EUROPCAR Car Rental Services at Cape Town Airport

Cape Town International Airport is located approximately 20 km, or 12 miles from the city center of Cape Town, in the country of South Africa, and handles over 10 million passengers per year. Most of the passengers at Cape Town Airport are domestic, but a good number are international as well. This airport was the winner of the Skytrax Best Airport in Africa award in 2009, and is rated as the second largest airport in South Africa, and third largest out of all the airports on the continent. Most people in South Africa drive their own cars for transport, and therefore a rented car is one of the best transport solutions for tourists in Cape Town. Europcar offers their car rental services from Cape Town, and is one of the best-known car hire companies available. Europcar offers their customers a wide range of quality vehicles from which to choose.

The car hire companies at Cape Town Airport are mostly located in the Car Rental Terminal, which is found in front of the Transport Plaza and the newly constructed Central Terminal. The car rental facilities are connected to the airport buildings via two pedestrian walkways, which offer a safe and convenient route for passengers to follow, without the need to cross any busy airport roads. The walkways also provide access to where the vehicles of the various car hire companies are parked. Otherwise, Cape Town Airport consists of five terminal buildings, and passengers will arrive on the lower levels of the airport, at either the domestic or international arrival terminals, depending on from where their flight originated. Europcar at Cape Town Airport, is available for rentals, and vehicle collections and returns 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They are also open on public holidays.

The Economy category contains vehicles which are very popular with many customers, as they are all light on fuel, and come with excellent rental rates. They are smaller vehicles, ideal for nipping around tourist attractions in Cape Town or for running errands in the city. It is said that four people can be seated in Economy cars, but families will most likely need a larger sized vehicle, as they don’t have much room for luggage. Example Economy vehicles include the Kia Picanto and Hyundai Atos. These vehicles are both manually driven.

Other smaller sized vehicles can be hired from the Compact category at Europcar, such as the Renault Sandero, Toyota Corolla and Chevrolet Aveo. Compact vehicles do however have a bit more luggage room than Economy cars, and are considered to be slightly larger. They offer a very safe and easy driving experience. The Chevrolet may be a vehicle with an automatic transmission as well. A vehicle offered in the Intermediate category is the Honda Civic, with an automatic transmission and reasonable space for luggage.

Passengers arriving at Cape Town Airport who require a larger vehicle for their travels should consider the SUV categories, or vehicles that are known as people carriers. Types of SUV vehicles include the Daihatsu Terios 4x4 and the Hyundai Tucson, which can seat up to five passengers. The largest vehicle available is the Toyota Quantum, with space for ten people, while the Hyundai H1 seats up to eight passengers. This car has good space for luggage as well. Therefore, customers who would really like to enjoy a more comfortable journey, will have no problem in finding the right vehicle at Europcar.
