Customer questions about Lilongwe Airport car hire

Hello Fiona, I'm looking for a 4x4 vehicle to rent from Malawi, Lilongwe airport, for 15 days. Need to take vehicle to Zambia too.

Hi, we would just need to check the cross border terms and condition to ensure you are permitted to travel into Zambia, can you please just let me know which car / retnal agent you are looking at so I can check please?

Can you supply a trailer with the 8 seater combi at Lilongwe Airport?

Hi, can you please let me know the rental dates / times you require and I will quote for you now. Many thanks.

I will be arriving at Lilongwe on the 1st July and want to hire a minibus for a week. do you have anything larger than the vw combi such as a toyota hiace or quantum?

Hi, I can see your quote on my screen here. For your pick up time we cannot arrange a minibus I am afraid, however if you set pick up 9am (1 hour later) our rental agent that has minibuses available is then open and you can book. Is moving pick up by 1 hour possible?

A Mini Guide to Lilongwe

Who Travels to Lilongwe Airport?
Often it’s travellers that want to combine seeing an exciting country with helping out as a volunteer, so you’re likely to see many young people, often backpacking, on your flight. The city is pleasant and has good infrastructure and sometimes doesn’t feel like you’re in an African city. For this reason many choose it for a short stay from South Africa and enjoy the sights and sounds of the old town.

How Easy is it to get to Lilongwe Airport?
It’s not too bad getting to the airport. You might have expected that the capital city of a country might have flights from outside the continent but to get to Lilongwe Airport from the UK you’re going to have to fly to Addis Ababa or Johannesburg’s OR Tambo airports and connect from there. Getting into the city is quite straightforward with bus and taxi links as well as the availability of car hire at the airport.

Lilongwe International Airport

What is the Airport Like?
The airport is quite basic for what is essentially more of a regional airport than an international one. There are no air bridges for disembarkation, you’ll have to walk to the terminal from your plane and the facilities of the airport are quite limited once you’re inside. You won’t find banks, ATMs or currency exchange apart from a local, infrequently manned small bureau which offers poorer rates. On departure there is only one basic eating place serving tea and excellent coffee. No fixed shops are found at the airport but there are often a couple of ‘market stalls’ selling local souvenirs.
