Car rental location Port Elizabeth Airport

Port Elizabeth Airport Guide

Port Elizabeth Airport is an important regional hub, offering quick connections to Cape Town and Johannesburg. Driving times from these cities to Port Elizabeth is long, so the best plan for most tourists is to first fly in and then pick up pre-arranged car rental at Port Elizabeth Airport.

The airport is accessed by Aerodrome Way (M11), a secondary road that joins the M4 along the coast. Directly across the street from the airport is Valley Railway Station with commuter access to terminals across the city and metropolitan area. There are also several terminals near the port along Settlers Way and Humewood Drive.

Port Elizabeth is accessed by National Highway 2, which passes north of the city centre. This road is called the Great Western Way and connects all the way to Johannesburg, a 10-hour drive. Along the way are the type of coastal vistas and landscapes expected in South Africa.

The city centre is also a point of convergence for several secondary highways accessing the countryside. Driving into the city center is quick and convenient with car hire at Port Elizabeth Airport. Drive east to Settler Way, which follows the coast closely and takes you to the city centre in 20 minutes.

Cheap car hire at Port Elizabeth Airport is an essential part of making your visit worthwhile. Public transportation exists, but many of these options are regarded as unsafe for tourists. The security and comfort afforded by a hire car is well worth the cost.

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).
