If you’re travelling through any of the four major airports in South Africa, consider parking your vehicle there as rates have been reduced for the festive season.

Until 13 January 2020, parking tariffs at OR Tambo International Airport, Cape Town International Airport, King Shaka International Airport and Port Elizabeth International Airport will cost you less than usual.

Travellers making use of parking facilities at these four airports will pay R500 for seven days or more. If your vehicle is already parked at the airport and you have been away for more than 15 days, you’re in luck as the whole stay will be free. But remember: All these specials only run until 13 January.

Bookings are not required for the peak period and the offer is subject to the availability of parking bays.

Peak travel for pleasure, not business

Airports Company South Africa (Acsa) corporate affairs group executive Refentse Shinners explained that the special holiday fares have been offered because business travel is limited at this time of year. 

“We are able to make this offer because a greater number of bays are available during the peak holiday season and the need to manage the availability of parking is reduced. 

“While we invite everyone flying out on holiday to take us up on the offer, the parking offer is open to all and we believe that this special parking offer will be most attractive to people who travel longer distances to airports; those who are not served by public transport and would generally prefer to be able to travel directly from home to the airport.”

Here’s where to park

Note that the pick-up facilities at any of the four airports are excluded.
