Dace Otto, Park Hills, Kentucky, USA
I did not only like the website and the good price, but especially the possibility of having personal contact, with well instructed hands-on team members that do what they say, was good to experience!
G. Louwerse, Franschhoek, South Africa
I stayed in South Africa for more than 5 months and rented at least a dozen cars, and I can honestly say that Cape Spirit was the easiest, most affordable, and most enjoyable company that I worked with.
Jake Curtis, Rogers, Arkansas, USA
Our short visit to South Africa could not have started and ended better. Extremely efficient and friendly employees got us on our way without hassles, and on returning the car, we experienced the same professional service. Your online booking and communications made this reservation a breeze. Thanks to all at Cape Spirit.
Nick Botha – Atlanta, Georgia USA
Our whole experience dealing with Cape Spirit and First Car Rental was amazing. Since we got off the plane, everything fell in place. We were escorted to the nearest First Car reception area, where our key was waiting to be picked up. Within 10 minutes of landing, we were in the car and on our way. The unlimited km’s plan was a bonus, since we were travelling from George to Cape Town. This meant we could see all the beauty our country has to offer, without worrying about the total km’s we were driving. Plus, we got +- 15km per liter. That made it so much easier for us, especially since we were driving almost everywhere. We saved so much petrol with the car, by getting the extra km’s per tank. This made our experience so much more enjoyable. Me and my better half got engaged on the plane toward George, and when we saw the car, we knew this vacation will only get better. When we got back at Cape Town Airport to return the car, we were helped within minutes. And within 2 days, our deposit was repaid, and we did’t have a single problem with our bill. Everything was just perfect. Thank you very much Cape Spirit
I enjoyed every minute with Europcar their service was excellent I don’t regret it at all. I’m looking forward to hire again.
Unati Mkumbuzi, Bellville, Cape Town
I found the approach on the net very friendly. It was quick at Cape Town airport to get the car and the same applies on the return of it. Personnel are pleasant and welcoming.
Anton Borras Cabaces, Johannesburg, South Africa
Living in Australia and not having any family or friends available to us in Cape Town made hiring a motor vehicle for our stay very difficult. I am a member of an online African aviation website and one of the adverts available was for Cape Spirit. Following this link I found an easy to use website with rates (which for an Australian were VERY reasonable!!) well laid out. I booked the motor vehicle many months before travelling and was not expected to pay anything up front. On arriving in Cape Town at 9 o’clock at night a short walk took me to the office where all my paperwork was waiting and within five minutes I was driving out of the airport in a clean, well presented vehicle. As I have some problems with my knee a normal sedan causes my knee to ache after only a short while behind the wheel so I tend to drive a larger vehicle. I was expecting a Nissan X-Trail and was pleasantly surprised to receive a Honda C-RV in the same category. The car was clean, full of fuel and an absolute dream to drive. Dropping the vehicle off at the airport we were met immediately and a rapid inspection allowed us to be on our way to the check in counter within a few minutes. At all times the service was courteous and friendly and I would recommend Cape Spirit to any person.
Alex Buchan, Perth, Western Australia
We decided to fly to Capetown, with a four year old and a 2 month old baby (must be a better option than driving). After the flight, waiting ages for our luggage and having to navigate the airport with two tired children, I was not in the mood for another long wait. We came to the First Select counter and was helped immediately, signed some forms, was escourted to our car and out of there in two shakes. Returning the car is ever easier, just park and hand over the keys! I will never drive to Cape Town again!! From booking on capespirit.com to receiving and returning the car, life could not be easier!!
Samantha Coetzee, Centurion
The service was outstanding. I contacted several agencies and found Cape Spirit the most accommodating and trustworthy of them all. And of course I found the best price!
Marinus Willemstijn, Pretoria, South Africa
The rental service was fine and efficient. The clerks of your company have been very professional.
Marco Stegher, Rome, Italy
My experience on my Cape Holiday in March 2010 was fantastic. From the moment I contacted them on www.capespirit.com it was not just the quick confirmation but the fact that the km. was unlimited already put me in a holiday mood. We arrived in Cape Town by train and since your office is walking distance from the station it didn’t take long to receive the keys for our car (Chevy Spark). As clean as a whistle and billed faultlessly and hassle free. Keep it up !! I will definitely make use of your services in future.
Corrie Raaths, Pretoria, South Africa
Fast efficient service on car pick up. Super service. I will be using them again
Andreas Muller, Brisbane, Australia
We were enchanted by the agreeable, professional and customer oriented attitude of all the personnel. Everything was as promised on the internet. We already brought in friends. We surely will come back.
Marc Van Keymeulen, Antwerp, Belgium
By booking via Cape Spirit we got a very good car rental rate for our 6 day visit to Cape Town. It was very easy to book online and I received confirmation immediately via email and sms. The car was in a good condition and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall it was a enjoyable experience! Thank you.
Wilna van der Kooy, Pretoria, South Africa
Hiring a car through Cape Spirit Car Rentals is always a joy, its convenient, I always do it on line, its affordable, the unlimited kilometre package is great for long trips. With lots of car rental companies working with Cape Spirit Car Rentals, there is lots of cars and car depots to choose from.
Thato T. Machola, Castle View, Germiston, South Africa
I had a very pleasant experience ONCE AGAIN, using Cape Spirit. The car was ready on on arrival, clean and I was on my way within minutes after arriving at the First Car Rental office. The staff was also very friendly and helpful.
Paul le Roux, Kempton Park, South Africa
Everything about my car rental with Cape Spirit turned out to be an experience which will bring me back to Cape Spirit again and again. I booked online and that was very easy, confirmation was almost immediate. When I arrived in Cape Town from London we were tired from the long flight and the fact that the service by Cape Spirit (First Car Rental) at the airport was quick and easy was simply amazing. Completing the paperwork went without a hitch and the car was ready for us. It was clean, drove well and we had not one problem throughout our hire period. Returning it was again quick and easy. I am one very satisfied customer.
Archie Frieslaar, London, UK
Cape Spirit is definitely one of my best souvenirs from South Africa. They are extremely serious and honest. I would recommend Cape Spirit to all my friends.
Constantin DRAGAN, Bucharest, Romania
I hereby wish to thank you for your excellent service when I rented a car from your Durban branch last week. The staff was friendly, the car in a perfect condition and I had nothing to complain about.

It was really a pleasure to rent a car from your company. From the online booking until I returned the vehicle.
Ivan Wesso Cape Town, South Africa
Me and My girlfriend were very pleased with the rental cars provided, they were clean and tidy and mechanically sound. We traveled throughout South Africa, from Pilgrims Rest up north down to Cape Town in the south and Kruger park in the east.
Robert Taylor, Christchurch, New Zealand
I have used CapeSpirit many times and will continue to do so.
Amien Ismail, Sandton, South Africa
As I book about 30 car rentals a year in South Africa Cape Spirit has become my chosen provider. The online booking is quick and clear and much superior to some of their multi- national rivals. Prices are very good especially as they include unlimited Kms and the option to have a zero excess and indeed, are cheaper than many competitors. Billing is very prompt and overall it is a very efficient service. My good experiences with Cape Spirit have prompted me to recommend them to any of my visitors or friends who need to hire a car when they come to Cape Town. Keep up the good work.
SUE KIDDLE, Cape Town, South Africa
My wife & I rented a car from you in June & we were met by friendly & efficient staff & were billed immediately on returning the car with no surprises!
John Dockrell, Ireland
The car was ready upon my arrival and the staff were friendly and efficient. It was also the best value rental available.
Amaresh Ranchod, Johannesburg, South Africa
Your service was spot on again. I extended my rental twice over the phone without a hitch. What I like is the fact that you do not have hidden costs.
Johannes A. Kruger, Jongensfontein Western Cape, South Africa
I had a fantastic experience with my recent car hire in South Africa. I arrived in Durban after traveling 27-odd hours from New Zealand. The car was ready & waiting & I had trouble-free motoring for the duration of my stay in South Africa. On returning to Durban airport I was running a bit late & the staff were very co-operative in getting the car checked etc.
Rob Mitchell, Waikanae, New Zealand
We booked our car over the internet. The confirmation was quick and efficient as was the service at J’burg Airport from the very friendly staff. We had our car for 29 days without any problems and we thought at a great price. We certainly would use Cape Spirit again.

It was a comfortable car which we had for 5 months with no trouble.The internet site is clear so booking was easy. I expect to book again this October for 6 months.
Chris and Jan Price, England
We have now hired a car through the Cape Spirit website on several occasions. On each occasion we have used First Car Rental and the booking has been instantly and accurately confirmed. Rates are the very best available (best kept secret !!) Vehicles have always been ready on arrival and spotless. Billing has always been accurate and in terms of the booking confirmation. Staff at all offices visited (Cape Town, Durban & George) are friendly and efficient. Keep up the superb customer service and great rates !!
Colin Smith, Sandton, Johannesburg
I love to give you some feedback after being in touch with you in preparing transport for this and future trips. What I like most is your great service attitude. You not only promised, but did! And that’s what I appreciated most on the car rental too. Not only promises, but; had unlimited km’s, had lowest risks, were flexible regarding rental periods and… that all while they were the best priced!! Thanks for your great service! You will definitely see us back!
Cor Snieder, Groningen, The Netherlands
Although I am no expert on a computer, I found that booking was exceptionally easy, even when I had to change booking dates. Staff at the Airport were very pleasant and helpful. The car was ready, clean and the tank full. I had a trip to East London via Graaf Reinet, a long way round, overall about 2000 km, trouble free and very pleasant.
Erwin Lehmann, George, Southern Cape
I booked a combi with you twice already and on both occasions had outstanding service from yourselves as well as the rental companies.

