There is a couple of options available, the public transport system in Cape Town is not to bad especially not the MyCity bus service (I would however avoid the metro train as it is quite dangerous), then there is buying a car cash, you will be able to get something very decent, reliable and save for about R50K. then in terms of long term car rentals there is a few options that include Avis and Tempest. I have personally used a new car rental company called pace car rental and I was blown away by the quality and level of their service, their main office is in Johannesburg, but they have presence in Cape Town.Hi all,
I'm moving to Cape Town soon and one thing what i'm worrying is car rental options - I don't have money to buy a decent reliable car, so renting/leasing will be my only option. I want to sign a long term contract.
What kind of companies(or private hire) will offer good cars (<10y old) with affordable price? How much I have to expect to pay monthly? I have had an EU and International driving licence now for 12 years. I have also a 5 years residence permit to South-Africa.
Thanks in advance, this forum has been big help for me.
Good luck with your move and I hope that you get your transport issue sorted.
