AVIS Car Rental Services at Cape Town Airport

Cape Town Airport is located just 20 km from the beautiful and popular city of Cape Town, in the country of South Africa. Approximately 10 million passengers pass through this airport every year, making it the second largest airport in the country, and the third largest in Africa. Cape Town Airport consists of five terminal buildings, in which car rental companies can be found in the domestic and international arrival areas. One of the many car rental companies available at Cape Town Airport is Avis, and they are a globally recognized company offering their customers a wide range of vehicles to hire, at competitive rental rates. Avis Rent a Car is a popular choice of car hire Company for many passengers arriving at Cape Town International Airport, as they have many years of experience in the car rental industry.

Avis, at Cape Town Airport, serves many local and international customers, and is available for vehicle collections every day of the week, 24 hours a day. Customers can also hire a vehicle directly from Avis’ rental counters at the airport. More convenient though, is making an advanced reservation from Avis’ website, at www.avis.co.za. Advanced bookings are often recommended, as customers will then ensure that they receive the ideal vehicle for their holiday or business requirements. Avis’ websites are comprehensive, displaying information about their various vehicle categories for hire, as well as detailed information regarding their specific rental terms and conditions for their car rental locations.

Vehicles from Avis are hired by car category, rather than by their specific makes and models. The Kia Picanto is one of Avis’ smallest cars at this rental location, and is an example of a vehicle in the Economy category. Vehicles in the Economy category come with three or five doors, a manual transmission, and may have air conditioning and a radio, or CD player. These smaller vehicles are ideal for single drivers or couples, and although they do seat up to four people, families may find that they lack a bit of space for luggage. The Chevrolet Spark is another example vehicle in this category. Compact vehicles are of a similar size, but come with some additional features, such as airbags, air conditioning, power steering, ABS brakes and central locking. The VW Polo Hatch is an example of a Compact vehicle.

Vehicles with more room for luggage, and those perhaps more suitable for family excursions, are found in the categories of Intermediate, Standard and Full Size, while extra large vehicles, or people carriers, can be hired from Group N. An example of a large people carrier is the VW T5 Kombi, seating up to eight passengers, and still with room for five large luggage items. Intermediate vehicles, such as the Toyota Corolla, have a manual transmission, while Standard vehicles and Full Size vehicles are automatic. These vehicles may include the Toyota Corolla Sedan and the Audi A4 Sedan Auto. Hybrid cars such as the Toyota Prius Hybrid are available, and are extremely light on fuel, while passengers arriving at Cape Town Airport can also select from a range of Premium, Luxury and Specialty/SUV vehicles.

The minimum age required in order to hire a vehicle from this rental location is just 18 years for all car groups. All drivers registered on the rental contract should produce a valid drivers license when collecting the rented car from Avis, and the primary renter will need a major credit card in his/her name for payment of the car hire period.