Cor Snieder – C-A-N Corelsa Aid-s Network, Groningen, The Netherlands
Your excellent website made online booking prior to departure very easy for a “techno phobic” Granny. After one of the longest, long haul flights that one can undertake, on arrival in Cape Town your service was super smooth with all booking paper work to hand and in order. No long frustrating wait and friendly helpful service from staff, who were even prepared to take an extra walk with me to help with luggage and show me the way to the car. Having checked the prices and offers of many, many car hire companies, what you have to offer is all round the very best. I have recommended your company to friends and family in South African and fellow travellers making the trip to South Africa. I will definitely be in touch again to make a booking for my next visit to South Africa.
Jenny Urbani, From Masterton, North Island, New Zealand
This was my best car hire experience ever – no delays or unpleasant surprises , top value vehicle, unlimited km’s at rock bottom prices. Highly recommended to my friends and family and will definitely use the again.
Mr F.Y Motala, Durban, South Africa
Our hire was dealt with very efficiently and quickly on arrival at Port Elizabeth Airport, and we had a small problem half way through our hire period and were given a replacement car immediately. All in all our experience was excellent and I would recommend your company to anyone, and should we be lucky enough to return to South Africa will not hesitate to use you again.
Mrs Margaret Alderson, Kendal, Cumbria, UK
I live in Toronto and still having a business in South Africa do visit quite often Being able to book my vehicle on the website and getting a quick response and confirmation is comforting when there is so much to plan and organise around a trip. Upon arrival (a long trip) I have always been welcomed in a friendly and efficient manner and provided with the car selected with little fuss or bother (what you want after being en route for 24 hours). I can only recommend Capespirit and will certainly be using them again in future.
Pieter van Niekerk, Oakville, Ontario, Canada
I rented a car last november for 2 weeks and i must say it was absolutely great. The sevice at Capetown Airport was verry good provided by verry friendly people. The car itself was great and helped to make an unforgettable trip trough your country. Thanks

Mr Frank Jacinto, LA LUCIA, South Africa
As promised, we just did a trip back to Cape Town and used First car rental again. Super service once again.
Andreas Mueller, Brisbane, Australia
We used Cape Spirit at the end of last year and were very pleased with all aspects of the car hire, especially: · Ease of booking via email and internet, · Prompt response to email queries, especially as we are located abroad, · Fact that payment was only on collection, · Ease of collection and return. · Very competitive rates. Due to our travels we had to go through the process 3 times in different centres, and had no issues at all. We would definitely recommend Cape Spirit to all travelers.
Sean Colloty, Gold Coast, Australia
I think Capespirit offers the best rates. When I booked a baby seat which wasn’t immediately reflected on my reservation email, a simple email to which Ian responded immediately ensured peace of mind for us that the baby seat will be available. Upon arriving at Lanseria, the car had two baby seats available in different sizes for us to choose from. Great service, thanks!
Anita Breed, Noordhoek, Cape Town, SA
I was impressed as always when I booked a car at First Car Rental in Pretoria Downtown and was assisted by Katlego. She is always professional and helpful and so informative as well. All the staff are also helpful and professional no time waiting, its quick and fast.

I really enjoyed hiring the car through cape spirit car rental. Its great because you hire online, receive confirmation invoice and have three car hire companies to choose from. Also great because you get unlimited kilometers. Have hired a car several times through cape spirit and had great experience.
Lebohang Pitso, Welkom, Free State Province, South Africa
My first visit to South Africa in March this year was greatly enhanced by the excellent service provided by your company. After reading everything I could to select a Car Hire company I chose Cape Spirit. The online process to reserve a car was so easy and, all the terms and conditions were clear and easy to understand. Cape Spirit were also the best value of all the companies I looked at and, the unlimited Km deal was super. I chose to collect my hire car via the office in Downtown Cape Town, the office was easy to find and the staff and car were ready for me. My car, which was spotless, was almost new, and was ready for collection as arranged, after completeing the necessary paperwork I was on my way quickly. The branch staff were first class. Throughout the two weeks that I used the car it performed perfectly and, on my return to the branch at the end of my tour, the proceedure to accept the returning car was equally speedy and efficient. The account was correct in every aspect and even the charge for the final top-up of fuel was spot on. With other companies I have frequently found this item to be a real problem with overcharging.. Not so with Cape Spirit I can say that this item, as with everything else was absolutely correct. Thank you Cape Spirit for your excellent service, I will have no hesitation in using your company again on my next trip and I have no hesitation in recommending you without reserve.
Philip Unsworth, Manchester, UK
Booking on-line was easy. Pick-up from Loop Street in Cape Town was smooth and efficient and the staff extremely helpful. Drop-off at Cape Town airport was quick and the staff cheerful and enthusiatic. The whole experience was smooth and stress-free. Highly recommend this company.
Michael Peirce, Bexhill, United Kingdom
Cape Spirit was recommended to me by a South African friend who books through you on trips back home. From start to finish the process of getting more detailed information to support our booking, the friendly and professional emails and the collection and return of the car was very straightforward, and I will definitely use your company again. 5*

Natalie Cleary, Sydney, Australia
We are five students from Seden who rented a very cute little car from you this summer. We went all over the south- and east coast with it, and it was always reliable! We came to love that little car! The reason we rented it from you in the first place, was definitly the price and the location. We also got the opportunity to return it in Stellenbosch instead of Capetown, wich suited us perfect. So keep up the good work, espesially the prices!
Jennie Hén, Stockholm, Sweden
It gives me pleasure to give you feedback as requested. Hiring a car from Cape Spirit Care Rentals was a joy. The bookings are made so easy on a user friendly internet site and the car and documentation was ready and waiting when I arrived at Cape Town International Airport. As I love the Cape and usually go their to de-stress from quite a stressful job, the unlimited kilometers are a bonus – I can travel to my heart’s delight and absorb the beauty of the Cape! Thank you for rendering an efficient, friendly and professional service!

Barbara Gunter, Empangeni, South Africa
I had a very positive experience dealing with Ian Gouws and managed to organise a quote effortlessly via e-mail. I managed to confirm my booking telephonically 2 or 3 times between the time I made the booking and up and till the time I went to fetch the vehicle and each time I had a positive experience. The collection and return of the vehicle also went down without a hitch and the consultants at the OR Tambo office were very helpful and kind. The unlimited km’s offer was definitely one of the reasons why we chose your service above many others because it worked out much cheaper! We were billed correctly and the moneys deposited, invoiced and returned agreed to all our invoices and slips. I would surely recommend Cape Spirit Eurocar to anyone.
Simon Tait, Johannesburg, South Africa
Experienced friendly & prompt service, which made the process comfortable and pleasant.
Jacki Salk, Pretoria, South Arica

I had a wonderful experience with Cape Spirit Car Rental, we’ve hired a car in PE and dropped it in Durban – Without a hidge! Everybody was very helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend you guys to all my friends.
WJ Matthee, Cape Town South Africa
Prior to us arriving in South Africa we decided we would need a vehicle to get around. We had various options; we could hire a vehicle or purchase one & give it to a nephew or niece who would need a car shortly. We decided to hire a vehicle as we did not want a situation to arise in South Africa where we were stuck on the side of the road without any assistance & without a car to undertake our holiday. The search then began to find a car to hire. After checking out numerous car hire companies we decided to go with Cape Spirit and the deal that they were able to offer which met all of our needs. I have to admit I was not sure what I would find when we arrived in South Africa but can say that my fears were all unfounded as we had a brilliant holiday in South Africa. We travelled about 8000km around South Africa and had absolutely no issues with the car we hired. We had brilliant service from our initial contact, throughout our holiday & after we had returned to New Zealand. I would definitely recommend & make use of the services again. Both my wife & I were very happy with the vehicle.
Creag McLaren, now living in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
It was wonderful family trip to Capetown with your rental car. I rented two days and visited wonderful and beautiful places like Cape Point, Cape of Good hope, Stellenbosch winelands, and so on. I am very sure that I will use again your rental car when I visit South Africa in near future.

