Hire A Car

Do I need car hire in South Africa?

Many of our volunteers and visa/immigration customers ask us "do I need to hire a car in South Africa/Cape Town?" The simple answer for most people is YES.

South Africa does have an excellent national road network with many well-maintained national roads connecting all cities and town. The roads and highways in the cities and towns are also well-kept, much like the rest of the western world.

The problem comes in that the public transport system (trains and busses) within cities and between the major cities is far from adequate (or non-existent in some cases - although it is improving all the time).

If you are only visiting for a short while, you can get by using taxi's, cabs or walking, but if you plan to visit for more than a week or two its advisable to rent a car. If you plan to stay for a few months, then its possible to buy a car for the duration of your stay in South Africa.

Another great service they offer for travellers, volunteers and interns that plan to stay in South Africa for longer periods of time, is their vehicle buyback option - this is ideal for students and interns who need a car to get around in Cape Town or people who wish to explore Southern Africa for a few months in their own 4x4 or Land Rover.
