Customer questions about Sydney Airport car hire

I want rent a car between 13 jun and 27 Jun, do you have in-terminal pickup in Sydney airport?

Hi, yes we do have cars available for in-terminal pick up at Sydney Airport, you can filter results to show only in-terminal suppliers if this is a requirement?

Hi Fiona. Can you please tell me if the insurance etc is covered in the rental price, or this an extra upon collecting the car??

Hello, all of our rentals include the mandatory insurance required to legally drive the car, however as with a domestic car insurance there is an excess in the event of a claim. This is typically higher on rental cars than domestic polices and can range from 1-2000 AUD. You can check for any particular rental under the terms and conditions 'Excess Deposit' or if you let me know which car you are looking at I can check for you.

Sydney Airport Mini Guide

The Airport
Sydney Airport may not be in the top ten of the world’s busiest airports but it still sees 36 million passengers pass through its terminals each year. Its busiest route to Melbourne is the 4th busiest in the world. Once at the airport there are three main car parks with a shuttle bus called P-Bus connecting the long term one with the terminal. Valet parking is also available. The airport is only five miles from the central business district, an easy 15 minute journey.

Getting There
42 airlines operate in and out of Sydney and there are 47 domestic routes linked to the airport. Airlines are a mix of chartered, scheduled international and domestic airlines including the budget airlines Jetstar and Pacific Blue

Getting to Your Destination
If you’ve arranged a hire car for collection from the airport then the car hire companies’ offices can be found in both terminals on the arrivals level just after baggage reclaim. In such a busy airport, long queues can build up and we’d recommend sending a party member through to queue whilst others collect the luggage from the carousels. Access to the city is easy via the Southern Cross Motorway M1 or the M5 South West Motorway.

For those intending to use public transport, there are train stations in both terminals which take you into the heart of the city. Be aware that the station in the international terminal is at the north end of the arrivals level. Airport Link trains leave every 10 minutes for the 13 minute journey into the city. From Sydney’s main station, state and interstate trains can be accessed. Sydney Buses operate several routes into the city and suburbs.

Timetables and further information can be found at Suburb Transfers offer pre-booked drop off and collection at locations around the city and at the main hotels. Many hotels have their own courtesy buses for passengers staying at them.

Public Information
There’s an airport information desk in the arrivals public areas of each terminal together with a New South Wales tourist information desk. Make sure you go to the relevant desk as waiting at the wrong desk will waste your time.

Latest Update from Sydney Airport:

07/02/17 – Sydney experienced its heaviest rainfall in six months this week. The heavy rain and damaging winds meant that all staff working on the tarmac at Sydney airport was removed and some flights experienced delayed. 

22/04/12 - Sydney has announced plans to streamline the airport joining all the terminals but creating 'precincts' in them for the two airline alliances that use it. This is hoped to reduce passenger waiting times at check in as each alliance partner will be handled by their own single set of handling agents
