Car hire in Australia for families

Australia is the land of ‘road trippin’. Get ‘off the beaten’ track in a 4WD and discover ancient landscapes. We have many years of experience designing holidays that take in the unique contrasts of Australia. Without the need to visit every ‘highlight’ as promoted in the well-known guide books.

The question is ‘what size car suits you?’ Compact, Medium or Large. We can help you make this decision.

What size car would you like to travel with?

Select information that matches you

A medium SVU offers good fuel efficiency with more space for you and your family. And your luggage. Our cars have extra ground clearance, so you can travel along gravel roads and enjoy the views. An ideal car for a family. Along the way, stop for a picnic at the beach.

By taking into account the size of Australia, you may also need to consider taking a domestic flight or two. This means you can see more and drive less. Each flight is a few hours. And it means you will be able to tick off some of Australia’s best highlights and hidden gems at a relaxed pace.

Drive easy with full insurance. Our hire cars are less than 6 months old, are well equipped and are well suited to Australia’s roads. A relaxed travel pace. No rushing or hopping from highlight to highlight. Go where the locals go.

Our hire cars include insurance with $0 excess as standard. Please note: there are other insurance limitations to consider.
