Why do I need a hire car in Byron Bay?

byron bay car rentals cheap car rental byron bay

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 small/medium cars for day trips, wagons that can comfortably sleep 2 for when your explorations take you further away from the bay and of course, 8-seaters for the bigger groups.

Byron Bay RentACar has something for everyone.
