Top tips for renting a car at Yulara Ayers Rock Connellan airport

  • If you have a car hire at Yulara Ayers Rock Connellan Airport in mind, then you’ll be pleased to know that you will soon be effortlessly driving around one of the most iconic places in the world, with a stunning landscape for miles. From the airport, there’s only one road that leads to the most local town, Yulara. It’s only about 5 miles away, an 8min drive down State Route 4/Lasseter Highway. If you continue down this highway and Uluru Road for another 14 miles, you arrive at the area’s main attraction, Ayers Rock, after only 30min of driving. Note, there may be tolls on this road so double-check with your car hire company about their policy on paying tolls.
  • When you hire a car at Ayers Rock Connellan Airport, make sure you’re aware of the returns policy and office hours of your car hire company. Some close as early as 14:00, and none have operating hours in the evenings. So, when booking your vehicle online, check the company’s policy and ensure an out-of-hours return is included in the deal if you need to return the vehicle after 16:00.
  • For a Yulara Ayers Rock Connellan Airport car hire, there are plenty of additional services that you can apply to your booking when arranging everything online. For instance, if you hire a car with Thrifty, for some vehicles, they can throw in some extra accessories like an additional spare tyre or a tow bar, it’s worth contacting them directly to make any specific requests. Other extras as standard include child seats, satellite navigations systems and including an additional driver on the agreement, though be sure to check these deals through KAYAK as some deals will include this for free.
  • If you’re searching for a car hire at Yulara Ayers Rock Connellan Airport, then this is a wise choice, as the surrounding area is extremely remote, right in the middle of the Australian outback. So naturally public transport is not an option and hiring a car is the only way to get around and visit the local sights. An Airport Shuttle Bus is available to Yulara, the local town, but of course this a short service for hotel drop-offs and not as advantageous as having a car to explore the surroundings in your own time.
  • Book your rental car at Yulara Ayers Rock Connellan airport at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at Yulara Ayers Rock Connellan airport

Should release credit card retainer when the car is returned in good order like other companies - not 2 weeks later!

Not any online systems worked, no online checking, not possible to download invoice (credentials do not match). People on desk were very friendly and nice, but everything else poor. Also I'll complain my invoice as I get it. The price offer what I get was different as taken my credit card.

I got quote of around 280 AD but had to pay more than 500 AD without insurance. I got no explanation of this overcharge at airport reception.

Wanted to extend the hire for just 4 days but this was going to cost me more than the 11 days I had already hired. So I took it back to the airport in Alice Springs and hired from another car hire agency for $300 rather then over $2k. Ridiculous difference in price for a similar car.

Pros:

The Rav4 was a very comfortable vehicle and held our suitcases and they were big ones! The waitstaff were very nice people and they were quite personable.

Cons:

The Rav4 gets not the best mileage. I drive a Prius and get over 50 MPG on the low end so, having to gas up once during our 3 days of use ....actually twice as we had to fill up before we turned it in...was a bit much.

We hired a vehicle on Thursday the 27th of October at the airport in Yulara. We had exceptional service from the lady at the counter who went above and beyond to help us. I would highly recommend Avis based on her outstanding service.

Pros:

Cheap car (supplier's choice). We (me and my girlfriend) got big MPV (Kia) with 7 spaces. A lot of places, a good car.

Cons:

Slow pickup - there was a problem with mobile network in Yulara - there was no internet connection or mobile signal on the airport this day so everything had to be filled manually by renter/supplier. But it can happen - it is not Hertz fail... E91 Uluru price - $2,22 compare to Sydney - $1,37

Nov 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

Not much

Cons:

I know I booked a "mystery vehicle", but getting a banged up van for a couple in their fifties was not exactly what I envisioned. I can understand a van part as it was a mystery car, but why was it banged up and not cleaned well after the previous use? Nobody was available at the desk mid-day when we were returning the vehicle. We tried two times with half-hour in between. Is anybody manning the desk at all?

Pros:

The car was reliable and clean.

Cons:

The staff was ok but when we went to drop off the car at 9am, no one showed so we waited until 9:15am an still no one showed to allow us to check-in the car. Since no one showed up, we could not address the mileage with anyone and were charged more than we should have been charged.
