8.8 Excellent19 Nov. 2018
Would rent Thrifty again in SydneyPros: Great pick up and drop off options. Clean car. Great Staff. Very friendly.Cons: I did not like the fact that Kayak did not send reservation confirmation to Thrifty, they still honored it but they had to hustle getting me a car at the pick up location. I also did not like the website info for Drop off. I had to find out on drop off date that Thrifty had a Domestic and International Drop off location with COMPLETELY different procedures.

4.4 Okay14 Feb. 2019
Cons: Vehicle provided was not the vehicle reserved. We reserved a Ford Transit but what we got was a Kia Carnival which although was “similar” it did not provide the same amount of baggage space. 6 adults with 6 full size bags we were packed in like sardines. Interior was stained, brakes need attention
4.0 Okay1 Nov. 2018
OkCons: The Avis staff didn‘t know about the Alianz insurance kayak offered and weren‘t helpful in regard to comparing theirs to the one I already had.

Top tips for hiring a car in North Sydney

  • Hire a car in North Sydney to have the freedom to explore secluded bays and destinations, such as Berry Island Reserve and Balls Head Reserve, that are not connected by public transport. Reaching South Sydney beaches only requires a 30min drive from North Sydney; however, bus and train journeys must changeover in the CBD and take closer to 1h. A hire car is also preferable if you are planning to visit Garigal National Park or Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park because it’s possible to drive right into the heart of the protected bushlands, while public transport drops you at the perimeter.
  • If you are landing at Terminal 1 of Sydney International Airport (SYD), hire company offices are located next to the exit gates between Arrivals Hall A and B. It’s a short walk to reach the P7 Car Park where vehicles are picked up and no shuttle is required. Reception desks can also be found in Terminal 2 and 3, opposite the baggage claim area. Hire companies such as East Coast Car Rentals, JUCY and Ace Rental Cars provide free shuttles to their branches off airport grounds.
  • Crossing the Sydney Harbour Bridge can be confusing as there are many lanes and turn-offs, which is why using GPS navigation is recommended. North Sydney has plenty of one-way streets and it’s best to outline a clear route to avoid getting caught going in circles. Undertaking is common as drivers attempt to find the quickest channel of traffic so it’s important to keep a watchful eye out for blind spots when changing lanes. Make sure not to drive in red bus lanes while they’re in operation, usually between 06:00–10:00 and 15:00–20:00, as it’s likely you’ll be issued with a fine.
  • It’s recommended to plan around rush hours of traffic, which occur in North Sydney from 07:00–09:30 and 16:00–19:00. Delays can particularly be expected on the M1 in both directions and it’s smart to allow additional time to reach your destination. Congestion on the Pacific Hwy is worst around the intersection with Miller St.
