Car Rental in Australia

The Complete Australia Driving and Rental Guide

From coast to the vast extension of outbacks, self-drive touring is one of the most recommended ways to explore the Down Under. We have prepared this guide for you to help you ease your mind when planning a trip to Australia.

  • Speed Limit and Traffic Signs
  • Seatbelt and Child Safety
  • Parking, Fuel and Toll
  • Traffic Violation
  • Driving Licence and Age Requirements

Speed Limit and Traffic Signs

Driving is on the left-hand side of the road. Do not overtake on the left-hand side and do not overtake if there are solid white lines. At roundabouts, you must give way to vehicles already on the roundabout and select your lane early.

Speed Limit

There are speed limits of 100-130 km/h on freeways and 50 km/h in built-up areas.

Traffic Signs

These are some specific signs you may encounter and be unfamiliar with when driving in Australia. Even though most of them are self-explanatory, it is strongly advised to make sure you can understand them before taking the road.


Australian regulatory signs have different shapes.

For a complete traffic and road signs, you may refer to this Australia road user handbook.

*Please be aware that the instructions above are subject to change. EasyRentCars.com will do its best to keep them updated.

Seatbelt and Child Safety

Seatbelt Laws

All passengers are required to have their seatbelt fastened at all times when the vehicle is moving. Failure to do so can result in a fine of AU$250.

Booster Seat Laws

Babies up to 6 months must be installed on a rear-facing car seat, and children from 6 months to 4 years are allowed on both forward and rear-facing seats.


Please be aware that children up to 4 years old cannot travel on the front seat unless the car is a two-seater.


Finally, a booster seat or forward facing seat must be used for children between 4 and 7 years old. A child of this age is only allowed on the front seat if there is no other seat available for them.

*Please be aware that the instructions above are subject to change. EasyRentCars.com will do its best to keep them updated.

Parking, Fuel and Toll

Parking

· Forbidden Parking


Cars are not allowed to be parked on the following spots as doing so can result in a fine:


- On the footpath or nature strip as these places are for people.


- On a yellow line.


- In a way that blocks other cars from entering or exiting the driveway. In an emergency, the car may be towed away.


- Less than10 metres (approximately 2 large car lengths) from an intersection so that other cars can safely pass without causing danger.


- In a place that has been marked with ‘No Stopping’ or ‘No Standing’. A ‘No Standing’ sign indicates motorist may not park a car unless they remain in the vehicle and for no more than three minutes.


· Parking Signs

Parking signs in Australia may specify multiple times, places, durations, restrictions and vehicle categories in a condensed form on a single sign. Letter P signs are 'permissive' parking signs where parking is permitted for the time specified. A guide to the most common parking signs is below:


- '1/2P', '1P', '3P': Vehicles can be parked here for half an hour, one hour, or three hours.


- '630AM-730 PM Mon-Fri'
: Vehicles may be parked here only at the specified times - in this case, between 06:30 and 19:30 from Monday to Friday.


- 'P'(no number): Permissive parking zone


- '15 minute', '20 minute', '45 minute': Vehicles may be parked here only for the specified number of minutes


· Paid Parking

There are municipal parking garages and lots, metered parking alongside the road and ticket machine parking in most towns and cities.

Fuel Prices

The average value for Australia gasoline price during July to October 2017 is AU$1.26, while diesel is 3 cents higher.

Toll

Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne are the only three cities in Australia featuring toll roads. Toll roads in Australia use free-flowing tolling, with no toll booth along the entire length of the system to optimize traffic flow. An electronic toll collection system is usually used instead.


If you plan to use toll roads in Australia, we suggest you rent an e-toll/e-pass device from the car hire company, enabling an automatic payment of the toll fee directly from your credit card. Please note that e-toll/e-pass devices are subject to availability at the rental desk. (Image from australiahereandnow.com)


If you have any question related to your toll fee billing, feel free to contact EasyRentCars' 24/7 customer service team for assistance.

*Please be aware that the instructions above are subject to change. EasyRentCars.com will do its best to keep them updated.

Traffic Violation

DUI Laws

In all states of Australia, the legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit for drivers is below 0.05%. Drink driving is treated as a major offence and any person driving a vehicle over the legal limit may face penalties ranging from the suspension, disqualification or cancellation of their licence, fines to imprisonment, depending on the gravity of the offence.

Traffic Fines

Failure to pay the road or parking violation fines can have some long-term consequences, especially for international travellers. Not paying fines could affect your next visit to Australia as infringement notice are inserted into the Police Central Names Index (CNI) and the National Names Index (NNI). 


However, paying fines is not a challenge for renters since the car hire company will pass on the offence information to the authorities and a post or email notification will be sent to you if some traffic laws have been breached. Note that the fine usually comes with a service/administration fee as well. 


It is advisable for you to contact EasryRentCars' 24/7 customer service team if you have any question on this matter.

*Please be aware that the instructions above are subject to change. EasyRentCars.com will do its best to keep them updated.

Driving Licence and Age Requirements

Foreigners on short-term visit may rent a car and drive with a valid foreign driving licence for up to 3 months in Australia. Longer than that, you need to get an Australian driving licence from an Australian state. To drive in Australia, the licence should be a full driving licence held for at least 2 years with no major endorsements. 


To hire a car in Australia you must be at least 21 years old (age may vary by car category). If you are 21-25, you are likely to have to pay a young driver fee. There is no maximum driving age in Australia.

*Please be aware that the instructions above are subject to change. EasyRentCars.com will do its best to keep them updated.

10.0Pleasant car renting experience at a very good price

The price was cheap. We booked first a Toyota Corolla and were given Volkswagen Golf, which is totally fine with us since the car is very good. We didn't ask for it but the GPS was included with the car for free. We had to pay a little extra for an additional driver, as expected.
