FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

Cape Town Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Cape Town

Founded by Jan Van Riebeeck, working for the Dutch East India Company, Cape Town is the second largest city in South Africa and the capital of the Western Cape Province. This city has developed into a buzzing metropolitan multicultural city. Located in the west of the country, it has a fearsome mountain in the middle and is surrounded by many vineyards and stunning beaches. Use HAPPYCAR, the online comparison portal, to find your ideal car hire Cape Town and explore everything the city has to offer, in comfort and at your own pace. We compare the prices of international providers to find you the best deals on rental cars that fit your specific vacation needs.

Attractions

Table Mountain is a stunning flat-topped mountain that overlooks the whole city. It is 1,000 meters high and extending up to 2 miles wide. The mountain is home to a very rich biodiversity, over 1,500 different species most of which cannot be found anywhere else. There are a range of activities on the mountain such as hiking, climbing, paragliding and cycling. You can walk to the top of the mountain or you can take the cable car. Opening in 1929, the cable cars depart every 10 to 15 minutes and can offer the passenger some outrageously stunning views.

The V&A Waterfront is the most visited attraction in South Africa. Here you find a mix of diverse shops, restaurants, coffee shops and museums. The Two Oceans Aquarium is home to over 3,000 different species, ranging from sharks to penguins and giant spider crabs to turtles.

Take your car hire Cape Town to the South African Naval Museum which showcases evidence of seafarers round the Cape of Good Hope, as well as a selection of medals, weapons and naval equipment. There is also a decommissioned French submarine that serves as a museum, and tours are given.

The Castle of Good Hope was completed in 1679 with the design of a five point star stone castle. It is home to the Castle Military Museum, showcasing the military history of the cape. You can also find a good art collection and the William Fehr collection, which reflects the daily life of the cape from the Dutch East India Trading Company into the 19th century.
