Arrange car hire at JNB Airport for efficient transport
Arranging car hire at JNB Airport is a wise choice for safe and efficient travelling around Johannesburg. South Africa is first world in many ways but still has a third world public transport system. With a few exceptions, buses, minibus taxis and trains are not regarded as safe, reliable or timeous. Hiring a car and driving yourself around the city will give you the assurance of having the safest, easiest and most efficient transport possible.
The bonuses of car hire at JNB Airport
If you hire a car you’ll have more control over your itinerary. You can change plans at a moment’s notice and drive where you need to, when you need to. You’ll also have the freedom to plan your own route, which is useful for avoiding traffic and roadworks.
Managing your own itinerary allows you to manage your own time. You’re likely to find that driving yourself will save you a lot of unnecessary waiting time. It will also help you to be on time for meetings or events and you won’t have to stay afterwards if you don’t want to.
Private taxis (don’t confuse these with minibus taxis) and tour buses are expensive. Car hire is very reasonably priced in comparison.
Johannesburg is the biggest and wealthiest city in South Africa. It’s located in Gauteng, the smallest of the nine provinces and SA’s economic capital. Johannesburg goes by various names including Joburg, Jozi and Egoli (meaning place of gold), and is abbreviated to JHB or JNB. The city is energetic and its people are constantly on the move.

South Africans are fiercely patriotic about their sports. Three favourites are cricket, rugby and soccer. If you have the opportunity to attend a match at one of the following venues, don’t hesitate-especially if the national team is playing!
