About Cape Town International Airport

South Africa's next-busiest airport after Johannesburg, Cape Town International Airport is an award-winning facility located 20 km from downtown Cape Town. You can fly directly from Cape Town to Johannesburg and Durban, as well as to a range of other domestic airports,Asia, Europe, and other African destinations. In fact, Cape Town to Johannesburg is one of the world's busiest air routes, with about 4.5 million passengers.

You will find the car rental desks at Cape Town International Airport in the Arrivals Hall of each terminal. Make sure you have your Nova Car Hire booking confirmation document with you and refer to it for the opening hours and location of your specific car hire provider.

If you are proceeding to Cape Town after picking up your Nova rental car at the airport, simply follow the airport exit signs and then take the "N2 Cape Town" route. After 3 kilometres, join the N2 double lane motorway in the direction of Cape Town and follow the "N2 City" signage left after passing the twin concrete cooling towers on the right hand side of the N2 motorway. Keep to the right where the highway divides, and continue on the right when it divides again. At the major intersection after the Cape Town International Convention Centre, take a right to enter the V&A Waterfront, and continue straight on to Cape Town.

Car Hire in Cape Town

Whatever age you are, you will never run out of things to do on South Africa’s Western Cape. Enjoy idyllic weather, awe-inspiring scenery, and a huge range of activities as you try to figure out a way of never having to leave!  Rent a car in Cape Town and drive less than 40km to Simon’s Town, a delightful cove of pillow-soft sand where a colony of endearing little African “jackass” penguins has taken up residence.

You will receive an unforgettable history lesson by taking the half-hour ferry ride from Cape Town to the former maximum-security prison Robben Island.  Now a UNESCO World Heritage site, Robben Island is the site of the prison where former president Nelson Mandela was jailed from 1962 to 1990, and former political prisoners now bring visitors on eye-opening tours. Take in Cape Town from the sky with a ride on the cable car up Table Mountain. This is undoubtedly the best way to see a landscape that is often featured on lists of the ultimate places to see.
