Car rental location Bundaberg Airport

Bundaberg Airport Guide

Car Hire

It would be a huge mistake for any visitor to Australia to pass up the chance to see the Great Barrier Reef. Bundaberg, known as the reef's Southern Gateway, may be the best base to explore this natural wonder. Qantas frequently flies from Brisbane to Bundaberg Airport and from here, it's an easy drive to the city centre. Car hire in Bundaberg Airport is recommended, not only because public transport is limited but because of the great scenery provided by the beautiful Australian coast and nearby destinations such as Bargara and Mon Repos.

Who to Book With
Visitors will easily find the car rental desks in the small terminal of Bundaberg Airport. The car rental companies represented here are Avis, Hertz, Budget and Thrifty. Europcar has a desk at the airport car park.

Need to Know Essentials
You will need to show the following documents at vehicle collection:

- National driver's licence (must have been held for at least one year)
- Proof of identity
- Credit card (with credit to cover the total cost plus the cost of incidental charges)

For more info read our FAQ's.

Driving
The speed limits in Australia are 31mph to 35mph for residential or built-up areas and 62mph to 68mph for rural roads and highways. Seatbelts must be used by all persons within a moving vehicle. Check if the car you are driving has a e-Tag or e-Way pass which allow passage at toll gates on motorways. Otherwise, prepare loose change to pass through such toll gates smoothly. Take note of parking signs which indicate parking restrictions. A 1/2P sign, for example, indicates that vehicles can be parked for no more than 30 minutes.

See our guide to Australia for more information on driving here.

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. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
