Cape Town on a budget

If you are thinking of travelling to Cape Town but are not sure if you can afford it do not despair. Here are some tips on how to get the best out of a trip to Cape Town without breaking the bank.


If you are travelling to Cape Town one of the top tips would be Cape Town car hire. Public transport in Cape Town is not particularly reliable or extensive and metered taxies in Cape Town are fairly expensive and hard to find. Depending on how long you are planning to stay in Cape Town and how much sightseeing you want to do car hire will often work out cheaper  and is a lot more convenient. Car hire will also give you the freedom to explore the city and its surrounds at your own pace and make sure you really experience all the great sights and sounds that Cape Town has to offer.


When looking for accommodation in Cape Town there are a lot of different options which one can choose from. Cape Town offers a myriad of guest houses and hotels to suit every taste and budget but if you really want to experience the best of Cape Town on a budget then a backpackers may be the best choice for you.
In South Africa backpackers are the equivalent of the hostels you find in Europe. They offer cheap no frills accommodation to travellers on a budget. Cape Town backpackers are perfect for the traveller who is planning to go out and experience the city and simply needs a place to rest their head at night. With any rental vehicle through Around About Cars you will be entitled to discounted accommodation from a number of backpackers in the infamous "Coast to Coast".
