Top Tips for Hiring an SUV in Canberra

  • When planning on visiting Canberra, there is no better way to explore this stunning part of Australia than with Canberra SUV hire. You'll definitely need to hire a car in Canberra if you plan to head out of the town centre. Most attractions or nearby towns are difficult to access with public transport. The comfortable driving power of an SUV makes the hilly landscape of the Canberra area more comfortable as you head out to Brindabella or Namadgi National Parks for beautiful views. With an SUV, you can comfortably venture out further along Nerriga Road to Jervis Bay for a lovely 3-hour drive, or further yet, to Sydney or Albury and Wodonga.
  • Canberra Airport is a great place to find the ideal SUV for your trip. When you arrive at the airport, you will find all the car hire agencies together in a central hub on the ground floor, just outside the Arrivals terminal. You can arrange Canberra SUV hire with Budget, Europcar, Avis, Thrifty, Enterprise and others. When you collect your car, ensure you add on any extras you may need for the trip, such as a car seat for kids, a GPS navigation system and even a toolkit.
  • Canberra’s roads are in good condition, with excellent toll-controlled freeways (motorways). You will receive your toll bill after you return your hire SUV to your Canberra SUV hire company. Canberra has a range of polite to sometimes rude local drivers, and there is nothing too tricky about the road structure with good signage and roundabouts. With the roundabout system, you will need to give way to the traffic on the right. You'll drive on the left-hand side of the road in Canberra with your hire SUV.
  • If you are used to handling SUVs, four-wheel drives and other large vehicles, then driving your 4x4 in Canberra should not present any issues. Book one with air conditioning to ensure you stay cool during the scorching Australian summers. You'll find that Canberra has its fair share of congestion like most cities, and the Commonwealth Avenue Bridge is a terrible spot for peak-hour congestion between 6:00 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. Canberra weather can be unpredictable, and in October, you might find extreme rains, which can often cause flash flooding. Listen to weather reports to ensure you are not on a road trip during heavy rainfall.
  • 25% of our users found an SUV hire in Canberra for $66 or less
  • Book your SUV hire in Canberra at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • October is typically the cheapest month to hire an SUV in Canberra, with prices around $59 per day. The most expensive month is August, with average prices of $74 per day.

  • What is the most reliable SUV brand to hire in Canberra?

I rang to confirm car as I wanted a particular car and was told definitely getting what I reserved, when I went to pick up there was a different car, but when I told them about the annoyance they brought the car from another location for me I just had to wait 15 - 20 mins which was fantastic I just wished they had done that in the beginning and then I wouldn’t of had to wait. But car was amazing and I still wish I never had to return it. I am still in mourning 🙇🏽‍♀️Lol

Free upgrade, from a Toyota Corolla to a Mercedes a class. And great value even, without considering the upgrade.

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

The reservation was cancelled after I booked the advertised car online through a 3rd party website. It was a very disappointing experience to have to try again 5 times to actually have the booking accepted. Why don't the 3rd party rental companies and Thrifty communicate better so customers actually have a good experience instead of tearing out their hair?
