When to book a car hire in Launceston

Top tips for hiring a car in Launceston

  • Hire a car in Launceston and enjoy the freedom of exploring Tasmania’s wonderful scenery. Wineries across the Tamar Valley are best accessed by car, with famous estates such as Marion’s Vineyard, Moores Hill and Swinging Gate less than a 35min drive but more than 1h away by bus. Driving to inner-city attractions, like Cataract Gorge Reserve and the Queen Victoria Museum and Planetarium, also roughly halves the travel time compared to using the public bus network. Launceston is remarkably hilly, which is ideal for scenic lookouts but not for getting around on foot, meaning you’ll be thankful you can drive.
  • Reception offices of major car hire companies including Budget, Europcar, Hertz and Avis are located next to the baggage claim area at Launceston Airport (LST). Finding your hire car is sure to be straightforward, as the car park is adjacent to the terminal and the airport is relatively small. With the airport situated roughly 15 km from the city, hiring a car in Launceston removes the stress of ordering a cab.
  • Be mindful that the rural roads outside of central Launceston are rather windy and you’ll need to stay attentive when behind the wheel. Wildlife, ranging from wallabies to wombats, commonly get lost and pass across roads, so keep an eye out and reduce your speed if anything catches your attention. Despite being one of Tasmania’s largest cities, Launceston has a laid-back atmosphere and pedestrians often assume right of way.
  • Peak hour traffic in Launceston is worst between 07:30–09:00 and 16:00–18:00 on weekdays. Cars move slowly in the inner-city area, especially along one-way streets, such as York St and Paterson St. Evening congestion is most noticed on West Tamar Hwy and you should expect delays if it is part of your route.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Launceston for $25 or less
  • Book your car hire in Launceston at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Launceston are around 25% cheaper than airport locations on average
