Location information for Port Hedland Airport


Port Hedland Airport car hire

Serving the busiest sea port in Australia, Port Hedland Airport is a major Western Australian transport hub for mining industry and port workers, with more than 250,000 passengers passing through the airport every year. From here, there are connections to Darwin, Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane and Denpasar in Indonesia. Qantas, Skywest Airlines, Strategic Airlines and Virgin Australia all fly here. Car hire in Port Hedland Airport is the most convenient way to drive the eight-mile journey to the centre of the town or the six miles to South Hedland, the main residential area.


Port Hedland Airport facilities

There is a sizeable car park outside the main terminal building which was extended in 2011 as part of a major upgrade to facilities. This project saw the expansion of the Domestic and International Arrivals and Departures areas. There is now more seating. Other amenities include a baggage claim area and a café. Car rental can be arranged through a selection of companies.


Port Hedland Airport excursions

Highway 1 connects Port Hedland Airport to South Hedland, while Wilson Street links to the port. The coastal area is green, with a peninsula that stretches out into the ocean. There is also a racecourse near here that holds regular horse racing meets. The main shopping centre is in South Hedland. The Black Rock Stakes is a 70-mile race from Whim Creek to Port Hedland, in which competitors push wheelbarrows filled with iron ore each June.


Best time to visit

Port Hedland is among the hottest places in the whole of Australia, with temperatures that regularly climb above 35°C and even to 40°C from October to April. The only real respite comes in June and July, when it remains hot but manageable in the day and considerably cooler in the evenings. These are also the driest months, meaning the winter is the best time to come.


Car rental in Port Hedland Airport

Most of the traffic in Port Hedland is headed for the port so Wilson Street can get busy on occasions. But, generally, the traffic flow is light and Highway 1 is more than capable of handling the local volume of traffic. The highways that connect locations across the state are in good condition but drivers should ensure they are well prepared in case of breakdown.

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).
