Sure, it’s possible to explore Albury without wheels. But with so much to see, having one will definitely make your trip all the more exciting. If you’re excited to head out into the great outdoors, choose something with a little extra power. A full-size car or an SUV could be just what you need. A smaller car, like a mini or a compact, is a great choice for those embarking on shorter trips.
There’s more than enough choice when it comes to rental cars in Albury. From people-movers with plenty of room to spare to agile compacts, you’ll find it all here. Choosing your perfect match of course depends on your budget and what activities you’ve got planned. Some road trips are just begging you to splurge on your dream ride, whereas other adventures require no more than four wheels and a gas pedal. Which car will you be sliding behind the wheel of this time?
There’s quite a bit more to driving around Albury than just sliding behind the wheel and turning the ignition. Familiarize yourself with some of the most important local rules and regulations here:
In Albury, motorists stick to the left side of the road. That means the steering wheel is on the right-hand side. If your rental vehicle has a manual transmission, you’ll be shifting gears with your left hand.
You’ll discover lots of places to park your ride in Albury. Even in the busiest areas, there’s usually a space just where you need it.
There sure are. In Albury, speed limits range from 50km/h to 100km/h. Residential areas have a maximum speed limit of 40km/h unless otherwise indicated.
More often than not, your car rental company will charge the fined amount to your credit card. Alternatively, the company may provide your contact information to the relevant local law enforcement agency so they can send a fine directly to you.
As with many places, normal cell phone usage is not permitted while driving around Albury. However, there is an exception for hands-free or Bluetooth functions. Just be sure to keep your eyes on the road.
The legal BAC (blood alcohol content) limit while operating a vehicle in Albury is 0.05%. If you’re planning a big night on the town, leave your wheels behind and organize a different way of getting home instead.
No, it’s not. In Albury, red means stop, with no exceptions. When approaching a set of traffic lights, always maintain a safe speed so you can easily stop if you need to.
Seat belts must be worn in Mackenzie District. Having said that, this rule may differ for certain vehicles, such as those operated by public transportation systems.
