Whether you are looking to rent a car for business or for everyday use, getting a good deal on your next car rental will leave you with some extra money.  We share some recommendations for getting a good deal on your next car rental.

Book your Car Rental in Advance

This gives you the opportunity to consult with different car rental websites and compare options.  Do not go to the first best car rental company as soon as you get off the plane because they are usually more expensive based on their location and convenience.  

Hire the car during off-peak months

During peak months, the demand for car rentals is much higher, meaning that the costs of car rentals increase significantly so try hiring a car during off-peak months.

Make use of Travel Websites and forums 

There is loads of useful information that can be obtained from many different car rentals websites like how users experienced their service. Look out for any customers who left reviews or comments about the car Rental Company and see if they are any good.

Compare the costs of the different car rental companies 

With the power of the internet, we can compare the prices and different offerings of the different car rental companies to find the car hire option that will suit you best.

Renting a car is something that everybody will need to do at one stage or another; whether it is a budget car on a long-term car rental contract or a panel van for a house move over the weekend.  As Cape Town Airport car hire specialists, we share some advice to ensure that you take the right steps after having an accident with a Cape Town rental car.


Firstly, before you get behind the wheel of the car rental, make sure that you fully understand the insurance policy of the car rental company, also give your own insurance company a call and find out if they cover you for rental cars and to which extent, if they do cover you fully, there is no need to pay for insurance waivers through the car rental company.


If you are involved in an accident with a car rental, the first thing you need to do is check if anybody is injured and call the necessary emergency services to alert them of the incident if necessary.   Then call the car rental company to tell them of the accident.


The next important thing is to take photos of the accident scene, for evidence to support your case.  Also, be sure to report the car accident to the nearest police station within 24 hours.

Be sure to get the following information from the other driver:


        His Name and Surname

        ID Number

        VIN Number of his car

        Engine Number of his Car

        His car’s registration number

        His contact information


It is also very important that you alert your insurance company about the accident and provide them with all the relevant information surrounding the case including photographs taken at the scene, as well as the case number from SAPS.


Don’t just allow any tow truck company take the car rental away from the scene, insurance companies, as well as car rental companies, often have partnerships with respected tow truck companies in Cape Town, if you let the vehicle leave the scene with the tow truck without the necessary authorisation, you will end up being liable for the full cost of recovery on the rental car.

We live in one of the most beautiful countries in the world, but unfortunately, we have one of the highest crime rates, with the number of cars being hijacked or stolen around Cape Town increasing every year.  Increasing our risk of becoming a victim, therefore it is important to take the necessary steps in order to ensure that you reduce your risk of becoming a victim of a hijack or vehicle theft in Cape Town.


The first thing that you should be sure of is that the rental car is comprehensively insured against accidents and theft because you will be held responsible for any damage or loss to the rental car, this insurance can be taken in the form of a waiver directly from the car rental company or most car and home insurance companies will cover you, but be sure to check this with your insurance in advance.


In the unfortunate event of your Cape Town rental car being stolen, you should phone the South African Police Service as soon as possible and then the Cape Town car hire company, the quicker you are to report the stolen rental car, the bigger the chance of the stolen rental car being recovered successfully.


Then you should do a quick inventory check in order to determine if other items of value like your ID, drivers licence, bank cards or cell phone is stolen with the car and the phone and cancel the applicable items like bank cards and cell phones. And report any drivers license or ID that was stolen to the police.


Like we mentioned before, the car rental company can hold you fully responsible for the stolen car if it can be proven that the rental car was stolen due to negligence on your side or in cases where the rental car was not sufficiently ensured.
