I had an amazing experience when I rented at Tempest Car Hire, through Around About Cars a Renault Cleo 900T Authentic. Around About Cars staff were so friendly, particularly the guy that assisted me with a booking. He literally went an extra mile, suggesting a longer term period at a reasonable cost, just to ensure that I enjoy my rental. To make the whole experience worthwhile & intrigue is that the car was new with very low km's & I was literally the first client to rent it out & it felt like my own. Even more, my deposit was paid back to me just when I needed it & I used it to cover things like schools fees for my kids. It felt like I had placed money on savings for the January month. The whole experience was fun & amazing. Thank you Around About Cars, I shall call again

Renting a car was easy. The location is convenient and the staff is helpful. I got to the office a little early and my car was read and waiting. It's hard to beat the cost... and no surprise extra charges like some other companies. Go here and be happy.

Very happy, a last minute car hire in the busiest time of year, AroundAboutCars were the only company that could help me. Very efficient, good prices and their replies to my query emails were very quick. Couldn't ask for better!

I would like to specifically commend a super patient, communicative, thorough and kind gentleman, Sikho Mphithi at the Bloem street, Cape Town branch for attending to my many queries in a superbly prompt timeline and for guiding me through a process when my family and I were under immense stress to find a vehicle at short notice.
Sikho went above and beyond an extra mile of service and he should be applauded for this continued great service. In the time we find ourselves in, people are quicker to criticise than praised-with more gentle kindness and praise, service agents can perform their tasks with less anxiety & customers would be more tolerant and accepting of the challneges faced by service agents.
BIG UP Around About CARS and especially Super Sikho!

Without a shadow of a doubt, Around About Cars is our 'go to' car hire company for our travel business across the whole of South Africa. Going direct to the 'big boy' companies always results in worse service and higher prices - do yourself a favour and start with AAC. You'll be glad you did.

No words can express how impressed i was. They made my 1st car hire to be so smooth and affordable. They organised me a vehicle at OR Tambo and it was so affordable, yet comfortable. Unlimited Kilometres made it even more enjoyable. AroundAboutCars is the only way to get around foreign towns in style. they have the most affordable holding deposit for unlimited mileage cars ever

Sandi Lingani

October 2020

This has by far the most convenient and reliable car rental i have come across, the first time i hired a car with them, i was in luck of getting my hands on their new fleet, brand new car are you kidding me, each time i had to return the car I'd be grumpy because with their cars, you just want to be on the road all the time . And i just love the consistency in the company as a whole, you just don't have to speak to the specific person, the company values as the mission and the vision is known by each and every staff member, when you request information, you get the same information from all of them not different bits this is what a real business needs, people who are the back bone and the concrete structure, I'm forever inspired

I had an amazing experience with Tempest Car Rental through Around about Cars. Everything is done by them ( around about cars) with no questions asked at the pick up branch. I remember the last rental I was quoted cheaper rates but when arrived at the branch my card was debited with different ( higher rates/ their rates) as I get home contacted around about cars letting them know about my experience they immediately rectified that. The branch called me and ask if they should do a refund on my card or when extending the rental as I normally do I pay lesser. I chose to pay lesser on my next extension, easy like that. I'm sure if I have made the booking straight to them and this happen to me I wouldn't have gotten the refund quickly ! Around about Cars is the best for me!

The best and most convenient car rental in Pretoria, with friendly and helpful staff, especially Raymond Selokela ,he will move mountains to make sure you get the car that you want , he knows what is customer satisfaction ,again what I like the most is that if you are far from the branch , you don't have to stress about going to the branch to pay for extensions, simply EFT the money to their account and your extension is done, simple as that . VIVA AROUND ABOUT CARS VIVA !!! PHAMBILI NGE AROUND ABOUT CARS PHAMBILI.!!!

Every staff member that I dealt with was professional and went all out to give me the best service. I had a problem woth the company that I hired from, they did not want to pay the refund me upon the return of the vehicle, I contacted AroundAbout Cars amd explained the situation, they intervened and contacted the company on my behalf, and payment was done shortly after that. I have been recommending them to friends and family eversince, may they continue with the good work they are doing. Thanks

I started Booking Car rental with AroundAboutCars in 2018. I was checking cars in November for December Holidays and all cars were expensive and some already taken. So I did some searching I found AroundAboutCars their prices were so reasonable I book the car with them, First did not trust the numbers that they were giving me until the day I went to fetch the car. Everything was book I got the car so cheap for 18 days. Now I just come from EC with the car I booked with AroundAboutCars what they advertise is what they give you. They make sure that you get a reasonable prices and your are certified with your rental. I will use AroundAboutCars because of their Honesty and making sure they meet their customers standards and needs. AroundAboutCars is always willing to help a customer. People can start using AroundAboutCars and they will see what I am talking about.

