Car hire at Cape Town airport is the practical choice for any visitor, there is so much to do and see that relying on taxis will become expensive and relying on public transport will leave you disappointed. Cape Town or the Mother City as it is affectionately known to the locals is a popular tourist destination for visitors, both local and international. The iconic mountain, the world class beaches and the vibrant nightlife and entertainment make it a city of international standard with both natural beauty and a rich cultural heritage to offer the tourists an all-round experience of both relaxation and interest. To make the most of these amazing opportunities it is essential that you have private transport, which is why organizing a hire car from CPT airport is recommended. Unfortunately, the public transport leaves something to be desired and therefore should not be relied upon by travelers wishing to experience the city to the full. Although the powers that be are making an effort to improve the transport facilities there are still many areas of interest that are not serviced and should not be left off the tourist trail. The road network however is second to none and for that reason it is recommended that visitors use car hire at Cape Town airport to ensure that they make the most of their stay.

A hire car from Cape Town airport organized in advance gives you the freedom to explore this piece of natural heritage at your own pace discovering the many quiet coves. (more…)