This February we get our first impressions of South Africa, and all of these impressions were superb. Beginning with the perfect service of the car rental company (almost brand new car, unlimited mileage), quick service at the pick up and also at the end of the rental. A good surprise was the flexibility with gas-refilling at the end of the rental. We had not to search for the nearest gas-station around the airport, they refilled the tank with no surcharge (not like in America). We had good experience in South Africa, car rental and gasolin are reasonable priced. We plan to go back in the near future with the kids.
Zoltan Ronai, Keszü, Hungary
I will certainly use Cape Spirit Car Rentals again as they were efficient and got my request and rental correct first time!! They also offered the best deals and the National/First staff at the airport were very friendly and helpful.
Sue Kiddle, Hout Bay
My husband and I recently(in Feb) hired a car through Cape Spirit as we wanted to go to the Cape and do a bit of exploring along the West Coast.The unlimited KM offer was ideal for our needs. We flew to PE and picked up our ‘golf” at First Car Rental at the PE airport. We were very impressed with the service and were on the road within 20 min of landing.This was a bonus as we were spending our first night in Kenton on Sea and didn’t relish the idea of driving in the dark. It is the first time I have ever booked anything over the internet and I was pleasantly surprised at how efficiently the whole experience was handled. It saved alot of time and stress.Thank you Cape Spirit and First Car Rental and keep up the good service!
Lil Marshall, Durban, South Africa
2nd time I used your internet booking service and find it excellent. The product offering also very good.
AJ Delport, Cape Town
From the outset, our dealing with Cape Spirit was efficient, reliable, curtious and excellent value for money. Any email queries or requests were followed up and replied to immediately. We will and have already highly recommended Cape Spirit and First Car Rental. Both Ian Gouws, who we dealt with after making the online booking and Martie Klaassens, Branch Manageress at OR Tambo International Airport, made the start and completion of our holiday to the Kruger Park hassle free.
David and Gail Hertz, East London, South Africa
Service was excellent! This has been the case the last three times I rented through you! Keep it up!
Juan Benson, Johannesburg
The Team of Cape Spirit! I had a wonderful experience with Cape Spirit, the booking online and fast response added the much needed service and should be an example for all in the service industries.
Respectfully, Sharief Moodaley
My experience with Cape Spirit was wonderful, the booking process was easy and the staff at Cape Town Airport were very friendly and helpful, I will definitely use Cape Spirit for any future rentals and have already told friends and family about my experience.
Cezanne Wildman, Sandton City
My car booking with Cape Spirit was superb and I will use them again.
Aifheli Brian Netshivhodza
Ek wil net vir jou nogmaals baie dankie se vir al jou harde werk met die bussie. Die bussie het gery soos ‘n droom en ek het hom met ‘n swaar hart terug gegee want ek het lekker bederf geraak met die krag, spasie en gerief. Iewers in die toekoms sal ons weer met mekaar besigheid doen.
Dries Fourie, Vrystaat
Dear Cape Spirit Team, Thanks so much for the wonderful experience. Our dealings with you were very professional and you met our every request, everything from last minute alterations, to changing the drop off point. We experienced absolutely no problems and will definitely be booking through Cape Spirit again.
Jeandre Gerding, Johannesburg
I recently went and spent a weekend with my parents in the Eastern Cape. I flew to Durban from and hired a Cape Spirit car.The internet booking service impressed me from the word GO…I instantly received booking confirmation. I made a mistake in the booking process and ended up with a double booking. But before the end of that day i had an email from one of Cape Spirit consultants highliting this error, he then proceeded to correct it. What I liked most is that i was not required to give my credit card information on the internet nor over the phone, and that I only paid when I picked up the car. The car that i received had very low kilometers which assured me of the unlikelyhood to break down. I will certainly be hiring with Cape Spirit in the future.
Sekiwe Mbande, Cape Town
It was such a pleasure booking a car via you guys. I got exactly what I was looking for, esp the unlimited km! your website made it so easy and also offered loads of info regarding the specific car I was looking for. My experience at the First Car Rental counter was just as pleasant. When I arrived at the counter, an envelope with my name on was already waiting for me. It took me about 10minutes at the counter and i was ready to hop in to the car. I was really really impressed with the service at First Car Renatls. The car i received was a brand new Polo Classic Auto. What a pleasure to drive! My fiance and I had no hiccups with regards to our journey through to Knysna. Everything seemed to go just perfect! I am definitely going to use you guys again! Its soooo convenient!
Clyde Smith, Durban
Hi, I use your Upington Airport Branch quite regularly, always on very short notice. Ria Knowds is always very friendly and professional she will always try her best to accommodate me. I will Always make use of your Car rentals in the future.
Mr. Fernando Abrantes, Gordon’s Bay
Thank you for a great service, quick and easy and your choice of rental company First car rentals turned out to be excellent. The booking form is user friendly even for novice computer users you will remailn my first choice for booking. Keep up the good work
Fred Rascher, Pietermaritzburg
I have used Cape Spirit Car Rentals on many occasions over the past year. I Find the service reliable & prompt and will therefore ncontinue to use the service.
Mr Marcus Dawe, Cape Town
I did my booking online and was quite surprised by the voucher which reached me instantaneously. What surprised me more was that I did not have to pay up front. I appreciated the trust placed in me to reserve a car without even a deposit. On visiting your premises at Oliver Tambo International Airport I was greeted courteously and very friendly. The assistant was professional and effective. I have been overseas recently and forwarded your website address to a number of friends who will be visiting South Africa. On returning the car I was billed correctly and there were no hidden costs. You have got a client for life!!
Bertie Heckroodt, Beacon Bay, East London, South Africa
As a first timer with renting a car I found it easy and hassle free. I would definately recommend Capespirit.
Allyson James Hancock, Springs
I would like to thank Cape Spirit for making my trip so hassle free. The booking on-line was as easy as ABC and the staff were friendly and helpful over the phone. I would most definitely use Cape Spirit in future and recommend to other travellers.

In today`s world where good service is a rarity, Cape Spirit Car Rentals stands out as a beacon of excellence for others to try and emulate. Part of the pleasurable anticipation of a holiday and a break-away from the usual routines is that one will be dealing with Cape Spirit – that in itself is a joyful, pleasant and exciting experience. The people are knowledgeable – properly inducted in the tasks they have to perform to ensure customer satisfaction. They are clearly handpicked, erudite, friendly, cordial and precise communicators well trained to provide service of a exemplary standard to ensure that dealing with Cape Spirit will always be a memorable experience.
To this must be added that Cape Spirit:
– offers the lowest car rental rates by far of all the operators active in South Africa,
– instantly confirms telephonic and email bookings and one can rest assured that “What you booked is what you get” or sometimes even better,
– telephonic dealings are handled by efficient staff in a notably friendly way,
– the pleasurable anticipations associated with going on holiday turns to excitement the moment the car is started by the Cape Spirit sales assistant while explaining the operating routines of the car,
– the cars are immaculately neat and clean,. well maintained and perfectly tuned for best performance. One senses a feeling of confidence in the reliability of Cape Spirit cars with obvious justification,
– one can relax and enjoy the journey knowing that Cape Spirit cars are unquestionably reliable,
– Cape Spirit offices are spotlessly clean and neatly organised. The small comforts provided such as free coffee and tea as well as a range of free magazines and
route maps intensifies the impression that Cape Spirit really cares about the comfort of customers,
– we always arrive safely and relaxed at our holiday destinations. The impression conveyed by the well-kept neat Cape Spirit car enhances the eagerness with which we are received upon arrival at our destination,
– Cape Spirit staff have on occasion shown that they are only to willing too perform tasks beyond the formal call of their duties,
– we have never had reason to question the accuracy of billings by Cape Spirit for their services.
The conclusion is simply this: Cape Spirit sets the standard – a standard that others will find a difficult challenge to emulate.
Willem Roets, Cape Town
I was extremely happy with the ease that I was able to book my hire car on the internet. All options were clearly displayed and I had no problems make a choice and confirming my booking. When I arrived at OR Tambo airport and collected my car I was greeted in a friendly professional manner and informed that I had been upgraded at no extra cost. The car was clean and performed like new. Upon returning my car it could not have been easier. I drove into the designated parking and handed the keys to the rep that was waiting for us. He checked all compartments for any personal belongings and wished a pleasant journey. Well done on an excellent service interaction.
Aaron Howell, Durban
We were very pleased with the service and condition of the vehcile we hired.
Hugh Williams, Westville
I’ve experienced very good service with Cape Spirit. The staff at the CPT airport were very friendly, and were actually the first people i spoke to at Cape Town when i went on holiday. It kick started my vacation on a good note. My car was already inspected and waiting for me. Upon return of the car, everything was handled promptly and by the time i reached Durban, i had the invoice in my email inbox. I must compliment the staff at CPT town First Car Rental for their excellent service. I had no hassles with the booking system through Cape Spirit also. Everythin was convenient for me. I certainly will book with Cape Spirit again.
Dr. Logandran Naidoo, Durban, KZN, South Africa
I only make use of Capespirit, your service is great. Recently I forgot my ID book in the vehicles that I hired. Thank you very much to the lady in the East London office you are great, for returning my ID document.
Nigel Adams, East London
On searching the internet I found the offer by Cape Spirit to be highly acceptable due to the unlimited mileage stipulation and daily rental fee. The online booking service was simple and provided rapid feedback with instructions to the user in terms of reservation number, required documentation and procedures. The vehicle was ready and waiting in spite of an early morning pickup and the offices were open for my early morning drop off. The staff that received me were friendly and competent and ensured that I was quickly underway with minimal delay.
Mike Brink, Johannesburg
This was my first use of Cape Spirit Car Hire – the car was excellent, the service at Kruger airport efficient and the you provided the best value for money I have had experienced in South Africa. Well done!
K.O. Holness, Cape Town
Good morning, I have recently hired a car from you on ORT Int. airport. I have done the booking online and the service through you website, at the office and when I returned the car was truly awesome. It was one of the best rental experiences of my career. To the point, no fuss, car in excellent condition and billing correctly executed. Well done guys and keep it up.
Mr. J.C. Boshoff, Phalaborwa, South Africa
We had a warm welcome in a cold Cape Town and the assistance was friendly and helpful. The car was in excellent condition and a joy to drive with. Thanks for your excellent service and by far the best rates! We will definitely book with Cape Spirit Car Rentals again!
Wanda Swart, Pretoria
The service I recieved from the staff in Midrand was exceptional as the office even called me on Sunday to arrange for when the vehicle was going to returned later that day.
Natasha Miller, Glen Austin, Midrand, Gauteng, RSA
Thank you, Cape Spirit Car Rentals, for a wonderful experience in Cape Town recently. Your office staff was so helpful and assuring, and the car we’ve had was a real pleasure. Thanks once again. We had absolutely no hassles!!!
Lennie Poonan, Nelspruit
I picked up on your name in Google and was quite surprised that booking via the internet was actually substantially less costly than either phoning in or booking in person. The limitless km was a great saving when I travelled from Cape Town to Johannesburg via Mosselbay. In both cities I received fast and friendly service from a well trained staff. I appreciate the fast and clear billing that I received via the internet and have already recommended Capespirit to many of my friends and family..
Hennie Greeff, Sandton
No problems great service as always, really enjoyed the trip.
Jeandre Gerding, Randburg
Making use of Cape Spirit proved to be very easy, efficient and extremely good value for money.

