Top tips for hiring a car in Blue Mountains

  • If you want to hire a car in the Blue Mountains, you'll need to present a current driving licence and a credit card in your legal name. Ensure you have your licence at all times while on the road. Check with your selected car hire company whether other documentation is needed, such as proof of insurance.
  • Make sure that you follow the set road and traffic rules and regulations. You should be careful never to exceed the maximum speed limit, as displayed on roadside signs. The speed limit on major highways varies from 60 km/h to 100 km/h, while the speed limit is 50 km/h in most towns. Australia has very strict laws on drunk driving, with the acceptable blood alcohol content at under 0.05%. Police have the authority to stop any vehicle and breath-test the driver whenever and wherever they feel.
  • Drivers in the Blue Mountains are prohibited from driving and using a hand-held mobile phone consecutively. It’s also unlawful to call, text or receive a call before safely parking your vehicle. If you’re caught breaking this law, you might be heavily penalised. Australian law also requires all occupants of a vehicle to buckle up at all times. Babies and children should also be restrained in authorised child car seats according to height and weight.

    The Blue Mountains are unique because of the stunning scenery of rugged sandstone tablelands, breathtaking waterfalls, viewpoints and canyons. Jenolan Caves, another must-see attraction that adds to the Blue Mountains' allure, are right on the edge. Hiring a car enables you to explore all the breathtaking wilderness in its untamed glory. The roads are great and there are lots of free parking spaces and signage. While you might not be guaranteed to find parking in close proximity to your destination, you can park down the road if you don't mind a short walk. Your travel will be significantly easier if you have a GPS or navigation app on your phone.

  • What is driving like in the Blue Mountains?

    Most people travel here to explore the rugged nature, breathe in the fresh mountain air and simply experience the chilly winter cold. A good way to experience the intriguing attractions is by hiring a car; you can spend a few days sightseeing or simply dip in and go on day trips. The spectacular Blue Mountains area is only a few hours’ drive from Sydney. Get ready for an action-packed trip, as there’s so much to do and see in the area. There have been extensive roadworks over the past few years and the road is in excellent condition, with only a few steep sections between Lawson and Wentworth Falls. The drive is quite fine despite having to share the road with numerous trucks, tour buses and other vehicles. Just be aware that the varying speed limits are regularly enforced by the highway patrol police. All in all, don’t forget to carry plenty of drinking water if you'll be travelling in the summer, due to excess heat, and lots of clothing if you'll be travelling in the winter, due to the chilly cold.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in the Blue Mountains?

    In the Blue Mountains, you must be at least 21 years old to hire a car. While older car hirers generally apply for larger and luxury models, most Blue Mountains car hire companies allow young hirers to hire select models, such as economy and compact vehicles. Additionally, young car hirers may be charged a “young driver fee”, to cover the higher risk of accidents and other damages.
