Hiring your own car is the best way to travel around Byron Bay and the surrounding Northern Rivers. Everyone here cycles, walks or drives as public transport is very limited and while you can reach many beautiful places on foot, if the full Byron Bay experience is what you want… Byron Bay RentACar is what you need.

Byron Bay has a lot more to offer than just the town itself. Rent a car and explore neighbouring towns like Lennox Head, Brunswick Heads, Iluka, Bangalow and Nimbin, explore the picturesque hinterland, dine at iconic local cafe’s and restaurants, chill out by a waterfall, chase epic surf breaks and hike through the region’s spectacular national parks.

We have stylish MG3 Auto hatchbacks and a selection of cost-saving secondhand cars for day trips, Nissan X-Trail SUVs for adventures that take you further away from the bay, Mystery Machine campervans for avid campers and 8 seat people movers for families and groups.
