Top tips for renting a car at Ballina Byron airport

  • If you choose a car hire at Ballina Byron Airport (BNK), you will have extra flexibility to go to the centre of the city and beyond, compared to if you use alternative transport methods. With a hire car, you can go straight to your destination without having to make changeovers. For instance, you can drive to the close by town of Cumbalum in about 10min from the airport. This same route using public transport requires a transfer from the 640 bus to the 644 bus and takes considerably longer, at approximately 30min.
  • Ballina Byron Airport has a selection of car hire agencies that you can pick from, including leading brands like SIXT, Thrifty and Europcar, so it won’t be hard to find your ideal vehicle. The car companies are easy to find in the terminal too, so you’ll be able to get your journey underway quickly. SIXT offers a meet-and-greet service. A SIXT member of staff will meet you at the desk for your pick-up. You just need to provide your flight number, email and mobile number in advance.
  • When it comes to dropping off your car hire at Ballina Byron Airport, you’ll find that it is signposted well. It’s located a short journey from Ballina via Tamarind Drive and N Creek Road, from where you need to take Southern Cross Drive to the airport. From Byron, a good way to reach the airport is on the Pacific Highway, before also taking N Creek Road and Southern Cross Drive. You will drop your car off at the same place you collected it from, using the parking bays provided.
  • The majority of the Ballina Byron Airport car hire companies offer comprehensive opening hours, so you can pick up and drop off your car at a suitable time. For example, SIXT is usually open from 08:00 until 17:00 throughout the week. If you need to drop your vehicle off at a time outside office hours, then you can do so at the SIXT parking bay; let the agency know beforehand, and then leave the keys at the SIXT branch.
