Budget Car Rental Companies in Cape Town

A selection of reliable, cheap car hire agents in the Mother City

Last Updated: 16 May 2017

Cape Town is a great place to visit thanks to its cultural heritage, breathtaking scenery, adventure culture and major attractions, such as Table Mountain and Cape Point. That’s why the city summons all sorts of crowds, from those with a big budget to those with a small budget.

Regardless of how much you have to spend though, rental cars; with their deposit fees, additional driver add-ons, drop-off and collection fees and excess insurance charges, are often quite a pricey outlay that can compromise a fair chunk of your cash.

Luckily, we’ve compiled a list of car rental agents that won’t break the bank and that will keep you safe and sound for your entire stay. Whether you’re on a family holiday and looking for a safe, economical minivan or whether you’re an intern in Cape Town on a budget looking for a vintage Beetle rental to get you around town, there’s something to fit everyone’s fancy.
