I am planning a visit to Western Cape in Sept last week / October 1st week this year along with my wife &12yr son. I intend to fly from Jo'burg to George and hire a car from George Airport for a 6 day Garden Route drive to Plettenberg, Knysna, Oudtshoon, Hermanus & then spend 3days in Cape Town. (3 nights in Hermanus)
I am looking forward to advice on
1. Whether I should prebook my rental car or is it better to hire a car on arrival at the airport - this is in terms of getting a good quality car / good pricing deal / choice if cars.
2. Also, are the cars / options available on direct booking?
3. What are best recommended car hire companies (I know there are lot of recommendations on the forum but mostly for european travellers prebooking from UK. Am travelling from India)
Am also open to any suggestions on the itinery. Thanks in advance.
