Local operators also offer some great deals for cars of a variety of sizes, from small hatchbacks to large sedans and 4WDs.

Jam Jar Car Hire and All Car Hire are two local operators and Nautilus Limousines offer chauffeur driven luxury hire.

Driving north out of Port Douglas will take visitors to the beautiful Daintree Rainforest.
The coastal road to Cooktown beyond Port Tribulation is not suited for cars, so 4WD vehicle hire is advised if you intend to head out and explore the region.

Back in Cairns - often the point of arrival into far north Queensland - there are many car rental companies, both large and small.

Avis, Budget, Hertz, Europcar and Thrifty all based at Cairns Airport, with thrifty and Europcar having offices in the city centre.

If you are planning to arrive in the region by air and want to hire a campervan, then Cairns is the ideal place to start.
Britz, Awesome Campervans and Backpacker are all based in the city.
All drivers for both car and campervan hire must be over 21 and hold a valid driving licence. Credit cards are accepted and all rentals will include comprehensive insurance and should have roadside breakdown assistance.

Special requirements, like A GPS system or a child seat, should be booked in advance.
