Airport Tips and Tricks
- Free WiFi
Make use of the free 30-minutes worth of WiFi that is available throughout terminals A and B. If you are not travelling with a laptop or mobile device, there are several internet cafés to choose from if you need to access the internet.
- Online Check-in
Skip the queue and save time by checking-in online up to 24 hours in advance of your flight and in the comfort of your home or at your office.
- Medical emergencies
If you have a medical emergency, require immunizations or other medical services, there are medical staff on duty around the clock.
There are car rentals available through a number of agencies if you would like to drive yourself around. Another option is the world-class Gautrain and the station is above the central terminal building, making it extra convenient. There are also approved taxi services and bus shuttles outside the arrivals area.
- Things to avoid:
- For your own safety do not accept just any taxi service, make sure that the taxi you use has the ACSA logo on their vehicle – this means it is an approved operator.
- Do not leave your luggage unattended
- Do not leave valuables, like a laptop, unnecessarily out in the open, rather keep them well-hidden.
