Information about the Cape Town Airport CPT

Cape Town International Airport is the second largest airport in South Africa and the third-largest airport on the continent. It was opened in 1954 and was last renovated and extended on the occasion of the 2010 Football World Cup. Cape Town Airport is identified by the IATA code "CPT". More than ten million passengers take off and land here every year. 24 airlines connect the airport to almost 100 destinations in Africa, Europe, America and Asia. However, some international flights are only offered during the high season between October and March. The CPT has two terminals: one for international and one for domestic flights. Both are connected by a central check-in area. The international terminal is located in the northern part of the airport building. At the airport, you will also find services such as restaurants, car hire and exchange offices.

What does winter have to offer in Cape Town?

If you are hoping for a white Christmas on your winter trip to Cape Town, you will find this at the beach at best. But Christmas in the warmth has its advantages as well. Enjoy the winter days under the warming sun and splash in the sea. This does not mean, however, that you have to do without Christmas completely. On the contrary: if you travel to Cape Town during the winter vacations, you can look forward to numerous Christmas markets and concerts. Here you can buy presents for your loved ones at home and soak up the sun again. Only one thing is missing in Cape Town in winter: mulled wine.

Refuelling your rental car at Cape Town Airport

If you have agreed to return your car with a full tank when you rent it, you can refuel your car at one of Cape Town's many filling stations. In the city area and along the highways you will find numerous possibilities. Many petrol stations only accept cash. That's why the offer of car rental sometimes includes a fuel card, which you can show at the petrol station. The total amount for refuelling will then be credited to you at the end of your stay. There is also a petrol station directly at the airport entrance. Please note, however, that there is no self-service at the gas station in South Africa. Instead, a tank attendant fills the car with the desired fuel. You must first name the amount for which you want to fill up or ask for a full tank.

In addition, adhere as closely as possible to other traffic regulations, such as compulsory seat belts, in order to avoid the strict penalties.
