KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Geraldton

  • Electric cars are available for hire and can be a good choice for cheap car hire in Geraldton. That being so, some companies have installed EV car charging stations that are accessible to the public. There are fast-charging EV stations with payment facilities near the entrance to the Francis Street car park. If you don’t want to waste time when driving your hire car in Geraldton looking for charging stations, book your stay at hotels with charging stations. One example of this is The Gerald Apartment Hotel.
  • Geraldton car hire is available for drivers 21 years and older. An underage surcharge is applied to car hire for customers aged between 21 and 24 years by some car hire companies – something to keep in mind when looking for cheap car hire in Geraldton. Regardless, all drivers are required to provide a current and valid driver’s licence that’s been in use for one year or more and can use a credit or debit card, under their name, from a major company. If you’re not an Australian national, car hire companies require you to provide your domestic licence alongside an International Driver’s Permit (IDP) and your passport.
  • Driving your hire car in Geraldton can be hectic during peak traffic hours. From around 6 am to 9 am and 4:30 pm and 7 pm, some roads are heavily congested. Avoid routes like the Geraldton-Mount Magnet Road during these hours, to prevent wasting time on congested roads and getting to your destination late. Alternatively, we advise you to travel in the afternoon or plan your trip ahead and include time for potential traffic delays, pit stops, fueling and sightseeing. You can leave early in the morning and stay overnight at your destination rather than spending more time in traffic when driving back.
  • Perched on the coast of Western Australia, approximately 424 km north of Perth, Geraldton is an ideal destination for beach lovers. With Tarcoola Beach, Pages Beach, Champion Bay, Town Beach, Sunset Beach and more to explore, this is the ideal town to pick up a hire car. Car hire in Geraldton will free you up to cruise around at your leisure, taking in the coastal sights, enjoying watersports and perhaps even venturing inland to check out Hutt River Principality, Australia’s famous micronation.
  • Geraldton Airport (GET) lies around 10 km inland from the coastal town. There are some hangars and buildings used by charter companies and Royal Flying Doctor Service. However, for commercial flights, there’s just one terminal, referred to as "the general aviation terminal". Here, you will find kiosks for companies providing car hire in Geraldton, including Avis, Hertz, Budget and Thrifty. These are usually staffed to meet incoming flights. However, booking in advance through KAYAK can help you secure a better deal and ensure the vehicle you want is available.
  • Geraldton has a small CBD with a thriving cafe scene. Between the locals and the tourists, there’s generally quite a lot of foot traffic, so when you’re exploring the attractions in the city, it’s important to keep your attention on the road and drive cautiously. You’ll also be sharing the road with plenty of cyclists, so it’s important to give them as much room as you can and check your blind spots before turning or changing lanes.
  • As a coastal town in Western Australia, Geraldton can be prone to both cyclones and dust storms. Cyclones and tropical storms can create destructive winds, flash flooding and other hazards on the road. For this reason, it’s important to keep an eye on weather forecasts and pay attention to any warnings. Dust may interfere with visibility on the road, particularly if you take the inland routes to spots like Kalbarri or Hutt Lagoon. Fog lights can help when driving through dust, but in a severe dust storm, it’s best to pull off the road when safe to do so and wait it out.
  • Book your car hire in Geraldton at least 3 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Full-size car hire in Geraldton are around 14% cheaper than other car types, on average
