KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Hermanus

  • Car hire in Hermanus ensures you have total flexibility with your onwards journey. This means you can drive at a time suitable for you and go directly to your destination, which isn’t always possible with alternative methods of transport. For instance, you can drive to Kleinmond in approximately 40 minutes. As there aren’t any public transport options for this route, the alternative would be to wait for a taxi
  • Cape Town Airport (CPT) is relatively close to Hermanus, which makes it a great place to collect your hire car from. After you have landed, passed through Immigration and picked up your bags, you’ll be able to find the car hire branches easily. For example, you can find SIXT inside the Arrivals Hall, whilst Alamo is a short shuttle ride away. Your Hermanus car hire provider will need to you to complete the required documentation, show valid ID and pay, before they will take you to your vehicle.
  • Car hire in Hermanus is an ideal way to explore the town and its nearby surroundings. To make things even easier for you, you’ll be pleased to hear that the driving style in this town is calm and considerate. The closer you get to Cape Town, the more aggressive driving will get though. You should keep an eye out for pedestrians crossing the road, even though jaywalking is prohibited. It’s also necessary to regularly consult your mirrors, as there are lots of moped drivers on the roads too.
  • When driving Hermanus hire car, you will notice that traffic gets relatively busy. During rush hour, which is normally from about 8:00 to 9:00 and 16:00 to 18:00, drivers also head to and from work, so the roads get even busier. You can avoid these times on the roads if you’re not a confident driver, and instead stick to driving in the late morning and early afternoon. The R43 is one of the busiest roads that goes through Hermanus, but an alternative road that you can try is one of the back roads, such as Magnolia Street, which should be quieter.
  • Book your rental car in Hermanus at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
