KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Armidale

  • Armidale is nestled in the Northern Tablelands of New South Wales, and it’s ideally placed for road trips through the lush Hunter Valley or along Waterfall Way to the beaches of Raleigh and Coffs Harbour. The city is small but many of its attractions, like New England Regional Art Museum, are situated on the outskirts. Car hire in Armidale is the ideal way to enjoy everything the city has to offer.
  • Armidale Airport (ARM) is only 6 km or so from the city centre. It has one terminal building that handles all arrivals and departures. You’ll find a wide range of companies offering car hire in Armidale in the arrivals lobby of the terminal building, and the kiosks are generally staffed to meet incoming flights. Booking online through KAYAK is a great way to save on fees and ensure the vehicle type you’re after is ready and waiting for you at the airport.
  • Many of the roads connecting Armidale to nearby regions are unsealed. For example, if you take the road trip from Armidale to the NSW central coast, you will likely head along Kempsey Road, which is a well-graded but unsealed road. It’s important to plan out your trips and make sure you stick to roads that are allowable with your Armidale car hire company. It’s also important to stick to the speed limits if you take one of these roads, as you’re likely to encounter native wildlife, and you may need to pull to the side for oncoming traffic.
  • Armidale is a city that experiences four distinct seasons, a rarity in Australia. Though this makes it a popular tourist destination, it also presents some challenges for drivers. Thunderstorms are common in spring and summer, often bringing with them destructive winds, flash flooding and hail. For this reason, it’s essential to keep an eye on the daily weather forecasts and ensure you seek shelter for yourself and your vehicle if a storm is on the way. If you get caught in a storm, use your fog lights, slow down and drive to the conditions. Following these guidelines will help you ensure you return your Armidale car hire in good shape.
  • Book your car hire in Armidale at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Armidale are around 65% cheaper than other car types, on average

I was left stranded in Armidale because I was not told I couldn't use my debit card or pay cash for the hire. resulting in me missing a very important meeting that had been planned and cancelled several times because of the pandemic. I feel totally discriminated by your company and won't be using your company or any other car hire company in the future. If I am in a country town I will drive no matter how far or if I am in the city I will use Uber. I am extremely disappointed and angry. You should have an alternative other than credit cards.
