Top tips for hiring a car at Darwin airport

  • Darwin is the expansive capital of the Northern Territory in Australia and possibly the most sought-after destination in the region, with a plethora of things to do, activities to get involved in and sights to see. There's close to 700 km worth of driving around to do to get to all of the major sites and nearby cities. Car hire at Darwin International Airport (DRW) offers the ideal opportunity to explore all of these places without relying on public transport, while returning the vehicle to where you'll leave from.
  • One of the benefits of booking through KAYAK is finding a Darwin International Airport car hire with unlimited kilometres. With the wide open space of Darwin and the many kilometres between the city and some of the sights worth visiting, having a deal that limits the distance you can travel could be a dampener. Luckily, some companies offer unlimited kilometre deals that can easily be found through KAYAK.
  • Make sure you double-check the car for any scratches or dents before leaving the parking garage and make a note of any problems on the hire form before signing. Check the boot to make sure your car has a jack, a wheel wrench and a spare tyre, just in case. Car hire companies typically make sure of these things, but with the volume of cars going in and out of Darwin International Airport, things could be missed.
  • If you're concerned about the environment and looking for more sustainable ways to travel, Darwin International Airport car hire companies offer hybrid vehicles for you to choose from. These may cost a little extra, but they're also more fuel efficient and tend to cost less in the long run; plus, you'll be doing something to benefit the environment. Hybrid cars tend to be larger sedans or SUVs, which would suit a larger family.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire at Darwin airport for S$ 70 or less
  • Book your car hire at Darwin airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at Darwin airport

  • What are the requirements for hiring a car at Darwin International Airport?

    Hiring a car in Darwin is subject to the same requirements as the rest of Australia. You won't be able to pick up a car if you're under 21 or haven't had your licence for at least one year. If you're younger than 25, you'll usually be limited to a smaller range and incur an additional surcharge for your booking. You must have a valid form of identification and a valid credit card with your name on it. If you booked and paid online, the credit card owner must be present when picking up the car.

  • Where will I find my car hire at Darwin International Airport?

    Darwin International Airport is home to several car hire companies operating out of the airport. Finding the company desks is simple. All companies, including the major brands, have desks located in the main airport terminal as you pass through the luggage claim section. Once you've filled out the paperwork and arranged the car, you'll be escorted by one of the employees to the parking garage, where you'll do the final check on the car and be given the keys.

  • What amenities does the car hire centre at the airport offer?

    Although Darwin International Airport doesn't have a dedicated car hire centre with its own facilities, customers will have access to all of the amenities offered at the airport. These include toilets with baby-changing facilities, restaurants, cafes and more. The car hire at Darwin International Airport is located after luggage claim, so you won't have access to the amenities available inside the departures area. If you need to withdraw money at Darwin International Airport, there is one ATM available inside the terminal, downstairs near the domestic luggage claim area.

Pros:

It will cost you no less than $300 for a rental. I bought a flight once I arrived and they presented me with a rental agreement which was over 3x the cost of the rental agreement for which I had paid for.

The Customer Service professional at the front desk of Thrifty Car Hire - Darwin Airport was extremely courteous and helpful, explaining the hire process efficiently and gently. I felt as though I mattered and was pleased to also find a great, clean and comfortable car waiting for me in the designated Thrifty Car Park. I will totally use Thrifty at Darwin Airport again.

Kayak did not disclose that Budget car rentals charges users per km after a very low free distance allowance. This can easily double or triple the charges upon returning the car. Kayak should disclose these hidden fees when displaying the options.
