If you're planning on heading out into the outback, you might want to drive a vehicle with a bit more ability to navigate challenging roads. The vehicles have extra traction, and more power when taking on inclines. Some drivers may also appreciate the extra storage space, particularly if you are travelling in a group.
It is important to note, however, that our suppliers do not allow their vehicles to be taken off sealed roads. So if you plan on any off-road driving you will need to seek out a specialist company. VroomVroomVroom has listed companies below that offer 4WD hire in Australia, as well as some off-road driving advice.
