Durban Car Rental Mini Guide

Durban is developing as a tourist destination but remains most popular with domestic tourists. Drive your hire car to the Golden Mile which is the main area with gorgeous beaches to tempt sun seekers and surfers and is crammed with attractions for visitors. King Shaka/La Mercy Airport is situated 25 miles north of the city and many international airlines fly here from countries such as the UK, UAE, Germany and France. A pre-booked rental car with Rhino Car Hire can also be collected directly from the airport so you can head off on your holiday straight away.
