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)
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.
