Sydney Airport (SYD)

Airport Dr, Sydney NSW 2020, Australia

With two domestic terminals and one international terminal, Sydney Airport is a real hub for air travellers from around the world.

Hiring a car from Sydney Airport is a great way to get in to the city and explore its suburbs. By taking the shortest route (via the M1, a mere 12km from Sydney), it only takes 16 minutes (without traffic) to drive into the heart of the city: but don’t stop at Sydney, as New South Wales (NSW) is jam-packed with excellent driving locations. To the west of Sydney you have the Blue Mountains, to the south are Wollongong and the National Parks around Canberra, and north you will find Newcastle (and some of the best coastline in the world!).

Due to the large number of driving opportunities and the 38 million people passing through Sydney Airport each year, many car hire companies are located there to compete for business. Knowing who to hire with can be difficult, but our aim here at is to make comparing car hire deals at Sydney Airport quick and easy.

Finding a great deal

Our search process makes it easy to compare all major international brands (such as Hertz, Europcar and Thrifty), as well as local Australian firms like East Coast Rentals.

In a few clicks, you can see customer reviews and company ratings, and find out how each company compares in terms of their service. These reviews are provided by our customers and offer impartial help and advice — assisting you in your decision.

If you’re keen to avoid hidden fuel charges, we recommend booking a car with a full-to-full fuel policy — refill the tank just before the end of the rental and you won’t pay any fuel charges at the counter when you drop the car off.

If you need any ‘extras’ for your hire car (such as a baby seat, child seat, GPS or additional drivers), you can request them when you book and we will tell you how much you have to pay for them.

Choice of cars

You will be spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing your perfect hire car! No matter what you are looking for, there is something suitable for you — if you want a car at the smaller end of the scale, consider an economy or compact car, or if you are travelling as a family, take a look at the intermediate, standard and full-size vehicles (which offer more space for both people and suitcases).

If style is your thing, a convertible or luxury car may be the right choice, while large groups will find plenty of room in the 7-and-9-seater people carriers and 12-seater minivans. You will find a wide range of both manual and automatic cars to pick from.

Don’t forget to use our search tools to narrow down the results and quickly find your ideal hire car.

Tips and advice

  • 1
    Your pick-up location will vary depending on which company you hire with. Some companies are based in the airport’s car rental centre or off-site, while others have their counter in the airport itself, giving you the simplest possible start to your holiday.
  • 2
    Booking a car from a company based off-site can be a great way of saving money.
  • 3
    The M1 (the motorway that goes right round Australia) actually passes underneath Sydney Airport, giving visitors easy access to the centre of Sydney as well as other places along the coast.
  • 4
    Most routes in to and out of Sydney Airport are well signposted, but if you are unfamiliar with the area, you may wish to request a GPS when booking your car.
  • 5
    Make sure you book a car with air conditioning if you are travelling between November and March, as this is when Sydney is at its hottest.
