Pretoria Airport Car Hire

Pretoria is that rare thing - a big city with a quiet, peaceful vibe. With a raft of things to see and do, you'll need a hire car from the airport to get around.

Pretoria is known as the 'Jacaranda City' after the abundance of the purple-leaved trees that line its streets. However, there is much more to this alluring South African city than beautiful trees. The town is one awash in history, with buildings that date back centuries, museums aplenty to tell its story and intriguing attractions for young and old alike. Getting around the city is particularly easy and efficient if you have a car, so it's really worth your while renting one from Pretoria airport - and with DriveNow, you'll get the best deal possible.

Wonderboom Airport, to give Pretoria’s airport its official title, is found just to the north of the city. It acts as the gateway to the north of the country, so get set for the adventure of a lifetime when you touch down in Pretoria.

Wonderboom Airport

Named for the nearby farm, Wonderboom Airport is pretty small when compared to the size of the city of which it serves. It's an old airport, opening way back in 1937, but it is continually being upgraded. Today, it’s one of the most modern airports in South Africa, with a runway just under two kilometres in length and able to accommodate the largest commercial airliners on the planet. Wonderboom Airport is able to process 450 departing passengers an hour, as well as 400 incoming.

It's around a 30 minute drive along the M5 into the city centre, and you can choose from a range of reputable car hire firms including Budget, Europcar, Keddy and Avis to get yourself around. You can book with DriveNow from the comfort of your own home, so your vehicle will be ready and waiting for you when you land.
