Rental Car Australia

In Australia the stark colors reveal themselves like nowhere else: vivid blue skies meet cinnamon red earth, and vibrant green flora shares space with the wildest of fauna. Australia is an island continent and despite being the world’s sixth largest country, rivalling the USA in size, its population merely rivals that of Florida.

Nevertheless, the cultural diversity of its population is as varied as its landscapes, with aboriginal communities, historical settlers of all creeds and races and a sizeable international population, its melting-pot cities bursting with gastronomic adventure. The fact that Australia is the 18th most urbanized country in the world speaks for the eye-watering number of things to see and do in its distinctive cities.

HAPPYCAR is here to help you find the best car hire Australia has to offer so you can take full advantage of this dazzlingly diverse country, and while there are many airports dotted all over Australia, the majority of international travelers arrive first in Sydney. A direct car hire Sydney Airport is available from HAPPYCAR, along with all the major airports around the country. We check the prices of international and local providers so that you don’t have to check each website, and provide you with the best deals to make your money go further. Booking the cheapest car that fits all of your travel needs is easy with a car hire in Australia.

General Information

With aboriginal footprints dated back as far as 60,000 years and the first fleet of settlers arriving in 1788, Australia is both one of the oldest and newest countries in the world. The influx of immigrants throughout its history has ensured that the food culture is fantastically varied, with a multicultural fusion of European techniques and Pacific-rim ingredients.

The art of food and legendary beer and wine culture, exhibited meticulously and loudly by Australians also expresses itself through art, with theatre productions, live bands, lofty art galleries and movie launches coming in thick and fast in most cities.

The undiluted energy of the urban density is sometimes seen as a contrast to the ancient culture which surrounds it: epic geological features as bizarre as the wildlife helps to realign oneself to the admission that modern Australia is something of a marvel, and commands you to enjoy all it has to offer.

Using a car hire in Australia

Australia is dotted with cities and towns all over its vast, flat red land, and easily the best way to appreciate all of what Australia has to offer is with an Australia car hire. The conditions of the roads are almost all very good with highways all over, and outside of the big cities you can enjoy true cruising conditions with little traffic.

Off-road options are also plentiful, with national parks and secluded corners of the land making for the perfect opportunity to be surprised at the beauty of “the Lucky Country." A car for off-roading is easy with car hire Australia where you can filter for bigger cars and added protection. Be aware that you’re only likely to scrape the surface of this vast country.

In the cities themselves you are spoiled with choice: each state features a capital, and each is glowing with unique character. There is nowhere more glowing than New South Wales, with the cultural behemoth that is Sydney, and with a car rental Australia you can bear witness to it Opera House and Harbour Bridge. The artsy Melbourne rubs with the lively scene in Brisbane, and both are contrasted against the relaxed charm of Adelaide and the airy Perth in the west.

Far north, the Northern Territory is enlivened by the youthful Darwin, and over the water in the south lays its geographic polar opposite, Tasmania, with Hobart a shining example of maritime culture and English villages.

You can spend a lifetime in this vibrant country and not tire of what it has to offer. There is so much to see in this part of the world, and an Australia car rental can help you uncover some of the many mysteries just waiting to be discovered.
