Booking cheap flights to Cape Town on a Budget

Travelling by air is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to get to Cape Town, especially if you are travelling from inland and strapped for a lot of spare time. But where do you start, with so many airlines competing for a place in the sky?

Cheap Flights To Cape TownWith us, flying to Cape Town does not need to cost the equivalent of your monthly mortgage. You can book cheap flights to Cape Town at the click of a button. We offer you the option to compare flights across all the mayor airlines, flying out the Cape Town on a daily basis. Daily inbound flights are scheduled from Durban, Johannesburg, Bloemfontein, Kimberley, George and Port Elizabeth, and frequent flights coming in from East London and Nelspruit (or the Kruger National Park, if you will). The hardest part is choosing the flight you want.

When you are booking your cheap flights to Cape Town, consider that all your options come in pairs.

  • You have access to two budget airlines; Kulula, operated by Comair, and Mango, proudly South African owned by SAA, so both competing with each other for the lowest fares.
  • If budget is not at the order of the day, but you still want value for your money, two full service airlines are available in the form of South African Airways, and British Airways, with a choice of two cabin classes; economy and business (though business will not be mentioned in a discussion about cheap flights)

A tip for the budget conscientious among you; when you book your cheap flight to Cape Town, select your departure and return date in the search engine and wait for the results to feed. It might be worth your time to book your outbound flight separately, as one airline might have the lowest fares inbound, but not outbound. Where Mango might have a good deal flying to Cape Town, more often than not, you’ll find it cheaper flying back on a different airline altogether.

Before booking your flight, also keep the peak travel seasons in mind which spans from November to February. No matter which airline you choose during the silly season, your flights will instantly be more expensive. If its budget travels you want, best book your trip months in advance, or visit the Mother City out of season.

Getting From the Airport

As you might have guessed, all inbound cheap flights to Cape Town will arrive at Cape Town International Airport, which just so happens to be ideally located between the city center and what is sure to be the highlight of your trip; the wine route. At the airport, you will find convenient transfers to most of the tourist hot spots, but due to is sheer size, you might want to rely on some form of independent transport. Certainly taxis and busses do provide options if you are not planning on going very far, but in the mood of travelling on a budget, you do not want to rely solely on them, as a few short trips can quickly burn a hole in your spending money.

To really appreciate what the city and outskirts have to offer, it is best advised to pick up a car at the airport; which you can also book simultaneously with your flight. Just be sure to make use of the shuttle service when exploring the wine route, as the bendy roads back to the city will suddenly become very treacherous.
