Toby Pallett First Car Port Elizabeth Airport
“Would recommend Car Rentals”

“Would recommend Car Rentals. In my experience, renting cars never goes smoothly (getting something different to what you paid for, being charged for unfair damage etc) and the car hire companies don't normally excel in customer service to say the least. Renting with Car Rentals rather than directly with the hire company worked very well as they had a very efficient customer service team. Our car was supplied by First car rentals and the category of car that we paid for was not available. We were given a car several categories below but no refund. When we returned from holiday a short call with Car rentals resulted in a significant refund.”

“Booking collection and return of car…”

“Booking collection and return of car all good and easy. Payment of deposits and subsequent billing details bitty and confusing. Return of deposit very vague and slow. Haven't received mine yet after 15 days!”

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.
