Airport Transfers

The World Economic History Congress is proud to be partnered with The Green Cab as our official transport provider. The Green Cab are South Africa's first cost-effective (charging the same as normal cab services) and uncompromising green transport solution. This 100% women-owned taxi company uses liquefied petroleum gas and biodiesel, which significantly reduces harmful carbon emissions.

Travel Insurance

In order to protect against cancellation of your travel plans (including airline tickets, hotel deposits, etc), we recommend that attendees purchase travel insurance. Insuring your travel costs against unforeseen events is advisable and travel insurance can also cover any emergency medical expenses incurred while on your trip, as well as covering your rental car against possible accidents.

Car Hire

Europcar is one of South Africa's leading car rental companies and holds a Proudly South African membership. With over 30 years in the car rental industry, customer service remains at the core of their business.
