Location information for Cairns

Often considered as the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, Cairns has always been a popular destination for tourists. This city is heavily geared towards tourism, so you can be sure that there are plenty of hotels, restaurants, pubs, and bars. In fact, no matter what your budget, you're sure to find something in Cairns that suits you.

Transportation

Just be sure to book car hire in Cairns, as the public transport system there can get rather confusing for travellers. You'll certainly save yourself from the hassle of trying to hail cabs or trying to catch buses. Indeed, it is only if you have your own set of wheels that you can fully enjoy a vacation in the beautiful city. You'll find that the car will be especially useful when you decide to go sightseeing around the city, especially in the city center. Also, when you want to visit the beaches, a car hire would certainly suit your purpose since Cairns itself has no beaches within the city, only in its outskirts.

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 CompareCarHire.co.uk 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?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
