I think what they're trying to achieve is improving security around the airport. If you don't have to be there you shouldn't. Otherwise it becomes a thoroughfare for thugs. Already it's quite an issue to secure passengers leaving the airport. If you don't need to use the airport, you shouldn't be there.
The cost of arriving at the airport less stressed and on time is priceless. I will always fork out the extra.
|ACSA Parking||R 1,728.00|
|Valet Parking - Mr Parking||R 900.00|
|EZ Shuttle||R 1,200.00|
There is a cheap long term parking option at ORT, you just book online and prepay. It works very smoothly.
No the new long term parking is at the airport, parkade 2 I thinkIs that the one off Griffiths Road, and you catch a shuttle to the terminal? I've used it when I was staff for an airline, but never as a member of the public, or though I think you can, don't think you even need to prebook. AKA Super South Parking.
As per this chart, it would cost 770 rands to park 14 days at ORT. Not sure if link is up to date though.It all depends on how long you are away for, sometimes the Gautrain can be one of the cheaper options. And yes, I agree it is the most convenient option of them all, regardless of cost.
Take this costing example for a 14-day trip in December, from Pretoria, and using Uber to/from the Hatfield Gautrain, that I just did quickly:
ACSA Parking R 1,728.00 Valet Parking - Mr Parking R 900.00 EZ Shuttle R 1,200.00 Gautrain/Uber R 900.00 Uber R 1,014.00
In this case, I would choose the Gautrain. Just depends on the flights though.
No the new long term parking is at the airport, parkade 2 I think
Long term parking would cost you R884.00 in this case. 01/06 - 14/06
edit: corrected price and added dates
