Getting from Airport to Sandton

HI, could anyone recommend a cheap and safe way to get from Johannesburg Airport to Sandton. We've not picked our hotel yet, but it's likely to be something like the Palazzo IC or the Indaba (we're still having discussions about the price we're willing to pay!). It's the end of our 3 week trip to SA and we'll be flying in from Vic Falls at about 15:00. Is there any sort of safe and reliable bus service or should we grab a cab?

Hi,

Arrange with your hotel to be collected at the airport. Please check which airport you are flying into, since there are two that receive a service from Vic Falls.

They are Johannesburg International (which will be renamed to Oliver R Thambo when the government 'bulldozes' its way through the checks).

The second airport is Lanseria.

HI THERE

Other possible options are to contact some of the car rental agencies like AVIS. They now have chaffeur driven services that are very convenient. I am not sure how their cost compare to what the hotel might charge. you will need to check if youre hotel will charge you to pick you up.

another option is www.sacab.co.za. they are basically a taxi service but they use the typically english taxi vehicles which they have imported from the UK. If you want to feel a bit closer to home

have a safe trip

Thanks everybody. We've now booked the Hilton, so we'll be in touch with them, but I'm also looking at the taxi firm mentioned. Thanks once again.
