Wonderboom is a little outside of downtown Pretoria, so there's a good chance you'll be doing a fair bit of driving. If you are thinking of using Wonderboom as a starting point to explore the city and its surrounds, rent a smaller set of wheels. There's nothing like a compact vehicle for maneuvering into those tiny downtown parking spots. Alternatively, if you're heading away from the bright lights and traffic, book something with a stronger engine and more legroom. Not many travelers regret spending that little bit extra on a premium or a full-size car.
Sometimes it's all about the journey, which makes your car choice important. If you're about to embark on an epic road trip around Wonderboom, a robust and stylish SUV could be a good choice. If you want the cheapest price possible and plan on staying mostly in the city, a budget compact is a smart pick. All you have to do is choose what'll suit you best, load up the car, and hit the highway.
