Renting a Cell Phone in Cape Town

Jump to last reply

We are going to SA in Feb. for 2 weeks. Arriving in Cape Town where we stay for 4 nights then renting a car and staying near Simon's Town for 3 nites before we travel the garden route and on to a Safari Lodge near Port Elizabeth for the last week. How important do you think it is to take a cell phone with us? We are in our mid 50's and will not be driving at night and will most likely not stray to far from well travelled areas. I see that phones can be rented at the airport but we really would want one only while we have the car. This would be used for emergency use only . At this point we plan on renting our car from Avis in Sea Point then returning it to the airport when we leave. We really don't want to be bothered with a phone but will do so if important. Thanks to all
