Top Tips for Hiring a Pickup Truck in Launceston

  • Hiring a ute in Launceston can help you navigate the hilly terrain and reach remote locations in Northern Tasmania. There's no need to waste time trying to fit your cycling or water sporting gear into the boot of a standard-size car when you can pack a ute and head to beautiful spots like Cradle Mountain and Wineglass Bay with everything you need for a great day trip.
  • One thing that attracts visitors to Launceston is the abundant fishing. Reaching some of the best fishing spots is only doable by car and the perfect reason to hire a ute in Launceston. Utes are one of the best choices for fishing trips around the area, as you can load up your gear without worrying about overloading or running out of space. You can also keep smelly or wet items out of the cabin on the way back for a more comfortable trip. Head to spots like Mersey River and Meander River, about an hour's drive from Launceston.
  • Due to the distances you're likely to cover when you hire a ute in Launceston, it's good to know what to expect on the roads while driving. A ute is a big car, and therefore you'll find they take a fair amount of petrol. So the first thing to check is if the ute you hire in Launceston takes diesel or unleaded. Looking for a service station in a built-up area is easy, and you'll find them frequently on highways. However, they're often called roadhouses when you head into more remote areas.
  • When driving in Launceston, you'll run into high traffic times, but they are generally pretty short and mild. During the week, you'll find traffic occurs from 8 am till 9 am and again from 5 pm till 6 pm. Be aware that on Fridays, traffic might start a little earlier and run later, from 4 pm till 6:30 pm. Phone signal is often limited in the more rural areas outside Launceston, so it might be a good idea to add a GPS to your ute booking.
  • 25% of our users found a pickup truck hire in Launceston for $107 or less
  • Book your pickup truck hire in Launceston at least 5 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • November is typically the cheapest month to hire a pickup truck in Launceston, with prices around $27 per day. The most expensive month is July, with average prices of $99 per day.

FAQs About Hiring a Pickup Truck in Launceston

  • What are the rules of the road for driving a ute in Launceston?

    You'll be driving on the left-hand side of the road in Launceston. There are fixed and mobile speed traffic cameras all around the area, so sticking to the speed limit is essential. Limits are 50 kph in urban areas, 100 kph in rural areas, and 110 kph on highways. The blood alcohol limit for driving in Launceston is 0.05%. Anything over the limit is a serious offence. All passengers and the driver must have seat belts on while the car is moving, or individuals can face a fine.

  • What are the requirements for driving a ute in Launceston?

    The minimum age to hire a car is 21 in Australia, but with bigger vehicles like these, you'll need to be at least 23 years old. Drivers younger than 30 often need to pay an additional young driver's fee. Remember, utes are big heavy cars and require some experience to drive safely. When you collect your ute hire in Launceston, you'll need to produce a valid driver's license, a valid form of ID or your passport, and a credit card. When driving around Launceston, you'll need to have your license and ID in the car and proof of insurance.

  • Where is the best place to park in Launceston?

    You'll find parking on the street in the city centre, but parking a ute can sometimes be tricky, especially in the early morning and evenings when it's busy. If you're looking for on-street free parking outside these times, look on Paterson Street East, Paterson Street West and Elizabeth Street. If you are out of luck, you'll find parking spaces at 25 Earl Street Car Park and Quadrant Plaza for an hourly fee.

Jun 2018

Pros:

I got the car I ordered after threatening to go to the ACCC. I did then follow through as it is illegal to use a bait and switch model which CarTrawler employs: advertise a top model car at a heavily discounted price and when then IMMEDIATELY supply another cheaper vehicle. Fraudulent. I hope you are fined or banned from the Australian market for being a part of this deceptive behaviour.

Cons:

I liked the car but it took several hours of phone calls to the fraudulent companies involved, three of them, to force their hand.

The car booked was not available as I was told my booking was wrongly done in a smaller category than what I booked. However Hertz replaced my booking with a better car at the same price and I was happy with it.
