Important information about Cape Town car hire

If you are wanting to cross borders using a car hire in Cape Town, you will be happy to know that most major car companies do allow it. The borders you are allowed to cross that will be reachable directly from Cape Town include Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Mozambique. Generally, the majority of the car hire in Cape Town will not charge an additional fee for crossing over into these countries; however, you're likely to incur additional insurance costs as well as cross-border fees.

The payment policy when booking a cheap car rental in Cape Town will change depending on the company. For example, some companies will offer you a cash-only contract, which will be seen as a positive option and will allow you to receive a cash discount on your total booking. Other companies such as Avis only accept credit card payments and will then ask the driver to pay a cash deposit for the vehicle. Many of the major companies will run a credit check before validating your booking; Hertz is one of the companies that do this. You are allowed to use a debit card as well, in most cases. Some of the smaller Cape Town car hire companies are going cashless and require an electronic funds transfer when booking your car. With all of that being said, regarding the payment of the booking, you will be asked to have either a debit or credit card on record with the car hire company, which is used only if you incur a fine or damage not covered by insurance.

When you are driving through Cape Town, you will be driving on the left-hand side of the road. You are prohibited to use a mobile phone while driving without a hands-free kit, even if you are using it to follow directions to your destination; we recommend booking a GPS device online for your hire car in Cape Town. It is illegal to drive around the city without your valid driving licence on hand at all times. The speed limit is 120 km/h (74 mph) on highways and 80 km/h (50 mph) in most parts of the city; this drops to 60 km/h (37 mph) in rural areas outside of the city infrastructure, and there are lots of speed trap cameras around the city. If you go through one while exceeding the speed limit, the fine immediately gets charged to the card on record at the company. Keep in mind that you may not stop within five metres of a bridge and six metres of a pedestrian crossing.

You are permitted to drive around Cape Town with a British driving licence or any driving licence that is printed in English. If it is printed in another language, such as Russian, French or German, you will need to carry an International Driving Permit. The licence you produce must have the signature of the driver on it and an up-to-date photograph of the driver. The licence is only considered to be valid if it does not expire for at least three months after the end date of your hire agreement. Each agent for car hire in Cape Town has a different policy regarding the amount of time you must have held your driving licence for it to be considered acceptable. Some companies will need you to have had it for as long as two years.
