Car Rental FAQs

What are the requirements to rent a car in Queensland?

In general terms, drivers will need to be at least 21 years of age to book Queensland car rentals.

What are the rules for driving in Queensland?

It is important to remember that in Australia, drivers use the left side of the road. Therefore, rental cars in Queensland are equipped with steering wheels located on the right-hand side of the car.