Nantus Venter, Die Hoewes
My experience with Cape Spirits has always been refreshing . From the time i make the booking to the actual delivery of vehicle . Ian’s professionalism though stands out , He is prompt , friendly and provides you with the useful information which makes it such a pleasure to deal with Cape Spirits. I dont remember anytime when he gave a lower standard of service i mean each time i call get the same feedback. Keep it up.
Ms Nosipho Lawu, Pretoria, South Africa
We had a beautiful experience with Cape Spirit car rental, the car was in a good condition and we got it on time as planned, the staff was professional and helpful.
Lungie Zama, Pretoria
Having to attend block lectures on a monthly basis away from home is always stressing, so it helps when the car you book to drive you to and from your destination is reliable and in the event that anything happens to you, you can rely on friendly and efficient staff to sort things out quick and effortlessly. I have been using your services since last year June and have always been impressed with the staff at both Oliver Thambo International and the Cape Town branch. Thank you for a fabulous service.
Adré Bartis, Cape Town
This was the easiest way of hiring a car, no frills, no money/credit required beforehand. All this was done from the comfort of my home. On the day I arrived at JBH INT, went to First Car Hire and everything was done fast and efficient and within minutes I was ready to hit the road. On return it took me seconds to book the car back. Thanks for a speedy and efficient service.
Cedric Meiring, Belhar South Africa
I would like to confirm my satisfaction booking a car with unlimited kilometers through capespirit.com. Everything you promised realised, a new car, speedy internet reaction, price, friendly and supportive service as well as an user friendly booking system. My future car bookings will take place through capespirit.com!
Johnny Grobler, Woodhill Golf Estate, Pretoria
Your service is great! I only use your car rental company and also reccommend to all my friends. I will use your company always in future, friendly staff in East London , keep it up!
Nigel Adams, East London
The booking process very user friendly on website as well as call centre. The agent was happy to assist us in our special requests. Our car was ready, clean and what we required for our family holiday in the Drakensburg.
Claudia Chennells, Tokai, Cape Town, South Africa
Thank you for a top class service – hasslefree and friendly.
Thanks for excellent service.It was professional and prompt.The vehicle was in perfect condition and a pleasure to drive.
H Schoeman, Pretoria
My car rental experience was exceptionally good with Cape Spirit and First Car Rental. The prices are unbeatable and unlike other rental agencies, the booking and car was ready when I arrived at the agency. The staff was extremely efficient and getting the car took about 5 minutes. I will definitely make use of this wonderful service again.
Margaretha Mauer, Welgemoed
Thank you for making my car hiring experiences effortless and a pleasure.
Chamaine Kenmuir, Johannesburg
Just some feedback on our rental – it was really a nice and comfortable car. Car was nice and clean and the service at the airport was very good and even the follow up afterwards was very professional. We WILL definitely make use of Cape Spirit Car Rental in the future. I would really recommend this car rental to anyone.
Mrs S Victor, Worcester
This was the second time I booked with you, and I was highly surprised in both instances arriving at OR Tambo at 23:10, going to the car rental offices and finding staff there, knowing exactly what they must do, well trained, friendly and helpful. The vehicles were clean and for the price you pay, the best value for money you can find. The return process went just as smooth, and I will definitely be back for more bookings.
Jaco Duvenhage, Langebaan, Western Cape
My dear wife and I frequently and regularly use rental cars. I am an economist (permit me to say of some renown) and renting cars on your terms do make economic sense for us. We became aware of your services only recently and have since become almost addicted to making use of it – a holiday without a Cape Spirit car is not a holiday for us. We fly to our holiday destinations e.g. Kruger Park, and use one of your new late model neat and spotlessly clean cars with confidence for its reliability and comfort as well as the economic benefit thereof. Service wise you are in a premium league of your own while on the score of price everyone else is running in your dust!
Willem Roets, Durbanville, Cape Town
Cape Spirit – you live up to your name. My booking experience was refreshingly hassle free, speedy and extremely courteous. Added to this great service, your car rates are the best I have encoutered after years of car rental for business and pleasure. My vehicle was brand new and the car rental staff knowledgeable and efficient. Your mail responses were immediate and I appreciate your feedback request and the invoice e-mail service. I am a convert. Thank you.
Trish Holdengarde, HILTON, Kwa Zulu Natal
My experience with Cape Spirit Car Rentals was exceptional, from the word go….I found the advert on the internet which was very affordable, called the reservation number and got through to Ian who assisted me very efficiently. After booking the vehicle I received prompt notification thereof via email and to my mobile…very impressive!! At the Airport my vehicle was clean and ready for collection. I will definitely use your company again in future. Keep up the GREAT work.
Irshaad Cassim, Cape Town
I was very impressed with the service I received from First Car Rental. The most important thing for me was that there were no hidden costs. I knew the full extent of what it was going to cost me up front. On arrival at Durban airport all the documentation was ready and I was treated by a friendly, competent and efficient staff. The same was true on my returing the car. All in all it ws a very good experience. Thank you for gettng it right and doing it well.
Barry Wood, Cape Town
Your service was excellent, I will be using your company in future!
Nigel Adams, East London
Your Service is and was superb . I will recommend and use your services again at any time.
C. Peter Rudert, Villiersdorp
It is convenient for me to book on line and being able not to use my credit card online. I really like to thank you for making it possible for me to book on line. I have made bookings before and i will continue to do so
Bafana Tsotetsi, Cape Town
The booking process was easier than other companies, no hassles. Also like the fact that you only have to do one transaction. Used the car on a road trip with high school mates, traveling to our school’s 150th reunion. Car definitely added to the great weekend feel. I will definitely be making use of your services again.
Lusapho Njenge, Pretoria
Booking car with Cape Spirit has been an efficient, professional experience.
Gadushe Kondlo, Johannesburg
I really enjoyed my rental time with the Nissan Hard body and what a good price for this experience. The booking was also easy and to pick up the car and returning it was a smooth ride. Regards,
Erik Kempers, Humewood, South Africa
My experience with First Car Rental was exceedingly satisfactory. The original booking was made with National Alamo which changed ownership to First Car rental prior to my journey. An e-mail was rec’d timeously advising of the name change with no changes to the price or conditions of rental agreement and very good directions on where to find the offices at Cape Town Intl airport.
Malcolm Hatton, Witbank
The booking was hassle-free and quick. The condition of the car was excellent. Thanks a lot
Lazarus Ngcobo, Cape Town
This is just a couple of words to thank you for the excellent service your Church street branch gave me in Pretoria. My car went in for repairs so I checked on the internet for a rental, I found 1st car rental very easily and happened to chose them above the others. The booking procedure was very easy and convenient.I booked the night before and the car was ready for me by 9 am the next day. The staff at the Pretoria branch were very friendly and helpful on the 2 occasions that I booked cars.The cars were clean and in excellent condition for the price I paid. Thank you for the excellent service
Richard West, Pretoria
I would like to congratulate Cape Spirit for the good service they have, this start from the the web site where you get quick clear information for the quote. The car was cheap for my trip and it was an in good condition.
Zanele Mbotho, Durban
I had an amazing experience with your company. The whole process was so smooth, and so fast. Thank you so much for your professionalism!

