Airport shuttle in Johannesburg – O.R. Tambo International.

Planning a trip to South Africa is exciting, especially if it is your first visit. Travellers always have a lot of questions about the public transport system. One that is frequently posed to me on forums: “What is the best and safest way to transfer from the airport?” I cannot blame them because so much has been said about safety and the lack of public transport in South Africa.

If you are planning a trip to South Africa then you will undoubtedly fly into O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg. Chances are good that you will also fly out of the City of Gold.

Even though South Africa is not a Public Transport paradise and has limitations there are options available. All it takes is a little bit of pre-planning on your side before you depart . In my opinion the best and safest alternative is to pre-book an Airport Shuttle.

How to book an Airport Shuttle on-line?

Say for example you have booked accommodation in Edenvale and need to transfer from O.R. Tambo International. After completing a couple of questions you have an on-line quote within seconds. I find this really helpful to budget for transport costs and it is good to know that the prices are fixed. If you want to make a booking, proceed to the next screen where you will be required to fill out information about your pick-up date and time, flight number and delivery address. Proceed to pay and a confirmation with pick-up details will be send to you.

The same applies if you need to transfer to the airport. Another option that I like is the point-to-point inner shuttle service. There are also a number of attractive Tours and Charter options to choose from.

Domestic flights leaving from Lanseria international Airport.

There are currently two domestic airlines in South Africa that fly on a daily basis between Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg – and Mango. If you have a flight leaving to any of these cities then you will be pleased to know that the Airport Shuttle also runs to and from Lanseria International Airport. The same procedure applies when you want to make a booking.

For that extra peace of mind pre-book an Airport Shuttle and know that someone will be waiting for you at the arrival hall and drive you safely to your destination.

I have been fortunate to have done quite a bit of travelling over the last 10 years. By heart I am an adventurer and I love exploring new places, cultures and food. Travelling can become stressful and expensive. Over the years I have learnt to travel as cost effective as possible, simply by travelling more clever. is a Adventure and Budget Travel site where I review Airlines, Accommodation, Transport, Restaurants and give helpful travel information.
