Pros:

Car was great, nice that it had the back up camera.

Cons:

We specified that we would return the car at 9 pm. When we arrived everything was closed at the airport, and we didn't know where to drop it off or what instructions to follow, would have been nice to be informed that they wouldn't be there when we arrived to drop the car off.

Prices need to be in USD or AUD not just $. The insurance is a scam. $5000 excess unless you pay more per day is extortion. Rental service used to be good now its what service?

Top tips for hiring a car in Mackay

  • Balmy throughout the year, Mackay is the perfect destination for a hire car, in order to stay out of the sun. Average monthly temperatures don’t often fall below 20°C and an air-conditioned cabin will be your best friend. A bus to Mackay Aqua Park takes roughly 45min from the centre of town; however, driving yourself requires only 10min. Scenic coastal spots such as Cape Hillsborough National Park, Bucasia Beach and Dolphin Heads are more than 15 km from Mackay and best reached by car if you’d like to avoid inner-city beaches.
  • The reception offices of Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz, Enterprise and Thrifty are in the Arrivals Hall of Mackay Airport (MKY). After collecting your keys, exit the terminal and walk over the pedestrian crossing to find all hire cars on your right.
  • Extended freight trucks, known as road trains, frequent major arterial roads around Mackay, including Bruce Hwy and Peak Down Hwy. Some of the trucks are up to 50 m in length, requiring more space and time to overtake than regular vehicles. Travel at slow speeds if off-roading with a 4WD and avoid contact with saltwater. Native wildlife regularly wander across Mackay roads at night, so extra caution should be taken to avoid collisions. Yellow signs featuring a hopping kangaroo indicate areas where fauna are common.
  • Traffic congestion is mostly negligible in Mackay and it won’t heavily affect your travel plans. Key thoroughfares such as Gordon St and Sydney St can experience banked up cars between 16:00–18:00, though traffic still tends to flow smoothly. It’s recommended to not drive during the middle of the day in summer months, as Mackay can climb to above 35°C and make car cabins swelter.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Mackay for $103 or less
  • Book your car hire in Mackay at least 7 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Mackay are around 38% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Mini car hires in Mackay are around 21% cheaper than other car types, on average
