Durban King Shaka Airport Taxi

To curb illegal touting, ACSA (Airports Company South Africa) has appointed a concessionary taxi and shuttle service that covers all major towns, suburbs, shopping centres and casinos. This has had some success but catching a cab from Durban King Shaka Airport can still be daunting for visitors to Durban and the eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality area. Pre-booking of a King Shaka Airport taxi is often a better option.


Please use airport-approved operators only. Approved operators display the ACSA logo on their vehicles and are available outside the arrivals terminals. Contact the ACSA information desks if you need help or phone: +27 (0)11 921 6262.


Taxi services leave from in front of the Departures Terminal. There are a number of taxi companies working from the DUR Durban King Shaka International Airport and it is recommended to take one of these as opposed to an independent taxi. Please note that metered taxis are not allowed to drive around the city to solicit fares and instead must be called and ordered to a specific location.

  • A Hassan Taxis
  • Aussies Radio Taxis
  • Boshoff Taxis

 Unofficial Durban King Shaka Airport Taxi Service or Hire Points

 

Minibus taxis are by far the cheapest and most popular form of public transport in South Africa. But if you are a visitor to South Africa, using a taxi can prove bewildering and even frightening.


 
IHateTaxis.com does not recommend the unofficial Durban King Shaka Airport taxi service.

Unofficial taxis are not a safe form of transport.



 Pirate Durban King Shaka Airport Taxi Serivce

 

Pirate taxis may not have licensed drivers and may be a scam to take you to an undisclosed location for robbery and possibly more. Pirate taxis are those where there is no meter and discrepancies can occur between your initial quoted price and the price upon arrival. Personal safety concerns do exist in unofficial taxis, notably robberies and other more serious crimes.



 
IHateTaxis.com does not recommend the pirate Durban King Shaka Airport taxi service.

Do not take any pirate taxi from King Shaka Airport!
