This incredible city has so much to offer – from The Strand to Billabong Sanctuary to Mount Stuart – and having a car to get you from point A to point B makes exploring so much easier. With 1300 Meteor Rentals, you can leave your car at home and rent one of ours for an affordable price.
We have a wide range of vehicles available for all kinds of trips, from economy rentals for a romantic break to an SUV for the whole family. So pack all of your scuba gear, your sunnies, the sunblock and the kids into a people mover for a day at the Great Barrier Reef or choose a cosy Hatchback for a romantic tour around Queensland.
At 1300 Meteor Rentals, we're part of one of Australia's largest vehicle rental companies. This means we offer a wide range of cars at a variety of price points - we're confident we'll have the right car for you at a price you can afford. Plus, our extensive selection means that we're able to offer cars with all kinds of features: from GPS navigation systems and Bluetooth connectivity to satellite radio and more.
The minimum age to rent a car in Townsville is 21 years old. Also, bear in mind that a 'Young Driver Surcharge' of $15 AUD per day may also be applied if you are between the ages of 21 and 24.
Here at 1300 Meteor, we have a wide variety of vehicles to choose from. Whether you're looking for something sporty or practical, we have it all! And if you're renting with us for the first time, we'll make sure everything is as seamless as possible.
To rent with us, all you need is a valid driver's licence. You can also add additional drivers to your reservation if you'd like to share the load.
The cost of hiring a car with us depends on several factors. This includes the type of vehicle that you want to hire and how long it’s going to be used for. This means that it’s going to cost more to hire an SUV for a week compared to a two-seater car for 3 days.
However, the cost of hiring a car with us can also depend on any additional costs, such as fuel or insurance cover if necessary (which can be discussed further when booking).
Whilst we want you to enjoy your trip in Townsville, there are some restrictions that we ask you to abide by. This is to protect both you and other drivers on the road, but also our vehicles.
While you're in Townsville, you can't drive your non 4x4 rental car off-road or on any beaches, and you're not allowed to take your rental car onto any wildlife reserves. Additionally, please remember that it's illegal to drive while under the influence, so if you're enjoying a few drinks during your stay, don't get behind the wheel again until you're safe to drive.
When planning a trip to Townsville, you might be wondering what kind of cars are available to hire. We have both manual and automatic transmissions on offer, and there are many models to choose from too, including the MG 3, the Hyundai Kona GO and the LDV G10.
