Cape Town, South Africa, April 24, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- As one of the country’s premier rental agencies, Drive South Africa have had years of experience arranging car hire in South Africa
. Visitors are able to choose from a wide range of vehicles, according to their travel requirements, and are also able to select the booking period that suits them best. Those planning to stay in South Africa for the entire duration of the FIFA World Cup would be best off considering a long term monthly rental option, which is a cost-effective option in the long run, and also includes insurance. Travellers can also choose to have GPS enabled vehicles as an added extra – a must to help get around South Africa without getting lost.
The primary types of vehicles available to hire at Drive South Africa fall into different category groups, and range from Group L vehicles (Citi Golfs and similar small models) to Group AS (Hyundai Atos or similar, with features such as air con, radio and so on), as well as Group BS car hire options (VW Polo or similar sedan type cars) and Group F models (Kia Sportage and other similar 4x4 or 4x2 SUV type cars), and many other groups and models in between. In addition to basic car rental, travellers who are not under budget constraints can also consider luxury vehicles for their hired car. Drive South Africa offers some of the world’s finest cars, from elegant Mercedes coupes or Bentleys to sleek BMWs, stylish Porsches, and speed machines such as Ferrari or Aston Martin.
While hiring a luxury vehicle to take you to World Cup soccer stadiums across the country may be a good option for travellers who have the budget for extravagance and style, many visitors will be on a tight budget. Accommodation costs, flights, World Cup game tickets and all the other travel expenses that go hand in hand with month long trips can add up, making it hard to find any funds leftover for day to day living. One option that could help save on accommodation costs is to consider hiring a camper instead of a regular car. This is an excellent car hire option for friends or family in a larger group, state Drive South Africa travel experts, as it helps to save on accommodation costs. Travellers can all contribute towards the hire costs (which are extremely competitive for monthly rates), and have the added advantage of being able to set off on self-drive adventures across the country’s many excellent destinations during the times when you are not watching the soccer.
Visitors who are coming to South Africa alone, or with partners or small groups would be best advised to consider a simple car such as the Group L Citi Golfs or similar – especially if the main type of driving they plan to do is tarred roads and city driving. A 4x4 hire is best for those who would prefer to be able to explore the country’s scenic routes, and visitors have a range of options to consider in terms of price and models.
Drive South Africa is able to advise travellers on all aspects of travel, from hiring a car to booking activities and tours across South Africa. Visitors can even find and book a range of accommodation options across the country during their stay. This ensures that all travellers are able to relax and enjoy their stay in South Africa during the World Cup and beyond, with everything from car to guest house sorted.
