Location information for Australia

Australia is best explored by rental car. has over 279 pick-up locations in Australia. This means there is always a pick-up location close to your destination.

A trove of cosmopolitan cities, vibrant culture and rugged outdoor scenes, Australia is a country the size of a continent with the kind of open spaces that demand a cheap hire car. There is more to see and do than a single visit permits, and visitors will find more opportunity for outdoor adventures, cultural interaction and world-class entertainment than the average holiday provides.

The ‘Harbour City' is home to Australia's most iconic structure, the Opera House. Sydney has much more to offer, from fine dining venues and heady nightclubs to expansive beaches and national parks. Visitors will be glad to have a hire car in Australia as the metropolitan area of Sydney covers a great deal of ground.

With so much open space, travelling between Australia's major cities requires plenty of driving. Closest to Sydney is Canberra (3 hours by cheap Australia hire car), followed by Melbourne and Brisbane (around 10 hours in opposite directions). The latter is known for the Great Barrier Reef and the exclusive resorts of the Gold Coast.

The only way to do a holiday in Australia justice is to spend a great deal of time here, or to return in future instalments. Visitors can enjoy the belle époque architecture of Melbourne's colonial districts or sink into the Aborigine museums of Alice Springs. To escape the crowds and enjoy the beach, head straight for Perth.

Beyond its urban appeal, Australia offers unparalleled natural appeal. Tourists can explore the Great Barrier Reef with a scuba tank or a simple snorkel and mask. Meanwhile skiers can brave the slopes of Tasmania and adrenaline junkies can go skydiving, bungee jumping, rock climbing or mountain biking at countless locations across the continent.

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.
