Car rental location Armidale Airport

Armidale Airport Guide

Armidale is a university town in rural northern New South Wales (a state of Australia). Situated about halfway between Sydney (the capital of New South Wales) and Brisbane (the capital of another Australian state, Queensland) on the New England Highway, Armidale is home to the University of New England.

Armidale Airport is a short drive in your car hire from Armidale central business district . in fact only eight kilometres. Armidale Airport is the highest licensed airport in New South Wales at a height of 1084 metres. But Armidale is well serviced by train and coach, so get there however you can but get a car hire to see the sites while you.re there!

Close to Armidale is the town of Uralla, home to the 1860s bushranger Captain Thunderbolt. Although an outlaw, as with Ned Kelly in Glenrowan, the locals have adopted Thunderbolt . a.k.a. Fred Ward . as a bit of a larrikin hero. Formed originally as an outpost to the University of Sydney in 1938, the University of Armidale became a university in its own right in 1954.

The university is one of the town.s main employers, and is built around the old home of Booloominbah, which dates back to 1888. It is now home to the Vice Chancellor of the university, and several other administrative offices, as well as a restaurant. The Canadian architect John Hunt, who designed Booloominbah, also designed the Saint Peter.s Anglican Cathedral, making Armidale a cathedral city.

Grab your car hire and head to one of the shopping centres in Armidale, or the Mall, which was the first of its kind in regional Australia. Opened in 1973, it stretches for three blocks along Armidale.s main street, Beardy Street, named for the two founders of the town (who had beards). Notable musician and entertainer Peter Allen hailed from Armidale.

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 Carrentals.co.uk 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.