I have used AroundAboutCars regularly for my trips to South Africa, in Johannesburg as well as in Cape Town. They have always provided no-nonsense service, advising me on how to save money while choosing the best options for a truly 'peace of mind' experience. Whenever I plan a trip to South Africa, I know car hire is one less thing to worry about with AroundAboutCars!

In the last 6 years working together with the Team of AROUNDABOUTCARS Cape Town, i can just say, it is a great helpful and friendliy Team. Looking foward booking cars for my guests again. Look after yourselves and stay safe.

Vinesh Krishna

Good Morning,

Please take note that a mere "thank you"  over the phone directly to him is really not enough. 

An organization may have employees but  although no face to face interaction was encountered me as the client needs to make and the opportunity to commend and applaude this particular employee Sikho Mphithi.

His diligence, self-motivation as well as dedication to always go the extra mile in order to achieve the best possible results is really admirable and was displayed evidently. 

I am confidently saying this as the factors that I mentioned as above was so clear in the telephonic engagement to undetake all off the chopping and changing and assisting with the challenges that were encountered to ensure that I achieved a positive outcome an successfully reached Durban.

The management team needs to know that as a client the Krishna family take our hat off and commend you Sikho Mphithi the way you undertook your job and we want to assure you that your efforts are significantly appreciated.

I have hired cars from |Around About Cars for years! I travel to Cape Town for work often, and they were recommended to me by a friend, and I recommend them to anyone visiting Cape Town. Great service, great cars—especially if you need an automatic, like me—and super friendly staff. This most recent visit, Steve assisted me both when I picked up the car and when I dropped it off, and he made me feel like an old friend that was returning home. Will definitely keep coming back.

Great price and people, the thing is the will only fill the car at one gas station and that just raises concerns, if you come back the guy there will go and fill it with you to a gas station where all of them know each other, it is just weird.

Ladies and Gentle at Roundaboutcars, First and foremost I would like to thank you ever so much for your professionalism and un-paralleled support from enquiries, to booking the car and eventually collecting and support even during the booking period itself. Words cannot express how grateful myself and family are to your support and professionalism. You contributed to a very excitable holiday and for that I am forever grateful for your support. Thank you very much to everyone who managed to put up with me during the chopping and changing of the preferred car higher lol.


Am now so much looking forward to my next holiday and booking another car through you. I can assure you that I will be recommending your company and its
service to my friends and relatives alike. It was a pleasure to do business with you and once again thank you thank you. 30 Days of total bliss and money well spent on the higher. One thing I really enjoyed, unlike other rental cars, the price you get on quotation is what you pay. No nasty surprises at the reception asking you to top up on hidden fees. Greatest of all times

Unfortunately, I am very disappointed, after I found that I allegedly have consumed 444 km for 374 km (small car) I once had to refuel and when I left the car, the needle showed almost fully, which strangely more than 10 liters again. Certainly the car was not “completely” full when I got it. When I asked for clarification that this could not be, I was comforted to the next day, I’m still waiting for a recall (4 days ago). Complaints are probably not like it. The manager did not call me anyway as promised! The car had only 1.2 bar on the tire after 3 days, was apparently not tested before. The other problem was that the car was very hard to shift and you could barely climb the mountain uphill. Staff otherwise nice, as long as you have no complaints .... Unfortunately, absolutely not recommendable, in response to my problem I would like to leave another recession! (Translated by Google)

Great service so far. Steve at the desk is very kind. We got a pretty good deal for 50 days. You can cross the boarders, and the cars are pretty much new.

Nice car, good service and really friendly staff. Especially was this guy named Steve really nice who helped me find something I forgot in the car and drove me back to the hotel since I didn’t have data to order Uber on my phone.

Totally recommend this company!

I have recently hired a car from this terrific team, one of a few so far. I booked last minute and failed to submit some important booking information before hoping on to a longhaul flight to Cape Town. Ordinarily, one would have expected them to have cancelled the booking during this peak period. Incomplete details and no communication for the duration of my flight, all at my own fault. Upon arriving in Cape Town, my sim card had expired and so communication could only be done via email, but Beaton Kavuru pulled out all the stops and ensured I had a car available to me and facilitated all the necessary documentation efficiently. I found him to go above and beyond in service, and I look forward to hiring again in the future from AroundAboutCars. Thank you guys. Your service is consistently outstanding!

