Frequently asked questions

What happens if I need to cancel my Australia car reservation?
When you cancel at least six hours ahead of pickup, many reservations qualify for a full refund. However, not all are eligible for this, so it’s important to understand the policy. Look over your booking for the finer details or head to our Customer Service Portal to find out more.
What types of cars can I rent in Australia?
Inexpensive, easy to handle and delivering great mileage, it’s no wonder compact vehicles are the most popular type of rental in Australia. Tour this city in one of these and you’ll be able to fit into tight parking spaces and easily dart around busy streets. A compact is ideal for city breaks or quick road trips. But they’re not your only options. Go even smaller with an economy model or bigger with an intermediate, a full-size or premium — the choice is all yours!
How do I find the best car rental deals in Australia with Expedia?
It’s easy to find an incredible deal with Expedia. Just choose the car class, select your dates and preferred pickup and drop-off locations, and browse offers from all the leading providers. Save even more when you combine your Australia car rental with flight or hotel bookings.
What do you need to rent a car in Australia?
The main requirements are a valid driver’s license and a credit card in your name. Car rental companies will offer you insurance, which is optional. But you may have to provide proof of alternative coverage if you opt out. Make sure you check with your rental provider to avoid any issues.
Can I rent a car for a month or longer in Australia?
Yes, and the wonderful news is companies often offer lower rates the longer you rent. Check out our long-term car rental deals in Australia and cruise off with an amazing bargain.
Where can I find an Australia car rental if I am younger than 25?
Age policies are different between rental suppliers, so be prepared to do a bit of homework. Found an Australia outlet that does rent to drivers under 25 years of age? Great news! Just keep in mind that extra charges often apply to drivers between the ages of 21 and 24. The fine print of each rental car you’re considering will have all the information you need.
