Cape Town Car Rentals Offer Flexibility to Tourists

Cape Town is a superb tourist destination with plenty to offer visitors. Aside from its diverse landscape, which ranges from spectacular ocean views, to vineyards and mountains, it also offers a range of activities including sightseeing, shopping, relaxing on the beach, golfing, hiking, whale watching, excellent dining, and wine tasting.

Renting a car in Cape Town gives you the freedom to go where you want, when you want and experience the city at your own pace. Easy-to-navigate streets and sign-posted attractions make it an city easy to get around. There are also several viewing points around the peninsula, which provide the perfect place to stop, take in the beautiful surroundings, and have a picnic. Gas stations are situated at regular intervals along tourist routes. They are open 24 hours should you require directions.

While Cape Town is not a large city, public transport is not always sufficient for getting to its many attractions. There are numerous tour companies offering day trips and tours, but they often run on very tight schedules and don’t always allow enough time in one place. A rental car allows you to reach your chosen destination easily and offers you the freedom to relax and explore it at your own pace.

Renting a car in Cape Town is also an easy way to experience Cape Town’s nightclubs, bars and restaurants. Clubs are located in the city centre, at the V&A Waterfront, and along the Atlantic Seaboard in Camps Bay and Clifton. They get going around 11pm and continue into the early hours of the morning. Cape Town is also home to Grand West Casino.
