Nelspruit Airport Guide

Nelspruit Airport is found on the outskirts of the South African city from which it takes its name. The bulk of its yearly traffic is made up of tourists bound for Kruger National Park. As the gates to the park are relatively far away, it is wise to visit by car hire at Nelspruit Airport.

The airport is small and privately-run, though it's much busier than expected from a mere regional hub. Those who visited some time ago may remember the days of the airport being in the actual park. The current facility is in Nelspruit, the provincial capital, located roughly 2 hours, 30 minutes by car from park gates.

With car rental at Nelspruit Airport you can enjoy local sites like the botanical gardens with the option of spending long days in the park. While southern portions of Kruger National Park are relatively close to Nelspruit, most of the sites worth seeing are further north and require some driving.

The airport sits on an offshoot of Kaapschehoop Avenue, which runs south from the H4 motorway and passes through Neslpruit along the way. The H4 highway also connects east to Mozambique or west to Johannesburg. The drive to Johannesburg takes 3 hours, 30 minutes with car rental at Nelspruit Airport.

There are no rail links running directly to the airport, making cheap car hire at Neslpruit Airport extra important. Mataffin Railway Station is about four miles north along D227 and connects both to Mozambique and Johannesburg.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
