Why rent a car in Darwin with

At, we negotiate with a number of car hire companies in Darwin to secure cheap prices and exclusive rates you won’t find anywhere else. Some of the brands we deal with include Europcar, Bargain Car Rentals and Thrifty. Tell us when you need a car using the simple search form, and in a few seconds we will compare prices across a range of cars — from people carriers to convertibles. You can even filter the results to quickly find the car which best suits your requirements. Our aim is to make car rental in Darwin as simple and stress-free as possible.

Top Tips

  • Once you’ve left the Darwin area, petrol stations can be few and far between. Make sure you carry a jerry can full of fuel just in case your tank runs low.
  • Darwin is an easy city to drive around, with free-flowing traffic. There is plenty of parking in the centre, but on-street parking must be paid for at a meter.
  • Kangaroos and cattle can be an issue in more rural areas, especially at night. If one comes in your path, break hard and don’t swerve.

Which companies offer best value in Darwin?

Thrifty often have special offers on their cars, where you can get additional drivers included in the price — saving you money if you want to split the driving with someone else. You can also see the ratings and reviews from previous customers next to each listing, giving you an insight into how each company compares in terms of value for money. After all, we think being impartial is the best way to be.

Day trips from Darwin

Kakadu National Park: Less than a two-hour drive away is the Kakadu National Park. This beautiful park takes in a part of the north coast, estuaries, floodplains, billabongs, rocky ridges and stone planes. You can hike and bike through this magnificent wilderness, or enjoy the rich aboriginal culture and their rock art. But, whatever you do, don’t swim in the sea, rivers or billabongs as they are full of crocodiles.

Crocosaurus Cove: Located in Darwin itself is Crocosaurus Cove — a crocodile park that allows visitors to get up close and personal with these ancient reptiles. Crocosaurus Cove has some of the largest saltwater crocodiles in the country, as well as the most comprehensive display of Australian reptiles. For the ultimate experience, you can swim with the crocs in the ‘Cage of Death’ and take a selfie with a baby crocodile.

Mindil Beach: Only a 10-minute drive from Darwin city centre is Mindil Beach. This sandy cove is famous for its sunsets. Every Thursday and Sunday evening from the end of April to the end of October, locals and tourist alike descend onto this patch of sand to enjoy the spectacular golden sunsets and the Sunset Market. The market sells a mix of food and crafts. No alcohol is served but you can bring your own (just remember not to drink and drive). Swimming is forbidden as the sea is home to crocodiles and box jellyfish, both of which can be lethal to humans.
