If you want to see everything Hobart has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from National. Stop spending your vacation waiting on the bus, or wasting money here and there with ride-shares or taxis. Having your own ride allows you to go to the sites you want to see the most, whenever you want. Make your next trip to Australia more enjoyable with a National rental car.
With everything to do and see in and around the Hobart area, you'll want to explore more than just the area surrounding your hotel while on your visit. Whether you are wishing to check out the restaurant that has received fantastic reviews across town or try some of the local hot spots, you'll want your own car to take in as much as possible while on your vacation. No matter where you end up staying in Hobart, if you wish to get the most out of your time in the city, having your auto is a must.
Originally founded by a couple dozen independent rental car agents in 1947, National has grown from 60 locations in the United States to over 2,000 international locations. National provides everything SUVs to compact, allowing you to choose the best ride for your next getaway.
We strive to get you the lowest price, whether you book. But reserving your car ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make sure to check the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Make sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
National's minimum age to rent a car in Hobart is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to check National's policy to know what the total cost is before you book.
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Hobart. Compact or economy cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Hobart trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent from National. Many major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Hobart. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
National requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Hobart. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You should get your automobile 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 find a gas station before you bring the car back to National. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Hobart certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
National typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at a different location. However, there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
With so much to do and see in Hobart, having access to a car lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to discover more of Australia, you can go wherever you like, without having to spend time waiting for the bus or wave down a taxicab.
