KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Potchefstroom

  • With car hire in Potchefstroom, you have the flexibility to visit popular attractions, such as the Potchefstroom Museum and the beautiful MooiRivier Mall, at your own pace. A car allows you to easily venture outside the city to explore the Vredefort Dome, a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its impact crater. Additionally, having a car gives you the freedom to experience the stunning landscapes and charming towns in the North West Province, such as Magaliesburg and Klerksdorp. Enjoy the convenience and independent travel opportunity with Potchefstroom car hire.
  • When getting a hire car at the airport in Potchefstroom, you'll find car hire offices conveniently located at O.R. Tambo International Airport (JNB) in Johannesburg. The car hire offices are in the arrivals area of both Terminal A and Terminal B. There are no dedicated car hire offices at the Potchefstroom Airport (PCF). However, transfers are available to reach Potchefstroom from this smaller airport. To ensure a smooth arrival and departure, book car hire in Potchefstroom in advance online and arrange any necessary transfers accordingly.
  • When driving in Potchefstroom, be aware of pedestrians, especially near the university campus and busy areas like the central business district. Students and locals often walk or cycle, so exercise caution and be prepared for unexpected crossings. Additionally, the city centre has narrow streets and limited parking spaces. It is advisable to drive attentively and park in designated areas. While driving through residential neighbourhoods, watch out for speed bumps and potentially slower-moving vehicles.
  • When driving in Potchefstroom, be mindful of rush hours, which typically occur from 07:30 to 09:00 and from 16:30 to 18:00 on weekdays. During these times, the N12 highway and busy routes leading to the city centre, such as Govan Mbeki Drive, may experience heavier traffic congestion. While Potchefstroom does not face significant difficulties in terms of weather conditions, it's still important to exercise caution during the rainy season, when roads may become slick.
