KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Lismore

  • Car hire in Lismore is the best way to get around, as there are no trains or trams operating to connect you within or outside of Lismore. There are local bus services; however, they have limited routes and times, so having your own vehicle is a great way to ensure you get the most out of your time in Lismore. The trip from Ballina Byron Gateway Airport (BNK) to Lismore is almost half the time if travelling by car instead of by bus.
  • Your arrival into Lismore would be via Ballina Byron Gateway Airport, with multiple car hire offices on site. The airport is small, so you will easily find hire car companies as soon as you exit the arrivals area. Be sure to bring your licence, credit card and confirmation of your booking to the hire office. There are shuttle services to and from the airport if you have arranged to collect your car hire in Lismore.
  • Driving in Lismore is far less stressful than some other bigger cities. Generally, you will not have too much trouble with pedestrians or traffic, as while it is a popular place to visit, it doesn’t feel so overwhelming. If you are from interstate or overseas, be sure to have a look at New South Wales road rules to be clear on any differences they may have to your own location’s certain intersection or other road laws.
  • As Lismore is further inland from the popular coastal region, the traffic during your journey to and from the coast doesn’t usually have too many variants for peak hours like the bigger cities do. There are multiple roads into Lismore, which may be what helps lower the potential delays. Bad weather and accidents can, of course, occasionally cause delays.
  • Book your car hire in Lismore at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate hire cars in Lismore are around 69% cheaper than other car types, on average
