How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Cape Town
Your adventure to Cape Town starts as soon as you’ve satisfied all the security checks. We’ve summarized a few hints and tips to help you pass through quickly:

  • Have your boarding pass and travel ID within easy reach. They’ll be the first things you’ll be asked for by airport security personnel.
  • Belts, coins and keys must be put in a bin for X-raying. If you pass through the body scanner with any one of these items, you’ll be instructed to turn back and remove them.
  • Make sure your phone, laptop and other electronic devices are easily accessible. These items need to be sent through the X-ray machine in separate trays.
  • When it comes to traveling with gels or liquids, all passengers are allowed a quart-sized clear resealable bag to transport containers no bigger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).
  • Hiking boots and other bulky shoes are often X-rayed at the security checkpoint. It might be wise to wear simple sneakers instead.
  • Put any pocketknives or other sharp items in your checked luggage. Security personnel don’t permit these aboard the aircraft.

How to find cheap flights

What is the best day to buy a plane ticket?

Airfares offered on Friday tend to be the cheapest, according to flight demand on Travelocity.ca in 2021. Purchasing your airfares on a Thursday or Saturday can also provide better value, however our advice if you’re looking to save money is to avoid booking on a Wednesday or Sunday. Our data shows that those two days have the highest ticket values on average, so keep this in mind if you’re browsing flight deals.

 

What are the cheapest days to fly?

Frequent travellers may already know this, earlier in the week is often the cheapest time to fly. Flights departing on a Monday are the cheapest of the week. Since flights towards the middle of the week tend to be more popular, this causes the prices to rise. This is why, on average, airfares booked on Travelocity.ca in 2021 were most expensive for Wednesday departures.

 

How far in advance can you book a flight?

Here’s the deal: It is typically possible to start comparing international airfares on Travelocity.ca up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to our 2021 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest fares appearing 2-4 weeks prior to their travel dates.

*According to flight demand on Travelocity.ca from January to December 2021. Savings are subject to change and may vary depending on selections made.

Flights To Cape Town

Your flight to Cape Town will touch down in the futuristic gleam of the updated Cape Town International Airport (CPT), and just outside is a city alive with individuality and spirit. Head to the picturesque waterfront to take in traditional Zulu music in the shadow of the Ferris wheel. While there, you may be lucky enough to see seals basking in the sun, or the bright red glow of the season’s phytoplankton blooms. Wherever you end up, gorgeous scenery and unexpected wildlife await when you fly into South Africa’s “Mother City.”

Transportation From CPT

All travelers on flights to Cape Town benefit from modern amenities as soon as the plane touches down, including a full-service bank and post office. Recharge with a cup of coffee or fresh-caught seafood before you make your way to your hotel near Cape Town International. Hotel shuttles are the most convenient transportation, so prearrange with your lodging, if possible. If you don’t have a shuttle, you can find authorized taxis at the cab stands outside the terminals, or rent a car and cruise down Route N2 to get to the beach in no time (just be aware that driving can be dangerous at night). For a more economical option, take the MyCiti rapid bus to the Civic Centre Station downtown. This bus system runs to many popular tourist destinations, like Table View, where you can snap that picture-perfect image of the iconic Table Mountain. Want to feel the wind in your hair? Renting a motorbike or even a three-wheeled sidecar is your ticket to freedom.
