Important information about Alice Springs car hire

How can I get from Alice Springs Airport (ASP) to the hire car centre?

There is no regularly scheduled public transport option from Alice Springs Airport (ASP), but a shuttle service is available upon request. This must be booked in advance. The shuttle can take you throughout the city centre or to a wide range of hotels in the area. You can also arrange your hire car for pickup on arrival at the airport. The car hire desks are located in the Arrivals Hall, right behind the luggage collection. You can hire a car on arrival, but if you want to save time, an easier option is to hire in advance.

What documentation do I need to hire a car in Alice Springs?

The minimum age to hire a car in the Northern Territory is 21, but be aware that most hire agencies charge a “young driver surcharge” for those under the age of 25. Several vehicle classes, such as caravans and minivans, require the driver to be older than 25. To legally hire a car, you will need a valid driver’s licence that has been in use for at least 1 year prior. If you are an overseas visitor, you can generally drive using your home driver’s licence as long as all of the critical information is given in English. If your licence is in a language other than English, you will need a notarised translation of the document, which you will need to keep with you at all times alongside your licence. You will also need your passport. Australian residents will require their Australian driver’s licence and one other piece of identification (such as a Medicare card or passport). All hirers will also require a valid credit card.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Alice Springs?

The Northern Territory has one of the highest highway speed limits in Australia. Due to the vast distances, you can drive up to 130 km/h on some open roads. Speed limits in the city are, however, much lower and strictly controlled. Watch the signage; all speed limits are clearly posted and violations are strictly enforced. Note that permits are required to drive on Aboriginal land and in national parks. These permits can be obtained online through Parks Australia or the Aboriginal lands council holding the title to the land. It is important to respect Aboriginal land rights and customs, and some areas around Alice Springs may be off limits. Aboriginal authorities generally signpost restricted areas well, such as sacred sites and Dreaming Grounds. You should take care not to trespass on these areas; violating these spaces is subject to prosecution.

Can I drive to other states, regions or countries with a hire car from Alice Springs?

Check with your Alice Springs car hire agency before booking. A number of special conditions apply to hire cars in the Northern Territory, and it is not always possible to drive your hired car across state lines. Some agencies do permit this, however, so if you are intending to drive to other states, you should clarify the conditions beforehand. The Northern Territory is a large region, and it is not easy to find suitable routes to drive across state lines in most cases. Also, be aware that many hire contracts specify that cars can only be driven on sealed roads. If you particularly want to go off road and explore the outback, some companies have specialised 4WD options you may be interested in exploring. Some companies can also offer one-way hires that allow you to hire a vehicle and drop it off in a location in another state, but you will need to clarify which states you may drive to prior to hiring a car in Alice Springs.
