KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Blacktown

  • If you're travelling with children to Blacktown, keep in mind that Australian car seat regulations apply. For children between 4 and 7 years old, an approved booster seat or a forward-facing child car seat is necessary. Infants need a rear-facing car seat, while children from 6 months to 4 years old require a forward-facing or rear-facing child car seat. All car seats must adhere to the Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 1754 and be equipped with the appropriate harness. You can usually hire a car seat along with your Blacktown hire car if you don't want to bring your own.
  • Whether you’re looking for cheap car hire in Blacktown or a more luxurious experience, you'll need to have a full, valid driver's licence and be at least 21 years old. Please also note that if you're between 21 and 24, some Blacktown car hire companies may add a young driver surcharge to your hire car, which will increase the amount you pay per day. To avoid any surprises, it's best to compare different hire options through KAYAK and read the terms and conditions carefully before making a final booking.
  • If you love a good road trip, cheap car hire in Blacktown is a great way to explore New South Wales. Nattai National Park is around 115 km south of Blacktown, featuring plenty of walking trails, camping spots and vantage points from which you can appreciate Nattai Gorge. Around a 250 km drive northwest of Blacktown, you’ll find Wollemi National Park, where you can camp, kayak on the Colo River and explore the natural glow worm cave.
  • With interesting pockets spread across a vast area, hiring a car in Blacktown will let you see all of this multicultural suburb at your own pace. Having a hire car also opens up the possibility of easily accessing beaches north and south of Sydney’s CBD that would otherwise require a combination of trains and buses into the city and then back out. Driving to Sydney Zoo from Blacktown takes roughly 10min while a bus requires around 30min. Whether you’re planning to visit Featherdale Sydney Wildlife Park, Raging Waters or Blacktown Showground, a hire car will let you pack everything you need for a long day.
  • The reception desks of hire companies at Sydney International Airport (SYD) are located in the Arrivals Hall of Terminal 1. A shuttle service is available to travel from Terminal 2 and 3, with hire car signage indicating which direction to follow. Vehicles are found directly opposite Terminal 1, on the ground floor of the multi-storey car park P7. A hire car will help you avoid a taxi fare from Sydney International Airport to Blacktown, which lasts about 1h and costs approximately A$ 80.
  • Use GPS navigation to plan out your journey as Blacktown has many one-way streets, which can cause headaches for drivers who are unfamiliar with the area. Buses are prevalent on Sydney roads and you need to keep an eye out as they pass quickly along designated lanes. There are many toll roads around Blacktown, so you should follow the signage above lanes to ensure you don’t accidentally get stuck on one.
  • Peak hour traffic is worst between 07:00–09:00 and 16:00–19:00 in Blacktown. The Great Western Hwy is particularly congested moving outbound during the afternoon and evening. The intersection of Sunnyholt Rd and Main St can see cars backed up, though it doesn’t need to be avoided as traffic flows through rather quickly.
  • Book your car hire in Blacktown at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact car hire in Blacktown are around 59% cheaper than other car types, on average
