AIRPORT TRANSFERS & SHUTTLES

In 2022 we celebrate 30 years of service to the cruise ship industry. During this time we have transported well over 1 million passengers safely and without a major incident, to cruise ships in both Durban and Cape Town.

Airport Transfers are regulated by the department of transport in South Africa with each vehicle requiring an operating permit by the transport court and every vehicle needs to pass an annual roadworthy test, the drivers need to have a public driving permit with no police record,  and the operator to ensure a minimum R1 million passenger liability insurance. We ask the question: “How much is a life worth”? To us it is priceless, but what we offer is a whopping R30 million cover which comes at a huge cost, which we include in our shuttle price.

Airport Transfers should be a seamless connection between the airport and the ship and to ensure that you get there safely we, as responsible operators, employ luggage porters at both the airport and harbour. Why do we say that you may ask? Well if a driver has to load and offload luggage he becomes tired and worn out and the chances of him having an accident are thereby greatly increased so hence we have since the very beginning, always employed luggage porters. We have YOUR safety foremost in our minds.

Airport Transfers can be done in a multitude of ways. There is the shuttle bus, which leaves usually once every hour. Then for those who do not wish to wait for the bus, we offer a private transfer service at a cost much higher than the shuttle. We do not permit passengers in wheelchairs to board our shuttle bus and instead we suggest that they make use of our dedicated transport service with a wheelchair lift and a dedicated driver who is knowledgeable and caring for the disabled.
