Hi there

There are taxi's at the Airport that you can make use off. The fee that you should be paying should not be more than R300.00 for 2adults from the Airport to the City Center. I can also suggest that you book your transfer online with a transfer company, which will be waiting for you at arrivals with a welcome board. You can go to www.capetown-direct.com and request a quote from them too for a booked Private Airport Transfer.

Best Regards

Hi anoopcosmos

As Hank says I would book the transfer online.

You can either search for Airport taxis Cape town on Google or on Tripadvisor.

We had our hotel (An African Villa) book someone to pick us up from CPT airport. From the airport to Tamboerskloof (very close to city center), it was R300. Totally worth it! They hold up a sign w/ your name at baggage claim. Easy, peasy! : )

There is a public transport option with the MyCiti bus airport transfer service, but if you're a family the costs involved won't be significantly cheaper than booking an airport pickup service. Also this option would involve you having to walk the final piece to the hotel.

For your own peace of mind, organise a pickup rather than relying on finding a taxi at the airport. Less hassle, less fuss.

I would definitely prebook a transfer especially as you will be with family. Maybe the hotel has a shuttle service from the airport. Have you asked them.?
