Which airports can I hire a car at?

We’re here to help you, no matter which part of Australia you’re in. The list of Australian airports we cover is comprehensive and includes:

Brisbane Airport – Head to Brisbane and start exploring the beautiful capital of Queensland. Close to both the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, Brisbane is also just a stone’s throw away from Bribie Island National Park. Swimming, cycling or taking a walk along lush sands, can all be enjoyed here.

Melbourne Airport – Formula One fans should know Melbourne very well. It’s usually the opening race of the new season and always throws up some great racing. The capital of Victoria State, Melbourne offers a wide variety of sights and attractions to explore whilst Down Under.

Sydney Airport – Always a glorious sight on New Year’s Eve, Sydney is a sightseer’s paradise. There’s the world renowned Sydney Opera House to visit, or the Harbour Bridge, which dominates the harbour skyline. Head to Taronga Zoo to see a collection of unique wildlife. Here, you’ll also enjoy some of the best views over Sydney and its peaceful harbour.

Canberra Airport – Many forget Canberra is the capital city of Australia. There are some fantastic galleries and museums if you want to brush up on your culture. There are also some wonderful restaurants where you can sample the finest Australian cuisine. The Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve is a must-see whilst the surrounding mountains hold a special place in the hearts of Australia’s Aboriginal people.

We also provide car hire in locations such as Surfers Paradise, Adelaide Airport, Port Douglas, and Launceston.

What to see in Australia

If you’re planning a road trip, you’ve come to the right place. Australia’s vastness, remote areas, and spectacular scenery provides the perfect opportunity for the trip of a lifetime.

You could hit the road and explore Australia’s gorgeous and varied coastline. From bright coral reefs on the west coast, to the cliffs of the east, you’re bound to find something to take your breath away. Drive along Queensland’s Sunshine Coast or work your way round Tasmania’s beautiful and unspoilt coastline.

If you’d prefer to marvel at the contrasting landscapes, visit New South Wales’ vineyards and take a balloon trip over this gorgeous landscape. Alternatively, head inland towards the Outback and explore the real Australia. Just make sure you avoid some of the continent's more dangerous residents.
