Rental car companies have a wide range of vehicles that are available for rent on their fleet. Different purposes of travel will lead renters to choose a vehicle that suits their needs for their upcoming driving trip. A minibus rental may not be deemed necessary and many people believe that they can have just as enjoyable a trip if they choose a sedan for the drive. However, there are things to consider before making the final decision of which vehicle will work best when renting a car.

If you are renting a car because your car is in for repairs, pause for a moment and ask yourself who you will be hauling, what you will be hauling, and if you will need any extra space or capabilities from the vehicle during the time that you have it. When your own private vehicle is in the repair shop, it may take several days before it is ready. If you will be transporting your family and your kids' friends from location A to location B, you may come across a situation where a minibus rental can be ideal and will provide you with the room needed in order to get everyone comfortably and safely into the vehicle.

When driving around town performing your everyday tasks and errands, a minibus rental will give you the space you need to haul business supplies, children's sporting and band equipment, bicycles, and other things that typically require extra space. Minibus rentals are generally not much more than a small compact car, and this can help to make your life more comfortable and more functional while you wait for your own vehicle to get repaired at the repair shop.

Minibus rentals are also exceptional choices for long trips because people will have leg room to sprawl out. Not being cramped and squeezed into a tight space during a very long trip can be a major benefit. It is important that everyone is comfortable and has adequate room to move and flex as need be. This will help to relieve tension from leg muscles, the back, and the shoulders as each person sits in a vehicle for hours at a time during a long drive.

If you are heading to the beach on holiday, minibus rentals can help you to fit everything you need into the vehicle. From fold out tables and beach chairs to swimwear, food and beverage coolers, beach bags filled with extra clothes and sunscreen, and beach fun equipment, items can be neatly stowed away in an appropriate size minibus. Depending on how much you are taking to the beach with you and how many people will be traveling with; you may decide to choose a full size mini bus rental over a smaller one for this beach vacation.

Minibus rentals for a car rental selection can provide additional space, more comfort, towing capabilities, superior family safety features, and entertainment features as well. Speak to an agent at your car rental company to find out which type of minibus rental will work best for your next trip.

Why you should visit Cape Town

Great Accommodation and Food

There are many excellent accommodation places of varying standards. There are several 5-star hotels on the waterfront near the centre of Cape Town.


Sometimes, the Cape Town summer weather can get a bit harsh, particularly when outdoors. Pack your favourite sun lotion, hat and glasses for protection, when sight-seeing during the middle hours of the day. Pack light cotton clothes for comfort in summer with a light coat. If travelling in winter, research the temperatures of where you are staying.

If the weather turns cold during winter times you can always go to V&A Waterfront. Other wet weather activities include the Gold museum, the Jewish museum, the Slave House, the brilliant Heart of Cape Town heart transplant museum or the wonderful Science Centre at Canal Walk.

Protection of your valuable items

Take care to protect your money and other valuable items. Keep them from general view when they are not in use. Store your cash in several places so that if you are unfortunate to experience theft, you will still have cash with you.

Keep your travel documents safe and always keep a copy in your luggage. A strong shoulder bag or a concealed wallet will cut the risk of theft.

Protection of our health

If you are travelling from another country consult your family doctor about the need for any pre-travel vaccinations. Traditionally, malaria has been one of the challenges in South Africa all depending on where you are going. There are several approaches and your doctor will be able to select the most suitable one.

Travel Insurance

South Africa have medical services that are available at private hospitals in most major cities, like Cape Town. However, it is strongly advised by most governments that travel insurance is an important investment to cover potential incidents in foreign countries if travelling from aboard.

If you need to rent a car for more than 28 days give or take, you can usually save tremendously on your payments by going for a long term car rental deal. There are companies that rent out their cars for a minimum of 7 days. This makes sure that the client is already getting the car at a discount off the daily rate.

However there are some rental companies where you can save more by renting for 27 to 28 days rather than for a 30 day period. You need to check out the pricing schemes for long term car rentals and compare them with what you would be paying for the equivalent number of daily rentals to see if you should get the long term car rental from that car rental company. Or choice another car rental company to look at.

Otherwise, there are more car rental companies that offer savings on the monthly plan rather than on the daily plan. On the internet, there are many car rental websites that offer budget discounts for monthly rentals.

Other advantages of long term car rental include not having to return the car every month. All contracts for each of the months you want to use the car are filled out at the start. Some car rental companies, however, will need you to have the car checked up and serviced after some thousands of miles in mileage. You will be billed for each month automatically. And of course there is the 24 hour emergency service that you can use with a long term car rental that is included in your deal.

Long term car rentals not only give you added savings, but give you the freedom and flexibility that owning your own car gives without the overhead in maintenance and tax worries. If your work finds you far from your home, renting cars on the long term makes more sense than buying a new car for one or two years, having to worry about the maintenance of the car, spending for costly repairs and taxes. Even if you resell your car after one year, you may stand to lose more in depreciation than if you had just gotten a long term car rental plan from the start.

Make double sure that your monthly price you are going to pay covers most, if not all, of the insurance and other miscellaneous fees.

The c –class of the Mercedes Bens gets better fuel economy, costs the same as a fully loaded Chrysler, and has more standard safety than cars that cost much more than this vehicle.

A Reversing camera is standard, it will break automatically in an emergency, getting 15 percent discount on most insurers, and it has wipe down vinyl seats that are family friendly.

The world had turned from the time when only the rich people could afford to drive this type of vehicle. But these days just about anyone can drive such a luxurious vehicle.

The Mercedes Benz C180 comes with automatic safety breaking to electric window switches. It is a vehicle that is loaded with allot of safety stuff but also benefits from a new generation of engines with stop-start and turbocharging.

With the C180 performance is almost a match for the C250 yet its claimed fuel economy is 6.0L/100km. it has old school rear wheel drive for refinement and driving enjoyment, with a seven speed automatic gear box.

The new body is bigger but nearly half of the panels are made from aluminium, which cuts weight by up to 40kg.

The body follows Ben’z latest styling, which is more aggressive than the outgoing car, but the interior has been modernised without losing its effectiveness. There is a large touch screen 7 inches. Include a choice of interior lighting colours and an agility switch for the engine/transmission/steering computer. Smart work inside the bigger body enhances usable space, particularly in the back where the outgoing C-Class was upright and cramped. The boot is also much bigger.

Regarding Safety the C-Class basics are right, from the body structure to nine airbags. The extra gear – including automatic emergency braking that flashes you a noisy warning.

The car copes easily over bumps and potholes. There is nothing nasty in the handling of the vehicle, which is generally neutral in all corners, and it cruises quietly and effortlessly.
