KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Proserpine

  • Booking cheap car hire in Proserpine is a great option for anyone planning on heading to the beach during their stay. With a car, you can pack all your gear and head down to the beach without navigating busy public transport. This is especially useful if you need to bring bulky gear like surfboards (don't forget to add roof racks to your booking). Airlie Beach is a nearby option, but your Proserpine hire car will open up Queensland's entire eastern coastline to you. Destinations like Cairns, Townsville and Brisbane can all be accessed via the A1 Highway. Plus, you can explore Queensland's many national parks and the famous Daintree Rainforest.
  • Most car hire companies in Australia will allow you to pay with either a debit or a credit card. If you prefer to use a debit card, you'll need to make sure you have either a Visa or a Mastercard. Additionally, some companies will require a higher security deposit if you use a debit card – something to keep in mind if you want cheap car hire in Proserpine. You'll also need to present your driver's licence. If you want to add additional drivers, they'll need to show their licences as well. The name on the card you use for payment should match the name on the primary hirer's licence.
  • If you're driving with young children in Proserpine, you'll need to have child restraints or booster seats appropriate for their size. This is mandatory for all children under seven and children over seven who aren't tall enough to use an adult seatbelt. While you can provide your own child seat, if you're visiting from overseas, note that your seat must meet Australian and New Zealand standards. If you're unsure, it might be easier to add child seats to your booking. Most Proserpine car hire companies can provide these for an additional fee.
  • Hiring a car in Proserpine affords the comfort of country hospitality with the freedom to explore the Whitsunday Region at your own pace. Travelling by car will also allow you to see the dense sugar cane fields that surround the city, which can otherwise be missed on direct bus services. The drive to tourist hotspot Airlie Beach is only 15min by car, while it takes closer to 45min by public transport. Remote destinations such as Cedar Creek Falls and Whitsunday Crocodile Safari can only be reached with your own hire car or with private tours, since there's no public transport available.
  • Car hire companies Hertz, Budget, Avis and Europcar have offices within the main terminal building at Proserpine Airport (PPP). As it’s a small regional airport servicing only a few airlines, the car park is easy to navigate and you can walk to your hire car easily.
  • Watch out for wildlife when driving on rural roads around Proserpine, as kangaroos and echidnas are known to wander after sunset. Traffic can be irregular in the area and it’s recommended to switch on your headlights even when driving during the day. If you plan on going off road and exploring the surrounding beaches, ensure tyre pressure is adequately adjusted and you are aware of low and high tides. Follow the tracks of previous cars on beaches to avoid getting bogged.
  • As a rural town, Proserpine doesn’t experience enough traffic congestion to force you to adjust your travel plans. Be mindful that major arterial roads, including Bruce Hwy and Shute Harbour Rd, that link destinations across the region attract plenty of tourists on weekends and holiday periods. Set off early in the morning if you are making your way to Airlie Beach or Conway Beach as traffic will build once the day heats up.
  • Book your car hire in Proserpine at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Proserpine are around 4% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pickup was excellent, drop-off was super busy. There was no running through with pictures of car for existing damage check etc., which I have had with all other car hires so I was a little apprehensive of issues, however all turned out well. I was not aware that this was a European car, set up for euro driving, in Australia. Hence I had issues with windscreen wipers and indicators. Also the lights were a problem, I did end up with a flat battery due to not realising parkers were on, I thought it was off, the off button on the steering wheel didn't turn to off, and when locked the car it clearly also didn't auto turn lights off. Last comment was that I did not realize that the cost when I booked was in USD?! So it cost $120 more than I expected Otherwise nice to drive, thanks
