Information about your trip to Sydney

The harbor city of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, is stunning by all standards. A visit to the city will treat you to a beautiful contrast of land and sea. The city is awash with top-notch galleries, museums, beaches, and restaurants. However, the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, The Rocks, and the Sydney Beaches are some of the attractions you don’t want to miss. George Street is undoubtedly the most memorable road in the city, and with car rentals in Sydney, you will enjoy the brilliant architectural designs that line the street. Avoid driving at peak times as roads become heavily congested and difficult to maneuver. Using Sydney car rentals is efficient since parking is available both within and outside the metropolis, but the demand could be high. Even more, you can get up to 100 car rental locations in Sydney.

Is it worthwhile to rent a car while visiting Sydney?

Car rentals in Sydney are a convenient way to enjoy what the city has to offer for tourists. Besides, metered parking is available at Goulburn Street and Kings Cross Car Park, both within the city. While free street parking is also available, that cannot go beyond a quarter of an hour. The city is quite difficult to access using a car during peak hours, particularly in the morning and early evenings. Apart from Sydney, the larger New Wales has remarkable holiday destinations. The Blue Mountains, Byron Bay, Lord Howe Island, and the Hunter Valley are some of the sightings you would not want to miss. Sydney is walkable, and a stroll around the CBD is a good idea. However, a cheap car rental in Sydney is ideal for visiting destinations across the town.

What different driving laws should I keep in mind while driving in Sydney?

The viability of rental cars in Sydney is beyond doubt. You can easily get out of town or drive around Pyrmont, The Rocks, Bondi, Milson’s Point, and Newton. Roads that you can cruise around in your car or passenger van rental include Harbor Bridge, Eastern Distributor, Cross City Tunnel, and the MS East Freeway. But when operating car rentals in Australia, keep to the left and observe speed limits in school neighborhoods, urban and residential areas. Since pollution is equally something you’d want to look out for, you may consider an electric car rental. Also, seatbelts are compulsory, and the law prohibits drunk driving. If you plan to travel to Sydney, contact the Roads and Maritime Services for more information on current rules.

Will I need a special driver’s license or permit to drive a rental car in Sydney if I’m visiting from another country?

Any Australian can get a learner’s license as long as they are 16 years old, medically fit, and pass their Driver Knowledge Test. However, you can only get the full license after holding both the P1 and P2 licenses. As a tourist, you can use your overseas license to operate an automobile in Sydney, meaning you can get an economy car rental or a luxury car rental in Sydney on arrival. Note that your overseas license must be current, and you can only operate the same class of vehicle your license authorizes you to drive. Carry an English translation of your license if it is not in English. If you are over 75 years, you will undergo a medical review to ascertain your roadworthiness.