Hello Geoff, Raymond et al,
Best wishes for a happy and successful 2015. On behalf of Duncan and myself I would like to say a HUGE thank you for upgrading our Hire Car. The Toyota Carolla was great You have no idea how often we mentioned your names on our way to and from Port St Johns. You changed our travel from arduous to pleasurable, if 1344kms in 1 hit can be pleasurable! Your kindness and thoughtfulness was greatly appreciated. See you anon

Kindest Regards
Dagny and Duncan


We have been travelling round the Cape and enjoyed excellent personal service from all at Aroundaboutcars for the past seven years. We are amazed at the ability of Audrey and thank the involvement of Ray and past members of the team who have since left. Our recent experience with First/Sixt was by far the best yet with superb welcoming and introductory service and a choice of vehicle. We will definitely be back soon and many thanks to the AAC team and their partners. Best wishes Sue & Peter Doble



Hello everyone,
Thanks, that’s nice. I was with you last winter and had rented a car. You have me even to the hotel and back down because I had forgotten papers at the hotel. I’m sure you supplied German beer. Maybe you remember? This year I am again .. maybe in South Africa, but rather in the Drakensberg and in March and April.
I see you are well. Thanks for the greeting I was very happy! You all the best and a good time! photos from last year enclosed ...



5 star excellent
Around about cars consistently gives excellent service. I have been renting from them for years and always recommend them highly to visitors to Cape Town

Dear Sir
Your colleagues are just the best. It is not just a complement. I mean it. You email is just another flattering and fine gesture.

Thanks again Marina


Hallo there
Just a note to say thank you very much for the service I have received from your company. I discovered that the car that I was renting had a puncture on my return from my meeting. It was getting dark and your office sent me a replacement vehicle within 45 minutes. Thanks again for the excellent service.

Best regards


Hi Beaton,
Just a note to thank you and all at Aroundaboutcars for the excellent service I received during my recent car hire. From the arrangement between yourselves and First/Sixth to get the right car and the pick up and collection of myself from Parker Cottage by your driver also the GPS. Everything was first class.


Barry Lytton


Hey Beaton
Thanks hey!
And thank you for my last rental and the way you conducted the booking for me! that’s why I will make use of you guys now everytime!

Thank you so much! Regards


Good day
My name is Johnson Thekiso I would like to take this opportunity to complement Beaton who gave me good customer service from the time I book the car until he makes sure I get my refund in time, hope his service will not go unnoticed big up to the guy I wish he will be rewarded for that.



It was a pleasure meeting you this evening. I must say this was the best car rental experience I have had in many years. The States have gone a bit downhill in the car rental business, with price competition forcing quality of service to slide. The way you handle the phone conversation, the mid-Town pickup, and detailed walk-through of the rental agreement was perfect. As a former business developer of fifteen years, I pay attention to these things, and as such, reached out for the potential of the internship for my adopted daughter Lindah.


Dear all,
We are now back in England, UK, after a wonderful 3 weeks spent in Cape Town and nearby. I should like to say a sincere Thankyou to Aroundaboutcars for all your help once more in organising a car for us during our stay. We were delighted with the arrangements and would like to express special thanks to Gladstone for his invaluable assistance in taking us to collect the car from First/Sixt Car Rental at the airport. His presence and advice were very much appreciated. In fact we should have struggled to sort things out without his presence. We certainly hope to return to Cape Town within the next 12 months to visit our family again and I should be very happy if you would agree to provide a car for us on that occasion as well. We were extremely pleased with the Mercedes C180 Automatic provided (who wouldn’t be!?) and we should probably like something similar next time - either that or a Toyota Corolla or Chevrolet possibly. Would you be able to arrange that or should I need to approach First Car Rental direct? Or maybe you are both part of the same company?? Anyway, a huge Thank you again to everyone concerned for the great service provided. We look forward to our next visit to you.

Best Wishes,
Brian Daniels


Dear Geoff,

My wife and I wanted to thank you for the fact that we’ve got a Chev Aveo through First Car Rental for two months (16 Sept - 14 Nov) with a good discount from you. This time everything went fine. No problems with the car, etc. So, once again, thank you very much for your generous offer!

