Location information for Australia

Australia is best explored by rental car. has over 216 pick-up locations in Australia. This means there is always a pick-up location close to your destination.

Australia is one of the most sought-after holiday spots in the world, and there is more land and diversity here than most travellers have time to digest. Known for its rugged landscape, unique wildlife and cosmopolitan cities, Australia is a land of open spaces that are best tackled with a cheap hire car.

Despite a strong reputation for its outdoors scene, Australia has several prosperous cities. Sydney is a vibrant hub for culture and the arts, headlined by Sydney Harbour Bridge and the iconic Opera House. Four million residents reside here in Australia's oldest city, and its infrastructure is second to none.

Brisbane is the pre-eminent resort destination of Australia. Once an industrial hub, this city was reborn into a lively tourist centre. The main attraction is the Gold Coast, a collection of upscale resorts fronted by the Great Barrier Reef. Scuba diving, café-hopping and world-class shopping are all on the agenda.

Other prominent cities in Australia are Melbourne, rich in colonial belle époque architecture; Alice Springs, where Aborigine traditions persist; and Perth, known for uncrowded beaches and a laid-back city centre with ample amenities. A hire car in Australia is practical for getting around specific cities in Australia, but the expansive distances between them are best travelled by air.

Away from the urban centres is a sprawling wilderness that lures adventurers with myriad sporting opportunities. Skiers are accommodated in Tasmania or South Wales; divers explore the Great Barrier, arguably the greatest underwater scene known to man; while rock climbers and mountain bikers enjoy countless venues nation-wide.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?
