Car Hire

Tasmania offers a wide range of car rental options from the budget ‘rent-a-bomb’ type options, through to sports, performance and luxury options. A small hatch or sedan is perfect for couples or younger families when visiting Tasmania. A small car hire will generally suit up to 4 people and provides cheap travel for the budget-conscious Tassie holidaymaker. Suitable for city sightseeing tours and day trips, the small class may be manual or automatic, a compact trendy vehicle for couples on the move.


For the larger family, a business traveller or group you will find larger 4 door 6-cylinder sedans or maybe even a minibus or minivan. Vehicles will range from new models to cars up to 5 years of age or older –  mainly automatic and have air conditioning, power steering and CD Player. Rental cars in Tasmania, for the most part, are kept in good condition, regularly serviced and easy to drive. GPS’s can be hired as an extra.

The choice of car hire in Tasmania could make or break your holiday. Consider your luggage requirements, the number of passengers, and your budget. Also consider getting a comfortable car if you’re going to travel long distances in Tasmania, noting that many of our roads in Tassie can be demanding. Each category comes with a recommendation about suitable uses and details of passenger capacity, storage space and vehicle features.
