Rent a van and get the crowd there

There are those occasions when you have a crowd and you have somewhere to go and the thought of taking multiple cars is just not practical. There is a great solution however, hire a van! For the month of February Hertz Rent a Car is making this even easier for you with their special rate of R999 per day in Gauteng, the Western Cape and Eastern Cape.

There is so much happening in our cities that the versatility and convenience of an 8-seater kombi or a similarly sized vehicle, can most definitely come in handy. Not only does moving a crowd together make economic sense but it is way more fun travelling in a group than on your own. Be it business or pleasure it just makes sense.

Looking at what is happening around the country there are many great events and opportunities to rent a van. With Cape Town currently hosting the Mining Indaba, expecting in excess of 6000 delegates, we all know that the traffic in the city will be even more crazy for the next few days. As a business, it makes sense to ensure that your delegates all get to where they need to be, together and on time.

In terms of leisure options, where do we start? There are events for groups of friends, families and sporting teams and you can’t be going to them alone.

Hobie Beach, in Nelson Mandela Bay, is host to Africa’s largest family beach event on alternate Sundays. There are seven events that run concurrently; a 400m, 1km, 2km or 3km ocean swim; 5km beach run; 5km beach walk and for kids 12yrs and under a 1km beach run. Something for everyone. So, pack everyone up one Sunday and get down there to register from 7:30am on race day.

If that sounds a little too strenuous and you are looking for something a little more laid back, there is a lot happening at the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens in Cape Town. The Galileo open air cinema is hosting weekly movie nights. What better movie to watch, during the week of love, than Bridget Jones’s Diary! It is also the season of the Sunday evening summer concerts with the fabulous blues musician, Dan Patlansky, on stage this coming weekend.

Get a group of friends together and plan that next holiday, the Travel Expo is back in Joburg on 11 and 12 Feb and promises many great travel deals, you’ll need time together in the van, there and back, to brainstorm your travel itinerary ideas. The international phenomenon, Blue Man Group, bring their award-winning production to Monte Casino this month and promises to be a real crowd pleaser.

Whatever it is that you have planned, don’t do it alone, grab a crowd, rent a van from Hertz Rent a Car for R999/day and get going.