Diana Fernandes, Tzaneen
Precise internet bookings, proficient staff and peace of mind rental.
Thokozani Tshabalala, Richards Bay, KZN
A good experience. Will use you again for sure.
Jeff Lanham, Cape Town
A friend actually told me about Cape Spirit just a few weeks ago. I found the web site very user friendly in that you only input very basic information and your car is reserved. I have found the staff very friendly in both the sites I have used (i.e. Durban International Airport and Braamfontein). With Cape Spirit I can go back into the website and request my final invoice – I normally have it within a few minutes via e-mail which is wonderful. You guys don’t hold exorbitant deposits so I can still use the rest of the credit available on the card. The billing structure is so simple that I know before I am billed exactly what I am in for. I’ve only just started using Cape Spirit and I think its going to be a long relationship.
Bonga Gambushe, Rosebank, Johannesburg
What a pleasant experience! Hassle-free, with great service apon arrival, and by booking online, was guaranteed to be in the rented car and on holiday within an hour of my plane landing.
Jax Havermahl, Johannesburg
My experience with Cape Spirit car Hire was fault free from the beginning to the end.! Booking on-line was quick and problem free, so was the pick-up and the drop-off of the vehicle ! I need to book another vehicle shortly and will definitely go this way again! Thanks for excellent service!
Gerald Govender, Durban
I had a nice journey, I did not experience any problems, I have recommended your company to many of my friends who are in business, all of them always come back with the positive response.
Sipho Zulu, Durban
It was an exceptional experience. The booking was done online and was simple and to the point. The staff that assisted us your Cape Town Airport office were helpful and the vehicle was neat and magnificent. We will always be using your company due to the pricing and the unlimited km’s offered.
Mr. Louis Moodley, Johannesburg
I had a wonderful experience with Cape Spirit.
Algetha Anthony, Big Bay Cape Town
The online booking was extremely efficient. The instructions were clear. The package on offer was excellent.
Dr Meredith and Mrs Beryl McLeod, Durban
Stress free, awesome and enjoyable experience will definitely refer friends and family to you for best rental service.
Mpho Makwela, Pretoria
It was a real pleasure to deal with you, especially because it was the first time I made a booking through the Internet.
Nokulunga Shabangu, Durban
A remarkable experience, from navigating your web page, to the warm welcome received from your staff to a clean, new vehicle. The greatest part of all was by far the super prices and unlimited km – makes a huge difference to a persons holiday experience. Thank you for a making our trip a pleasure.
Denise Taylor, Kelowna British Columbia, Canada
I have travelled a lot, mostly for passion in travelling, sometimes for work. I am a radiologist in Rome (Italy) ,and also a teacher in University. I never had a so good service in my past experience. Both booking (free of charge in advance) and service in travel were very satisfying. The cars that I have rented were new and in a good condition of maintenance. Definetively I plan to book again the same company in my next trip in Southafrica .
Giuseppe Potente, Roma, Italia
I would like to thank you and your staff for the excellent service, which we received when recently renting a car from the Cape Town International Airport. Normally choosing the regular big name rental firms, this was my first experience with First Car Rental. Arriving at close to midnight on the 14th December, after an exhausting flight from the Caribbean via Amsterdam, I was welcomed with a smile, quickly run through the paperwork and on the N2 in no time. I was also very pleased with the spotless, almost new (3000km), Nissan Tiida which was perfect for my family holiday needs. The drop off was very quick and efficient. The cost and billing was very fair. I flew 118 000km during 2009 (Caribbean, USA, Europe & SA) and had to come to Cape Town to experience the very best in car rental service. Well done and thank you!
Geoff Williams, Tortola, British Virgin Islands
I have recently had the pleasure of renting a car through you and have found the service to be exceptional.
Juan Benson, Cape Town
Thank you for a great service, as this was only the second time that i have hired a car for personal use. The experience was well worth it.
Riaan Bezuidenhout, Germiston
I was extremely impressed with my recent Cape Spirit/Alamo car hire in Cape Town. I hired a base model and dealt with two branches Airport and Greenpoint/City bowl. Staff at both were excellent and efficient and the vehicle hired was brand new with only 200 km on the clock! I will definitely make use of Cape Spirit for all future car rentals. Well done guys.
Wesley Smith, Johannesburg
I received good service from the branch down town in Durban.
Deidre De Ruiter, Durban
It was an excellent choice in car hire, your consultants dropping the car off and also when we handed the car back gave us five star treatment. The unlimited kilometer scenario was a smart idea and the vehicle we got was very economical, meeting all our needs Well done and keep it up, good service is hard to find these days. You have us as a client!
Copper Ludick, Pretoria
I have rented a car twice through Cape Spirit/National Alamo and the their online responses are always spontaneous and their website is user friendly. Both the Sandton and Pretoria branches have superb staff member…patient with customers and you get a first, top-class treatment. I was offered coffee at the Pretoria branch recently while awaiting my car. Your cars are very clean, reliable and still new. Both my journeys to Mpumalanga & Queenstown were pleasant, hassle-free and I am looking forward to renting your unlimited mileage cars again in the near future.
CJ Kau, Pretoria
Amazing experience, spontaneous online responses, dedicated & patient staff at offices… reliable cars for an enjoyable journey.
Chamane Josiah, Kwaggasrand, Pretoria West
We live in Durbanville and wanted to visit our children who live near Nelspruit in Mpumalanga. Because of a previous positive experience with Cape Spirit and National Alarmo, it was an obvious choice when we wanted to rent a car for the purposes of our visit. However, before doing the final booking, we compared prices with that of other rental companies and then was convinced that we should go forward. Right through all the phases – booking, reception at OR Tambo Airport, travelling to our destination, contact with the office at the Nelspruit Airport and back to OR Tambo, the quality of the vehicle – the service was excellent and a pure pleasure. Again, our experience with the company was very positive and we shall recommend this service to all out friends who rent cars from time to time.
GH and MC Schoeman, Durbanville, Cape Town
It was a wonderfull experience to book and drive one of National Alamo vehicles during our recent visit to Cape Town. Booking were done via internet with no hassles.
Hennie Pretorius, Sasolburg
What an experience, I always tell everyone to try Cape Spirit and those who have tried it, they don’t stop talking about your magnificent service.
Simphiwe Myaka, Pietermaritzburg
My car booking with Cape Spirit was superb and I’ii use them again.
I can only congratulate Alamo on the good service we received when we collected the car and delivered the car back to the airport. The service was excellent, I will definitely book a car again through Alamo. Thanks very much.
Lorinda Hendriks, Rivonia
Thank you for the excellent service from Cape Spirit and National Alamo!!! Booking through internet, conformation, reception at Cape Town Airport and the friendly and helpful personnel were outstanding. I will definitely recommend your company to my friends and other users. I will also use your company in future.
HP van Staden, Pretoria
The car that I used was in good condition and working order and i would not hesitate to recommend other people into booking a car with you.
Bilal Mohamed Sadeck Dhoda, Pietermaritzburg
My aim was to find an affordable car rental service for my planned trip. The hassle to obtain a quote via email or on their website, has caused frustration and anger. Until I discovered Cape Spirit – which was an easy to follow website and instantaneous quotes and information provided via email. Then I am not even talking about the fantastic deal I have received – the class and its price. Thanks to you, who has been a valuable contribution in making my holiday unforgettable.
Rudy van Buuren, Vanderbijlpark
I was happy with the fast and friendly service that was provided and the flexibility in hours that streched beyond normal office hours, I was able to pick up and return the car when it suited me.
Oliver Brettschneider, Somerset West
I was very happy with the deal you guys made on my car rental, much better than trying the rentals co’s directly. I arrived at the airport and all was in order with my reservation. I will be renting via you again. Thanks
Thomas Strick, Sandton
My experience using Cape Spirit was very pleasurable including the very quick and efficient service offered upon collection and delivery of car.
Roydon Parker, Brentwood Park
Dear Team I received friendly service at collection and delivery of the vehicle, paperwork was done quickly and efficiently, extra effort was made to have the car ready for collection outside normal trading hours.
Oliver Brettschneider, Somerset West
I found the service at Durban office, where I rented the car very friendly and helpful.
Arnfried Klein-Werner, Monte Vista
Die dame aan diens was baie professioneel, vriendelik en baie hulpvaardig. Alle dokumentasie is sonder enige vertraging afgehandel. Sy het my persoonlik tot by die voertuig geneem. Die voertuig was in BAIE goeie toestand, skoon en die tenk was vol brandstof. Die personeellid aan diens het by die motor gestaan totdat ek die parkeerterrein verlaat het. Ek kan u maatskappy met groot vrymoedigheid aanbeveel, en as ek sal in die toekoms weer van u maatskappy gebruikmaak.
Okkie Stander, George
When we arrived at your Cape Town airport depot to pick up our car, we found the service to be of a high standard- we were greeted with smiles and professionalism too. We were given lots of advice and a map to help us find our way around the Cape – this of course made our honeymoon even more pleasant! Our car was clean and ready and waiting for us on arrival and best of all very good value for money.
Russell and Lauren Getkate, Polokwane
My experience with National Alamo rental agency could only be put in one word “wow”. The staff was pleasant and very friendly, and most important very professional. The car was neat and they (staff) checked with us to make sure we were satisfied. We were more than satisfied, the prices are better than all the other quotations we looked at and there were no hidden cost!!! We were impressed enough to forward the website to our friends and business partners who always complain about the service from other rental companies. Best is the website it was an easy exercise to make my booking and the email confirmation came through just as fast and was accurate. It is simple to navigate and also assisted us in getting accommodation, absolutely brilliant.
Adré and Brent Bartis, Thornton, Cape Town
I was very impressed with the professional service my car hire was handled, the friendly car hire assistant, and the neat and well maintained car.
Lee-Anne Muller, Umkomaas
As a customer I really enjoyed the courtesy I got from Cape Spirit hence also I’m in Gauteng. I had been looking for a company that would give Unlimited Km as I usually hire a car for long distance trips. When I first made that call enquiring about the Unlimited Km, everything went so smooth and so quick. Within that day my booking and all the details were sorted out for me. I am taking another long trip soon and I can assure that I will be using the Cape Spirit services.
Simphiwe Shezi, Midrand, Gauteng
It was very straightforward – after shopping around I found that Cape Spirit offered the best deal. The car and paperwork were all ready upon my arrival at the rental agency so I was on my way very quickly. I returned it without needing to do anymore paperwork and was billed accurately according the rate quoted. Everything worked very well, I will definitely use Cape Spirit again.
Matthew Maury, Pretoria, Gauteng
The service we received was excellent. It just made our trip that much more enjoyable!

