KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Burnie

  • Using Burnie car hire, there are certain main roads that you are likely to use. For example, the Bass Highway is the major highway that runs through Burnie and connects the to other areas in Tasmania. To navigate the Bass Highway, it's crucial to pay attention to any road signage and posted speed limits. Another is Mount Street, which is an important road in the centre of Burnie; during peak hours, it could be crowded. It features a number of roundabouts and crossroads, so it's crucial to pay attention to traffic flow and make room for other vehicles as needed.
  • Drunk driving laws in Burnie apply even to Burnie hire car drivers. It is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.05% or higher. For drivers with a learner's permit or a probationary licence, the BAC limit is 0.00%. Police in Burnie regularly conduct roadside breath tests, and drivers who exceed the legal limit may be charged with a criminal offence and face fines, licence suspension or even imprisonment. It's important to note that the legal consequences of drunk driving can have a significant impact on a person's life and can also pose a serious danger to themselves and others on the road.
  • The specific requirements for cheap car hire in Burnie, Tasmania, may vary depending on the hire car agency you choose to hire from. Generally, you will need a current driver's licence, and an international driver's permit may be required if your licence is not in English. You will also need proof showing that you are at least 21, but some agencies require drivers to be at least 25 years old. Most car hire companies require a credit card in the hirer's name to cover any potential damages or fines. Hire car companies may offer additional insurance for an extra fee, to cover accidents and damages.
  • Getting a car hire in Burnie will be essential to getting the most out of your trip. In most of Tasmania, having your own car is a necessity, as public transport is limited outside of its major cities, Hobart and Launceston. Some of the best things to do in Burnie involve visiting nature and wildlife reserves, all of which are much more easily accessed with your own vehicle; you can stay and explore as long as you like if you aren't bound by the schedule of a tour bus.
  • You can pick up your Burnie car hire at Burnie Wynyard Airport (BWT). There are three main counters available, which can be found opposite the passenger terminal. As having a car is so important for most tourists, we recommend booking ahead through KAYAK, as access to vehicles can be limited or more expensive if you try to get a car hire in Burnie when you arrive.
  • Due to winding roads, it is often difficult to drive at the top end of the speed limit in Burnie so be aware that your drive will likely take longer than expected. Keep an eye out for wildlife on the roads, you may wish to avoid driving after dark as this is when animals will be most active. As Burnie has a small population, roads usually aren't very busy and there are no real peak hours to avoid. You can check the Tasmanian government's transport website for up-to-date traffic news in Burnie to see if there are any road closures or delays.
  • Some roads can be winding with sharp corners, so we recommend checking your route on a map before you drive, so you aren't taken by surprise. Narrow and steep roads are also quite common. Like the rest of Tasmania, Burnie is known for sudden changes in the weather, so always be prepared for snow and hail. Burnie does also get cold enough in winter to occasionally get snow and icy roads, so ensure your vehicle is equipped to manage these conditions.
  • Book your rental car in Burnie at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Supplier choice rental cars in Burnie are around 6% cheaper than other car types, on average
