Tips for hiring a car in Pretoria

Browse helpful tips for hiring a car in Pretoria including age restrictions, car type suggestions and more. Tips were last updated on 19 June 2024.
  • With car hire in Pretoria, you will benefit from having enhanced flexibility to explore a range of nearby locations. You can travel directly to a range of destinations and also on your own schedule, which isn’t always the case with public transport. For instance, you can drive to Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve, a great location for hiking and biking, in about 1h 10min. This journey isn't possible using public transport, so you'd have to use a taxi. Alternatively, you can reach the nearby city of Johannesburg in about 50min. Whilst it's slightly faster to use a train for this trip, you would have to abide by the set timetable.
  • Drivers must be at least 18 years old in order to hire a car in Pretoria. Many car hire agencies also require you to have held your licence for a minimum of one year. Drivers under the age of 25 are likely to be subject to a surcharge, whilst many agencies also have age restrictions on car hire categories. It’s always recommended that you contact your car hire agency before booking to find out their exact policies.
  • If you are landing at Pretoria Wonderboom Airport (PRY), you will find lots of car hire companies to choose from. Once you have landed, passed through immigration and collected your luggage, you will need to take a short shuttle to the car hire agencies. You can find this outside the arrivals halland only takes a few minutes to reach popular branches, such as Europcar. The shuttle runs frequently throughout the day, so you won’t have to wait for long.
  • It is possible to drive your car across borders to nearby countries; however, this is only permitted by some agencies. For instance, many visitors like to cross into nearby countries, such as Swaziland and Botswana. It’s important that you check with your individual car hire company before you do so, as you’d require a letter of authority to cross the border. Failure to do this will result in your insurance policy becoming void. There is normally an additional charge from your car hire company to cross a border.

Car hire FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car hires in Pretoria, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on 19 June 2024.
  • Are the roads in good condition in Pretoria?

    The roads in and around the city tend to be well-maintained and in good condition. The surface of the motorways is also generally smooth with only a few imperfections. Motorways are also quite spacious, which makes driving on them an enjoyable experience. When you venture out into the countryside, you will find the quality of the roads decreases; don’t be surprised to come across potholes and damage. Should you want to drive on an off-road dirt track, then you should assess the situation before proceeding. The terrain can get quite poor, so make sure that your car is up to the job beforehand. It is also recommended that you have a GPS app on your phone to ensure that you don’t get lost.

  • What documents do I need when I hire a car in Pretoria?

    You will need to have a valid driving licence and a form of photographic ID, such as a passport, to hire a car in this city.

You will also need a valid credit card that’s in the main driver’s name.
