Location information for Sydney

Car hire in Sydney

When people think of Australia, they immediately conjure up an image of the iconic city of Sydney. Home to notable buildings such as the Opera House, legendary nightlife and dining venues, and some of the finest beaches on the planet, Sydney sees an average of eight million tourists every year. The central area of the city can be explored on foot, but those looking to get the most of the surrounding regions of New South Wales should organise car rental. Drivers can compare cheap car hire in Sydney here with us for the best deals.

Why visit

Sydney is a cosmopolitan city with plenty of activities and sights to suit all tastes and age groups. In the centre, the George Street shops, the buskers on Circular Quay and the Hyde Park Barracks are among attractions. On the coast, Bondi Beach is around eight kilometres east and, on the north shore of Sydney Harbour, golden sands stretch all the way up north of Manly. Inland, the neighbourhood of Parramatta features heritage architecture and the Lancer Barracks Museum.

Transport

Sydney Airport is located at Botany Bay, around 10kms from the central district, and is the principal arrival point for international visitors. Buses and suburban trains reach most parts of the city, but exploring with car rental in Sydney is easy, as roads outside the centre are not busy. A cruise around the harbour is an essential activity for most tourists. From Circular Quay, there are scheduled passenger ferries to around 30 piers on Sydney Harbour.

What to see and do

Sydney is on Highway 1, which follows the coast all the way around Australia. Drivers using Sydney car hire are able to follow the road north, past Dharug National Park and up to the city of Newcastle. Dharug boasts spectacular terrain and the opportunity of glimpsing species such as wallabies and wallaroos. Newcastle is an exciting place with numerous annual events, including a popular jazz festival in August. The Blue Mountains, rising west of Sydney, are packed with historic sites, mines and activity centres.

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?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

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).
