Easy & Secure Car Hire Booking in 60 seconds!


On arrival at Cape Town International, Thrifty will get you on the road to your final destination without hesitation thanks to a wide range of options for car hire. Cape Town airport is the second largest major airport in South Africa and after a large number of renovations prior to the 2010 FIFA World Cup, it boasts all the amenities that one would expect from a world-class airport.

When travelling to Cape Town CBD, you will make just a short 18.4km trip down the N2 highway – a 15 minute drive if you travel outside of peak times. Cape Town offers visitors a number of options in terms of hotels, entertainment and attractions. Table Mountain is one landmark that is certainly difficult to miss, but you should also consider visiting the V&A Waterfront, or many of the beautiful beaches along the Atlantic Seaboard, including Clifton and Camps Bay.

If you are heading in the opposite direction, to the Cape Winelands, you will have to travel around 54kms to Paarl, while Stellenbosch is slightly closer, around 37kms out, which should take about 30 minutes – barring any traffic delays.

Make sure that you take a moment to rest following your flight though. Cape Town International has a wide range of restaurants and coffee shops where you can grab a bite to eat and refresh. Banking ATM’s cater for any cash needs, while those facing a long trip can stock up on magazines and snacks for the road.

Ensure that you don’t have to endure unnecessary delays by securing a vehicle with Thrifty now. It will take just a minute of your time, and you only need to put down a 50% reserve fee – which will be fully refundable if you are unable to complete your trip.

By taking the time in advance to book car hire, Cape Town airport will be a breeze!
