Location information for Emerald Airport

Emerald Airport car hire

Located in Queensland's Central Highlands district, Emerald Airport lies six kilometres south of the town of Emerald. Qantas Link handles all flights to and from the airport, with flights to Brisbane scheduled five times daily during the week and three times daily at weekends. The town is fairly isolated so car rental in Emerald Airport is a popular choice.

Emerald Airport facilities

The airport has a public car park. Several car rental companies operate inside the airport's rental building, enabling travellers to compare car hire either before or on arrival. There is a kiosk which provides light refreshments that is open just before and after flights.

Emerald Airport excursions

The town is easily accessible from the airport by heading north on the A7. In Emerald, the Botanic Gardens offer a pleasant place to stroll around, while the Gemfields area nearby is home to the small towns of Rubyvale and Sapphire, named after their gems found here. The area's sapphire fields are the Southern Hemisphere's largest.

Best time to visit

Emerald has a tropical climate and experiences dry and wet seasons. The weather is hottest between November and March, with temperatures regularly hitting the mid-30s (°C). December to February experiences the most rainfall, while July is the coolest and driest month. April, May, September and October have comfortable temperatures and minimal rainfall, and are generally good times to visit.

Car rental in Emerald Airport

There is a decent choice of car hire in Emerald Airport, with the best way to arrange car rental being prior to arrival. Hiring a car is by far the most convenient way to navigate the area as distances between towns are far and public transport is irregular. Driving conditions are good, with local drivers mostly adhering to the rules of the road.

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?

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).
