Byron Bay is located 800kms north of Sydney and 175kms south of Brisbane. Local airports include Ballina (about 30 minutes drive south) and Coolangatta, an hour north on the Gold Coast.
Many visitors arriving at Byron Bay will have hired their vehicle from either location, or will have driven to the north coast of NSW from Brisbane or Sydney.
Car hire at Coolangatta is superb, with all the major companies represented: Hertz, Avis, Europcar and Budget. However, Byron Bay car rentals are also available locally. Simmons of Bryon Bay offer great local deals and boast the cheapest rates in town. Hirers must be 21 years of age or older though and must have a valid credit card for payment validity. In Byron Bay itself, both Thrifty and Hertz are represented and offer a variety of vehicles from small budget hatchbacks to large saloons and even vans.
Another local company to consider is Earthcar Rentals. The company offers a range of vehicles from the small Toyota Yaris to roomy station wagons and people movers. Visitors looking for something different can also hire superbly renovated VW Combi vans from local company Luvdub and Byron Bay Service Station offers minibus rentals. Be sure to ask if the rental includes roadside breakdown assistance.
Nearby Ballina airport also offers a range of hirers, including Avis, Thrift, Budget, Europcar, and Britz campervan hire. All hirers accept credit cards and eftpos and quote comprehensive insurance.
