Car hire quotes

Here's the car hire quotes we did over the last week. Note that prices and availability could well have changed since we did these quotes.

R 3,248 for a Toyota Quantum seating 10 passengers as well as space for any luggage. It also has free 100km/day. Book it from First Car Rental

I need a car or van to hold 4 adults from Friday Nov. 2/2012 until Friday Nov. 16/2012. We are seniors and are arriving by train from Johannesburg at 4:16 on the 2nd of Nov. I assume that the train station is downtown so that would be best for our pickup. We fly back to Johannesburg on Friday Nov. 16th. Our flight leaves at 10:50am. We wVould drop the car at the airport. We will have luggage for 4 people when we get off the train, however, most of that luggage will be left at our accommodation while we travel around sightseeing during the 2 week stay. We want unlimited mileage, something comfortable such as a van. We are Canadians. We want the best deal possible.

The best quote I managed to get for you was for a Toyota Quantum with unlimited, aircon and power steering, for R 22,980 (price subject to change). Delivery to the train station can be organised at a fee of R 400.  Book with First Car Rental 

We are 5 adults and will need a car as from 23rd Feb to 1st March in Cape Town for visiting and sightseeing.
Pick-up and drop-off at airport or Bellville/Parow area.

From Cape Town airport, your best option is to go for a Renault Megane for R1973 (alternatively, if you're smaller people there's the Toyota Yaris for R1446). Check at Car Trawler.

Please can you give me the cheapest quote on car rental in Cape Town, from 24 March (around 11:00) to 25 March (around 14:00).

The Purple shall rule! "On Sunday, 22/01/2012. I was at the King Shaka Airport Durban and went for supper with my in-laws as they were leaving to JHB. I was disgusted at how their food court was kept. There was litter everywhere I looked. To top it off ,there was food half eaten lying on top of the tables and on the floor with the litter. The place looked like a mess and was not too hygienic for an International airport. I hope someone there could look into this as it does not give South Africa a good impression when we have
overseas visitors grabbing a bite at the food court." Arshen

The Bottom Line: Commentators curse - "In 2000, The Economist ran the now-infamous cover labelling Africa “The Hopeless Continent”. Since then, however, Africa’s progress has been anything but hopeless. Over the ten years to 2010, Africa’s annual output grew by 4.7%, almost twice as fast as the previous decade and much faster than the global average growth rate of 2.6%." Adrian Saville
