Whether you’re travelling to Durban or you live here and are keen on exploring your city, the driving can be a deterrent. You’ve got to worry about hiring a car, making sure it fits your needs or space requirements, consider which routes to take and if you’re not familiar with the area you’re visiting you have to rely on sometimes unreliable technology or GPS to help you navigate.
Not to mention the fact that you’ve got to focus on driving safely which leaves you with less time and opportunity to focus on the world around you and parking takes a considerable amount of searching and driving only to be bested by mini and smaller cars when you think you’ve finally found a spot.
It sounds like a logistical hassle which is why we continue to offer our private transportation services but if you’re not sold on the idea just yet, we’ve compiled a list of fun activities to do in and around Durban from the time you land until you leave all while your transport and shuttle needs are taken care off. With so many fly-by-night private transportation companies we can safely say we have a reputable and long-standing reputation to ensure we always give our client the best and most comfortable transportation.