Best regards, Winnie and Dick den Hertog

I would like to thank Wayne and everyone, Please note that I will put a big smile on helloPeter and trip advisor! The car was good and the service was excellent!!!
My pleasure and sorry for the push!. Until next time


Your publication advertises Aroundabout car rental.

I wish to commend to you and your readers this car rental agent. After an unfortunate start, I have received nothing but help and co-operation from their staff. Do not heisitate to call them. I particularly commend Gail Straus for her excellent service.

We hired a car from Around about Cars for our 4 week South African holiday picking and returning the car at Cape Town Airport. we also rented a Navman from them. All in all we found the service excellent, the car (a Nissan Tiida) went well and the price and value for money was the best we could find. We would certainly use Around about Cars again.


Good job! Looking forward to rent boats from you guys 😉


The staff were most obliging and pleasant. Their offices & cars were spotless. I enjoyed doing business with them.


Thank you for the confirmation. I rented from Aroundabout during my last visit to South Africa and was impressed with the excellent service and quality.
Quick question: did I read correctly that I do not have to fill the car with petrol? Will I be charged for the petrol that is added? If I am charged, is it at the same rate at the pumps, or another price? Here in North America rental companies charge twice the going rate for petrol, so we always fill up right before dropping off the car.
Thank you for your continued excellent service and for letting me know about the petrol.

Don’t worry, 20 Bloem Street is on our list of “first things to do in CT”. You have all been so kind and welcoming to your wonderful country (we know, we were there back in 2006)

PS If only to collect the wine and chocs . . . .

Janet and John


We swear by Aroundabout Cars, and couldn’t imagine using another car hire company for our upcoming return to South Africa. This December we will return for the holidays and a chance to celebrate with family and friends.

Enjoy your day. Take care. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hi Wayne,
Thanks for that it really is confusing on the E toll. Its a crazy idea anyway! Earlier this year we decided to relocate to JHB from the Cape, after searching the net for vehicle hire & mailing some companies for quotes I came across your company. Your staff had all the patients with me as a 1st time user of this service. Your rates were great, you offered a large variety of vehicles & we found a suitable one. The rest is history..we collected our vehicle the Hyundai H1, went home & loaded. The vehicle was a dream to drive, we took it slow & enjoyed the travelling. It was back in time & our deposit was refunded timeously. We looked after the vehicle so obviously got our full deposit back as well. Thanks again to all the staff that had to deal with me - you made a great impression & so I am calling on you again…We need to go home!!”

Lynn Naude


Hi there,
I hired the H1 panelbus from yourselves in June this year when we moved from the Cape to JHB. We had wonderful service & a great trip enhanced by this wonderful vehicle thank you! I am hoping we can do another trip with your company..
Thanking you

Lynn Naude


Thank you for the professional service Gail, Gladstone and team

Kind regards Nick


Hi there,
Your customer service is like nothing I have ever experienced. I am very impressed already and I haven’t even met you.

Thanks again,
Jackie Cawthra


“Thanks Gail you have been most helpful, we are looking forward to our trip to SA, it will be our 3rd visit but this time we can stay longer having just retired after 45 years working for ourselves ! After serving the public for the last 45 years I know and appreciate good service when I receive it ! Raymond Lodge”


Hi wayne,
Thank you very much for this good service. We will enjoy, thanks.



I just wanted to thank your team for their assistance with the hired car, I think it was O’Brien who met us at the airport. Good service.

Many Thanks


“A HUGE thank you to Gail and team for their incredibly professional service and for helping us arrange our camper hire for our holiday.. It’s not often I encounter South African service which is so helpful and so faultless… if you need a camper van or a holiday rental… THIS is where you should look 1st”


Dear Monica,
Having just arrived back in London following a most enjoyable stay in South Africa I felt I should write to say how pleased we were with both the drivers, Linda and Gladstone, you allocated to us as part of the car hire arrangement. They both were very polite and very helpful and Gladstone in particular was a first class ambassador for Around About Cars. We were impressed not only by his unfailing courtesy but also by his timeliness and extremely helpful disposition. I cannot tell you how grateful we are and as senior citizens it really was reassuring to have someone so caring and just so nice assisting us. When we next return to Cape Town I can tell you our first port of call for our car hire requirements will be you essentially because of Gladstone.

The car itself was not up to our usual standard but it was ok. Tempest were fine to deal with though the handover left something to be desired as we were largely left to fathom things o
