Car rental insurance in Hobart

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Hobart car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Hobart.

Deductible

Top tips for renting a car in Hobart

  • It is highly advantageous to rent a car in Hobart as the public transportation in the city is somewhat limited. The main form of transit available is the public bus, but for groups or families visiting Hobart this likely won’t be as efficient or comfortable as a rental car. Also, if you plan on visiting any of the neighboring attractions such as Wellington Park (21 km or 13 miles away), it is often cheaper to drive there yourself rather than joining a tour.
  • Looking to pick up a rental car upon landing in Hobart so you can begin your Tasmanian journey? If your flight is arriving at Hobart International Airport, you will find all the airport’s various rental car counters located in the Arrivals section of the airport.
  • Driving in Hobart is a simple and easy affair for the most part, but there is one thing to remember when heading out onto the roads outside the city -- namely, the winding roads. Many of the roads and highways can be surprisingly curvy as they move up and down the hills, so caution is advised. This is especially the case in difficult weather conditions such as rain or snow.
  • Rush hour in Hobart starts off in the morning around 6:30 a.m. and lasts until 9:00 a.m. throughout the work week. The afternoon traffic picks up around 4:00 p.m. and finishes shortly after 6:00 p.m. Most of the streets don’t feature too much congestion but Davey Street is one to avoid if possible.
