FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

Darwin Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Darwin

Tropical Darwin is one of the most fast-growing cities in all of Australia, and home to around seventy ethnic backgrounds. Nature is truly a part of Darwin’s backyard, and you’ll find yourself riddles with choice no matter how long you stay for. HAPPYCAR is here to help you find the best car hire Darwin has to offer so you can take full advantage of this youthful city, and our rentals are all available straight from Darwin Airport. We check the prices of international and local providers so that you don’t have to check each website to provide you with the best deals on a car hire to make your money go further on a rental car that fits your specific needs. You have the options of choosing car size, pick up location and type of insurance to ensure you get the best deal on a great car hire!

General Information

While Darwin’s days as a languid frontier town are long behind them, it still remains a relaxed, modern city, an important international gateway to Asia and a proud guardian of the Top End of Australia. Its special climate allows for pristine beaches and lush parks, and an aboriginal flavor is still very much felt in the Darwin community. Much of Darwin now revolves around its new revitalized waterfront, lined with shops, eateries, lagoons and parklands, and tourists and locals alike blend together to create a sizzling multicultural hotpot of activity.

To Do

Things tend to happen outside in Darwin, and there is something to do around every corner. The waterfront is perfect for swimming or discovering the city’s history on walking tours around Cullen Bay Marina, or you can check out some popular aboriginal art galleries in the inner city. A must-see is the Museum & Art Gallery of the Northern Territory where you can see some exquisite aboriginal collections from the Tiwi Islands, and you can also learn more about the devastating Cyclone Tracy, which prompted an entire rebuild of Darwin in 1974. An unforgettable experience is to be had at the Darwin Film Society, in which they hold a deckchair cinema outside under the starry sky.

Attractions

Around Mitchell St you will find the Asian-colonial inspired architecture of Parliament House, where you can tour the interior and pop into the Northern Territory Library. For kids and adults alike, the hugely popular Wave Lagoon is a big hit, where you can surf 10 different wave patterns, or simply take a stroll down the Recreation Lagoon. For your fill of the local wildlife, especially crocodiles, head out to Crocodylus Park, to see a frightening feeding demonstration and head to a mini-zoo there to see big cats, spider monkeys and marmosets.

Eating

The waterfront is a great starting place for a relaxed introduction to Darwin’s culinary variety, and there is no better example than the Mindil Beach Sunset Market, a Darwin institution where you can pick up some satay or feast on just-caught seafood with a backdrop of the gorgeous Tiwi Island. Try some tom yum soup or even some crocodile or buffalo. Darwin is closer to the capital of Indonesia than it is to the capital of Australia, and a veritable feast of South-east Asian options is on the menu. Hanuman is a sophisticated Asian restaurant that offers exciting vegetarian choices, and Saffron takes pride of place as Darwin’s best Indian restaurant. A perhaps unexpected delight is Manolis, a family-run and family-friendly Greek restaurant that boasts some excellent Greek-Island inspired dishes with boisterous live bouzouki music on the weekends.

Excursions

To get anywhere in the expansive Northern Territories you’ll need a way to get around, and a Darwin car hire can open up the wide range of adventures accessible in the area. Darwin is a fantastic stepping stone to some beautiful northern nature, and the choices are so varied that you should aim to spend as much time as you can out in the country, ideally in an air-conditioned car during the summer months. Litchfield National Park features lush woodlands, waterfalls and tall termite mounds just a two hour drive away from Darwin. From there, popular natural attractions such as Buley Rockhole and a handful of spectacular waterfalls are easily accessible. But for the highlight of the entire state, take Nature’s Way 150 kilometers to Kakadu National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Australia’s biggest national park at 20,000 square kilometers. Here you’ll find rough escarpments and lush rainforests, with 50,000 year old Aboriginal rock art and an incredible array of flora and fauna. Darwin is fairly remote, but a car hire Darwin and a day and a half of travel through the Northern Territory's unique landscape can take you to Cairns, a wonderful destination for outdoor activities.

There is so much to do in this beautiful part of the country, so let HAPPYCAR make your Australian dreams become a reality when you book your next vacation rental car today!
