one week stay would do it justice if you’re planning on visiting the city. We always recommend a week in the city and a week in the outdoors though, so rent a car at the airport, spend the week in the city and then rent a 4×4 and hit the wild outdoors. You won’t be disappointed.

What to pack

Cape Town is an excellent summer destination, but the winter months of June to September are generally cold, wet and windy. Depending on the weather and season, be sure to pack the right clothes according to varying weather patterns.

Where to stay

Cape Town city centre

The Cape Town city centre is the best place to explore everything that the city has to offer. Use it as a base to explore the Cape Winelands, our Blue Flag beaches and take in the variety of world-class restaurants at your disposal.
