SIXT Car Rental Services at Cape Town Airport

Cape Town International Airport is an important gateway to one of the most visited cities in South Africa, and one of the most diverse cultural and scenic wonderlands. The airport handles over 10 million passengers per year, of which approximately one and a half million are international. These traffic figures rank Cape Town Airport as the second busiest in South Africa, and the third busiest on the continent. The airport is located just 20 km from the city center of Cape Town, in the Western Cape region of South Africa. South Africa’s public transport system is not as comprehensive as those in Europe; therefore it is best to rent a car from one of the car hire companies at the airport, such as Sixt. Sixt Car Hire offers customers a range of unique services, and quality vehicles at affordable rental rates.

Sixt, along with a number of other car hire companies at Cape Town Airport, is located just in front of the Transport Plaza and Central Terminal building. Their offices are easily accessed via two pedestrian walkways, which shield passengers from the busy airport roads. The pedestrian walkways run on either side of the terminal, and lead to the vehicle parking areas of the car hire companies as well. The Central Terminal building is a new addition to Cape Town Airport, which has significantly expanded its facilities. Check-in operations for both international and domestic flights are now handled from this terminal building, from where passengers will then separate to their international or domestic departure terminals.

Sixt at Cape Town International Airport, offers possible twenty-four hour rental and return services, which can be highly convenient for passengers arriving or departing on late night flights. Vehicles can also be reserved in advance, from Sixt’s website at Their local website for South African rentals can be found at All the vehicle categories offered by Sixt at this airport rental location are displayed online, along with pictures and details for each example vehicle. Customers can also find out more about Sixt’s rental terms and conditions when reserving a vehicle online. It is often recommended to make an advanced reservation, in order to avoid a situation whereby your ideal car is not available on your arrival at the airport. Additional items of equipment should be reserved as well, such as child car seats or satellite navigation systems.

Vehicles from Sixt are of very high quality, and are only late model vehicles with low mileage. The Chevrolet Spark, Fiat Grande Punto, Ford Fiesta and VW Chico Golf are examples of smaller vehicle models available at Cape Town Airport. These types of cars are a good choice for city driving, are easy to manage and even seat four or five passengers. They have room for one or two luggage items, but a larger vehicle may be more suitable for families and their luggage. Smaller vehicles are perhaps more ideal for single drivers or couples who will be exploring the city of Cape Town. Larger vehicles with better suspension are more comfortable for longer road trips.

Five passengers can be seated in the Nissan Tiida, which is a car with a manual or automatic transmission, as well as the Ford Focus Aut., BMW 320i Auto. and Mercedes-Benz C180 Auto. These vehicles are more elegant than the smaller rented cars, and have a limousine type car body. They can also store approximately two or three large luggage items, and two or three smaller items as well. Larger vehicles are also a popular choice among family renters and groups of travelers arriving at Cape Town Airport, and include the example vehicles of the Opel Zafira and VW Kombi. They are both MPV vehicles with a manual transmission. The Opel Zafira seats up to six people, while the VW Kombi can accommodate up to nine passengers, and a good load of luggage as well.

All vehicles available from Sixt, at Cape Town Airport, require primary renters to be at least 21 years of age, and to have held their drivers license for at least three years in their country of residence prior to the rental date.
