Guide to a Successful Cairns Car Hire Experience

Reserve Your Vehicle In Advance

Plan ahead and book in a car rental as soon as possible to avoid missing out. This is because, in the course of the peak seasons or a few ongoing exclusive events, the supply of hire cars in the region might be limited.

Rent With A Debit Card Rather than A Credit Card

If you have the option, be sure to use a credit card as an alternative to a debit card. When you utilize a credit card, you will have to pay an additional 2% surcharge in addition to your car hire charges. Additionally, you are demanded to pre-authorise an amount as much as your chosen excess on your credit card as a type of security deposit. Your credit has no surcharge for the pre-authorisation. This amount of money would be ‘held up’ by your financial institution, and it will take your banking company a little bit of time to discharge this money back to your account.

Minimize Your Responsibility

Regardless of how cautious you are, in some cases, accidents do occur. We suggest you apply for our Premium Reduction Waiver to minimise your liability. Provided that you do not violate any traffic laws or ordinances to involve yourself in a car accident, or violate any terms and conditions of the rental contract, our PRW would substantially restrict the number of damages you will have to pay.

Stipulate Other Drivers

If you are planning to have more than just one person driving the vehicle, kindly identify any additional driver(s) that will be operating the vehicle. In the case of a collision, if the operator of the rental car is not identified in our agreement, any PRW obtained would be invalid.

Allow More Time Throughout Peak Seasons

To prevent hold-ups, organise properly to give yourself some buffer time for picking up and returning your rental car, particularly during the peak seasons. At peak times, it might take much longer than anticipated to await your time to get assisted at our office. Aim to choose an appropriate pickup or drop-off time to give yourself more flexibility so that you do not need to race to the airport or other places.

Follow and Comply with The Traffic Rules

Traffic Violations are very expensive and inconvenient. Be sure to learn the traffic laws in Cairns and throughout all of Australia.

Pay Your Parking & Fines

It helps to learn in advance where you can park your rental car. Always remember to pay your parking fees. Do not park unlawfully and if you regretfully get a fine, please pay promptly to prevent additional consequences or fines.

Child and Car seat

According to the age of your child vacationing with you by car, by law, you might need either a child seat or a car seat for your little one. A front/rear-facing baby seat is appropriate for an infant weighing as much as 18kg. While a booster seat is ideal for a young child weighing between 14kg to 26kg. Both the baby and booster seats are available for hire from All Day Car Rentals.

Required Age & Surcharge

To hire and drive our rental car in Cairns, you must possess a valid appropriate driver’s licence and be at least 21 and not over 80 years old. There won’t be any young driver surcharge if you are between 21 and 24 years old. The excess however is $200.00 higher when reduced down from $3000.00.

Where To Take A Rental Car In Cairns

Cairns is a beautiful part of Australia, home to many natural attractions and cultural landmarks. During your trip to Cairns, make sure you check out Kuranda, a mountain village known for the Kuranda Scenic Railway and the Skyfall Rainforest Cableway which offers gorgeous views over the ocean. If you want to relax while you’re here, spend an afternoon enjoying the sandy beaches of Palm Cove or enjoying a swim in Cairns Lagoon. If you want to explore more of the natural beauty around Cairns, Josephine Falls is an absolute must-see.

There are plenty of exciting options for travellers who want to go off-road with a 4WD or ute hire, too. Turn off the Kennedy Highway between Kuranda and Mareeba towards Emerald Creek Falls to do the Mt. Haig Circuit, also known as the Tinaroo Range Roads. This gorgeous route will take you near Emerald Creek, a natural stream that flows through the local rainforest. The Wooroonooran National Park is also home to plenty of wet tropics wilderness roads including Maple Road. This drive is perfect for campers and adventurers looking to get away from the sounds of the city and explore Queensland’s wilder side.



Do I need to pay any extra fees when I rent a car?

When you rent a car from us, the price you see is the price you pay, with no invisible extras added to your bill at the last minute. However, if you accumulate any parking fines or tolls during the period of your rental, you’re responsible for paying these yourself.

When can I drop my rental car off?

Our regular office hours are 8 am to 5 pm on weekdays and 8 am to 2 pm on weekends, and you can drop your rental car off with us any time between these hours. if you’d like to drop your vehicle off outside of these hours, simply let us know and we can arrange for out-of-hours drop-off.

What are the requirements for renting a car?

At All Day Car Rentals, we require all drivers to be at least 21 years old and have a valid, full diving license. We also require a valid and accepted credit or debit card at the time of rental. This is to ensure that you have sufficient funds to pay for your vehicle rental with us.
