KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Hobart

  • It is highly advantageous to rent a car in Hobart as the public transportation in the city is somewhat limited. The main form of transit available is the public bus, but for groups or families visiting Hobart this likely won’t be as efficient or comfortable as a hire car. Also, if you plan on visiting any of the neighboring attractions such as Wellington Park (21 km or 13 miles away), it is often cheaper to drive there yourself rather than joining a tour.
  • Looking to pick up a hire car upon landing in Hobart so you can begin your Tasmanian journey? If your flight is arriving at Hobart International Airport, you will find all the airport’s various hire car counters located in the Arrivals section of the airport.
  • Driving in Hobart is a simple and easy affair for the most part, but there is one thing to remember when heading out onto the roads outside the city -- namely, the winding roads. Many of the roads and highways can be surprisingly curvy as they move up and down the hills, so caution is advised. This is especially the case in difficult weather conditions such as rain or snow.
  • Rush hour in Hobart starts off in the morning around 6:30 a.m. and lasts until 9:00 a.m. throughout the work week. The afternoon traffic picks up around 4:00 p.m. and finishes shortly after 6:00 p.m. Most of the streets don’t feature too much congestion but Davey Street is one to avoid if possible.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Hobart for ₪133 or less
  • Book your rental car in Hobart at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Hobart are around -101% cheaper than other car types, on average

Don’t rent from either RentalCars.com or Bargain Car Rental. My experience with SIXT was great, although their price for this last-minute rental over Christmas was outrageous.

Best to go with Avis rental car service 😉.

FAQs about renting a car in Hobart

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Hobart?

    Smaller vehicles such as sedans, coupes, and compacts are certainly some of the best options for would-be renters visiting Hobart. The city’s central business district has a few one-way streets that make smaller cars a more attractive option for many drivers. Also, the smaller parking spaces typical of the city’s streetside parking may not fit larger vehicles.

  • What’s the speed limit in Hobart?

    The speed limit starts off at 30 km/h (18 mph) in residential areas and up to 50 km/h (31 mph) on urban roads. Out on the highways and motorways, the speed limit jumps up to 100 or 110 km/h (62 or 68 mph) depending on the size of the road and whether it is divided or not. On gravel roads, which are found outside of the city in smaller communities, the speed limit is 80 km/h (50 mph).

  • Where are the best places to park in Hobart?

    The downtown area of Hobart has plenty of parking garages and lots available. Drivers should have no issue finding parking even during the busiest parts of the day. Outside of the city center, though, streetside parking is often the best option as the streets in the peripheral areas tend to be on the more spacious side.

    On average a rental car in Hobart costs ₪153 per day.

We had very wonderful experience with Avis in Tasmania especially staffs were very friendly and helpful. Dipa helped us out getting our car very simple and she also gave us some guidance on which places to visit in Tasmania. We did not had any issues with the car and very convenient to pick up and drop off the car at the airport. So, Thank you Dipa and other staffs for your excellent service. 😊😊

Pros:

Easy to deal with, convenient off site pick up and drop off and very reasonable rates. I would definitely use them again as cars were good and they are by far the cheapest car rental company I have ever used.

Cons:

Dropped off prior to opening time at 7am but didn't get loaded onto bus for 15 minutes. Maybe they could start work 15 minutes earlier to check cars so we can get to airport on time. Also, clients had to work out who should go on first bus to airport based on flight departure times. I think the staff could have organised this. Excess was $5500, we would like to pay a (very) small amount extra to reduce this to $5000 as this is what our travel insurance will cover.

Sixt was fantastic. The shuttle bus driver came to pick us up at Hobart Airport, despite being unable to find our booking. He spent an hour with us until the problem with Kayak had been sorted and they had assigned a vehicle for us and sent an email confirming this. He then took us to Cambridge Sixt rentals and explained to the receptionist the situation. We received a better car and completed all necessary paperwork in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. We could not have asked for better service when renting and returning the car.

Pros:

Compact car and efficiency of fuel

Cons:

Poor condition of vehicle. Vehicle made rattling noise from engine, which made us insecure of car breaking down. When defrost / a/c system was powered an extremely loud and disturbing sound came from what I imagine is the compressor. This last condition resulted in lots of vibration in the car when idle.

Kayak misleadingly shows this as “in terminal” when in fact it’s a shuttle ride away. The shuttle does not run very often. And they don’t have cars ready (we were told when we arrived that it would be at least an hour because they were waiting on another rental company to send them cars). Sketchy! Avoid!
