Which airports do we cover?

Economy Car Hire is ready to help you no matter which part of Australia you’re in. The list of Australian airports we cover is comprehensive and includes:

Brisbane Airport – Head to Brisbane and start exploring the beautiful capital of Queensland and its surrounding areas. Brisbane is close to both the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.  It’s also just a stone’s throw away from Bribie Island National Park – swimming, cycling or just taking a walk along lush sands, can all be enjoyed here.

Melbourne Airport – Formula One fans should know Melbourne very well. It’s usually the opening race of the new season and always throws up some great racing. The capital of Victoria State, Melbourne offers a wide variety of sights and attractions to explore whilst Down Under.

Sydney Airport – Always a glorious sight on New Year’s Eve, Sydney is a sightseer’s paradise. There’s the world renowned Sydney Opera House to visit, or the Harbour Bridge, which dominates the city’s landscape. Head to Taranga Zoo and not only will you see an array of unique wildlife, but you will also enjoy some of the best views over Sydney and its peaceful harbour.

Canberra Airport – Many people forget that Canberra is the capital city of Australia, but you won’t forget your visit to this extraordinary city. There are some fantastic galleries and museums if you want to brush up on your culture and some wonderful restaurants where you can sample the finest Australian cuisine. The Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve is a must-see, while the surrounding mountains of Canberra also hold a special place in the hearts of Australia’s Aboriginal people.

We can also provide car hire in locations such as Surfers Paradise, Adelaide, Port Douglas, and Launceston.

What to see in Australia

If you’re looking for a road trip, you’ve come to the right place. Australia’s vastness provides the perfect opportunity for the trip of a lifetime with so much to see and do.

You could hit the road and explore Australia’s stunning and varied coastline. From bright coral reefs on the west coast, to the cliffs of the east, you’ll find something to take your breath away. Take a drive along Queensland’s Sunshine Coast or work your way round Tasmania’s beautiful coastline.

If you’d prefer to marvel at the contrasting landscapes, visit New South Wales’ vineyards and take a balloon trip over this gorgeous landscape. Alternatively, head out towards the Outback and explore the real Australia. Just make sure you avoid some of the continent's more dangerous residents.
