10.0 ExcellentApr 30 2018
Best value car rental company ever.Pros: Easy to deal with, convenient off site pick up and drop off and very reasonable rates. I would definitely use them again as cars were good and they are by far the cheapest car rental company I have ever used.Cons: Dropped off prior to opening time at 7am but didn't get loaded onto bus for 15 minutes. Maybe they could start work 15 minutes earlier to check cars so we can get to airport on time. Also, clients had to work out who should go on first bus to airport based on flight departure times. I think the staff could have organised this. Excess was $5500, we would like to pay a (very) small amount extra to reduce this to $5000 as this is what our travel insurance will cover.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 28 2018
Good valuePros: Pick up/drop off shuttle was great, car was clean and ready to go. Staff were helpful and friendly.Cons: Tried to change the name of primary driver prior to pick up and was told that I would have to make a whole new booking and that a similar vehicle was not available. I do not understand why the name could not simply be changed, and how my reserved vehicle was suddenly not going to be available. As a result we had to pay extra to have additional driver put on.
7.2 GoodNov 25 2017
Cons: Pickup and return are not at the airport

Pros: Manager, Mo, was great! He was responsive to a few concerns we had and was flexible with our situation. He also upgraded us for no charge to make up for having to wait at an empty kiosk.Cons: Someone hadn't turned up to their shift so when we arrived (an hour into their operating hours) no one was there. However, the manager soon arrived and treated us like VIPs.

Wouldn't honor my reservationCons: Wouldn't honor my reservation price and tried to charge me over 5X the rate I confirmed with Kayak. She said, "its Christmas week, I can't honor that price." I had to take a taxi into the city and make other arrangements. Don't use Kayak for international reservations.
4.0 OkayOct 2 2016
Poor quality of vehiclePros: Compact car and efficiency of fuelCons: Poor condition of vehicle. Vehicle made rattling noise from engine, which made us insecure of car breaking down. When defrost / a/c system was powered an extremely loud and disturbing sound came from what I imagine is the compressor. This last condition resulted in lots of vibration in the car when idle.

Top tips for renting a car in Hobart

  • It is highly advantageous to rent a car in Hobart as the public transportation in the city is somewhat limited. The main form of transit available is the public bus, but for groups or families visiting Hobart this likely won’t be as efficient or comfortable as a rental car. Also, if you plan on visiting any of the neighboring attractions such as Wellington Park (21 km or 13 miles away), it is often cheaper to drive there yourself rather than joining a tour.
  • Looking to pick up a rental car upon landing in Hobart so you can begin your Tasmanian journey? If your flight is arriving at Hobart International Airport, you will find all the airport’s various rental car counters located in the Arrivals section of the airport.
  • Driving in Hobart is a simple and easy affair for the most part, but there is one thing to remember when heading out onto the roads outside the city -- namely, the winding roads. Many of the roads and highways can be surprisingly curvy as they move up and down the hills, so caution is advised. This is especially the case in difficult weather conditions such as rain or snow.
  • Rush hour in Hobart starts off in the morning around 6:30 a.m. and lasts until 9:00 a.m. throughout the work week. The afternoon traffic picks up around 4:00 p.m. and finishes shortly after 6:00 p.m. Most of the streets don’t feature too much congestion but Davey Street is one to avoid if possible.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Hobart for $24 or less
  • Book your rental car in Hobart at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Hobart are around 10% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Standard rental cars in Hobart are around 47% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • On average a rental car in Hobart costs $222 per week ($32 per day).

  • On average a rental car in Hobart costs $950 per month ($32 per day).

  • Smaller vehicles such as sedans, coupes, and compacts are certainly some of the best options for would-be renters visiting Hobart. The city’s central business district has a few one-way streets that make smaller cars a more attractive option for many drivers. Also, the smaller parking spaces typical of the city’s streetside parking may not fit larger vehicles.

  • The speed limit starts off at 30 km/h (18 mph) in residential areas and up to 50 km/h (31 mph) on urban roads. Out on the highways and motorways, the speed limit jumps up to 100 or 110 km/h (62 or 68 mph) depending on the size of the road and whether it is divided or not. On gravel roads, which are found outside of the city in smaller communities, the speed limit is 80 km/h (50 mph).

  • Gas prices are an average of AU$1.50 ($1.11 USD) per liter of gas in Hobart. In gallons that is the equivalent of AU$5.68 ($4.19 USD) per gallon of gas. Check what time of year you will be traveling and needing to rent a car as gas prices will also change depending on holiday periods.

  • The downtown area of Hobart has plenty of parking garages and lots available. Drivers should have no issue finding parking even during the busiest parts of the day. Outside of the city center, though, streetside parking is often the best option as the streets in the peripheral areas tend to be on the more spacious side.

  • Finding the right price, understanding the add-ons and staying up to date with policy changes can be a challenge. That’s why KAYAK has produced the ultimate guide to renting a car to help you cut though the jargon and make the right choice for your rental car. Find tips and insights for how to book your rental, what car rental insurance you’ll need, how to deal with a car rental agency and what extra fees to expect (and avoid!).
