 Pirate East London Airport Taxi Serivce


Unofficial or pirate taxis do operate at this airport, although efforts have been made to discourage them.

IHateTaxis.com does not recommend the pirate East London Airport taxi service.

Pirate taxis may 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. Pirate taxis may not have licensed drivers and personal safety concerns can exist, notably robberies and other more serious crimes. Make sure the taxi you using has the ACSA logo imprinted on it.
