Car hire FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car hires in Queensland, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on 27 February 2024.

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. Car rentals in Queensland for individuals under the age of 21 may be possible under certain circumstances, but car rental locations in Queensland may assess an underage fee in those cases. United States citizens are permitted to drive rental cars in Queensland using their American driver’s license, but this is only allowed for tourists or those in the country temporarily. If you are a long-term resident of Australia, you must acquire a local driver’s license to operate your Queensland car rental.

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. The legal speed limit for car rentals in Queensland is typically between 40 km/h and 80 km/h (25mph to 50 mph) in urban areas but may be as high as 110km/h (62 mph) on highways. Each passenger in a vehicle, including those in a passenger van rental, are required to wear seatbelts. Small children must also be restrained in appropriate car seats. To avoid danger and possible legal issues, drivers in Queensland mustn’t present a BAC above 0.05 if stopped by law enforcement. In order to best keep up with current and recently changed driving laws, it’s best to confer with their Department of Motor Vehicles before picking up your cheap car rental in Queensland.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Queensland?

The best types of car rentals in Queensland are the ones that best fit your personal needs. To give an example, if you’ll be driving mostly on the highways or in the urban areas of the state, an electric car rental would be the most fuel-efficient option. However, if you will only be in the state for a brief visit, then perhaps an economy car rental (cheap car rentals in Queensland can be easily found at the airport) would best fit your situation. Of course, business travelers or anyone looking for a bit of fun on their trip may want to consider a sleek luxury car rental in Queensland. Whatever your needs, there’s a car that’s just right waiting for you in Queensland.
