Although there are public transport systems in Cape Town, they are not entirely suited to the traveler and are not always reliable after hours. A self-drive tour starting in Cape Town and traveling through South Africa is a popular choice.
Avis Car Rental provides a delivery and collection facility to and from Cape Town Airport at a nominal fee. This facility is also available after hours, on weekends and public holidays. Contact Us for more information.
