Safe travel to Bedforview

I'll be in Johannesburg at the end of November and have relatives to visit in Bedfordview. I'll be staying in Benoni, with a ride to the airport or Gautrain each morning. I would like advice on the best way to get to Bedfordview. Is the best option a taxi from the airport?

taxi is about your only option unless you book with a transfer company, or self drive

Thanks for getting back to me. Is getting a taxi from the airport best? Or is there a Gautrain Station that would be closer? Any ideas how much a taxi would be?

Not sure I get why you would want to go from Benoni to Bedfordview via either the airport or one of the Gautrain stations. Far simpler to go direct. Hiring a car and driving yourself not an option? It's a fairly simple drive albeit in heavy traffic.

Good to know that going direct is better. What is involved with hiring a car? How do I find a driver?

One thing I am puzzled about. If you have relatives in Bedford View:

a: why dont you ask them to pick you up

b: why dont you ask them for advise (they should know best)

c: why dont you ask them to make arrangements for you

There are great places to stay near Bedfordview. There is really nothing much to see near Benoni and not a great place to stay. Bedfordview is also near the airport and one of the airport transfer company's will get you from the airport to bedfordview fairly quickly and cheaper than going from Benoni.
