KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Artarmon

  • Electric car hire in Artarmon is provided by a couple of hire companies. Consequently, several EV car charging stations are located within the city and its environs. You can find two car charging stations along 39 Herbert Street, at the street level and at the restaurant level. There is an EV charging station at Origin Mildren Nissan, along 557 Pacific Highway at street level. If you plan on moving around the city with no charging stops, book a room at a hotel in Artarmon with an onsite car charging station. Some of these hotels include Nate's Place Backpackers Sydney, Sydney Central Backpackers and Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel.
  • If you are in possession of a valid and current driver’s licence that has been used for at least a year and you’re 21 years and older, you qualify for cheap car hire in Artarmon. However, some car categories in Artarmon have a higher minimum hire age of 25 years old, and an underage driver fee may apply. Foreign drivers are required to provide their domestic licence as well as an International Driver’s Permit (IDP). In addition, drivers should provide a valid credit or debit card from a major company, to pay for their hire car in Artarmon.
  • Sydney is a heavily populated city, causing traffic to build up to large volumes during peak hours. We recommend you use some toll roads that provide the shortest transit time. Among them, Gore Hill Freeway provides an alternative high-grade route from Artarmon to Lane Cove that helps in reducing traffic demands on the Pacific Highway. To pay for toll roads in Artarmon, you need a toll tag or a toll pass. Visitors looking for cheap car hire in Artarmon can buy a Sydney pass online, to allow them access to the toll roads not only in Armaton but also in other areas in Sydney. However, check with your Armaton car hire company to confirm whether they have a tolling arrangement already.
  • Hire a car in Artarmon to drive right up to the water’s edge of Sydney Harbour as well as northern beaches, such as Manly and Balmoral. Artarmon Station sits on the T1—North Shore & Western Line, which has busy carriages of commuters making their way to and from the CBD, making a hire car a much more peaceful and comfortable travel option. No direct public transport route is possible from Artarmon to Taronga Zoo Sydney, with a connection of buses or trains requiring 45min; however, it’s possible to drive in only 20min.
  • Reception desks for hire companies in the domestic terminals T2 and T3 at Sydney International Airport (SYD) are across from the baggage claim, just before the exit doors. Hire vehicles are located in the shared car park between the terminals. For travellers arriving at international T1, hire offices can be found in the middle of the Arrivals Hall, with vehicles in the P7 Car Park. Picking up a hire car makes the journey to Artarmon smoother; otherwise, two trains are needed with a changeover at Central Railway Station.
  • Exit lanes on highways can be confusing around Artarmon, especially leading up to the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and it’s recommended that drivers use GPS navigation. Stay aware of which lane you are in and the overhead signage indicating where it leads to. Cyclists are common towards Lane Cove National Park and a safe distance of at least 1.5 m should be maintained at all times. Transit lanes restricted to cars carrying two or three people are indicated by red signs with T2 and T3 lettering respectively, while bus lanes are marked B.
  • Peak-hour traffic is worst in Artarmon from 07:00–10:00 and 16:00–19:00. It’s best to avoid driving in these periods as lengthy delays are common. The Pacific Hwy and Lane Cove Tunnel are most affected by congestion.
  • Book your car hire in Artarmon at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Artarmon are around -51% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

I showed up a few hours early to pick up my rental; my model wasn’t available yet but I was shown the cars available and was able to pick something else. Very helpful staff. Very quick and easy to get the car and then even quicker for drop off. I will definitely use them again.
