There are great advantages to renting a car or minibus when visiting Australia. The biggest being the master of your own time and schedule on your travels seeing sights and exploring to your heart's content. Just some highlights of your trip could be:

The Australian Alps -spanning 2 states (Victoria and New South Wales) and covers an area of approximately 5 million hectares. It is an ideal location for those looking for year round outdoor activities and adventure.

The Sunshine and Gold Coasts offer good beach holidays and surfing. Kakadu (Northern Territory) is an area steeped in ancient Aboriginal culture, thriving nature and a variety of  landscapes and good fishing.

What would a visit to Australia be without a fishing trip off the coasts of this continent, which offers the best in game fishing or a visit to the Great Barrier Reef. 

Australia is highly urbanized with most of the population heavily concentrated along the eastern and south-eastern coasts. Most of the inland areas of the country are semi-arid. The most-populous states are Victoria and New South Wales, but by far the largest inland area is Western Australia.

Australia has an area of 7,682,300 square kilometres (2,966,152 sq mi) and the distances between cities and towns is easy to underestimate. Using coach or bus transport can be very tiring and restricting.

Long distance car rental in Australia is the best way to cover these vast distances, using rest stops overnight making pre-booked Australian Hotel Booking to break your journey at the convenient intervals and be refreshed.

If you want to make the most of your time in Australia, a multi-centred base approach is best, planning your tour from each base to the surrounding areas.

For example to fly from city to city. Land at Sydney Airport or Perth Airport, then rent a car to explore the delights and adventures that you will easily find from a local tourist information center, or pre-purchased Australian Travel Guide.  Then take a flight from Perth Airport to Cairns Airport, or Adelaide Airport to Cairns repeating the process. In this way to will maximise your time spent seeing Australia.

Speed and distance in Australia are measured in kilometres and kilometres per hour.

Australians drive on the left-hand side of the road. Most Australians live on the coast. Roads within and between the cities and major towns are generally reliable and in good condition, as are the main highways that join the state and territory capital cities.

Although highways between major cities are well-maintained, motorists may still travel for hundreds of kilometres between towns or road houses with limited opportunities to refuel, get water, refreshments, or use toilets.

Road conditions can be difficult in remote areas and the large and less populated areas in the middle of Australia (the "outback") where roads may not all be sealed and conditions affected by seasons.

When traveling in remote areas, away from sealed roads, where the potential to become stranded for up to a week without seeing another vehicle is very real, it is vital that you carry your own water supply (4 gallons or 7 litres per person per day).

Do not be misled by entries on maps such as 'well' or 'spring' or 'tank' (or any entry suggesting that there is a body of water). Nearly all are dry, and most inland lakes are dry salt pans.

In Australia car rental locations are to be found throughout the country, but the most convenient are Australia's Airport car hire desks for collecting your advance online bookings. Our CarTrawler search gives instant quotes from companies like Alamo, Avis, Budget, Europcar, Thrifty, Hertz and Red Spot.

Whether you are exploring Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park or the vastness of the Outback, Australia's beaches or diving the Barrier Reef, Australian car rental is essential to enjoy the expanse and variety of this country.

Whether you need a mini class car for the city and short trips, compact, economy, estate,SUV's, 7-seater hire in Australia or 9-seater rental, our CarTrawler rental car search engine will find the best deal for car rental in Australia.
