Top tips for renting a car at Skukuza airport

  • Renting car hire at Skukuza Airport is one of the best ways to travel, with many people finding it essential when visiting the nearby Kruger National Park. With two major providers stationed at Skukuza Airport, you've got a wide variety of vehicle options, from economy and standard to seven-seaters. The ease with which you can get on the road is a major plus compared to bigger airports.
  • Make your vehicle choice wisely depending on what you'd like to get out of your trip. For example, a smaller car is well suited to one or two travellers with little luggage, who want to get from one place to another with no frills. However, if you're using your car hire to explore the outdoors, like Kruger Park for example, and you've got a few people travelling with you, then consider investing in a seven-seater or an SUV for more comfort and flexibility.
  • Skukuza Airport operates direct flights only with Johannesburg and Cape Town, so you shouldn't expect too much airport traffic when arriving or departing. This is good news for renting a car, as you don't need to rush through crowds of travellers or arrive extra early to drop off the vehicle. That said, you should always book your car hire well in advance, not only to secure the lowest price, but also to ensure your preferred vehicle is there when you arrive.
  • Be mindful that Kruger Park is a wildlife reserve, so whenever you get on the road with your rental car, you can expect a herd of antelopes – or other game – to block your path. Just wait and give the wildlife priority on the roads. There's not much else you can do and, also, it can make for a spectacular sight. Furthermore, park rangers are available en-route to offer directions and general guidance.
  • Book your rental car at Skukuza airport at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at Skukuza airport

  • How do I find  car hire at Skukuza Airport?

    Car hire at Skukuza Airport is very straightforward. You get off the plane, pass through the arrivals lounge, grab your luggage and speak to your car hire provider. Within about 20min, you can grab your keys and get going. If your vehicle or provider is not based at the airport, there are off-site alternatives based in Skukuza Main Camp (2.19 miles from the airport, or about 10min away), which is reachable by airport shuttle.

  • Do I need a credit card to rent a car at Skukuza Airport?

    You'd need to check with your car hire provider, but, generally, it is possible to rent a car with either a debit and a credit card at Skukuza Airport. If you're using a debit card, it must be either VISA or Mastercard – no prepaid or electronic payment cards are allowed at Skukuza Airport car hire. Be aware that you may not be able to rent for longer than 28 days if your security deposit is covered via a debit card.

  • What documentation do I need for car hire at Skukuza Airport?

    When you're at the hire desk at Skukuza Airport, you need to present your driver's licence, a photo ID, your debit or credit card, and, in some cases, an international driving permit. You need to be 20 years old or older to rent from Skukuza Airport providers and you may need to pay a young driver's fee if you're under 25. In most cases, you must have had your driver's licence for over a year, but with more expensive cars, that length might be up to two years.

  • Where can I fill up my tank near Skukuza Airport?

    Your best bet in getting a full tank is the fuel station at Skukuza Rest Camp, 2.19 miles from the airport. This should be comfortably on your way back to catch your flight if you're coming from the direction of Kruger Park. Be sure to check your rental agreement before handing your keys in – if it's a fair fuel policy, you'll want to return the car with a full tank, otherwise, you might get overcharged for the refill.

  • Which car rental companies will pick you up at Skukuza airport?

    Car rental companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from Skukuza airport to off-airport locations include Avis, and Budget.
