KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Yulara

  • To hire a car in Yulara, you must be at least 21 years old and have an active driver's licence. Most car hire companies will also require that you’ve held your licence for a minimum of 12 months. Additionally, you may need to provide a credit card or make a cash deposit as security for the hire. It's also important to note that some car hire companies may have age restrictions, and drivers under 25 may need to pay a surcharge; this is especially important to consider when looking for cheap car hire in Yulara. International travellers may be required to present an international driving permit by some agencies.
  • While Yulara itself is small, there are a few roads that are crucial for getting around the area efficiently. The main road is the Lasseter Highway, which connects Yulara to other nearby townships, such as Erldunda and Alice Springs. It is important to know this road so that visitors can navigate through the area effectively and reach their destinations faster. Visitors should also be aware that there are stretches of the Lasseter Highway that are unsealed, especially when travelling around Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Drivers should take care using cheap car hire in Yulara on these unsealed roads, as they can be slippery and difficult to manoeuvre; plus, your car hire company may not even allow it.
  • Child seat safety laws in Yulara are in place to ensure the safety of children who are travelling in all cars, including hire vehicles. The law requires that all children up to the age of seven be restrained in an approved safety restraint when in a moving car. Children under six months must be in a safety car seat facing the back, while children between six months and four years must be either in a back-facing or front-facing restraint with an inbuilt harness. Children between four and seven years old must be in a front-facing restraint or a booster seat.
  • With a scorching climate throughout the year, hiring a car in Yulara provides peace of mind, knowing you can hop in and drive off immediately. There is only one bus stop in the centre of Yulara where all passengers are dropped off, meaning a hire car is your best option for moving around the town. Other than driving yourself, the only option of reaching Uluru is by coach transfer, which costs approximately A$ 45 for a return ticket. Having a hire car also allows you to visit Uluru for sunrise or sunset without adjusting your schedule to the timetable, as buses only depart approximately six times per day.
  • Reception offices for Avis, Hertz and Thrifty are located within the terminal building at Ayers Rock Airport (AYQ) and can be easily spotted from the Arrivals Area. As the airport only operates domestic flights, locating your hire car doesn’t take long and only requires a short walk from the terminal. As there is no public transport connection available, picking up a hire car will save you from organising a private transfer from Ayers Rock Airport.
  • Drive cautiously at dusk and dawn because this is when wildlife and cattle are most likely to amble onto roads. If you see a herd crossing, reduce your speed and wait for them to clear the road. Visibility on Northern Territory roads can be difficult due to dust, so it is important to ensure you have a clear line of sight and ample space when overtaking. Although unsealed roads are commonly used and often appear on maps, only 4WD vehicles should drive on them.
  • Due to having an incredibly remote location, traffic is a distant memory in Yulara. The busiest time of day on the roads is between 09:00 and 10:00 as tourists make their way towards Uluru, though it shouldn’t affect your travel plans.
  • Book your rental car in Yulara at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Full-size rental cars in Yulara are around 1% more expensive than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Yulara

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Yulara?

    A 4WD is the safest bet so you can go off-road driving on desert sand. The high-clearance models easily handle small rocks that are flicked up from the surface. It’s best to comprehensively understand the conditions of your hire contract to know which surfaces your 4WD is permitted to use. A more fuel-efficient economy or intermediate car model is a good choice if you are planning on driving long distances across the Northern Territory and staying on major roads.

  • What’s the speed limit in Yulara?

    The standard speed limit on open roads around Yulara is 110 km/h; however, Lasseter Hwy has long stretches of 80 km/h that are signposted. Stick to a maximum of 50 km/h in urban areas in Yulara, while unpaved roads have a limit of 80 km/h.

  • Where are the best places to park in Yulara?

    There are no parking restrictions in Yulara other than staying off private property. Finding a free parking space requires little effort and complimentary vehicle parking is provided with the purchase of admission to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.

  • Where can I charge my electric car in Yulara?

    There are a few electric car charging stations in Yulara, including in various resorts and car parks. However, it's important to note that Yulara is located in a remote area, and charging options may be limited, so you should plan your trips carefully to include charging locations. It is also worth noting that charges may apply.

  • How can I return my Yulara hire car to a different branch?

    Some Yulara car hire companies may allow you to return your hire car to a different branch. For example, both Thrifty and Dollar allow for pick-up and drop-off at different locations. It's worth noting that one-way hires have limited availability or may require a longer minimum hire period in order to be eligible.

Should release credit card retainer when the car is returned in good order like other companies - not 2 weeks later!

Not any online systems worked, no online checking, not possible to download invoice (credentials do not match). People on desk were very friendly and nice, but everything else poor. Also I'll complain my invoice as I get it. The price offer what I get was different as taken my credit card.

I got quote of around 280 AD but had to pay more than 500 AD without insurance. I got no explanation of this overcharge at airport reception.

Wanted to extend the hire for just 4 days but this was going to cost me more than the 11 days I had already hired. So I took it back to the airport in Alice Springs and hired from another car hire agency for $300 rather then over $2k. Ridiculous difference in price for a similar car.

Pros:

The Rav4 was a very comfortable vehicle and held our suitcases and they were big ones! The waitstaff were very nice people and they were quite personable.

Cons:

The Rav4 gets not the best mileage. I drive a Prius and get over 50 MPG on the low end so, having to gas up once during our 3 days of use ....actually twice as we had to fill up before we turned it in...was a bit much.

We hired a vehicle on Thursday the 27th of October at the airport in Yulara. We had exceptional service from the lady at the counter who went above and beyond to help us. I would highly recommend Avis based on her outstanding service.

Pros:

Cheap car (supplier's choice). We (me and my girlfriend) got big MPV (Kia) with 7 spaces. A lot of places, a good car.

Cons:

Slow pickup - there was a problem with mobile network in Yulara - there was no internet connection or mobile signal on the airport this day so everything had to be filled manually by renter/supplier. But it can happen - it is not Hertz fail... E91 Uluru price - $2,22 compare to Sydney - $1,37

4.0 Mediocre

Nov 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

Not much

Cons:

I know I booked a "mystery vehicle", but getting a banged up van for a couple in their fifties was not exactly what I envisioned. I can understand a van part as it was a mystery car, but why was it banged up and not cleaned well after the previous use? Nobody was available at the desk mid-day when we were returning the vehicle. We tried two times with half-hour in between. Is anybody manning the desk at all?