Next time I rent a car it will definitely be via Cape Spirit – National Alamo Car Rental. I had a smooth experience from the booking until the time I dropped off the car.
Zukeka Jacob, Durbanville, Cape Town
I hired a VW Kombi through Capespirit – from the booking to the picking up of the rental car everything was done professionally. I would recommend anyone to book anything let it be accommodation or renting a car through Capespirit.
Gift Hlahane, Melville Johannesburg
Cape Spirit Car Rental has quick service, vehicles are in good condition and the unlimited km is wonderful.
Maryke Dippenaar, Marble Hall
I have dealt with previous car rental companies before, but since using Cape Spirit I will never ever look back again, you guys are centuries ahead of the other companies.
Louis van Staden, Little Falls, Roodepoort
Your service was excellent and fast – I would recommend anyone to use your service – in fact I already told a friend about your car hire. I really liked your unlimited km package, and the car was very good and clean – in fact I nearly thought I was the first one to drive it due to the low mileage. I’ll be using your service again in the next time. Thank you keep up the good work.
Cerci January, Saldanha
We are impressed with the way you handled the booking .Thanks for the very nice clean vehicle. Because of the lovely vehicle we did the extra kilometers. Thanks again for a wonderful service.
Elbie Prinsloo & Johan Barnard, Pretoria
I was getting married on Saturday 9th Dec 2006, I booked online Friday at about 3pm. To my amazement the cars were ready for pick up at 6pm. I think your service is excellent, and your prices are the best. I will recommend you without prejudice.
Terrance Ikalafeng Mabalane, Johannesburg
Hiring a car through your website was so easy. National Alamo was great value for money, their package was the most affordable and with unlimited kilometers and excellent insurance and road side assistance included, we couldn’t have asked for more. You guys are the best, keep up the great work!

The on-line booking process as a pleasure. This was the first time we used you, and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the vehicle we received. Collecting and returning the vehicle was also incredibly easy – everything was ready and we did not have to hang around waiting for paperwork to be generated.

Ronel Joubert, Middelburg Mpumalanga
My experience with your car was excellent. I made a telephone booking and the response was the best. Quick with all the details. Your staff at Pretoria Church street made me feel so much at home. As for the unlimited kilos, they came in very handy as I am a field technician. Not forgetting the reasonable rates. Thanx for the excellent service. I have already recommended you to my friends and I look forward to booking with you again.
Abel Lesiba Kganyago, Pretoria
Our experience using Cape Spirit and National Alamo has been a pleasant one.

Zuki Kama, Gugulethu, Cape Town
From all the car hire companies I must say for the price that I pay at I got more than I bargained for. I love you guys and keep it up!!!

