KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Pretoria

  • If you plan a visit to Pretoria, South Africa, consider doing yourself a favor by getting Pretoria car rentals to gain the flexibility of discovering several hidden gems and visiting many iconic landmarks. Pretoria has public transportation, but buses and trains operate on tight schedules. Besides, they are often crowded and noisy, making them uncomfortable. But with car rentals in Pretoria, comfort and convenience are guaranteed. You will conveniently drive to Transvaal Museum, Freedom Park, Voortrekker Monument, and Pretoria Zoo. Overall, car rentals in Pretoria let you explore unlimited locations.
  • Multiple airports serve flights to Pretoria. They include Pretoria Wonderboom Apt. Airport (PRY), Johannesburg OR Tambo Airport (JNB), and Lanseria International Airport (HLA). They are about 13 km (8 miles), 56 km (34.7 miles), and 63 km (39.1 miles) from the city center, respectively. If you arrive at PRY, the car rental desks are in the terminal building across from the baggage claim area. The car rental counters at JNB are at the north end of the dedicated rental car lot in the airport precinct. Travelers arriving at HLA can find rental counters on the ground floor in the multi-story parkade.
  • Generally, driving car rentals in Pretoria is manageable due to well-established roads within the city. But like in other cities worldwide, driving in Pretoria has its fair share of challenges, requiring you to remain attentive. Look out for pedestrians who may overlook traffic regulations and jaywalk. Keep a keen eye on commuter bus drivers who occasionally stop in the middle of the road when they sight potential passengers. Motorbikes use the same lanes as vehicles, so be careful with them as they may overlook traffic regulations.
  • Like other cities in South Africa, Pretoria experiences considerable traffic congestion during peak travel hours. Although most city roads are well-established and maintained, finding unpaved roads outside urban areas is unsurprising. Road construction also contributes to road delays. Many residents usually access the city with private vehicles. Typically, the city experiences traffic snarl-ups from 6:30 am to 9 am and 5 pm to 7 pm. Use alternative routes like Herbert Baker Street, Pretoria’s Church Street, or Duncan Street.
  • Book your rental car in Pretoria at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Premium rental cars in Pretoria are around 118% more expensive than other car types, on average

A smaller car is an even better option for a solo traveler. If you travel with your family or friends, consider one that will accommodate all of you. If you plan to visit destinations away from urban areas, look for a well-raised vehicle for navigation. In that case, an SUV is a great option for travelers on a budget.

  • Where are the best places to park in Pretoria?

    Finding a parking lot for your car rentals in Pretoria is manageable due to many options. Consider checking parking spots in downtown Pretoria.

After-hours drop-off was not clear, so I waited the extra 30 minutes until the branch opened to return. The return agent, nonetheless, was quick and courteous. While I refilled the tank before returning the vehicle, I was charged another R100 (about US$5.50) after return to top up the tank, even though the gauge was on Full. The distance-to-empty on the dashboard was higher when I returned it than when I received it.

I got the wrong car on pick up - not what I had booked. The upgrade offered was not suitable (much smaller loading space)

Cons:

I was massively overcharged (more than double) versus the price that was quoted online. I'm not sure how this happened as I don't believe I signed for it.

They told me they didn’t have the car I booked at the price I booked and forced me to “upgrade” and pay more to get the same car I already booked online. Classic bait and switch tactics, will never use Europcar again.
