Close by, the city of Johannesburg is home to a wealth of accommodation options for those with an Avis Car hire, but if you prefer to remain close to the airport you have a few options – from the pocket-friendly City Lodge to the ultra-swish Intercontinental Johannesburg hotel.
There are so many reasons to visit us in Gauteng - we hope to welcome you soon!
Beyond OR Tambo International Airport
Regardless of the nature of your visit, you will find several attractions within easy reach with your Avis Hire Car if you have a few hours to spare after arrival at O.R. Tambo Airport.
For starters you could fire up the engines of your Avis hire car and head to the Emperor’s Palace, just 2km away on the R21, to take in a show, enjoy a bite to eat, or try your luck in the casino.
Modderfontein Nature Reserve
If glittering entertainment is not on the cards for the day, head off in the other direction on the M84 and take a hike, or just relax in the Modderfontein Nature Reserve, a tranquil paradise for bird lovers.
Royal Johannesburg Golf Course
You can hire a set of golf clubs and enjoy some driving of a different kind at the Royal Johannesburg Golf Course, found 12 km away from OR Tambo via the R24.
Robin’s Nest Day Spa
Another relaxing option is the chance to catch up on some pampering at the Robin’s Nest Day Spa in Benoni, some 20-odd kilometres down the R21 and N12.
The city of ‘Jozi’, as it is affectionately known, is just 24km away and jam-packed with malls, restaurants and historic sites to take in during your visit.
Team up with Avis to get the best out of your trip to Johannesburg and be sure to plan a return trip to take in the sights and sounds of this city of gold.
