Navigating Highways and Landmarks

The Cape can largely be split up into the Cape Town CBD, the Atlantic Seaboard, False Bay, The Winelands, the Southern and Northern Suburbs, the townships, the Cape Flats and the Helderberg/Somerset West area. Making the most of your stay is easiest by navigating the highways and orienting yourself with coastal landmarks and Table Mountain.

M5. The M5 connects Muizenberg to the Northern Suburbs.

N1. The N1 is a national road that starts in the CBD, runs past Century City, on through Bellville and out towards Paarl.

N2. The N2 is a national road that goes from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth, via Somerset West and along the coast.

Coastal roads. If you’re travelling for leisure you’ll certainly want to take the coastal road through Kalk Bay to Simon’s Town, or along Chapman’s Peak (between Noordhoek and Hout Bay).

If ever you want to get back to town or the Southern Suburbs – head towards Table Mountain (characterised by its flat top).


Business Travel Considerations

If you’re a business traveler, you’ll want to cut costs and save on corporate travel budgets where you can – avoiding Cape Town traffic and stay safe and secure while you do it. Here’s how:

1. Make car rental claims easily, with online bookings and assistance, which means a digital record.

2. Get in and out of the CBD quickly, by avoiding peak traffic times from 06:00 to 07:45 and 17:00 and 18:00.

3. Stay safe and secure. Be vigilant and follow these simple guidelines so that you can enjoy your trip rather than worrying about the safety and security of you and your things.

  • Don’t leave items visible in the car.
  • Keep your window rolled up.
  • Don’t allow people into your car to assist you.
  • Park in well lit and busy areas, where possible.
  • Keep the numbers for emergency personnel on your phone.

A cheap car rental in Cape Town is only the starting point for your next adventure into the Mother City. There’s so much more to do and explore. Book your rental online and get started.
