Car Hire

During the conference a number of activities and transport to evening meals have been organized and thus car hire during the week should not be necessary. However, Cape Town International Airport hosts all major car rental companies. These include Avis, Budget, Europcar, Sixt, Hertz, Tempest, Thrifty.
Rates for car hire in South Africa are reasonably inexpensive starting at approximately R280/day. All these rental companies operate online booking sites.
