This privately owned airport provides domestic flights to Durban and Cape Town, providing a quick and convenient link for many in the country. Often a car hire at Johannesburg Lanseria Airport is chosen by many due to the ease of getting into the city and neighbouring Pretoria.

We recommend using citywide parking garages that provide security and peace-of-mind. On-street paid parking is indicated by appropriate signage, and normally a metre will be present. Many hotels, tourist attractions and restaurants have free parking available and are a good option. Never leave anything of value in the car, especially visible.
