Top Tips for Hiring an SUV in Townsville

  • If you wish to enjoy a Townsville tour without the limitations of public transport, be sure to book a Townsville SUV hire. Additionally, hiring a vehicle has other merits, as buses do not access all of Townsville's attractions. For example, driving is the ideal way to visit the city's crown jewel, the Strand. The short trip from the city centre to the Strand lasts about 5min. You can walk along the bay's blue waters as the children savour fun at the onsite Strand Water Park. If you wish to cuddle a koala, drive your SUV to Billabong Sanctuary, around 15min away by car. You can also learn about Townsville's history and its part in the Second World War at Jezzine Barracks. The site is about 8min away if driving.
  • Flights to Townsville land at Townsville Airport (TSV). Since there is a single terminal building in the airport, you will easily locate the car hire centre whether you travel via an international or domestic flight. Townsville SUV hire firms have desks in the arrivals hall, on the ground floor. If touring the city during summer, reserve your hire vehicle before travelling, as the demand is usually high. Early bookings are possible through KAYAK. Once you land, pick up your car at the end of the arrivals area.
  • Townsville's streets are wide enough to accommodate an SUV. However, you may have to cope with a few challenges as you cruise around the city. There are numerous young drivers on the road who may disregard road rules. Be ready to make emergency brakes as some drivers may suddenly change lanes without indicating or drive at speeds above the allowed limit. Tailgating is common in Townsville, and the city's cycling culture is also strong. Be alert, as bike riders will occasionally overtake you.
  • Townsville traffic is lighter than that in other Australian cities. The rush hours, which occur at about 06:00 and 18:00, last approximately 2 hours. Expect congestion on major motorways such as the Bruce Highway. There is also some traffic congestion on Woolcock Street for drivers getting into the city centre in the morning. Other affected roads include Ross River Road, Dalrymple Road and Sturt Street. Note that congestion mainly affects areas in the CBD. Country roads are usually clear throughout the day.
  • 25% of our users found an SUV hire in Townsville for $84 or less
  • Book your SUV hire in Townsville at least 5 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • May is typically the cheapest month to hire an SUV in Townsville, with prices around $67 per day. The most expensive month is August, with average prices of $120 per day.

FAQs About Hiring an SUV in Townsville

  • Which is a reliable SUV to hire in Townsville?

    Whether you are planning to tour Townsville's outdoor sites or the city centre attractions, you can find a reliable and affordable vehicle. Townsville SUV hire companies have cars like the Mitsubishi Outlander, which is ideal for those travelling in a group of five. The vehicle's boot can accommodate two suitcases, making the car a great transit means when taking a camping trip. If you prefer a more compact SUV, try the Nissan Juke. Its seating capacity and boot space match the Outlander but it costs less.

  • What is the speed limit in Townsville?

    If you can't spot a road sign indicating the legal speed limit, drive at 50 kph. Authorities in Townsville will not let you free because you didn't know the speed limit. However, you can generally drive at 100 kph on motorways and countryside roads.

  • Where can I park an SUV in Townsville?

    In Townsville city centre, you can park an SUV for free for 15min. Beyond this duration, you must pay at the parking meters near the parking spot. Still, you may not leave your vehicle for more than 2 hours in the CBD. If you need some free parking, check out Leichhardt Street's corner. There is also all-day free parking at Dean Street and Flinders Street.

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.
