Top Tips for Renting a Van in Cairns

  • Cairns van rentals come in various sizes, making them suitable for different group sizes and travel needs. Whether you're traveling with family, friends, or a group, you can find a van that accommodates everyone comfortably. Renting a van can be cost-effective, especially for groups. It can be more economical than renting multiple smaller vehicles and can help you save on fuel costs. Vans typically offer spacious and comfortable interiors, ensuring a comfortable ride for passengers during long journeys.
  • Passengers who are looking for an easy place to get Cairns van rentals should visit Cairns Airport (CNS). There is a wide range of car rental options available for both international and domestic travelers. You can find car rental counters for the six or so car rental companies operating at the airport conveniently located in the Arrivals Hall of both T1 and T2. Car rental return parking areas are situated at both terminals and offer easy signage to find the appropriate spot for your rental company.
  • In Australia, you drive on the left-hand side of the road in Cairns van rentals, and the steering wheel is on the right-hand side of the vehicle. Seat belts are mandatory for all occupants in the vehicle, including passengers in the back seat. Using a mobile phone while driving without a hands-free system is illegal and can result in fines. Be cautious of wildlife, especially in rural and remote areas. Animals, such as kangaroos and wallabies, can unexpectedly cross the road.
  • The morning rush hour in Cairns typically occurs between 7 am and 9 am on weekdays. The afternoon rush hour usually takes place between 4 pm and 6 pm on weekdays. These times cause increased congestion on the roads. Cairns is a popular tourist destination, and certain areas, such as the Esplanade and the Cairns CBD (Central Business District), can become crowded with tourists and vehicles, especially during the high tourist season. When cruise ships dock at the Cairns Cruise Liner Terminal, there can be an influx of tourists and increased traffic in the surrounding area.
  • 25% of our users found a van rental in Cairns for C$ 198 or less
  • Book your van rental in Cairns at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • February is typically the cheapest month to rent a van in Cairns, with prices around C$ 59 per day. The most expensive month is December, with average prices of C$ 94 per day.

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.
