Discover and experience the ACT with a reliable hire car

Winding Road north of Canberra, Australia.

Home to the Australian capital of Canberra, the Australian Capital Territory — or ACT — is located midway between Australia’s two largest cities, Melbourne and Sydney. While both Canberra and the ACT are excellent destinations in their own right, this location makes it a perfect choice for exploring the surrounds by hire car.

With Canberra International Airport providing easy access to the city, it couldn’t be easier to start — or finish — your rental car holiday in the ACT. Aside from Australia’s house of government, the city is rich in museums, galleries and other worthwhile attractions, and while it easy to get around by public transport, a rental car delivers unrivalled flexibilty and ease to explore.

Deciding on hiring a car is one thing, but finding the right hire car for you is a whole other question, and this is where VroomVroomVroom is here to help.

We work with Australia’s most respected car hire suppliers, and collate all of their rates into one space for you to choose from. With VroomVroomVroom you can browse live rates from Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, East Coast Car Rentals, Enterprise, Europcar, Hertz, No Birds, Sixt, and Thrifty, and sort the results by location, price, vehicle type and more. The whole process of searching, sorting and booking can take as little as two minutes, and our best of class customer support is just a call away should you need assistance.

VroomVroomVroom takes the pain out of hiring the right car for your holiday in Canberra and the ACT, we free you up to concentrate on planning the where and the when of your holiday rather than the how.

Where in the ACT to explore with a rental car

When it comes to deciding where to explore in and around Canberra, you’re spoilt for choice. Canberra is the closest major Australian city to the country’s snow fields, so if you’re a skier, you’re in the right place. If you’re more interested in Australia’s beautiful beaches, Pacific coast centres including Merimbula and Wollongong are only a few hours away by hire car. Canberra also makes for the perfect destination to break up a longer road trip — say between Sydney and Melbourne — and there are no shortage of destinations worth incorporating into your road trip. Rural centres including Goulburn, Wagga Wagga, and Yass are all worth a visit. While you can easily pick up your hire car at Canberra Airport, it is also easy to pickup at other Canberra suburbs including Braddon, Fyshwick, and Kingston.

If you’ve got the time but are not sure where to go, take a look at our collection of Australian Capital Territory road trips to get some ideas of where it might appeal to you.
