Cars & Driving in Australia
Car HireMost new arrivals will hire a car when they first arrive.
If you're not being picked up from the airport you can:
- Arrange to pick up a car from the airport
- Get a taxi to another car hire firm around the city
- Get a taxi to your accommodation and arrange car hire later
Your choice will depend on how confident you are about driving as soon as you arrive. Most Australian cities are not busy by UK standards, but after a long flight and probably not knowing directions, you may not feel up to it.
