East London Airport Car Rental Mini Guide

If you have decided to explore East London by hire car, meet your representative in the main terminal. From the airport, you take the N2 highway into the town. There is not much public transport in this area, and it tends to be unreliable, so car hire is a good option.

The airport is 15km from the town of East London which lies almost halfway between Port Elizabeth and Durban on the coast of the Indian Ocean. Every day 20-30 flights land at the airport bringing in mostly holidaymakers to the region. The flights are domestic, and you can fly from the major airports in South Africa to East London Airport, for example from Cape Town or Johannesburg.
