Sydney Airport car hire tips

  • Drive your rental car on the left. Prefer a rental car company that offers you a car right at the airport's premises. Note that there are some companies that park their rental cars at off-site locations.
  • As Sydney is a major cosmopolitan city, several motorways pass through it. Paying a little extra for GPS navigation system is immensely useful, while driving in and around the city.
  • An air-conditioned rental car is must from November until March as Sydney experiences excessive hot climate during this time of the year.
  • Avoid driving on roads either entering or exiting the city during peak hours. Road network crisscrossing Sydney remains relatively free during 09:30 am to 04:30 pm.
  • While paid parking spaces are abundantly available across Sydney, free parking lots are quite few in number.
  • Sydney largely practices an electronic toll system, making an e-toll pass necessary, while you drive around in your rental car. Also, expect a nominal usage charge, while crossing some bridges and tunnels.
