Travel Forums Africa and The Middle East Rent a car in Cape Town

Can anyone help me find a good and cheap car rental company in Cape Town?
I need to rent a car for +/- 3 months and I searched the internet but there are so many companies.
Can anyone tell me what company is the best and cheapest and why?

Aroundabout Cars are the cheapest and best. They have no mileage restrictions and a good breakdown service. Any of the backpackers in Capetown will be able to arrange it for you when you arrive or you can go to them direct. Cant for life of me remember their address but it is off Long Street. Ask, someone will know.
Easy Peasy!

I have used Nova before in CT for monthly rentals and I found them to be the cheapest. Here is the link.

We used Around about cars too. They basically subcontract through the other more reputable agencies (ours was with National)

Had no problems with the car but argues with the guy on returning the car as he reckoned there was a chip in the window. Arguing worked as we got off with it :)

No problems with anything else.... good overall
