What does SHUTTLE BUS mean?
SHUTTLE BUS is an option which some rental car agencies offer in order to pick up the car. On our website, you can select a local supplier directly located at the airport. However, SHUTTLE BUS is a free bus or minibus service provided by the local car rental agency. The bus can be easily found in the front of the arrival hall and will take you to the car rental office in order to pick up your car. If you have any difficulties with finding the SHUTTLE BUS of your rental car agency on arrival, please call the telephone number from the local company on your car rental voucher. They will instruct you on how to find the bus and arrive at the office.
Can I travel with my pet?
Traveling with your pet is not allowed, unfortunately. This is a general rule for all car rental companies. This regulation is mainly provided in order to make your travel safe and keep our cars as clean as possible. Pets, as we know leave hackles on the upholstering which can be difficult to remove. In many countries, there are special law and safety procedures regarding travel with animals. Special cages or seatbelts that rental car companies do not provide are necessary to transport animals.
What is Collision Damage Waiver with excess?
Collision Damage Waiver it is a damage insurance coverage that is available and usually included in the rental rate. The Collision Damage Waiver most likely has an excess amount, which you will be responsible for. The security deposit will be blocked at your credit card on arrival at the local office. The deposit is an amount for which you can be held liable in case of damage/theft of the vehicle. It means that the particulate amount of money can be taken from the blocked if you cause any damage to the car during the car rental period. Damage to or loss of tires, windscreens, glass, and undercarriage may not be covered by the Collision Damage Waiver. When the car is returned in the same conditions as it was picked up from the office your security will be unblocked.
Do I need an international drivers licence to rent a car in Cape Town?
A valid driver´s license is required to be able to rent a car. You will need an international license along with your own home license if you are renting a car out of the country where your home license was issued. It is always recommended to check further requirement in the local traffic department where you home license was issued. We always recommend strongly having an international driver´s license with you when you are going for holidays abroad. The local car rental company can refuse to give you the car if you do not present it.
Are the cars non smoking or I can choose option for smokers?
All our cars are non-smoking and there is no possibility to choose a car where you can smoke in. Why? This rule is mainly settled up due to your safety and comfort. In many countries it is forbidden to smoke when driving and if the local police stop you can get a high fine. Hot ash from the cigarette can destroy the car seat or other parts of the car when falls on the upholstering. It also leaves a very unpleasant smell which is very difficult to remove and therefore forbidden. Other customers can refuse to take a car like this.