Ms P Masakane, Braamfontein
The experience using Cape Spirit & National/Alamo has been an absolute pleasure on both occasions – I recommend your services all the time. I have used other Rental companies in the past and I must admit – you guys offer the best deal by far. I will never use anybody else.
Shazia Rajah, Johannesburg – South Africa
Dit was die eerste keer dat ik van julle dienste gebruik gemaak het, en wil ek jou meedeel dat dit nog die beste diens was in terme van waarde vir geld, hulpvaardigheid en ondersteuningsdiens. Sou die geleentheid voordoen dat ek weer ‘n voertuig moet huur, sal ek beslis van julle gebruik maak. Verder sal ek aanbevelings doen aan ander wat ‘n voertuig wil huur, met die grootste plesier. Nogmaals dankie vir julle ondersteuning. Vriendelike groet
Paul Bijvoet (Nasionale Gids)
We would like to thank Cape Spirit for the wonderful service offered during the past weekend. We truly received much more than we bargained. Please pass a BIG THANK YOU to your awesome staff. I had no idea that hiring a car was so easy, it just made our trip so much better. Thank you and all the best.
Cynthia Naick, Durban
I called to make a booking and spoke to a very helpful gentleman called Ian, he then assisted me with details of the car that I was going to hire. On arriving to pick up the car I received good services from the guys at Durban international airport as well as returning the car. The service I received from this Company was excellent. I have and will continue spreading the word to my family and friends and indeed I will hire again. Good work and keep up your standards
Deidre Ullbricht, Durban
A one liner can tell it all, from the day I phoned for a booking, confirmation, the hospitality at the PMB office (Airport), and co-operation by Sonwabo was unbelievable! I got the vehicle in good condition, and all conditions and the package itself was clearly explained and finally a journey with piece of mind… The one liner: U ROCK!!!! Definitely will recommend to anyone. Thank u once again guys.
Siyabonga Nyamende, Kokstad
Unlimited kilometers gave me the opportunity to enjoy my holiday (no hazel to do kilometers calculations every end of the day). The price that you quote was the price that I paid. No hidden costs. The car excellent! The service excellent.
Johan du Plessis, Nelspruit
THE online booking process was a pleasure.This was my first time I hire a car and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the vehicle we received, specially on my request to accommodate 6 adults and the FIAT MULTIPLA was the ultimate stunning vehicle and the whole family enjoy the trip in Cape Town with the funny little car. I returned it without needing to do anymore paperwork and was billed accurately according the rate quoted. Keep up the good service,and once again I will recommend my friends Cape Spirit and this stunning FIAT MULTIPLA.This is my next family vehicle.
Rassie Erasmus, Witbank
What a smooth experience!! It was the first time ever renting a car, and the service was excellent. Not only was it the most affordable package, the unlimited km’s was also a great added bonus. Being in contact via e-mail made all the arrangements easy and effortless. All the information needed was incluced in the emails. Pick up and drop off at OR Tambo was also smooth and efficient. Very fast. We really loved it. Thank you, Cape Spirit !
Dulaine Jaarsma, Cape Town
Renting through you has been an amazing experience.
Miss NC Duma, Durban
I’ve been using Cape Spirit – National Alamo car rental services since March 2007, and my experience has been nothing short of pleasurable. And of course not mention the speedy service whenever I collect a car…I’d say on average, it takes me less than 5min for the whole process… I always recommended your services to all my friends.
Seth Galetuke, Fourways
Hiring a car from Cape Spirit – National Alamo was a wonderful experience. I expected a lot of hassles as I was hiring a car for the first time; to my surprise there were none. National Alamo is a professional company indeed. The manner in which my online booking was handled is excellent. When I arrived at their offices at the OR Tambo Airport I expected to spend about an hour, but I to my surprise, everything was processed speedily and I was driving the car in less than fifteen minutes. The car was clean and in a very good condition. I kept the car for 8 days but the amount I paid was very reasonable. The unlimited KM option is simply the best. I am a National Alamo client for life!
Lazarus Ngcobo, Cape Town
Dear Cape spirit, It has been a very nice experience to rent a vehicle with you people. I experienced the best ever service from day one when I made a booking over the net. I phoned to confirm my booking and the consultant was very helpful. Lastly when I picked up the vehicle the gentleman who assisted me was very helpful. I am looking forward to rent a vehicle with you people.
Thabiso Maratsane, Cape Town
It’s been a great experiment to be part of your family as you treat and make the client feel at home when we use your user friendly net and also to chart to your client friendly consultants, may you continue with such a powerful service in order to remain as a leader in the industry.
MP MBASELA, Durban
I was very impressed with both the vehicle with which Cape Spirit provided me as well as their level of customer service. I would definitely rent a car with them again!
Michael Ross, Washington, D.C., United States
I recently rented a car from Capespirit for my visit to Cape Town.I must say that I was very pleased with the efficiency of your staff and the quality of the car. Upon arrival at Cape Town airport I found the staff friendly and happy with my car ready and waiting, despite the fact that I had entered the wrong pick up time on my email request. Upon drop off of the car in downtown Cape Town a member of staff was pleased to drive me across town to my next appointment. A value for money vehicle and quality friendly service, I could not ask for more.
Dr Roger A Firman, East Sussex, UK
We hired a car through your web site for our South-African trip. Our e-mail contacts with you personally and your company, were excellent.
Craig Ariav, Israel
Easy on-line booking and reservation procedure which made it clear what to expect. Friendly helpful staff on arrival at Cape Town who went out of their way to make us feel at ease. In comparison to other offers it was competitively priced. Check out and check in process was easy and painless.
Wayne Thomas, Overijse, Belgium
The car was close to new, we could prolong the contract via the internet and very easily change the drop-off location twice. This enabled a very flexible way of travelling and I would certainly hire from you again!
Inge Delfosse, Brussels, Belgium
I surfed on line for prices and got the best week’s car hire deal from Ian Gouws at Cape Spirit. I have no hesitation in recommending car hire through Cape Spirit, The online car booking worked perfectly, the staff at the car hire company were great, the collection and return faultless and, best of all, the bill at the end exactly what I was expecting. Cape Spirit’s website is an amazing source of information for South Africa and Cape Province in particular. I would say your website is the only one anyone needs to look at for ideas and suggestions of where to go and what to look at in Cape Town and the surrounding areas.Ian went out of his way to contact by phone a tour company for me when I could not get a reply to emails to them, brilliant service indeed. Highly recommended.
Alistair Barclay, Bristol, England, UK
My first visit to RSA was the best holiday I have ever had. Your hire cars enabled me to do over 4000kms around Capetown, Garden Route, Durban and St Lucia, Port Elizabeth, Rustenberg, Nelspruit and Kruger. The most stunning scenery, ( I took over 2000 photos and videos) , wonderful interaction with the Sth African people in all areas and all walks of life. My final 3 days at Kruger took me back to 5yo at the Zoo for real wonderment and excitement. Thanks for great memories I will treasure forever.
Peter Hawkins, St Mascot, Australia
I found the experience of renting a car through Cape Spirit to be hassle free and efficient. Booking the car on the internet was straight forward as was picking up and returning the car with no hidden costs added on.
David SULLIVAN, Port Macquarie, Australia
I had to change my original booking at the last minute, but First Car Rental at the airport were able to facilitate my needs without any fuss.
Jon Cheung, Sydney, Australia
Thanks once again for always responding so quickly to any queries we may have. We remain amazed at how quick and effortless it is to collect a car from your pick up points, no matter the hour. This year was no exception. You truly remain the best value for money. Here is a high five from the Greeff’s!
Hennie Greeff, Doha, Qatar
Good and friendly service , web bookings were easy and best value for money.
Ockert Steyn, Manama, Bahrain, Middle East
As a South African living in Dubai, it is the most wonderful experience when the car keeper escorts me to my car. During this time, we have fun conversation with him. Lovely and friendly guys.
Sarel du Plessis, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
It was wonderful renting from Cape Spirit and First Car Rental. The website is very user friendly. All the necessary information could be found and the booking could be done by the click of a button. The rates given was very good and no payment was necessary to reserve a car. We had unlimited km offered as well as NIL excess payment on insurance claims. We’ve asked for a car with the largest boot space in the category and when we got to the airport, I’ve noticed that a huge note was made on the paper work. So we got exactly what we asked for. Our car was ready for us on arrival and the process in the office went smoothly and quickly. Also at the return, we did not have to go to the office again. The car was dropped and checked within a few minutes! Within a week after we returned the car, we got a notice from the bank regarding the money that was taken off my account towards First Car and the amount was exactly what we’ve expected it to be. We are very satisfied with Cape Spirit and First Car Rental and will definitely contact them again when visiting South Africa again!!
Romien Benson, United Arab Emirates
The online booking was a breeze and my booking was confirmed in no time. The unlimited KM offers was exactly what I was looking for my family holiday. I will definitely use Cape Spirit again for my next holiday.
Barend Vermeulen, Kingdom of Bahrain
It was clearly the best offer on the net. No hidden fees. Booking was easy and we got a clean reliable car. Pick-up and return was quick and efficent. We will be back in January…..
Georg Bachmaier, Baierbrunn, Germany
I having booked on lie was away from jhbg int in 20 mins. Very impressed with staff attitude and service. I have told all south africans going on leave to use your service and how impressed i was. I am sure you will be getting some rentals fom saudi.
Brian Shield, al Khobar, Saudi Arabia
Thank you for the prompt and EXCELLENT service we received, from the time we were collected from the harbour and even with returning the car at the airport. Your staff were friendly and helpful right through the process, looking forward to renting from you again when we go to SA in the future
Horst & Monica Simon, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Great Customer Service, and really great value for money. Cars are clean and well maintained! Will definitely use your service again.
Wynand Oosthuizen, Balikpapan, Indonesia
A great car at a great price from great people! We love Cape Spirit!
Tom Otto, Park Hills, Kentucky, USA
The online booking was extremely efficient. The instructions were clear, is the second time we have hired through Cape Spirit, We have found them to be efficient and courtesy, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to all our friends.
Juan Carlos Ritrovato, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Our experience with Cape spirit is highly recommend. Everything was cheap and easy. We were on holidays and first of all we want no problems, and obviously the best for our money. Cape spirit was both. Starting with the booking, we compare different prices, and with fully insurance was the cheapest. also very effectively We did some last minute changes, and they react very fast. when we arrive there everything was ready, was fast and people was very very nice (in fact they even help us with our touristic doubts). We don’t waste time or money. For the return we don’t have time to fulfill the tank, and the charge they made to us was fair, not like other companies that made you an enormous charge… Nice, cheap, easy, no problems, no long queue…. Cape spirit is the best way for saving your money and time and with a good quality service.
Carolina Garófano, Madrid, Spain
The feed back I can give you is the best possible. The car I rented was availabe upon my arrival to Cape Town at the airport, and the office is well organized and could process the delivery of the vehicle without delay, which is very important after a 12 hours trip.
Ailton Silveira, Vinhedo, Brazil
A very straightforward and easy to book car rental online. The rental itself was inexpensive and I was amazed how relatively little extra it cost to leave the car in Port Elizabeth when we had picked it up in Capetown.
Hugh Bacon, UK
Very efficient service. Helpful staff at pick-up point. Good comfortable car to drive. Paperwork all correct. Would certainly recommend and use again in the future.
Michael Peirce, Bexhill-on-Sea, UK
We hired a car for our 2 week stay in South Africa in April 2009 through Capespirit. The process on Internet was easy and swift. The people in Capetown (arrival) and in Port Elizabeth (departure) were nice and very efficient. We had a very good car for a very good price and are certainly willing to use again Capespirit on our next trip.
Didier Neuvecelle, Geneva, Switzerland
I was really surprised to be met with such courtesy and hospitality in a South African office of any organisation. Even tea was included. Your ladies were exceptionally pleasant and friendly, and gave the impression that they had plenty of time for every customer despite being so busy. I witnessed a German visitor to South Africa change his booking then and there from a competitor, because he was so impressed with his treatment when he only came into the office to ask for directions. And your vehicle was immaculate. I will certainly come back to you – and the billing was correct.
David Fisher, Lusaka, Zambia
