Do search around for quotes. Check reviews (on independent sites). When paying in foreign currency with a card, dont accept the conversion offered by the machine as this is more expensive. For UK Visa turnarounds, budget at least 3 days extra when outsourced parties involved (eg TLS), as embassy turnaround excludes transit. If travelling with small children, Emirates service is amazing. Do put Lastovo island (Croatia) on your bucket list.

For a small international airport everything worked smoothly. All car hire company's are located outside the teminal. The motorway is only 2 mins away.

Durban has beautiful tourist attractions both north and south. Also some of the best breaches in the world. Travel around and explore but be safe and stay safe. Pay heed to all security tips and take care.

Good selection of stores restaurants and services for a smaller airport. They need to put signs by baggage claim that you should not step out to public until all bags are picked up. I gave my brother a part of my luggage right I. Front of security and when I went to retrieve more, they escorted me out did a full security and ID check etc and had me re-enter baggage claim through separate entrance. This could have been avoided if there was a sign. I understand it is for security reasons but it was humiliating and made my re-union with my family after 2 years very strained and stressful.

Use Avis to rent a car and with having a car try not to travel at night. Be alert even during the day and make sure all belongings are hidden from plain sight.
