Our Conclusion

As you can see car hire prices in Australia varies & prices can go up & down on a daily basis so to try and show exactly how much is car hire in Australia we have compiled a list from the 7th August 2014 to provide with an idea of pricing information from state to state within Australia.

Please note that prices are subject to change on a daily basis & are only approximate.

It is worth taking the time to check the car rental prices thoroughly as we have noticed that it is cheaper to hire a car from Adelaide on a daily rate for a luxury vehicle than it is on a weekly rate. So before confirming your booking ensure you can negotiate with the car rental company.

We have not compared against the same rental car provider for each car rental location. We have based these on average prices due to the fact that not every company operate from all locations we have checked. Also note that some companies compete in different areas to provide pricing information and they sometime update there prices on an hourly basis.

Again booking a car from one specific area can be a lot cheaper from one operator simply because they have a percentage advantage in the market place, this could be due to several factors. For example: Comparing against any new upcoming car rental providers who are struggling to meet overheads against competitors who are already established, therefore it could be assumed they would be able to provide a more reasonable price offer.

We hope this provides the information you need, should you require any additional information then please do not hesitate to contact us.
