Darwin Car Hire and Rentals

Darwin car hire and rental companies provide a wide range of cars for local travel, 4WD vehicles and camper vans for extended travel.

Choosing the right vehicle to suit your plans for a trip to Darwin is important, especially if you plan to travel any distance from the city.

The roads around Darwin and the main roads to well known destinations such as Kakadu, Litchfield Park and Katherine Gorge are all sealed, good quality roads and can be travelled with standard 2WD vehicles.

If you have your heart set on visiting a particular place, check to see the quality of the road. For example the Lost City in Litchfield Park is definitely 4WD country even though the bitumen comes within a few kilometres.
Accessibility to some places is also very limited in the wet season when roads can be covered by heavy monsoonal rains.

It is extremely important to secure a booking for your vehicle before you travel. Although Darwin is well serviced with most of the International rental companies, there can be times when it is hard to find the vehicle you need.

Remember Darwin is a long way from anywhere, so a local company manager can't simply get on the phone and ask for more vehicles for his fleet in the next 48 hours.

This is particularly important with motorhomes and campervans which can be booked out for months in the tourist season.