The whole experience was good. We choose to have our car delivered to our hotel in Cape Town. The guy was prompt, professional and helpful. This cost us 140 ZA which was good value. The car was well presented. Drop off was easy too at Port Elizabeth airport. Again the guy we dealt with was good. Our bill was what we expected…so we’re happy! Good service, competitive pricing.
Chris Rolle, Durham, England
We booked our car rental via e-mail and received prompt and friendly reaction. Although we changed our minds quite a few times, the response was always friendly and accommodating. The booking, pick-up and drop-off were all done smoothly and professionally.
Shane Pollock, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
I was really pleased with the service, let me provide feedback:
We have booked a car for our 2 weeks holiday in South Africa on the internet through Capespirit/First Car Rental. We were happy about unlimited KM, no advance payment at time of booking and well competitive rate. We received via e-mail voucher and confirmation with thorough detailed information what is necessary and how to proceed with pick-up. Upon our arrival to Cape Town, there was a Car Rental desk in the arrival hall, we were expected, the car was ready, everything went really smoothly, the staff was really helpfull and within a couple of minutes we were sitting in our car. We traveled over 3 thousands km throughout Eastern and Western Cape and all the time, we could rely on our car, in fact, it was brand new. At time of return, we arrived at the airport a bit latter then we had planned and again we were pleased with how fast the return was processed, in 2 minutes the car was checked and we signed the return slip. I have to thank Capespirit/First Car Rental for their excelent service, this was probably my best ever experience with car rental, I can recommend them as first option.
Stanislav Samek, Prague, Czech Republic
Hi Cape Spirit,
We found that hiring a car through Cape Spirit was hassle free from the original on line booking, to taking delivery of the car which was ready for us and dropping the car off at the end of our visit. The sales consultant was friendly and efficient, and there were no nasty surprises when the billing was done. Our son is at UCT in Cape Town, and we will certainly make use of your services on our next visit to him.
Regards, Gayle Bell, Gaborone, Botswana
My Visit to South Africa was very pleasurable, the start point was the vehicle pickup, which was an easy, hassle free, and extremely pleasant experience. Found the staff to be extremely helpful and extremely willing to assist you, this gave me me a very comfortable feeling. I certainly have recommended friends and family to use the company ,because of its service and most competitive pricing.
Sunil Parbhoo, Dubai, UAE
The on-line booking was easy and well explained. On arrival in S.A the staff at the airport were friendly and efficient explaining the procedure. A short tour of the car was given before handing over the keys. On returning the car again the staff were friendly.
David Coates, Tyne & Wear, UK
I was really satisfied with services of Capespirit. Ordering was really working not like other similar companies and car was prepared as expected. Thank to Capespirit was our traveling around South Africa without any troubles with transport.
Petr Holecek, Prague, Czech Republic
I am hiring a car for many years from your firm and I am completely satisfied from your services and good cars.
Alexander Gavalakis, Vari, Greece
Our car rental experience through Cape Spirit was really fabulous. Ian was friendly and helpful at all times and had first class customer service, they really went the extra mile to ensure we were fully informed and had a good trip. The rental car companies they recommended also provided a good service at a fair price. We will use Cape Spirit again and highly recommend it.
Terrie Anderson, Leopoldsburg Belgium
We collected and returned the car at Johannesburg Airport for a four day trip to Kruger. The car was in perfect condition complete with a full tank of petrol, which successfully got us to Kruger, and fully comprehensive insurance. On our return we did not need to worry about refilling the car before returning it, which was a huge relief as we were in unfamiliar territory. The car was priced very reasonably, with no hidden extras, and staff were very efficient and friendly. We will definitely look out for Cape Spirit on future trips.
Emma O’Neill, Dublin, Ireland
Had a great time in SA with a 4 week rental from Cape Spirit. Easy to book online and friendly customer service via the live chat option. Great company to deal with. Have all ready booked with them again.
Lennard Skead, Brandon, Manitoba, Canada
We hired cars in both Johannesburg and Cape Town. Your service was very good, Unlimited Km appreciated, billing efficient and correct, the cars clean and in good mechanical order. Have had cars in both SA and Europe (from other companies) which have failed and had to be returned and changed. I would definitely use your company again.
Joseph Shatz, Sydney, Australia
Your online booking system is very easy to handle, the mail-contact with the confirmation was correct and friendly. The handover at the office Nelspruit KMI Airport was good and fast. We had the car for 14 days and we travelled to the waterberg region, to the Marakele NP, to the Mapungubwe NP as well to the Soutpans mountains without any problems with the car. The next time I will book again with you.
Apker, Hans-Jürgen, Kirchheim/Teck, Germany
My experience of hiring a car with Cape Spirit was first rate, it was completely professional and would definitely use the service again.
Tim Cockcroft, London, United Kingdom
The staff were exceptionally helpful and obliging. The flexibility of the unlimited km offers was exceptional.
Jon Cheung, West Ryde, Sydney, Australia
We made our booking whilst in Canada. We wanted a vehicle that was both comfortable and affordable. We discovered Cape Spirit online and were impressed at what they offered and the ease of making the booking. Also, not being charged any fees until we picked up the vehicle (we eventually chose the Mercedes Benz C200K) and the fact that we could use a Candian credit card, helped secure our choise of rental company. Our choise of vehicle was by far the most inexpensive one compared to what other rental companies offered for the same vehicle with the unlimited km’s and extended warrenty. We initially booked the vehicle for 5 days and decided that we need it longer. The sales team were very approachable and friendly and extended our booking for an extra 5 days. Picking up and returning the vehicle were very easy, no long waiting. I would and have recommended Cape Spirit to friends travelling to South Africa.
Schalk van Breda, Swift Current, Canada
Thank you for a great car rental experience! Booking through internet was easy. Your staff were friendly and efficient. The car was nearly new and gave us no trouble at all. In fact, I was a bit sad to hand it back!
Gert Koning, Swifterbant, the Netherlands
We rented a Toyota Corolla through Cape Spirit for the whole month of december 2008. We drove almost 4000 km. It was a wonderful car, for a more than wonderful price! We were very satisfied. The service when we got the car and when we returned it was excellent! Our compliments to the garagemen and the ladies at te desks! They were all so kind! When we visit South Africa again we will surely come back to you!
Frans en Marga van Nooijen, Zuidlaren, The Netherlands
I rented a car from Cape Spirit in December 2008 (03rd December – 31st December). Apart from really being the most affordable, what I liked was that I could book the car in June of 2008 for a December rental! and the price did not increase. The service at the rental counter at Cape Town international was quick, professional and friendly.
Mogamat Shafeek, Kamalie, Brunei
I was so impressed with my experience with First Car Rental in January 2009 I have booked another hire car for September 2009 when I return for another holiday. It was so easy to book on-line from Australia. I was definitely drawn to the excellent rate and unlimited kilometres, the consultants were so helpful and friendly. I had a no worry car hire. What you are quoted is what you pay for there are no hidden costs.
Merilyn Kolarik, Canberra, Australia
We arrived in SA after a very long trip from Manila. The online booking had so far been very efficient. When we collect our car, the service was very good. Everything ready as promised! The service was so good, I extended the rental for a longer. I picked the car up at OR Tambo airport and returned the car in Pretoria, this was no problem and was easily sorted out. The paperwork was effortless, billing correct and on time. Well done, will be using your services again.
Dino Christodoulou, Davao City, Philippines
We hired a minibus for a week to take two families on holiday in Arniston and had a whale of a time. The service was good, the vehicle gave us no problems and was new and clean, the web site was user friendly as were the staff when we collected the car or made changes to the collection and delivery points for the vehicle. All in all we were happy with Capespirit – a perfect car rental experience.
Bronwen Diemont, Italy, Rome
I made the reservation through Internet (from Italy) and I was really delighted about the appealing price compared with the level of services offered (full insurance, unlimited mileage, car age, ect.). Once arrived at the airport, the service at the desk was also excellent and quick, the employees very kind and professional. I would recommend this car rental company to my friends visiting South Africa in the next future. Keep up the good work!
Alberto Sinibaldi, Roma, Italy
I was impressed by both your online booking and sales consultants. The car was in excellent condition. Like they say first impressions counts so I don’t have a reason to try other car rentals. All my future visits I will be driving Cape Spirit Cars and I will spread the word about your excellent service with affordable prices.
Mrs Gaseone Zelda Kraai, Gaborone, Botswana
Good value for money. Keep it up. We are planning to travel again next week and will hire a car from you again.
Bharat L Shah, Kenya
I’ve had a good experience with First Car Rental. The car was clean and not expensive. I recommand them for anyone who want to have a nice trip throughout South Africa.
BAGNY Leïla, Reunion Island
The service was asked on line with several weeks in advance, the price has been agreed to the proforma invoice. When we got for the car everything was ready, we wait only few minutes for preparing the car. Unbelible and reliable good service. I hope to return to Africa again, I will rent a car with Cape Spirit.com
Octavio Urbina, Santiago, Chile
To summarize my experience with the service that your company provided, I can just say: ” I definitely will make use of Cape Spirit’s services whenever I will visit South Africa again.” Your internet service as well as personal attendance, was really professional and of a very high standard and your feedback/reply on my requests and concerns via e-mail, was excellent. I can only give positive feedback! It was a great deal!
Dirk Van Der Merwe, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
When making the online booking I was absolutely impressed with your rates compared to previous companies I had rented from.The car that I collected was not what I had booked but after driving the Honda Accord,I had no regrets with this being the replacement.You obviously are confident about your fleet and I am very grateful for the excellent service.Keep it up.
Robin Maarman, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
I had a first class experience when I flew to Johannesburg beginning of July. Upon arrival the staff was friendly and the vehicle that I reserved online two months prior to my arrival was immediately available. After an 8 hour flight I was exhausted but thank to Cape Spirit it took me not more than 5 minutes to get my vehicle! Many thanks! Keep it up!
Stefan Du Preez, Baghdad
When we went to Johannesburg on holidays we booked our rental car online – through the Cape Spirit website: www.capespirit.com. Booking through the website was quick, easy and painless. We had a couple of questions which we needed clarified so we emailed our queries in, and within 24 hours we received a reply – I was pretty impressed. We chose Cape Spirit because they offered the best value for money in terms of km (unlimited) and coverage (comprehensive).
Lynn Mollison, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
On arrival in a very wet Capetown, early the morning we were received very friendly, documentation at a ready, and the person escorting us to the vehicle was very patient since we still had internet connection arrangements to do, while it was still raining he was ready with his umbrella to inspect the car, the car was in clean excellent condition. Many thanks to your personnel at your Cape town office.
Hendrik Kruger, Dukhan, Qatar
I work outside SA and have done for 6 years although I am a resident and return about 5 times per year on rotational leave. When I knew I was returning to SA in September I needed vehicles to hire and saw your advert on News24 website and booked on the Internet accordingly. I hired in JHB, then CT then back in JHB, three different rentals. I found the service very good, efficient and the condition of the vehicle good and clean. I had reason to change two of the rental pick up and return dates as I shortened my stay in CT and the change was carried out efficiently and with no fuss at all. I have received my three statements via e-mail and all are correct. Thank you for your service and I will definitely use Cape Spirit First car rental on my return to SA.
Gordon Marshall, Indonesia
I couldn’t believe how simple it was to make the reservation as well as the no hassle pick up and drop off from Alamo. I would easily choose Cape Spirit again.

It’s easy to find a car with you and the welcome was at the top. Next time I’ll book with you because every thing was allright. Sorry for my very bad english.
Patrick ARNOULD, Reunion Island
I must say that I was very impressed with Cape Spirit. My travel arrangements often change at the last minute and I was able, every time, to simply click on a link in the email confirmation that I’d received, make the changes on-line any time of night or day, and even when the change was made one day before, the vehicle I needed was available the next day. The rates were always very competitive and the unlimited kilometres did it for me every time! I’m a budget conscious traveller and I hat having to consider carefully whether or not I have enough km’s left to make a quick detour when there is a place I want to see.
