If you’re planning on hiring a car in Roma and using it as a base for some countryside trips, then a rental 4WD is perhaps a more prudent choice than a conventional rental car such as a SUV, sedan or hatchback. Do bear in mind that most hire cars are not permitted to be driven off-road. Keep an eye on your fuel gauge and always make sure you have plenty of water in your vehicle.
As with Western Australia, Queensland is home to some of the longest — and largest — trucks in the world, some of which can be as long as 60 metres in length, and they’ve well and truly earned their nickname of “road trains.” When overtaking one (always take care, regardless of what you are overtaking), bear in mind that overtaking a road train will take longer than overtaking a regular truck.
Queensland has very strict laws regarding the use of a smartphone while driving and the fines are high. It is illegal to hold a mobile phone in your hand, or have it resting on any part of your body while driving, and this applies even if you are stopped in traffic. Fines can be as high as AUD$1,078.
In Australia, people drive on the left hand side of the road — even if they are driving a rental car! It seems like a simple point, but if you’re not used to this, it can be an easy thing to forget — especially in moments of anxiety. Remember the cardinal rule: left is best.
In Queensland, the driver of a hire car and all passengers seven years and older must wear a seatbelt. It is the driver’s responsibility to make sure all passengers are wearing their seatbelt. Children under the age of seven must be in a properly fastened Australian Standard approved child restraint. Fines can be as high as AUD$1,078 per offence.
When we say this we’re not talking about you leaving your bags at Roma Airport, but rather, when you’re booking your hire car in the first place, don’t forget how much space you’ll need for your luggage. Some compact cars are, well, compact, and if you’re travelling with the family and all their bags, with all that open road time, you might find yourself appreciating a bit more space.
