Cape Town - Car Parking


Cape Town International has approximately 2600 parking bays with shade-net covering in the general car park, which runs along the length of the airport opposite the terminal buildings.

The newly commissioned Multi-Storey Parkade (MSP) is a five-storey facility offering an additional 2 000 parking bays to Cape Town International’s parking infrastructure. This new facility offers airport users more choice in terms of parking and is equipped with state of the art CCTV cameras, special trolley hoists for effective trolley management and a variable message system that displays the number of available parking bays.

Construction on another 2 600 bay facility will commence soon; to cater for the airport’s increasing traffic.

There is also a roaming shuttle service available that picks up passengers and drops them off throughout the car park and as close to the terminals as possible. Parkers should also note that there is a pay- on- foot system in place, with pay stations situated outside the terminal buildings only, thus no payments can be made at the exit. The pay stations accept coins (R1, R2 and R5) and notes (R10, R20, R50 and R100). All major credit cards are also accepted.

Parking tariffs are listed here. Please call (021) 935 5708 for general enquiries.

Foreign visitors leaving South Africa may claim back Value Added Tax on purchases from the VAT refund administrator. The goods have to be shown to the administrator before check-in.

The VAT refund office is on the ground level of International Departures. Only after a passenger has checked in and passed through passport control is the value of the VAT (less the administrator's commission) paid back. This happens on the ground level of International Departures, between passport control and the boarding gates.
