Australia is a large continent, and unless you plan to stay in one particular area, car hire can involve a lot of long distance driving. If you are planning on a long distance trip, especially across the outback, make sure that you take plenty of water with you - getting stuck in the outback in hot weather without water can be dangerous, if not fatal! When you're driving on dirt roads or on a single lane road in the outback it's fine to drive down the middle of the road - just remember to pull over to the left when you encounter traffic.
Speed limits differ from state to state, but are usually 50kph in town, 100kph on the open road and 110kph on a highway. The limit drops to 40kph near schools so keep your eyes open for speed traps! Car hire in Australia is a simple process, made even simpler when using Car Hire 4 Less!
You'll find that car hire and driving in Australia is a pleasure when compared with many other parts of the world. Except in the centre of the larger cities, traffic density is not great, making it a delightful country to drive in. Remember that even in winter it can be very hot in many parts of Australia, so try to hire a car with air conditioning.
Wear light clothing when driving long distances and be sure to have a pair of anti-glare sunglasses. One last tip - don't be drawn into using a mobile phone while you're driving, the police are very hot on that one.
