KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Pretoria

  • Car hire in Pretoria offers various advantages. Having a car provides convenience and flexibility to explore the city and its surrounding areas. Some notable attractions near Pretoria, such as the Union Buildings, Voortrekker Monument, and National Botanical Garden, are more accessible and easier to navigate with a car. It allows you to take scenic drives to attractions like Hartbeespoort Dam or the Cradle of Humankind. Car hire in Pretoria also eliminates the need to rely on public transportation schedules, giving you the freedom to travel on your terms.
  • When arriving in Pretoria, the closest major airport is OR Tambo International Airport (JNB), located in Johannesburg. Car hire offices at OR Tambo International Airport are situated in the car hire area, which is a short walk from the terminals. It's recommended to make a reservation in advance to ensure availability. There is no need for an airport shuttle, as the car hire offices are easily accessible. Other airports that serve the city include Wonderboom Airport (PRY), offering smaller-scale Pretoria car hire options for those preferring a less busy airport experience.
  • When driving in Pretoria, it's important to be aware of the local driving culture and road regulations. Drivers in the city can be aggressive, especially when travelling on the highway, so remember not to engage with aggressive drivers. Stick to the speed limit and ensure you're driving correctly. Pay attention to pedestrians, as they may cross the road unexpectedly. Be cautious on roads with informal settlements, as pedestrians may use them as walkways. Familiarise yourself with local road signs and traffic rules to ensure a safe driving experience in Pretoria.
  • Pretoria experiences heavy traffic during morning and afternoon rush hours. Major roads such as the N1, N4, and R21 can become congested. It's best to avoid travelling during peak hours, particularly from 07:00 - 09:00 and 16:00 - 18:30, to minimise delays. While seasons in Pretoria are generally mild, occasional heavy rainfalls during summer can cause road hazards. Additionally, it's important to note that certain rural roads may have potholes, so exercise caution when driving in less-developed areas.

However, if you plan to explore beyond the city and embark on adventures to nearby national parks or game reserves, hiring a 4x4 SUV or a sturdy off-road vehicle would be advantageous.

Additionally, it's crucial to be aware of speed cameras that are installed in certain areas to monitor and enforce speed limits. Observe the posted speed limits and exercise caution to avoid any penalties or fines.

  • Where are the best places to park in Pretoria?

    Pretoria offers various parking options for visitors. When exploring the city centre, there are both street parking and car parks available. Street parking in metered zones may require payment, usually averaging around 15-25 ZAR (South African Rand, approximately 0.6 -1 GBP) per hour. It's advisable to have some cash on hand for small payments. Additionally, many shopping centres and attractions provide dedicated parking lots, often free of charge or for a minimal fee. Familiarise yourself with parking signs and restrictions to ensure compliance and avoid any inconvenience or fines.

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.

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.

Car hire insurance in Pretoria

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Pretoria car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend being aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Pretoria.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a non-deductible option to your Pretoria car hire.
