KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Tamworth

  • Tamworth car hire allows you to freely explore the city's rich heritage, drive to some epic outdoor adventure spots or head to various arts and culture complexes in the city and peruse their collection. You don't have to deal with trying to figure out the public transport system. You don't have to pay high fees for local taxis or worry about choosing the right taxi app. Car hire in Tamworth is a cost-effective and convenient way to move around the city.
  • If you're flying into Tamworth, the last stop on your trip will be Tamworth Regional Airport (TMW), an ideal place to hire a car. Roughly five major car hire companies operate out of Tamworth Airport, and their company desks are in the arrivals hall. Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz and SIXT offer a range of cars to suit your needs.
  • This regional city offers a lot more space than in major cities in Australia, and with fewer people, there isn't much traffic. During the morning, roughly between 07:30 and 8:30, things can be slower due to the work and school commute, and the same thing in the afternoon around 17:00. You may have a harder time finding parking at shopping centres and recreational facilities over the weekend, but the city is walkable and you could find parking down the road.
  • There isn't much difficulty with driving a car hire in Tamworth, except that January, February and March can be very hot and a little more uncomfortable in a car. The International Country Music Festival is also held in January, which is when the city is at its busiest; this affects the flow of traffic and the ability to find parking.
  • Book your car hire in Tamworth at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • What’s the speed limit in Tamworth?

    Back in 2020, there was a move to change the speed limit on several streets in the CBD due to reckless driving. Instead of 60 km/h, there are 13 streets in the city centre with a speed limit of 40 km/h. Be aware of the signage and pavement markings indicating these speed limits and stick to them. Standard city streets have a speed limit of 60 km/h, while streets in unbuilt areas typically have a speed limit of 110 km/h. There are certain highways further out with a speed limit of 130 km/h, and this increase will be indicated through signage. Certain schools will have their own speed limits, so be on the lookout for these signs.

Signposts will reflect whether the parking is free or paid, and you can pay for parking using one of the CBD's display parking machines or through the Easypark app. If you're spending a long time in Tamworth, consider picking up a monthly parking permit at the Council Customer Service Centre, to save on costs. There is also parking available in privately owned car parks, though these will usually cost much more than council parking.
