Top tips for renting a car in Tasmania

  • Driving is a lot of fun, but you need to be sure you stick to the posted speed limits at all times. In accordance with the rest of the Australian regions, the posted speed limits in Tasmania are denoted in kilometers per hour. The maximum allowed speed for motorists in urban areas is 50 km/h (30 mph). On highways, the maximum speed restriction is 110 km/h (70 mph), however, the maximum speed limit on rural roads is 100 km/h (60 mph).
  • Tasmania's roads, especially in the countryside and on the mountains, are known for their twists and turns. It is to be expected that there are some roads with only one lane or cross bridges with only one lane. On these small or winding roads, you should slow down and give plenty of warning before passing another vehicle. The motorist nearest to the bridge always has the right of way on a narrow bridge, and you should always give way to vehicles traveling uphill.
  • It does not matter where a passenger is seated in a vehicle; they are required to wear their seatbelts at all times. Children under the age of 12 are required to have a child safety seat or booster seat installed; if you do not have one, your automobile rental company will provide one for you at an extra cost. Children are required to be restrained in a device that is appropriate for their age, height, and weight.
  • In Tasmania, you may easily find a parking spot right on the street. Whenever you pull into a parking spot on the street, the clock starts ticking on the time limit displayed on the parking sign. So, if you see a sign that says "1P," it means you can only park there for one hour. Every Australian jurisdiction adopts this minimum requirement. Pay parking meters in Tasmanian CBD cost an average of $3.74 per hour. The metered parking hours are from 8 am to 8 pm, after which parking is free in these on-street parking bays.

  • Should I rent an automobile in Tasmania?

    On this Island, renting a car might provide you with a number of advantages. Renting a car gives you the independence to visit places like Mona and Cataract Gorge Reserve, two of Tasmania's most popular tourist destinations. Tasmania has excellent public transportation, but the tight schedules of the buses and trains prevent visitors from having the flexibility they need to fully experience the island state. There are plenty of automobile rental agencies, so you can easily pick one that offers a vehicle that works with your schedule and budget. At the end of the day, a rental automobile offers convenience and comfort that public transportation cannot.

  • What's it like to drive on Tasmanian roads?

    In Tasmania, as in the rest of Australia, drivers must remain in the left lane at all times; the right lane may only be used for passing. If you are approaching a roundabout in Tasmania, then the standard protocol dictates that you must yield to any and all vehicles that are coming from the right. Do not go behind the wheel with a blood alcohol content over the legal limit of 50 milligrams per 100 milliliters. Even when crossing in locations not marked for pedestrian traffic, you should always yield to pedestrians, school buses, and emergency vehicles with flashing lights.

  • What is the minimum age requirement to rent a car in Tasmania?

    If you want to rent a car in Tasmania, you need to be at least 21 years old. If you are under the age of 25, the majority of car providers will charge you an additional fee each day for being a young driver, and you will not be able to rent certain vehicle classes, such as full-size, full-size SUVs, compact SUVs, minivans, or luxury automobiles. Before you can hire a car in Tasmania, you need to make sure you have the minimum age, a valid driving license, proof of insurance, and a credit card for the deposit. If you meet these requirements, you will be able to rent a car.
