Top tips for hiring a car in Hobart

  • It is highly advantageous to rent a car in Hobart as the public transportation in the city is somewhat limited. The main form of transit available is the public bus, but for groups or families visiting Hobart this likely won’t be as efficient or comfortable as a hire car. Also, if you plan on visiting any of the neighboring attractions such as Wellington Park (21 km or 13 miles away), it is often cheaper to drive there yourself rather than joining a tour.
  • Looking to pick up a hire car upon landing in Hobart so you can begin your Tasmanian journey? If your flight is arriving at Hobart International Airport, you will find all the airport’s various hire car counters located in the Arrivals section of the airport.
  • Driving in Hobart is a simple and easy affair for the most part, but there is one thing to remember when heading out onto the roads outside the city -- namely, the winding roads. Many of the roads and highways can be surprisingly curvy as they move up and down the hills, so caution is advised. This is especially the case in difficult weather conditions such as rain or snow.
  • Rush hour in Hobart starts off in the morning around 6:30 a.m. and lasts until 9:00 a.m. throughout the work week. The afternoon traffic picks up around 4:00 p.m. and finishes shortly after 6:00 p.m. Most of the streets don’t feature too much congestion but Davey Street is one to avoid if possible.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Hobart for $39 or less
  • Book your car hire in Hobart at least 6 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Hobart are around 4% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Economy car hires in Hobart are around 18% cheaper than other car types, on average

Out on the highways and motorways, the speed limit jumps up to 100 or 110 km/h (62 or 68 mph) depending on the size of the road and whether it is divided or not. On gravel roads, which are found outside of the city in smaller communities, the speed limit is 80 km/h (50 mph).

How are gas prices in Hobart?

Where are the best places to park in Hobart?

The downtown area of Hobart has plenty of parking garages and lots available. Drivers should have no issue finding parking even during the busiest parts of the day. Outside of the city center, though, streetside parking is often the best option as the streets in the peripheral areas tend to be on the more spacious side.
