Top Tips for Renting a Convertible Car in Cairns

  • With its tropical atmosphere and palm-tree-lined streets, Cairns welcomes you to explore it in a convertible car. Hire a Cairns convertible car hire to check out the city’s touristy environment flexibly. Among the sites you can visit is the Cairns Esplanade, an ideal spot to watch the sunset or sunrise. It generally takes less than 5min to drive from the city centre to the Esplanade. If you live for the outdoors, Cairns Botanic Gardens is an excellent place to sample Australia’s most exotic plants. While buses take about 30min to get to the garden, driving requires approximately only 5min. Before leaving Cairns, drive your convertible car to Palm Cove. The roughly 30min drive is therapeutic and leads to the city’s most gorgeous beaches.
  • If flying to Cairns, your destination airport will be Cairns Airport (CNS). The facility is a great place to hire a car and be on your way to exploring the city. The car hire centre operates in the arrivals hall of both Terminal 1 for international arrivals and Terminal 2 for domestic arrivals. Over a dozen Cairns convertible car hire companies are in the airport, including Avis, Europcar, Budget, Thrifty, Redspot, Enterprise and many more. If you reserve a vehicle through KAYAK, you will find the car at the pick-up spot outside Terminals 1 and 2. Advance bookings are advantageous, as they allow discounts and save time.
  • You can be sure to create long-lasting memories as you drive through Cairns’s coastal or rainforest roads. Some of the challenges you can expect include winding pathways. Of course, you will be fine if you maintain a speed you are comfortable with. If cruising with a Cairns convertible car hire in the city centre, beware of cyclists. The cycling culture of Cairns is huge, and riders have the right of way. Also, roundabouts in central Cairns are huge and challenging to navigate. If exploring the outskirts, be keen, as kangaroos may suddenly cross the road.
  • Traffic in Cairns remains light throughout the day. However, it is common for roads to clog when an accident occurs. Due to the city’s winding streets and numerous roundabouts, collisions occur when it rains. Thus, avoid cruising while there is rainfall. As for the rush hours, Cairns experiences some traffic jams from 07:00 to 09:00 and 16:00 to 18:00. Notably, the traffic build-up is light and a situation any driver can handle. You may delay for about 20min if driving on the Bruce Highway around these times.

FAQs About Renting a Convertible Car in Cairns

  • Which is a reliable convertible car to hire in Cairns?

    You can introduce class, luxury and comfort to your trip by hiring a reliable vehicle from the Cairns convertible car hire companies. Among the vehicles you can consider is the Mercedes Benz SLK. The car is ideal for those travelling in a pair and with a suitcase or two. If touring in larger groups, the BMW 3 convertible, which accommodates four adults, is an excellent alternative.

  • What is the speed limit in Cairns?

    The roads in Cairns feature well-displayed signposts showing the required speed. In most residential areas and the city centre, the speed limit is 50 kph. Highways allow up to 110 kph. Note that the traffic police in Cairns are strict regarding roads, and not noticing a speed sign is no excuse.

  • Where can I park a convertible car in Cairns?

    Since Cairn’s weather can get hot in summer, it is a good idea to park your convertible car in the shade. Thus, leaving your vehicle in car parks, such as the multi-storey park on Lake Street, is advisable. The facility is about a 2min walk from the city centre. Of course, you can park in the city centre streets for a small fee if you are not leaving your car for too long.  

  • How does KAYAK find such low convertible car rental prices?

    KAYAK compares convertible car rental prices from all major car rental companies such as Thrifty, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, Payless and more to find you the best deal.

Arrived prior to our 10am pick up on 14/6/23 and were told there was no booking. When I showed the confirmation email, I was told that the booking had been cancelled, in spite of it being booked 10 days earlier and the email had said accepted by Eurocar. Had to quickly look around other car rental companies and had to settle for a more expensive older car that we had to walk much further from hotel to pick up and return. Not sure who was at fault her, Kayak, Expedia or Eurocar but will have to seriously re-consider whether I'll use any of these companies going forward.
