Mackay car rental search


Hiring a car in Mackay is relatively easy with plenty of options for the drivers with full licences over 21 years of age. The north Queensland city has become a growth area in recent years, thanks to the mining boom, and as a result services are plentiful. Mackay Airport’s main terminal building hosts many of the well known car hire companies: Avis, Budget, Hertz, Europcar, Thrifty and Red Spot.

All offer a variety of vehicles, from small hatchbacks to large sedans - some offer 4WD rentals, but check with the hirer first for availability.

Smart State Rentals in Mackay offer good deals on a range of vehicles, mostly Toyotas, and on 4WD and light trucks.

NQ Car and Truck Rental in north Mackay, Corefleet and Mackay Car Rentals are also based in the city with various auto and manual car deals.

Campervan hire is limited in Mackay, although nearby Airlie Beach - 150kms north - and a tourist hotspot and gateway to the Whitsundays, has a number of options including Camperman Australia and Whitsunday Camper hire.

Airlie Beach also offers car hire through Avis, Hertz and Europcar.

If you are looking for something out of the ordinary, then Fun Rentals in Airlie Beach has jeeps, mokes and scoot cars as well as small hatchbacks. They’ve also got bikes and scooters if you fancy two wheels.

All the rental companies accept credit cards and eftpos and all the hirings come with full insurance and roadside breakdown assistance.
