Location information for Sydney

Sydney, the Harbour City, is Australia's oldest and most diverse urban centre, with the perfect blend of outdoor lifestyle, performing arts, sporting events and engaging entertainment. From its city beaches to its vibrant downtown neighbourhoods, this cosmopolitan destination rarely fails to impress, and with car hire in Sydney, you can move about with ease.

Sydney attractions

The water is an essential feature of Sydney, with many of its top attractions located in Darling Harbour, The Rocks and around the Sydney Opera House. Downtown areas like Macquarie Street are loaded with historic highlights that give way to cool cafés, bars and boutiques. The Royal Botanic Gardens and a host of excellent and free museums add to the mix.

Sydney excursions

The options for daytrips are endless with car rental in Sydney. Tour the wineries of the Hunter Valley, surf at Bondi Beach or hike in the luscious Blue Mountains. This is a fanatically outdoor city, with superb parks, beaches and walking paths all around the area so you don't have to travel far.

Best time to visit

Great weather is the norm in Sydney. Its seasons are opposite from Europe, so come from September to December for the warmest temperatures and the sunniest skies. Autumn and winter, between February and June, are still nice and warm but rather rainy. Conditions dry up a bit in July and August, which boast pleasantly cool days.

Car rental in Sydney

Sydney is a massive city, so having car rental in Sydney can help to reach attractions quickly and conveniently. Traffic is reasonable in and around the city, though parking prices downtown are expensive. With many international car rental firms on offer, it's best to compare car hire offers online first to secure the lowest rates available.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
