THIS AIRPORT CLOSED IN APRIL 2010
South African roads are excellent and hiring a car is the best way to see the surrounding countryside and parks in the Kwazulu-Natal region. There are eight car rental firms situated within the grounds of Durban International Airport (DUR), all of which are listed below.
The various desks of the car hire companies at Durban Airport are all located in the Arrivals areas, and between them there is a comprehensive selection of vehicles in every category.
Within the city of Durban itself, car rental operators tend to come and go. However, Imperial and Tempest car hire companies are two of South Africa's most established firms and both offer competitively priced car rental at Durban Airport.

Car Rental, Driving and Parking in Durban
The roads around Durban are good and the area is easy to drive around. However, in most cases, car rental companies at the airport expect you to return the car to the office, rather than dropping it off elsewhere in South Africa. Many people driving outside of Durban choose to visit Drakensberg to the west, or the many marine reserves located to the north and around Zululand.
A number of car parks are available within the city of Durban, although many of the best hotels do provide their own parking areas.
