Top Hire Car Tips in Hobart

Hobart is the largest city in Tasmania and a great point to start your adventures from. Here are some of our top tips when driving in Hobart:

  1. Consider booking your hire car once you know your travel dates to avoid missing out on your preferred vehicle type. Hobart’s peak travel seasons are during the Australian Summer (December - February).
  2. Hobart’s CBD has plenty of on-street parking and more than 2000 short-term parks starting from AUD$6/day. Always check the signed time limits before leaving your vehicle to avoid a fine.
  3. Tasmania is home to native Australian wildlife, so when driving, slow down and keep an eye out for wildlife crossing roads.
  4. If visiting during Winter, talk to your car hire company about any extra needs for driving in snow or icy conditions.
  5. If driving during peak hour traffic times on weekdays, factor in additional time to get from A to B. Peak hours are generally early mornings from 8:00am to 9:00am and early evenings from 5:00pm to 6:00pm.
