Newlands Guide

Newlands is one of Cape Town's poshest suburbs. It sits at the foot of Table Mountain south of the city centre. It is especially accessible to drivers with car rental in Newlands, who can freely travel back and forth between the natural attractions of Table Mountain and Cape Town city centre.

Newlands attracts visitors with its thriving sports scene made up of Newlands Cricket Ground, Newlands Stadium and a smaller rugby arena. The famous cricket ground is one of the world's most beautiful as it lies in the shadow of Devil's Peak. Both the cricket and rugby stadiums are located between Sport Pienaar and Campground roads.

South of the cricket ground, the local railway station is an ideal place to arrange cheap car hire in Newlands. The line continues south through the Southern Suburbs all the way to the coast. Heading north, it provides access to Cape Town city centre.

There are two major roads passing through the area, both of which connect the Southern Suburbs to the Cape Town city centre. Rhodes Drive (M3) is more prominent and passes to the west, while the lesser Kromboom Parkway passes to the east. Both are accessible to drivers with car hire in Newlands.

Capetown International Airport is the most likely port of entry for visitors in Newlands, and it's easy to drive from the terminal to the suburb by hire car. There are several routes, and while heading north to Settlers Way before turning east is a longer route (10 miles), it is also the fastest (under 20 minutes).

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?
