KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Kununurra

  • Drink driving offences are taken seriously in Western Australia, and local law enforcement officers are known to conduct regular breath tests on drivers in Kununurra to ensure road safety. So, while using your hire vehicle, it’s crucial to avoid driving when your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is greater than 0.05%. Any driver still on their provisional licence must maintain a strict 0.00% limit. Breaking Western Australia’s drink-driving laws can lead to devastating consequences, so it's generally best to avoid or carefully limit alcoholic beverages when you know you’ll be using your hire car.
  • If you're heading to the Kununurra area for a family road trip, it's important to note that Australian car seat laws will apply while you’re using your hire car. As a responsible parent, you should be prepared to bring or book an infant car seat for babies under six months old. Children between six months and four years old require a forward-facing or rear-facing seat, and those aged four to seven need a booster seat. These can be added to your Kununurra car hire booking, or you can bring your own with you from home.
  • Whether you’re looking for cheap car hire in Kununurra or a fully kitted-out 4X4, you’ll need to be at least 21 years of age with an unrestricted driver's licence. If you’re between the ages of 21 and 25, note that some hire agencies impose a young driver surcharge. Each car hire company in Kununurra has its own policy regarding young drivers, so comparing them through KAYAK is a great way to find the best deal. Pay attention to the overall hire price, their policy regarding young drivers, their required deposit and their general hire terms and conditions.
  • Kununurra is nestled in the far north of Western Australia, on the eastern edge of the Kimberley in the Northern Territory. Stretching out around the town, you will find rolling hills and scenic ranges, making it the ideal place to have your own set of wheels to explore. Located 3,040 km from Perth and 100 km from the nearest town (Wyndham), hiring a vehicle is a practical choice for many travellers, especially since there are plenty of opportunities for cheap car hire in Kununurra.
  • Kununurra is serviced by East Kimberley Kununurra Regional Airport (KNX). This is a single-terminal airport with just one building, housing check-in, departures, arrivals and baggage claim. Car hire kiosks can be found in the arrivals hall, and you have a number of options to choose from. The type of vehicle you hire will depend greatly on your plans in Kununurra, so it’s worth booking online ahead of time to ensure the vehicle you want is available at the airport. Car hire in Kununurra can be booked online through KAYAK.
  • Driving around Kununurra can be a strange experience for city drivers, as there are no traffic lights in town. Many intersections don’t even have signage. However, the usual Australian give-way rules apply. This means, if you are turning at an intersection in Kununurra, you must give way to cars going straight through the intersection and any vehicle on your right. If you are turning right, you must give way to any vehicles turning left.
  • Day trips to places like Wyndham include the sealed Great Northern Highway and also the unsealed Parry Creek and King River Roads. Companies providing car hire in Kununurra, like Budget and Thrifty, offer 4X4 vehicles that are allowed to traverse these roads. You just need to watch out for kangaroos around sunrise and sunset, plus oncoming road trains can create a draft strong enough to push you off the road.
  • Book your car hire in Kununurra at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Full-size car hire in Kununurra are around 12% cheaper than other car types, on average

I had ordered a ute as had a large amount of luggage. There were no utes left, so I was given a Prado as an alternative. We managed to lay the seats down to fit all the luggage in, but not our third passenger. No charge on the 'upgrade'. Was only a small inconvenience.
