Location information for Australia

Australia is best explored by rental car. ERentals has over 190 pick-up locations in Australia. This means there is always a pick-up location close to your destination.

The land ‘Down Under' is a tantalising travel destination known for everything from its unique wildlife and rugged landscape to its first-rate cities. This country is large on culture and entertainment, with one of the world's most diverse populations. The best way to enjoy a visit is with cheap hire car in Australia.

When most people think of Australia, the Sydney Opera House is one of the first things that come to mind, but this is only one attraction in Australia's oldest city. Touring its cosmopolitan centre and outlying national parks requires a hire car in Australia, with Sydney being one of the best places in Australia for visitors to base themselves.

Another of Australia's great cities is Brisbane, a former industrial city that has been reborn. Today it offers an eclectic mix of bohemian cafés, shopping boutiques and exclusive resorts. The latter centres on the Gold Coast, an extravagant stretch of real estate fringed by the Great Barrier Reef, a natural wonder so large it can be seen from space.

Most of Australia's great cities are planted squarely on the coast though scattered frontier outposts dot the Outback. At the very centre of all this is Alice Springs, a remote city known for its significance to the ancient Aborigine culture.

Away from these cities is one of the most rugged landscapes in the world. From the parched ‘red centre' to the tropics of Darwin, there are countless places for adventure sport enthusiasts and nature lovers to explore. Rock climbing, scuba diving, bungee jumping and skiing are all possible.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is ERentals the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by ERentals? at this location
