    Sydney Car RentalThe Sydney Opera House is undeniably the most iconic landmark in Australia and its beauty is no less stunning person. Visit the capital of New South Wales and Australia's largest city on your next holiday and climb the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge before taking the ferry to Manly or the Taronga Park Zoo. Enjoy the sun and surf on one of Sydney's many gorgeous beaches. Take your pick from an endless list of cafés, restaurants and bars that line the streets of this buzzing city and experience the distinct personalities of each suburb as you venture from the Eastern Suburbs through the Inner West, The Rocks, CBD and Northern Beaches. Regardless of interests or age, Sydney has something for every visitor.

    From Sydney, drive out to the lush, expansive Blue Mountains, less than two hours away. Head south to the charming city of Wollongong or explore the beaches of Gosford and Woy Woy.

Take advantage of the abundant national parks in this region with a visit to the Royal National Park, Wollemi National Park or Yengo National Park, among many others. Sydney is a city full of fashion, culture and history, just a stone's throw away from some of Australia's most impressive natural wonders.

    In Sydney, private car parks are located throughout the city, though they can be extremely expensive, costing up to A$70 for a day in the city centre during the week. Street parking may be available but can be difficult to find in the CBD. Parking meters and free spaces are more common outside of the city centre. Sydney's public transportation is excellent, so it is often easier to use buses, trains and trams while travelling within the city.

    There are no tolls in the Newcastle region, though it is common in Australia to have tag accounts for tolls. If you're only using the toll roads occasionally, there are options to purchase a pass without opening an account. The New South Wales government advises contacting the appropriate toll payment providers to make arrangements. Approximate toll costs run between $6-15, depending on the trip. For more information visit the NSW Roads and Maritime Services website.

    Frequently Asked Questions about Hiring a Car in Sydney


    Can I take my rental car to the snow in Sydney?

    Most suppliers will allow you to take your rental car to the snow in New South Wales as long as the car is equipped with winter tyres or fitted with snow chains. You will need to check with the supplier prior to picking up your rental car as there is an additional cost for this. If you would like to know any more information, contact us on 0800 885 052 to find out more.

    Do I have to slow down in my vehicle when I pass the police in Sydney?

    By law, you must slow down to 40km/h when passing a stationary or slow-moving emergency services vehicle when they either have their siren on or their lights are flashing. If you would like any further information the official Transport for NSW website goes into more depth.
