Car hire FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car hires in Toowoomba, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on 18 April 2024.
  • Where can I park my hire vehicle in Toowoomba’s downtown area?

    The city of Toowoomba features a mix of free and paid parking spaces. You can generally find some free 5-10 minute on-street parking spaces. Some on-street parking spots also allow you to park for free for the first 30 minutes. However, it’s crucial to check the signage to confirm. You’ll also find off-street parking areas like the Clifford Street car park and Central car park, all of which have their own fee structures.

  • Are there any toll roads around Toowoomba?

    The only toll road to be aware of is located east of the Mort Street Interchange between the suburbs of Cranley, Mt Kynoch and Harlaxton. Known as the Toowoomba Bypass Toll Point, this is a free-flow tolling area, meaning you won’t have to stop to pay the toll. However, if your hire vehicle doesn’t have a tolling tag, the fee may be charged directly to the card you used to hire your vehicle. To avoid confusion, it’s worth discussing tolls with your hire agency if you think you may need to use the Toowoomba Bypass.

  • Do I need a child car seat for any kids travelling in the hire vehicle?

    Australia’s strict car seat laws apply to hire vehicles. This means that if you’re travelling with a child under 6 months old, you’ll need to either bring or book the appropriate car seat. Children between 6 months and 4 years old must be secured in a rear-facing or forward-facing seat, while those aged 4 to 7 require a booster seat suitable for their height. If bringing your own car seats from home is not an option, most Toowoomba car hire companies offer a range of child car seats that you can book for a fee.
