Economy car rental holidays- travel South Africa Powered By Docstoc
					Economy car rental has come a long way and today, car hire in South Africa
represents an affordable transportation option for both tourists and locals alike.
Whether you are looking to go on an extended road trip around the country or merely
need a vehicle to get you from point A to point B, car rental companies in South
Africa are bound to have a package that is right for you.

A diverse and beautiful country, South Africa holds many wonders for the discerning
traveller. Why not try a nice leisurely road trip along the Eastern Coast for your next
holiday? It is not called the Sunshine coast for nothing and travelling in this lovely
part of the country will give you plenty of opportunities to soak up some culture and
experience the legendary local hospitality.

Start your trip in Cape Town. Car hire in Cape Town, South Africa is safe and reliable.
If you are coming in by plane, you can organise an airport car rental which is an
excellent way of avoiding the unnecessary hassle of hailing a taxi-cab to initially ferry
you about. The Mother City provides travellers with a whole host of accommodation
options, but some come more highly recommended than others. If you are looking for
luxury, you'll probably enjoy a stay at the stately Mount Nelson Hotel. Alternatively,
The Guesthouse Es-Cape represents the cosier end of the accommodation spectrum.
Once you're booked in, get your walking shoes on and start exploring. Go for a ride
on the Table Mountain Cable Cars; head out to the Constantia Valley for some wine
tasting or simply stroll around Green Market Square, picking up bits and bobs for
family and friends back home.

The next leg of our South African adventure takes us to Hermanus. A charming
seaside village on the Southern Coast, this town is home to the legendary Whale
Festival. With its unparalleled scenic beauty, upmarket shops and endless adventure
options, it's little wonder that Hermanus has grown exponentially in size and
popularity during the last decade. Stop in at Rossi's Italian restaurant and dig into a
steaming bowl of pasta before setting out for a whale watching cruise with Walker
Bay Adventures.

Next, turn your economy car rental in the direction of Knysna. One of the Garden
Route′s most famous travel destinations, Knysna is situated between lush forests
and the shores of a peaceful estuary, offering many activities and attractions. Book in
at the Blue Oyster B&B and set out for the Knysna Elephant Park. Here you can
experience the famous Knysna forest alongside African elephants and enjoy a guided
nature walk through the indigenous foliage at elephant pace. This is a once in a
lifetime opportunity to follow in the footsteps of these incredible creatures. Round off
this spiritual experience with sundowners at The Knysna Oyster Company.

We end our brief coastal trip in Port Elizabeth. Recently renamed Nelson Mandela
Bay, Port Elizabeth is regarded as the "official" gateway to the scenic Eastern Cape
Province and the world renowned Garden Route. The Admiralty Beach House
provides affordable, yet comfortable, luxury self-catering units with en suite
bathrooms, separate entrances and private patios - perfect if you don't want to be tied
down with dining schedules and the like. Port Elizabeth's Oceanarium is simply a
must on any animal lover's itinerary. Their wildly popular dolphin and seal
performances take place at 11h00 and 15h00 daily, after which you can head over to
the Butcher's Block for a bite to eat.

 At this stage it might be a good idea to have a professional take a look at your car
hire. Port Elizabeth has many reputable mechanical establishments and it's always a
good idea to take proper care of your economy car rental, lest you have to pay hefty
surcharges at the end of your trip!
