Location information for Cairns

Chic beaches and a cosmopolitan city center makes Cairns a good place to visit in Queensland, Australia for a holiday. The city mainly thrives with its tourist industry and it is a popular holiday destination among international tourists, particularly the Japanese, and that is obvious with several shops with signs also written in their language alongside their English names.

Because the city is nestled amidst a rain forest, Cairns makes a convenient gateway for visiting destinations like the Daintree and Kuranda. This makes it practical to arrange for car hire in Cairns Downtown while you are on a holiday. You can also use Cairns as a base for visiting Kuranda for a day trip or head to Mossman for a swim.

Downtown Cairns is small enough to explore on foot but if you have to go someplace else, cheap car hire in Cairns Downtown helps you save money and eliminates the need for public transport. Visit the Northern Beaches easily, head to the tranquil suburbs, or visit the coastal venues where you can enjoy a range of adventure sports like skydiving.

Car rental in Cairns Downtown lets you make the most of your holiday because with your own car, you can explore the local attractions according to your own schedule. See the Cairns Wildlife Dome or drive to the Daintree to explore the surroundings of an actual rainforest.

Cairns' nightlife is one of the most vibrant in Queensland so don't miss out on opportunities to spend evenings in its numerous bars and hip restaurants. There are also venues where you can spend laid-back evenings at, or you can simply visit the night markets of the Esplanade.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Car-Rentals.com the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
