A very reliable agency, a lovely staff and perfect service. The person who took care of us gave us very good advice! I can only recommend Around About Cars if you want to rent a vehicle when you come to South Africa. It’s really a good company, you can trust it!

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.

My mom and I rented a car for 2 days to tour around Cape Town and Stellenbosch. From start to finish, the staff at Around About Cars, was incredibly friendly and helpful. Steve, at the front desk, was especially kind.

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

Aroundabout Cars have always offered our guests excellent service at very competitive rates over the past 20 years. This week Mr Beaton Kavuru literally went the extra mile to assist delivering a car to our Canadian guests. Thank you Beaton! Chris and Alison Piggott “Waterford Guest House”, Constantia, Cape Town

Great place to rent cars with extreme convenience.

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)

Perfect for a car rental in SA. Agreements are honored and the contract was fulfilled in every respect. Price / performance is absolutely the best in comparison. I can recommend aroundaboutcars in any case. (Translated by Google)

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

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

Cheers

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 ...

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.

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.

A big THANK YOU

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!

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.

2012-12-21


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

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

Hello,
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.

Sincerely,
Eric Cadesky

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!!”

“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”

2012-02-28


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 out for ourselves. Linda did his best to bridge this gap and was very helpful. The boot of the Chevrolet was a bit on the sparse side and next time I will get you to try and get me a Toyoto Corrolo 1.6 automatic which I believe is in the same range.

Once again many thanks for your assistance. I shall be grateful if you will share my comments with Gladstone and Linda and thank them both very warmly on my behalf.

Best wishes
Desmond Begley

Many thanks your e-mail with the quotation and I would like to make the booking so have completed the form below. Last time we were in the Cape we also used your company and picked up the car at the back of one of the offices after sorting out the paper work so not sure if you want my credit card details now. So please let me know.

I would also like to mention that having used your company before I find it remarkable that on both occasions your quotations were very competitive and your service extremely efficient. Well done. It is so refreshing to deal with a professional company.

Good morning.
I googled car hire in CTown this morning. Quite irritating exercise - got thru to two companies then struck gold. I spoke to Shauvy, instant professionalism, extremely helpful and friendly, this man knows his game and that makes a change - there is absolutely no way we would use anyone but yourselves. Just to confirm Shauvy, our debit card will be ok. Thank you much for “shortening” my journey to find a car hire.

Hi Megan,
First of all, I would like to convey my warmest regards to you. I appreciate all the assistance rendered, we had such a great time in S.A. Jo’burg. I was telling everybody how efficient AACars, and that if when they are going to rent a car, that they should get in touch with you. My husband is working for Lufthansa, so he is flying to Jo’burg almost twice a month, he will surely get in touch with as soon as he needed a car.
Once again, thank you so much, I will let you know when I am coming back again. Have a good day!

at your endeavour,
