Top tips for renting a car in Sydney

  • Excited to rent a car while you vacation in Sydney? If you are landing at Sydney Airport and are coming from abroad, then you will find the rental car desks in Terminal 1’s Arrival Hall. If you are arriving on a domestic flight, the rental car desks can be found in the Arrival Hall for Terminals 2 and 3.
  • As a tourist in Sydney, there’s no reason to be stuck relying on public transportation, if you rent a car the whole region becomes your oyster. For instance, Manly Beach, Blue Mountains National Park, and Royal National Park are just some of the famed locales surrounding Sydney that are easily accessible by car.
  • Travelers new to Australia should watch out for Transit Lanes. Transit Lanes, often designated as T2 or T3, are Australia’s equivalent to a carpool lane, meaning that you must have either 2 or 3 people in your car to use the lane. Transit Lanes are mostly seen on highways, and families should be sure to take advantage of them.
  • Sydney’s morning rush hour normally ranges from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. while the evening rush hour can start as early as 2:30 p.m. and will often last all the way till 7:00 p.m. The extended evening rush hour is due in part to the fact that many of Sydney’s roads are running at capacity. Two roads to avoid in particular during rush hour include Military Road and Parramatta Road, as both can slow to a crawl when experiencing traffic.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Sydney for C$ 29 or less
  • Book your rental car in Sydney at least 3 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Sydney are around 56% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • Sydney features mostly large streets that are suitable for a wide range of vehicle sizes. Drivers shouldn’t have any issues getting around, even if they choose a minivan or SUV. It is worth mentioning, though, that streetside parking is often necessary, and this will be done more easily in a small vehicle.

  • For the main urban areas in Sydney, drivers will see speed limits ranging from 30 km/h (18 mph) in mixed-use urban areas, 40 km/h (25 mph) in the central downtown area and in areas with high levels of pedestrian traffic, and up to 50 km/h (31 mph) on urban roads.

  • Australia has only moderately expensive fuel costs, especially in comparison to Europe. In general, drivers will find that gas costs around AU$4.82 ($3.50) per gallon in Sydney. One thing to note, though, is that gas will be purchased in liters, not gallons.

  • Parking in Sydney is not too difficult to find except in Sydney’s central business district. Sydney’s CBD has scarce streetside parking and, when it can be found, is quite expensive. The best option for parking in the CBD is to take advantage of one of the various parking garages and then to go out on foot and use public transport from there.
