Cape Town, South Africa, March 17, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- With visitors already arriving in South Africa’s major cities in droves, car rental options across the country are fast becoming fully booked as tourists from neighbouring cities and abroad make their pre-FIFA arrangements. Drive South Africa advises travellers to be prepared, and organise key travel plans such as hiring of vehicles as soon as possible in order to avoid disappointment when the heavy influx of visitors arrives in June.
The majority of airlines within South Africa will be planning to take advantage of the huge demand for vehicles to rent, which will result in escalated prices – something that many travellers do not factor on, causing frantic last-minute budgeting once arriving in the country. Not planning ahead also brings further worries that suitable vehicles will be able to be rented, especially as certain models are in huger demand due to their popularity. The Drive South Africa office has reported that models such as SUVs, Family Cars, 4x4 Double Cabs and People Carrier models are the models that are most in demand, so travellers requiring one of these car hire models should ensure that they book well in advance to ensure disappointment. Smaller cars such as Kia Picanto, Toyota Yaris and other light city cars are in bigger surplus, but that does not give any guarantee that there will be available cars within this group when it gets closer to the 2010 games kickoff. Depending on the size of travel groups, travellers can choose the right size and type of vehicle to best suit their needs.
Vehicles can be rented out for short-term daily leases or for longer-term monthly leases – this makes car rental in South Africa
an economical and convenient way to travel within the country throughout the World Cup duration. The main host cities are Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban, with additional towns including Port Elizabeth, Nelspruit, Rustenberg, Bloemfontein and Pretoria. For travellers wanting to avoid the busy and not always reliable public transport, hiring a vehicle is the best option to get from one venue to the next. A reputable agency such as Drive South Africa also offers an included insurance plan with every vehicle, and GPS enabled cars are also on offer for a small extra cost. These are pre-loaded with up to date maps of every city in South Africa, and are helpful to prevent travellers from getting lost.
To ensure that your World Cup 2010 experience is a positive and highly rewarding one, ensure that you do not leave crucial arrangements such as finding suitable transport and accommodation to the last minute.
