Car rental rates in Darwin

Australia’s smallest capital city, multicultural Darwin is the capital of the Northern Territory and well worth a visit, with museums, cultural attractions, and a vibrant food scene. Outside the city centre, travellers can visit some of the country’s most spectacular natural attractions, a few of which lie within easy driving distance of Darwin.


Darwin enjoys a tropical climate, with the dry season running from roughly May to October and the wet from November to April, and each of the two seasons offer promising reasons for visiting. Regardless of when you plan to visit, VroomVroomVroom makes booking a hire car in Darwin easy. Search, compare and book with our reliable and affordable options from Australia’s leading hire car companies.

Local expert tips for hiring a car in Darwin

  • Kilometre limits

    Cars hired in Darwin may come with a limit on how many kilometres can be driven per day for free. A per-day limit of 100 km is common, with additional kilometres attracting a per-kilometre surcharge of anything from $0.25 to $0.37 per km, excluding taxes. Learn more about limits on hire car kilometres driven.

  • Peak hour traffic

    If hitting the road during peak hours times, allow additional time to get to your destination. In Darwin, there is often more traffic from 7:30 AM - 8:00 AM and 4:30 PM - 5:00 PM on weekdays.

  • Parking discounts and pre-booking offers

    Parking in Darwin’s CBD is plentiful with free untimed parking on weekends. Weekday parking starts at AUD$1.30/hr.

  • Right vehicle for roadtrip

    If you’re driving onwards from Darwin to explore more of the Northern Territory, check with your hire car provider for suggestions on the best type of vehicle for your trip. Some cars are not suitable or allowed on unsealed roads.

  • Simplify hiring a car

    You can use your interstate or overseas driver's licence for up to three months and must carry this with you at all times. If your overseas license isn’t in English, you should also carry an International Driving Permit.

  • Get ready for your trip

    Always drive to the conditions. For example, drive slower if it is raining.
