The city of Cape Town needs little introduction. It’s known worldwide as a diverse and liberal metropolis that has it all, from award-winning wine farms and urban mountains to pristine beaches and a vibrant city centre. The best way to explore this destination is, needless to say, by car.

The city offers many scenic routes to top attractions like Table Mountain, Hout Bay, Simon’s Town and a multitude of other interesting places. The renowned V&A Waterfront is another top spot that all tourists need to visit when travelling to Cape Town. It is home to several local and international shops and loads of famous restaurants that offer delectable meals with priceless views of the ocean.

Seeing as tourists’ spots in Cape Town tend to be outside of walking distance from each other, making your trip to Cape Town a car rental adventure might just make your experience even more worthwhile!

Self-drive holidays entail that you drive yourself around in a new destination. Thus, you do not rely on tour groups, public transport or chartered travel services to get around. The practical advantages of these self-drive trips are numerous. They give travellers the chance to explore their destinations at their own pace, offer more comfort for families or groups travelling together and it is often a lot cheaper to arrange self-drive trips than booking experiences with tour groups that include all travel.

“Cape Town is definitely best explored by car. Seeing as there is so much to do, having the freedom to stop at the sight you want to spend time at is a luxury that all travellers should give themselves,” said Chanele van Tonder, Marketing Executive of Hertz South Africa.

As mentioned, Cape Town and its surrounding areas are famous for the myriad of wine farms it hosts. These wine estates offer guests the chance to experience their wines at the cellars in world-class tasting rooms and this is undoubtedly something that any wine lover has to experience. There are several wine routes that tourists can consider, but the Cape Winelands Wine Route is by far one of the best options to go with.

Of course, when doing wine tasting, driving yourself is completely out of the question. Luckily, Hertz South Africa has the perfect solution!

“We offer a reliable, professional Chauffeur Services in Cape Town and surrounding areas. With this service, our drivers collect clients and take them to their next destination,” said Van Tonder.

This Chauffeur Service can be booked at any of the Hertz Car Hire branches in Cape Town. In fact, Hertz has a branch in Stellenbosch – the heart of the Cape Winelands – making it the perfect place to book a chauffeur from.

Hertz South Africa has several branches throughout Cape Town as well. Travellers who are looking to rent a car to get around the city on their own terms should look no further than booking a car with them. Their most popular branches are located at Cape Town International Airport and in the City Centre.

“We really want to make it as easy as possible for clients to book a car or a chauffeur from us. That is why we have designed our website to be as user-friendly as possible when booking from your laptop in your office or you mobile when out and about. Our friendly call centre agents can also assist clients with bookings, either telephonically or via email,” explained Van Tonder.
