In these tough economic times, people can find it pretty hard to budget for a trip away to another city. In South Africa, Durban is a great option for a budget holiday due to the relatively lower cost of living when compared to other cities. This is a fact known to many, judging by the congested highways into the city during holiday periods. An alternative to driving for hours on end to reach the city is to fly in. With budget airlines like Kulula and Mango, it will not break the bank. This does pose a dilemma though. How to get around Durban when you are not driving your own car into the city. There are many car hire Durban options right at the airport. You would be able to rent out a vehicle to use during your stay. Budget options like a hatchback can even be rented at cheaper daily rates if a rental company is running a special. The problem with this, for many people is the responsibility of a hired vehicle along with the booking, confirmation, and admin and pick-up process. Car hire at Durban airport may also not be an option if you do not have a credit card, as this is the method of payment. You may also have someone pick you up and drop you back off at the airport. King Shaka Airport has a designated area for this which is free for a little while. This is only an option though, if you know someone in Durban who would be willing to transport you from the airport. A taxi can also be taken to and from the airport. It is an expensive option with the tally rocketing up if taxis are used throughout the holiday. Definitely not the budget route. An option close to that of a taxi service would be the King Shaka Airport shuttle service.
