KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Hornsby

  • Hornsby car hire makes travelling around Hornsby much easier. You will not have to keep checking the bus schedule or carry your luggage around. Explore the city at your pace and comfort. Additionally, having your own set of wheels is cheaper than paying for a taxi to your various destinations. If you want to take your children camping or for a picnic at the Crossland Reserve, you’d probably want a car to get there. The reserve is about a 20 minutes drive from the Hornsby city centre. Or explore Fagan Park, around a 30min drive away, and taste their popular fresh food.
  • Sydney Airport (SYD) is a nearby airport in Hornby. The car hire desks are at the T1 International Arrivals terminal and the T2 and T3 Domestic Arrivals terminals. After collecting your car key, head to the ground level of the multi-storey car park P7, opposite T1, to pick up your car. You may also book your car in advance online and possibly save some money, as it tends to be cheaper to book online than on site. Enjoy cruising along the M1 on your roughly 45 minutes drive to Hornsby in your hired car.
  • Always drive on the left in your car hire in Hornsby and give way to the right at roundabouts and intersections. You should also be on the lookout for jaywalkers, who may step on the road anytime. Watch out for the frequent motorcyclists on the highways, as they are fast and can be off-putting to a new driver. Regardless of where you are, pedestrians have the right of way.
  • Hornby city is in a very hilly area. Navigating the steep slopes may be difficult for a novice driver. Due to weather phenomena like landslides, floods or fires, some roads may be temporarily closed. You should update yourself on the closed roads in Hornsby before travelling, to avoid inconveniences. You may encounter traffic on Duffy Avenue, Esplanade and Chilvers Road during rush hours. Watch out while going through the intersection on Duffy Avenue, as the cars go straight across it without stopping.
  • Book your car hire in Hornsby at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy hire cars in Hornsby are around 60% cheaper than other car types, on average

The staff at the Hornsby location are kind, lovely, and amazing. Sylvia made it super easy to check out, while still giving some very necessary details. The gentleman that helped me check my car back in was lovely, as well.
