Pros:

It was compact but still roomy enough, easy to drive and park.

Cons:

Nothing the car suited us for what we needed it for. Would get a bigger model car if we were doing a lot of driving and there was more than two of us.

Top tips for hiring a car in Newcastle

  • Surrounded by soft sand beach stretching from Nelson Bay to Lake Macquarie and dense forestlands, hiring a car in Newcastle will let you break free from the city, off the beaten path. Driving to Blackbutt Nature Reserve from the centre of Newcastle takes just 15min, though the journey by bus or train requires at least 30min with more than 1.5 km of walking. Coastal destinations, including Worimi Regional Park and Tomaree National Park, are best reached by car as direct public transport routes are not available from Newcastle.
  • The offices of Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Europcar, Hertz and Thrifty are directly across from the baggage claim carousels at Newcastle Airport (NCL). Hire cars are located 100 m from the terminal via a protected walkway. Turn left as you exit the building and follow the signs to find your vehicle.
  • Newcastle has several railway level crossings passing through town and extra caution should be taken when approaching the intersections. Avoid driving over the tracks if you see the boom gates lowering and remember not to cross until the sirens have finished. If beach driving is in your plans, consult with local councils to understand which sections of coastline allow 4WDs to enter. Observe conditions and tide levels to ensure there is an adequate amount of firm sand to drive over.
  • Traffic is at its worst in Newcastle for the school rush and as commuters make their way to work, between 07:30–09:30. Conditions are comparatively quiet through the remainder of the day; however, major arterial roads near the University of Newcastle, such as Main Rd and Maitland Rd, experience steady congestion. You should expect delays when using Newcastle Link Rd and Pacific Mwy as people travel to and from Sydney. Strong winds are common in Newcastle and it’s recommended that drivers reduce speed and keep an eye out for falling branches.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Newcastle for $84 or less
  • Book your car hire in Newcastle at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Newcastle are around 16% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Compact car hires in Newcastle are around 12% cheaper than other car types, on average
