Cars :: From A to B with cheap car rentals

Cheap car rental seems to be the way forward as more and more of us start feeling what the clever people in Wall Street are calling, 'the credit crunch'. Times are tough and although most of us feel the need to scale down on needless expenditures, when holiday times roll around we still get that itchy feeling that seems to scream, "It's time to hit the road buddy!"

The good news is that whether you are looking for car rental in Cape Town to explore the sights or heading on a road trip with some friends, there are cars hire options that won't end up costing you bits of vital anatomy. All you have to do is set aside those niggling illusions of grandeur and settle for a car that will get you where you want to be without costing the earth. Okay, chances are you won't have the girls on Camps Bay beach waving their Jimmy Choos in your face, but that's overrated anyway.

Let's discuss some of the car rental options that will best suit a strained budget over this festive season.



1. Opel Corsa 1.2 L

This sturdy little guy has a decidedly youthful appearance and simple handling capability, which explains why it is the cheap car rental of choice for so many twenty-something's. It also boasts very conservative fuel consumption and various little extra's that should make your trip a more comfortable one (including folding rear seats, air-conditioning, cup holders and remotely adjustable side mirrors). To rent the Opel Corsa for a week will set you back around R1400, which is not too bad all things considered.



2. VW City Golf

You can hardly throw a rock in any direction in the Mother City without hitting a loved-up Golf, and for good reason. As the entry-level Volkswagen vehicle, this little car has a lot going for it. The legendary Volkswagen design has culminated in a cheap, practical ride that can be easily repaired at nominal cost should anything ever go wrong (which it hardly ever does). Since the dashboard has been redesigned, the VW Golf has gained a lot of points in the looks department and there is a lot to be said for a vehicle that gives you approximately 14 kilometres to the litre even if you have a trigger-happy driving foot. Renting a VW Golf for a week costs around R1600.

3. Nissan Tiida 1.6L

Easy to drive and practical to the core, the Nissan Tiida is known worldwide as a 'best performance for value' vehicle. As a car rental, you couldn't ask for a more sensible ride. Power steering, drivetrain enhancements and sleek exterior design combine to create a vehicle that is as much a pleasure to look at as it is to drive. Sit back in air-conditioned luxury as you view all that Cape Town has to offer from the comfort of your Nissan Tiida. If you plan to rent the Nissan Tiida 1.6L for a week, you should budget for around R2500.

These are just a few of the affordable car hire options available on the market today. If you are interested in inexpensive car rental in South Africa there are many ways to go about it. Flick through the Yellow Pages and see what pops up or go the more technologically savvy route and see what Google recommends. Just make sure to do your homework properly. Reputable car rental agencies have a certain look and feel to their websites and ad campaigns. If something looks and feels dodgy, it probably is. Rather play it safe and ensure that your cheap car rental experience is a pleasant one.

What You Need To Know Before Traveling To South Africa

Visiting Africa conjures up images of jungles, safaris and elephants, deserts and adventure (at least,it does for me!) While Africa indeed contains all these elements, visiting South Africa is an easy choice for most Westerners because they speak the same language (English) and have a variety of cosmopolitan and modern culture that balances the unsullied wilds. In fact, South Africa has an immense range of opportunities for travelers, whether you're looking for a rugged adventure, a food and wine tour or a sp

Cricket Fans Visiting South Africa For The Ipl Should Check Name Changes Of Provinces & Cities

Cricket fans coming to South Africa for the IPL tournament from 18 April - 24 May should understand that they have a good chance of being confused and lost if they attempt to navigate their way around SA. This is due to the abundance of new names for certain provinces, town & cities.

Firstly, the former four provinces that make up South Africa are now divided into nine. Some of the changes include (former name / present name in bold):

Transvaal / Gauteng, Northern Transvaal / Limpopo, Eastern Transvaal / Mpumalanga.



Limpopo, named after the magnificent river that creates its northern border, lies adjacent to neighbouring countries Zimbabwe, Botswana and Mozambique and it is for this reason that it is steeped in culture and heritage. Here there are many archaeological sites that document early advanced civilisations, including the Mapangubwe World Heritage Site where gold figures dating back thousands of years have been discovered. This area is also home to the rain queen - the Modjadji who it is believed has the power to bring rain to the land of her people.

To add to visitors'' confusion, many of the towns and cities now have new names, as the following alphabetical list shows:

Warmbaths / Bela-Bela, Durban / Ethekwini, Louis Trichardt / Makhado, Nabomspruit / Lephalale, Nystroom / Modimole. Potgietersrus / Mokopane, Ermelo / Msukaligwa,

Messina / Mussina, Pietersburg / Polokwane, Pretoria / Tshwane.

"To avoid making costly and time consuming mistakes when travelling, one should make use of a reputable transport company or tour operator," advises Robert Wilson, CEO of Magic Marketing and travel in South Africa . net. "Thinking that you can merely hire a car and start driving around is not the way to go as the maps you read are quite likely to show old names and directions. A much better plan is the study the geography of SA on the internet before you travel and use operators who know the country and the customs."

The IPL matches are schedule to be played in eight venues: Bloemfontein (Free State Province), Cape Town (Western Cape), Durban (Kwa Zulu Natal), East London (Eastern Cape), Johannesburg (Gauteng), Kimberley (Northern Cape) Port Elizabeth (Eastern Cape) and Pretoria (Gauteng) and teams are: Rajasthan Royals, Chennai Super Kings, Mumbai Indians, Kings XI Punjab, Delhi Daredevils, Kolkata Knightriders, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Deccan Chargers.

As tickets are limited, it is also advisable to book your match tickets and tour packages as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
