Car rental location Parkes Airport

Location information for Parkes Airport

Parkes Airport car hire

Serving just over 30,000 passengers per year, Parkes Airport ranks as having one of the lowest passenger throughput figures of any airport in Australia. As Parkes is fairly accessible by car from both Canberra and Sydney, many travelers choose to drive these popular routes rather than fly. Yet Regional Express runs services to Sydney from Parkes. Car rental in Parkes Airport is the best way to reach the centre of the city, which is five miles away.

Parkes Airport facilities

This New South Wales airport is among the smallest in the country, with just a car park, a small terminal building and little else besides. There is seating for those waiting to depart within the main building. Car hire in Parkes Airport can easily be arranged online so that there is a vehicle waiting for you on arrival.

Parkes Airport excursions

Orange Road, or Highway 90, connects the airport to the centre of Parkes, where there are numerous attractions for visitors. There is a central statue dedicated to Sir Henry Parkes, considered one of the fathers of modern Australia, a golf club and a wealth of attractive green spaces that are ideal for picnics. But perhaps the biggest draw is the Parkes Observatory, 20kms to the north of town.

Best time to visit

December, January and February are the hottest months of the year but they are not unbearable, with temperatures hovering around 30°C. The best time to make a trip here is during April, when temperatures are a pleasant 24°C and rainfall is at its lowest. June and July can get a bit chilly, especially at night.

Car rental in Parkes Airport

Newell Highway and Clarinda Street intersect in the centre of Parkes, providing good traffic flow. Rush hours get a little busy but hardly ever to the extent that there is serious congestion. Connecting with other New South Wales towns is easy via well-maintained highways. Compare car hire online ahead of departure to Parkes for the most competitive deals.

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).
