Johannesburg Airport Car Rental Mini Guide

Johannesburg Airport welcomes millions of passengers to the city each year who go to experience the history and culture of South Africa’s largest city. Whilst there, many hire a car to visit the infamous Soweto Township which was the melting pot of the fight against apartheid.

Over fifty airlines operate at the airport, and it is one of only three airports that fly to all six inhabited continents. You can fly into Johannesburg Airport from many countries such as the UK, UAE, France. Germany and Malaysia. If you have pre-booked a hire car, and it is highly recommended to do so, then the companies’ desks can be found in the multi-storey parkade opposite the domestic terminal. At peak times it always pays to send a member of your group through to commence queuing or you may find your stay at the airport longer than expected. Getting to the city is easy from the airport. Take the R24 Airport Freeway to the N3 Eastern Bypass, which will lead onto the R21 which goes into the city centre.
