Top tips for hiring a car in New South Wales

  • When you pick up your hire vehicle, a provider will usually request you provide a credit card. Alternatively, another applicable option is a debit card, but this can change depending on your provider. You will be charged a deposit in case of accidental damage that may occur to the vehicle whilst it’s in your possession. A driver will not be able to pay with cash or cheque deposits, only cards.
  • Drivers who are intending to hire a vehicle whilst they are in New South Wales will find that they have to bring certain and specific documentation with them before they can successfully drive away with a vehicle. At the time of pick-up, a driver must always show either a full driver licence in English or an Australian green P-plate licence. It is usually requested that this has been valid for at least 12 months. A driver must also generally show that their passport is valid throughout the duration of their car hire. Providers might differ in their requests, so it’s best to check beforehand.
  • New South Wales are very strict on their drink and drive limit, so all drivers must make sure to abide by all of the rules. A driver must never get behind the wheel when they have consumed more than the recommended maximum beverage count. The current limit states that a driver can never have a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) level of more than 0.05 gr per every 100ml of blood. Factors such as your age, body size, weight and gender, can influence this rate, so it’s best to avoid drinking and driving altogether.

FAQs about hiring a car in New South Wales

  • Should I hire a car in New South Wales?

    Whilst there is a network of public transport options in New South Wales, like buses and trams, they run at a limited service and aren’t as reliable compared with the freedom of a hire vehicle. Hiring a vehicle throughout your stay means that you are faced with no restrictions and can explore everything that New South Wales has to offer, without the delay or unreliability of public transport. Enjoy some of the top attractions, sights and landmarks, such as Sydney Opera House, Bondi Beach, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Taronga Zoo Sydney, Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, Darling Harbour, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney Tower Eye, Port Jackson Bay along with many more.

  • What is driving like in New South Wales?

    Driving in New South Wales isn’t too different to driving around the UK, meaning that driving is simple for either those who are new to the driving scene or are experienced. All vehicles have a steering wheel located on the right-hand side, meaning that all drivers must drive on the left-hand side of the road. Driving conditions are suitable for any kind of travel, with their vast open roads and good quality surfaces, but speed limits can differ on certain road types. If you’re in built-up residential areas, then you can generally expect a maximum limit of 50 km/h (31 mph), and there’s usually a limit of 100 km/h (62 mph) in rural areas. A driver must always drive at an appropriate driving speed, even if it is not clearly signposted.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in New South Wales?

Drivers are expected to have held their licence for a minimum of 12 months and have either a full driver licence (with an English translation if applicable).
