KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Coffs Harbour

  • Next time you book cheap car hire in Coffs Harbour, it could end up being an electric vehicle. They're a great option in this region, as both Coffs Harbour and many of its neighbouring coastal cities have plenty of electric vehicle chargers available. The Big Banana Fun Park has a Tesla Supercharger available, as does Park Beach Plaza. You can also find free chargers at the Coffs Central shopping centre. Most charging spots have multiple chargers available offering different watts. Rapid chargers are usually paid and you may need to download a specific app to use them.
  • With cheap car hire in Coffs Harbour, you'll be roughly 5 hours from two of Australia's biggest cities. Head north and you can reach Brisbane in just over 4 hours, or go south and you can reach Sydney in about 5h 30min. Both trips will take you along the Pacific Highway, with the opportunity to stop in some of the country's best coastal cities. You can visit hotspots like Byron Bay and the Gold Coast on the way to Brisbane, or explore nature at the Hunter Valley and Bouddi National Park on the way to Sydney. If you want to stop overnight during your trip, consider planning to stop around 1h 30min before Sydney, in Newcastle.
  • Most Coffs Harbour car hire companies will let you take your vehicle between New South Wales and Queensland without any extra paperwork. However, there may be restrictions on crossing some borders, such as the border between Queensland and the Northern Territory. Additionally, if you plan on driving through the mountainous areas of New South Wales, you may be restricted from driving above the snow line. This is usually dependent on the vehicle you've chosen. There are a few beaches along Australia's east coast where cars are permitted to drive on the sand, but bear in mind that this may not be allowed in hire cars that restrict you from driving on unsealed roads.
  • Nestled between the ocean and dense valleys, hiring a car in Coffs Harbour allows you to pack more activities into your visit. The iconic Big Banana Fun Park is just a 10min drive out of town; however, it takes roughly 45min to reach by bus and the closest stop is 1.5 km away. Likewise, the Forest Sky Pier and Dorrigo National Park are best reached by car as no direct public transport routes are available. As a regional city with bus services that mostly finish around 18:00, hire a car in Coffs Harbour to make the most of evening entertainment and dining.
  • Reception desks for Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz and Thrifty are located on the right-hand side of the Arrivals Hall at Coffs Harbour Airport (CFS). No shuttle is needed to reach your hire car, simply turn left as you exit the terminal and you will find the car park in front of you.
  • Due to the expanse of surrounding national parks, wildlife obstructing Coffs Harbour roads is common. Animals are most likely to wander in front of oncoming vehicles after dark, so always keep your headlights on and an eye on the edges of the road. If you are going 4x4 driving off road, inspect the local environment and clearance height while sticking to the ruts of previous vehicles. Unpaved trails around Coffs Harbour can get quite muddy after heavy rainfall and only experienced 4x4 drivers should go off road.
  • Traffic in Coffs Harbour is rather pleasant and peak hour rushes aren’t nearly bad enough to adjust your travel plans. Vehicles, especially freight trucks, can bank up along the Pacific Hwy, though congestion is mostly caused by frequent intersections rather than heavy road use. Coffs Harbour gets a lot of rain and sometimes flash flooding during the wet season, familiarise yourself with the windscreen wiper functions of your hire car to be prepared.
  • Book your rental car in Coffs Harbour at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Coffs Harbour are around -4% cheaper than other car types, on average
