Location information for Stellenbosch

Introduction

Stellenbosch is located in the heart of the South African wine region. It's the country's second-oldest city, where you'll still find many houses from the days the Cape was a Dutch colony. The city's center houses the best-preserved buildings from the days of the Dutch East India Company. Stellenbosch also houses one of the oldest universities in South Africa, which guarantees an exuberant nightlife. The Stellenrijck Museum is dedicated to the history of wine making.

Population

The city has almost 120,000 inhabitants.

Location

Stellenbosch is located in the southwest of South Africa, in the Western Cape Province, only 55 kilometers from Cape Town. The city lies in the valley of the First River, surrounded by hills and mountains. The highest peaks lie south of the city with the Victoria Peak (1590 meters) being the highest.

Economy

Together with Paarl and Franschhoek, Stellenbosch forms the largest and main winegrowing area of South Africa. The wines from this region are of top quality. Approximately 1 billion liters of wine are produced here annually. In Stellenbosch a lot of viticulture research is done, for example at the university, which is attended by approximately 25,000 students.

Airports

The nearest airport is Cape Town International Airport which is situated west of Stellenbosch and which is reachable by rental car within half an hour. From the city center you first take the Alexander Road and then Adam Tas, Baden Powell Drive (R310) and freeway N2 to the airport. The way is clearly signposted.

Public Transport

Stellenbosch has no public transport, but there are regional bus connections with for example Cape Town, Paarl and Strand. The city also has a train station, but the MetroRail trains run very irregularly.

Traffic and Parking

Stellenbosch' center is small and you can visit the main places of interest by foot. There are no street signs; the names of the streets are indicated in yellow letters near the curb. Stellenbosch has sufficient parking facilities. A rental car is ideal if you want to visit the Stellenbosch Wine Route: a trip along the nicest vineyards of the region.

Hotels

Stellenbosch has a large variety of accommodations. You can stay in a dormitory at the Backpackers Lodge, but also in an elegant and luxurious room at D'Ouwe Werf. Also fun and elegant, but less expensive is the Oude Leeszaal which has been turned into a guesthouse. There are also several other guesthouses, lodges and midrange hotels in Stellenbosch and surroundings.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is EasyTerra Car Hire the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
