Top tips for renting a car at Durban King Shaka Intl airport

  • The Durban King Shaka International Airport (DUR), also referred to as the King Shaka International Airport and abbreviated as KSIA, is a safe and convenient place to secure a car rental. In a Durban King Shaka International Airport car rental, you can explore the coast, drive throughout Durban to soak in its rich cultural fusion, or explore the natural wonders of The Umgeni River or Table Mountain, both less than a 2-hour drive away from DUR. In a Durban King Shaka International Airport car rental, you can experience this corner of South Africa on your own schedule.
  • The Durban King Shaka International Airport is an ideal place to rent a car because the airport provides so many services and amenities that you can take advantage of once your plane arrives, including shops, restaurants, currency exchange, a grocery store, a pharmacy, and more. You can take care of whatever business you need to do at the airport before collecting your rental car. If you need to wait before you collect your rental car, the Durban Airport has a number of exclusive lounges that you can access either by paying at the door or presenting a prepaid lounge pass.
  • Securing a car rental at Durban King Shaka International Airport has the advantage of extended hours. Many of the rental car agencies at the Durban Airport have longer hours of operation than car rental agencies located in Durban or in Durban downtown. For example, the Budget agency at the Durban Airport is open from 6:30 am until 9:30 pm. Most rental car companies within the city of Durban open at approximately 8:00 am and close around 5 pm.
  • When you secure your reservation for a car rental at the Durban King Shaka International Airport, it is important that you confirm with the agency what international travel documents, if any, you will need to present in order to collect your rental car. For example, some agencies might want you to have an International Driver's Permit as well as your valid US driver's license. Some agencies might also want you to show your passport at the time of car collection.

Was charged $300 USD for a scratched plastic hub cap. Will be disputing the charge via my credit card, and will spread the word about never renting from Thrifty anywhere in the world.

Cons:

We were not welcomed at the car park, in fact we were ignored on pickup and return. Taking a carrolla I expected a decent amount of power.going up hills required frequent use of first gear. On returning the car, we should have received the charges. A week later, I have not seen the final bill.

No central locking for any of the economy cars - this is a basic feature, also necessary for basic safety in South Africa. Otherwise, the car was great

Contract should stipulate that the e-toll cost will be for customer’s account just for clarity. Otherwise a good deal and no problems at all. Well done to Tempest and Europcar through whom it was hired. Thank you!

Pros:

Car was a Kia Sportage, nice car, easy to drive. Staff all helpful and friendly. Would use them again.

Cons:

Rear cover was missing in the boot. Wasn't noticed on pickup and only noticed on return. I thought it had been left out because they get stollen or damaged? Cruise control would have been nice to have on the car.

I booked my vehicle 2 months in advance. When I went to pick up the vehicle was not available. They offered another vehicle at no extra cost which was ok. I was offered additional insurance which was supposed to be R480 but when I saw my bank statement I was actually charged over R800 Returned the vehicle with a full tank of fuel but was charged R1088.56 for fuel charges I had to then send proof of payment for the fuel and I'm still waiting for my refund. not a great experience

Pros:

Staff were very friendly and polite. Vehicle was in good condition.

Cons:

Although the booking had been made correctly by my company and the card payment details were provided, I had to leave my personal credit card details as security before the vehicle was released to me. I then had to return the following day with my company secretary to avoid being charged twice for the booking. A very inconvenient experience, as this involved a 50k round trip to the airport. The booking was for a SUV, but the vehicle provided turned out to be a 4wd pick-up truck with a hard cover at the back, no luxury features and no built-in GPS system, which was disappointing considering the price we paid.
