Local expert tips for hiring a car in Wollongong

  • Watch your speed

    Ensure that you always observe the posted speed limit signs on the road. The speed limit at the intersection of Crown Street from Gladstone Avenue to Mangerton Road is now 50km/h in accordance with NSW speed zoning guidelines.

  • Peak hour traffic

    Avoid driving during morning and afternoon peak hour times, typically from 7am to 9am, and 3pm to 5pm, as most roads can become heavily congested right around the city centre.

  • Parking

    Parking in the council’s off-street metered car parks in Wollongong CBD is free and untimed before 8:30am and after 4:30pm on weekdays and free during weekends and public holidays.

  • Flexible one-way car rentals

    Planning to get a one-way car rental for an interstate trip? You can book a hire car in Wollongong and return it to another location. Just untick the “Return to the same location” option in our search form and select your preferred return location.

  • Simplify hiring a car

    Make hiring a car simple and stress-free with these helpful articles. Get up to speed on topics from SIPP codes and toll fees, to age restrictions, licence requirements, and more - learn more about hiring a car.

  • Save on fuel cost

    Before returning your hire car, make sure you have filled it to avoid any additional charges. To find the cheapest fuel in NSW, use our free fuel price comparison app.
