Pros: Yes Staff was very friendly, apologised that the vehicle I had booked was not available, but gave me another vehicle which suited my reason for hiring the vehicle. I was offered a ‘Mine’ vehicle with reflector strips, but when I advised staff that I wanted a vehicle to travel to Cairns for my brother’s funeral, staff went out of their way to secure a vehicle similar to the one I had booked online Well done and very much appreciated.
Cons: Just to make sure what one books online makes it happen that way. It turned out well in the end. Thank you.

Top tips for hiring a car in Townsville

  • Hire a car in Townsville and cruise around the many attractions the North Queensland city has to offer at your own rhythm. Having your own car opens up the option of taking the ferry to Magnetic Island, which can be navigated from top to bottom in 30min. Local buses are infrequent and don’t reach isolated corners, such as Florence Bay. Billabong Safari is also best accessed with a hire car, as alternative transport options include a costly taxi fare (roughly A$ 60) or coach transfer (about A$ 65).
  • Hire companies Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Europcar, Hertz and Thrifty can be found inside the Arrivals Area at Townsville Airport (TSV). The hire car park is only a short walk from the reception desks and thus no shuttle is required.
  • Random roadside breath testing is common in Townsville and all visitors should remember to stay below the 0.05 percent blood alcohol limit. Keep an eye out for mini convertibles known as barbie cars on Magnetic Island, as the small vehicles sit below standard height and can be missed in blind spots. Townsville attracts a lot of cyclists when the sun is out and drivers should remember to stay at a safe distance of at least 1.5 m. Be careful when driving across bridges during the wet season, as flooding can block crossings.
  • Traffic is rather pleasant throughout the day in Townsville and causes nowhere near as much congestion as major cities across Australia. Douglas Arterial Rd and Bruce Hwy can experience significant traffic on weekends and public holidays as travellers make their way along the coast. Townsville’s central shopping district, including Flinders St and The Strand, are busiest in the late afternoon between 16:00–18:00.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Townsville for $45 or less
  • Book your car hire in Townsville at least 4 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Townsville are around 9% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Economy car hires in Townsville are around 25% cheaper than other car types, on average
