Cape Town Airport Car Rental Mini Guide

Collect a pre-booked rental car from Cape Town Airport and the whole of this magical area of the country is yours to explore. The area around The Cape has vineyards producing some of the best wine in the world whilst a trip up to the top of Table Mountain is necessary; don’t worry, there’s a cable car to get you to the top!

Plenty of airlines fly into Cape Town, all of them are scheduled and some of them operate on a seasonal basis only. You can fly into Cape Town from many countries such as the UK, USA, France, UAE and Germany. If you have pre-booked a hire car, the companies’ desks are found in front of the Transport Plaza and central terminal building. At peak times send a party member through to begin the process or you may find you face a long delay. Getting to your destination is quite simple. The airport approach road links directly with the N2 into the city.
