Reserve your Newcastle hire car before you arrive

Before you fly in to Newcastle Airport, be sure to book your car rental here. It will make life so much easier when you arrive. We help you quickly compare the latest deals from all of the top... expand
vehicle hire brands that operate in Newcastle, with all the specifications you need – from airport pick-up to passenger numbers, with our exclusive low-price guarantee.

It’s a tourism region on the rise, which means Newcastle Airport handles more than one million passengers each year. Located two hours north of the big smoke of Sydney, it’s the perfect place to land and pick-up your car rental quickly. It underwent a major development in 2005 and there are plans for a hotel complex to deal with the increasing passenger demand, but for now, it’s happily located on the east coast of Australia, with gorgeous beaches, National Parks, lakes and walks galore just a short drive away.

Car rental – we take away all the stress

With so many places to see in Newcastle, and the gorgeous Australian eastern coastline on your doorstep, vehicle hire is the last thing you want to worry about. Our constantly active and live rates allow you to book well in advance – the earlier the better – and jump behind the wheel as soon as you check out and collect your luggage.

The beauty of our site is we incorporate ALL of the top brands into our easy-to-use search engine. We have no desire to push you one way or the other – just select the best deal for you. After inputting travel details, click the yellow search button and your Newcastle vehicle hire options are right in front of you. There’s likely to be quite a few pages to choose from, so filter your selection with regards to size, fleet, class – or maybe you just want the cheapest deal, which is the first one you will see. 

Bag yourself a bargain

Our site prides itself on always delivering you the best deals. On our home page, you will see ‘Today’s top special offers’. These cover all the different hire companies, including Double Upgrades, free rental days and Double Frequent Flyer points. Bookmark our site in your favourites, so you don’t miss out. 

The following companies have rental desks within the airport terminal, near arrivals:
  • Avis
  • Budget
  • Europcar
  • Hertz
  • Redspot/Sixt
  • Thrifty
When you’ve locked in all of your details, it’s time to make your pick. Now although the prices may seem similar, with only a few dollars between them, use our handy summary to make your decision easier. Next to the green ticks, you will see the special additions to your deal, such as theft protection, collision damage waiver and free cancellation and amendments – which apply to most vehicles. We also focus on specifications, such as vehicle age, air-conditioning and availability. And if you want an SUV or a 4WD, just use the Filter by Class tool on the left-hand side of the home page. This also provides filters for fleet, transmission, number of travellers and availability.

But perhaps the biggest bonus is our fantastic customer service team. With extensive experience in the car rental business, they are always ready to answer your queries. Operating 24 hours a day on weekdays and 12 hours a day on weekends, you are in very safe hands. Also look out for our low-price guarantee. If you find a better deal online, for the exact same vehicle and itinerary, we will beat the price by a dollar and offer a 25% discount off DriveEasy Excess Cover.

Where do you want to go first?

You are literally on the easterly edge of Australia in Newcastle, so the beach option is an obvious one. Located on the Hunter River, temperatures can get very warm in summer, with mild winters. Bathers Way is a 5km walk that will take you to popular local beaches, with Stockton Beach a short trip on the ferry – although you can access it by hire car. But there’s plenty more to Newcastle than sunning yourself, with the stunning Cathedral Church of Christ the King, Newcastle Art Gallery and tourism favourite the Hunter Valley. Famous for its wine growing, Shiraz and Semillon are a speciality, although the Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon are not to be sniffed at!

Fantastic road-trip options include: Newcastle to Port Stephens- In less than an hour you can be enjoying stunning views and dolphin watch cruises. Newcastle to Sydney- The obvious choice, but you are only a few hours away from the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. One of the most spectacular cities in the world. Just get out on the open road and explore.

Be safe on the roads of Newcastle

Handy tips for every driver:
  • The roads are generally of a high quality, but do watch out for people slowing down to take in the gorgeous coastal scenery. They can be irritating.
  • Many Sydney residents travel north to escape the big city – do not be surprised if you are caught in heavy traffic during the summer months.
  • Plan your route. This is probably the most important piece of advice, as it’s easy to get lost in a new town.
  • Aussies drive on the left-hand side of the road, just like NZ and the UK.
  • There are mass regions of absolutely nothing in Australia. Don’t gamble on fuel and keep plenty of water at hand, to deal with the sometimes uncomfortably hot temperatures.
  • You require a valid driver’s licence – whether that’s an Australian one, an English one (valid for three months) or an international driving permit.

Time to hit the road

With our extensive support team behind you, at least you know the best in the business have taken care of your rental vehicle. And we know you can never predict what’s going to happen, so call our service team with any queries. But hopefully you won’t have any and your memories of Newcastle and Australia will last a lifetime!
