Reliable Johannesburg Airport taxi service
Starting your vacation in South Africa by fighting your way through limited public transport options and waiting in line at ticket counters is not ideal. Instead, you deserve the peace of mind that a private, air-conditioned and comfortable Johannesburg Airport taxi brings.
Once you’ve made your way through baggage claim at Johannesburg Airport, your English-speaking driver will be waiting for you just outside of the arrivals terminal holding a sign with your name on it. To make sure everything runs smoothly, your driver will receive live updates on any delayed flights, so they will be there waiting no matter what time you arrive. Once you’ve met your driver, they will help you with your luggage and lead you to your pre-selected vehicle.
During your Johannesburg Airport transfer, your driver will tell you about some hidden gems in the city and share some of the best things to see and do during your trip. With all of your transfer needs covered by Welcome, all that’s left for you to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the stunning South African scenery as you make your way to your hotel.

Directions for your taxi from Johannesburg Airport
O.R Tambo International Airport (JNB) is the busiest airport in Africa and the main hub for domestic and international flights to and from Johannesburg. The shortest route from the airport to the city centre is approximately 34 km, taking around 40 minutes in a Johannesburg Airport taxi.
Upon starting your Johannesburg Airport transfer, your driver will exit the airport compound and then merge onto the R24 highway, heading southeast to the central district of the city. The highway will eventually become Albertina Sisulu Boulevard, which runs through the heart of the city. From there, your driver will use the local roads to reach the exact location of your hotel.
Cost of a Johannesburg Airport taxi
Taxis at Johannesburg Airport calculate fares using a taximeter based on the distance travelled. So the cost of your Johannesburg Airport transfer will depend on the exact location of your hotel downtown.
Nevertheless, the estimated fare for a transfer from Johannesburg Airport to Johannesburg is €30 (ZAR 600).
It’s worth noting that there may be additional charges added to your total fee for things such as excess luggage, travelling during holidays or late at night. To ensure a flat-rate fee with no hidden extras, we recommend booking your Johannesburg Airport taxi in advance.
