You’ll find all of the major international car rental companies in Sydney, as well as a good selection of smaller, local companies. With such strong competition, the good news is that you can expect to unearth some cheap deals.

To get the cheapest Sydney car hire deals, compare like for like online before you go, and check the insurance and petrol policies too. While some companies have what seem like extremely low daily rates, additional extras can hike up the cost.

Even if you only want a car for a few days, it’s worth looking into longer rentals – you might find it works out to be the cheapest Sydney car hire option.

Many visitors arrange cheap car rental in Sydney for collection upon arrival at the airport. There are car rental desks on the arrivals level of both the domestic and international airport terminals.

You’ll also find offices in the city centre. Prices are usually fairly similar, though you can on occasion get a better deal by picking up your car rental in Sydney CBD. This option is great if you want to see the central sights on foot or by public transport for a few days before branching out to discover more of the area.
