    Basher,
    Yes I did notice and as you say need to email the airline. It would be useful to have an additional 10kgs.

    Basher and others,
    I've gone through his thread but can't see anything about car hire- perhaps I've missed it? Could you let me know what you have gone for? Thanks.

    Yes, sorry, all the car hire suggestions were listed in earlier Cape Town threads.

    Here's a quote from last year:

    I also use these people sometimes:

    There are a number of small firms renting out cars for long term visitors too. You see those cars around, with a number to phone written on their rear windscreen. That number does label you as a tourist though. (And I can't find those numbers right now anyway.)


    Another route to go down is via the student car hire companies, as listed here:
    http://www.capeintern.com/transport/rent-a-car/
    I have used some of them in the past although often they have few cars available and if one of their fleet breaks down that mucks up all their bookings – once I booked a car way in advance and then found it was not available when I arrived. Cheaper vehicles can be hard to find over Xmas, New Year and for January and early February as that's peak visitor season in Cape Town.

    I'd say avoid the 'Best Beetle' company or other places still hiring old VW beetles – they may be cheap to rent but they eat fuel and oil and break down all the time."
