Important information about Hobart car hire

How do I get from Hobart International Airport (HBA) to the hire car centre?

There is a car hire centre conveniently located in the arrival hall at Hobart International Airport (HBA), which handles several leading brands such as Avis and Hertz. If you prefer to hire from a city centre location, there are a number of hire agencies on Harrington Street in the city centre. The public transport options include a Skybus shuttle service, available at specific times from the bus stop immediately adjacent to the arrival hall (Gate 1) and taxis. If you opt for the Skybus, be aware that it follows a specific route and you should research timetables before departure – the service is not frequent and varies depending on the day of the week. If you do choose to take the bus, the Old Woolstore stop on Macquarie Street will bring you within convenient walking distance of hire agencies in the city centre. The airport is not very far from the city centre and, alternatively, a taxi ride will generally not last longer than 15 minutes to city centre areas. The bus may take slightly longer due to the set routes and the number of stops.

What documentation do I need to hire a car in Hobart, Tasmania?

You will need a valid driver’s licence and, if you are visiting from overseas, a valid passport. The age at which you can legally hire a car in Tasmania is 18, and some form of secondary identification is necessary, along with your driver’s licence, to prove your birth date. Australian citizens can also use their Medicare cards as additional identification. Both Australian and international driver’s licences are acceptable (but please note that NSW licences must be digital). You will also need a valid credit card issued in the same name as the intended driver (along with all other forms of identification submitted). A valid credit card is required even if you intend to pay in cash, as the number is generally retained for insurance purposes and any extra charges you may incur under the hire agreement. These charges will generally be automatically deducted from your credit card under the terms of the hire contract.

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

Speed limits are strictly enforced in Hobart and there are cameras installed all over the city. Speed limits are clearly signposted and violations are fined without exception. The legal blood alcohol limit in Tasmania is 0.05%, and this is also strictly enforced. Especially on certain evenings, it is possible to encounter breath-testing stations that can legally require all motorists to submit to breath alcohol tests. Any violation of the law is subject to on-the-spot fines, which must be paid promptly. Parking limits in the city centre are also strictly enforced. You should pay careful attention to the signposting around parking spaces, to ensure you don’t incur any fines for parking somewhere it isn’t permitted or exceeding time limits on legal parking.

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

You can drive your hire car throughout Tasmania; however, you cannot take your hire car interstate. As Tasmania is an island, the only option for taking a vehicle to another state is via the Spirit of Tasmania ferry, which runs between Devonport and Melbourne. Unfortunately, the Spirit of Tasmania does not accept hire cars on board. If you wish to continue driving in Victoria, hiring a car on arrival in Melbourne from one of the many car hire agencies conveniently located at the ferry terminal can be a great idea.
