With everything to do and see in and around Townsville, you'll want to explore more than just the area surrounding your hotel while on your visit. Whether you are dying to try the bistro that has gotten rave reviews across town or check out some of the local hot spots, you'll need your own vehicle to see and do as much as possible while on your trip. Wherever you drive to in Townsville, if you want to get the most from your trip, having access to your automobile is a must.
We work with some of the top businesses. Hertz has over a hundred years of car rental experience and a fleet containing several of the most well-known in the business, like Kia and Ford. With Hertz history and thousands of locations worldwide, you know you'll be well taken care of.
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, whether you reserve your car. But getting well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Be sure to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Townsville is 21. Make sure to review Hertz's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles especially.
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Townsville. Economy or compact cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Townsville vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Hertz does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Townsville. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
We suggest a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Hertz. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Townsville certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at another location. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
With so much to do and see in Townsville, having access to a vehicle lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to check out more of Australia, you can drive when you want to, without having to coordinate ride-hailing services or hanging out a stop waiting for the bus.
