Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Sydney car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Sydney.
Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Sydney car rental.

Sydney features mostly large streets that are suitable for a wide range of vehicle sizes. Drivers shouldn’t have any issues getting around, even if they choose a minivan or SUV. It is worth mentioning, though, that streetside parking is often necessary, and this will be done more easily in a small vehicle.
For the main urban areas in Sydney, drivers will see speed limits ranging from 30 km/h (18 mph) in mixed-use urban areas, 40 km/h (25 mph) in the central downtown area and in areas with high levels of pedestrian traffic, and up to 50 km/h (31 mph) on urban roads.
Australia has only moderately expensive fuel costs, especially in comparison to Europe. In general, drivers will find that petrol costs around AU$4.82 ($3.50) per gallon in Sydney. One thing to note, though, is that petrol will be purchased in liters, not gallons.
Parking in Sydney is not too difficult to find except in Sydney’s central business district. Sydney’s CBD has scarce streetside parking and, when it can be found, is quite expensive. The best option for parking in the CBD is to take advantage of one of the various parking garages and then to go out on foot and use public transport from there.
