Port Moresby Guide

Guide

Port Moresby, the capital of Papua New Guinea, is the main gateway to the natural beauty and untouched wilderness of the rest of the country, attracting a steady stream of adventure-driven tourists. Located on the shores of a deep, beautiful natural harbour on the south coast of the country, the city has numerous attractions for travellers to see and do, which is the reason why car hire is the most favoured form of transportation here.

Explore Port Moresby

The highlights of Port Moresby are its lively markets of Boroko and Gordons (reputedly the largest in the country), where tourists can spend hours being amazed at the variety of goods offered for sale. Many of the animals are sold live, due to the lack of refrigeration in both the markets and in ordinary homes, and range from seafood to birds and even livestock.

Other attractions around the city include Parliament House and the National Museum and Art Gallery, with its excellent exhibits on the country's geography, history, culture, flora and fauna, while out of town, Idler's Beach, Sinasi Reef and Daugo Island boast white, sandy beaches and stunning coral reefs, affording plentiful opportunities for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving.

Quality accommodation and excellent restaurants are located around the harbour area, while Boroko is the center of the nightlife scene, with more quality restaurants, bars, cafes and pubs.

There are many rewarding destinations for day trips from Port Moresby. Northeast are the amazing Rouna Falls and the nearby Varirata National Park, offering tourists magnificent lookouts back to Port Moresby and the coast, while to the north lies Brown River, a picturesque spot for swimming, rafting and picnics. For the more adventurous, the historic Kokoda Trail links the northern and southern coasts and is the most popular walking track in the country.

Transport

Port Moresby International Airport (POM), also referred to as Jacksons International Airport, is served mainly via connections from Australia. However there are direct connections with Singapore, Manila, and Guam. Transportation services from the airport into the city are frequent and reliable. Car hire companies operate from desks in the airport's arrivals hall. Book online in advance to secure a car and so the rental suppliers arrange a car for you to collect on arrival.

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).
