Cheap Car Rentals at Durban Airport

The full range of car rental agencies are on offer at Durban's King Shaka International Airport...and vehicles are the same no matter which car rental agency you hire from, so generally it makes sense to just go with the cheapest (taking free km and rates per kilometre into account, in addition to the baseline price).

*Important : Have cash ready for tolls. To drive out of King Shaka Airport you have to go through some tolls, so be sure to keep cash handy. As you travel north on the N3 there's a toll at the Tongaat Tolll Plaza and to the south towards the city there's the La Mercy Ramp Plaza. Navigate to Foresight Publications' N2 Toll Road Tariffs to check what the current toll fees are.

Ask for assistance
Our petrol-heads would love to help you!

The way to make sure that you book the cheapest car is by checking the cost of hiring a car at all the agencies (As you exit the airport you'll see all the Durban car hire agencies in a line - see photo below). Or simply use the car rental comparison tool on the right to assist you in this regard.

Warning - there are criminals active at King Shaka Airport and in Durban, who especially target lone travellers with laptops. They may follow you from the airport & break into your car when you get out to check in at your hotel. We recommend hiring a sedan rather than a hatchback and locking your goods in the boot (trunk) of the vehicle.
