HERTZ Car Rental Services at Cape Town Airport

Cape Town International Airport is one of the largest airports in Africa, handling approximately eight million passengers per year. It has also received numerous awards for being a world-class facility, including the 2009 Skytrax award for the best airport in Africa. The only airport larger than Cape Town’s airport is the O.R Tambo Airport, located in Johannesburg. Public transport in South Africa is not as commonly used as in areas overseas, therefore the best way to explore the city and surrounding suburbs is in a hired vehicle. Hertz is one of the major car hire companies with rental offices at the airport, and is a very popular choice among many passengers. Hertz is also the largest provider of car hire services in the world.

The Cape Town Airport car hire companies including Hertz, can be found in an area directly in front of the Transport Plaza and the newly constructed Central Terminal Building. They are also easily accessed via two pedestrian walkways, which allow passengers to reach the car rental facilities without needing to cross any busy airport roads. The two subways run on either side of the terminal building. The Central Terminal building was recently completed around March 2010, and is now the area that houses all 120 check-in desks of the airport. Check-in procedures for international and domestic flights are now handled from the Central Terminal. There are however still separate sections of the airport dedicated to international arrivals and departures, and domestic arrivals and departures. Departures are handled from the airport’s upper levels, and the arrival areas are located below.

Hiring a rented car is a very popular form of transport in South Africa, therefore passengers arriving at Cape Town Airport are advised to make an advanced booking for their ideal vehicle from Hertz. An advanced reservation can be conveniently achieved online, from Hertz’s local website at www.hertz.co.za.

It is also a free membership. Customers who rent just three times in a twelve month period will be invited to join the Hertz #1 Club Gold, and receive even more exclusive benefits and discounted rental rates.

A child seat is a very important item of equipment for all parents of young children travelling in South Africa. It is required by law for young passengers to be securely seated in a vehicle. Although additional items of equipment add a few Rand to your rental, they greatly contribute to the safety and ease of your journey. The rental of mobile phones is another great service offered by Hertz. It is always recommended to have some sort of communication with you when you are driving, in case of an emergency situation. Mobile phones are also useful to keep in touch with loved ones at home while you are on vacation or business in Cape Town.

These four vehicles are practical and smaller car models, which are ideal for driving in the city of Cape Town, however, they don’t have much room for luggage, and a larger vehicle is often more suitable for families. The Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic and BMW 3 Series are examples of vehicles which comfortably seat four or five passengers, and have space for a couple of luggage items as well. Passengers arriving at the airport who are travelling in groups will also be happy to find the Mercedes Vito available at Hertz, which is a vehicle seating up to eight or nine people.
