KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Port Moresby

  • Whether you’re travelling for business or leisure, car hire in Port Moresby is a great way to get around this large, sprawling city. In the city itself, you can explore local attractions like Port Moresby Nature Park and National Museum and Art Gallery. If you’re in Papua New Guinea to hike the famous Kokoda Track, many people drive the 48 km out to Owers’ Corner, and then hike to Kokoda from there.
  • Port Moresby International Airport (POM) lies within the city limits, around 5-9 km from the heart of Port Moresby. It has an international and a domestic terminal, and this is where you’ll find kiosks for companies offering car hire in Port Moresby. It’s a good idea to pre-book your vehicle, especially if you want a specific vehicle type or you’re looking for cheap car hire in Port Moresby.
  • It’s important to keep in mind that Papua New Guinea’s towns, villages and attractions aren’t all connected by roadways. For example, if you’d like to visit Lae, Wewak, McAdam National Park or any other regions in the north, you won’t be able to drive there from Port Moresby. For this reason, it’s a good idea to map out your trip, so you know when you’ll be able to drive and when you’ll need to take a flight.
  • If you’re venturing outside the city limits of Port Moresby, it’s important to know that the roads are often in poor condition, making driving difficult at its best and at its worst, hazardous. The difficult conditions are intensified in the summer months by monsoonal downpours. If you plan on taking any trips outside of Port Moresby, you may be best served by selecting a 4X4. However, you’ll need to check with your Port Moresby car hire company as to whether they allow vehicles to travel on unpaved roads.

Hertz is most misleading because online fee $1,586.55AUD Hertz then withdrew from my credit card a further $1331.94AUD after I had returned car. This is criminal and worst experience with Hertz for working class.
