We had to rent a car for a while (about 4 months) when we arrived, cost us an absolute fortune. Try to buy if possible.Hello
We just moved to cape town and would like to get a car. We plan to be here for 1 year. Is it better to rent or buy one? We may get a second car so definitely would like which options work better to save money..
In 2009 I hired a basic Citigolf for about R2000 for a month. These days you won't get that value for money. If you are here for a year why not try Car Hire Cape Town | Car Rental South Africa | 4x4 Hire. They have a buy back program.I agree car rental is going to cost R6,000+ a month.
Plus if you buy you can sell when you leave. Yes, it's more hassle but will save you more money.
Am also looking into Long-Term rentals.We had to rent a car for a while (about 4 months) when we arrived, cost us an absolute fortune. Try to buy if possible.
