Transfer Drive

A transfer drive is a point-to-point journey between a starting point and a destination, without any stops or detours en route. Transfers are often used as an alternative to taxis when commuting between accommodation and airports, as they offer a dedicated airport transfer service at a reasonable price. Although commonly associated with journeying to an airport, transfer services are available as a means of commute between any two points in a town or city. A transfer service is charged by the journey or distance covered.  Read more about our Drive South Africa Transfer Service.
