KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Ipswich

  • Visitors who plan to book cheap car hire in Ipswich should be aware of the toll roads in the area. Navigating them is relatively easy, although drivers need to be aware of the requirements for payment. The M2/M6 Logan Motorway, for example, connects Ipswich to the M1 or Pacific Motorway. To navigate the toll roads, you will need to have an electronic tag or use a "pass" system to pay the tolls, as there are no toll booths on the road. Electronic tags can be purchased from a number of providers, such as Linkt or Go Via, and can be used for toll roads. Alternatively, drivers can register for a pass system, such as the "Trip Pass" or "Casual Toll Pass", which allows payment for a one-time passage or a number of trips in advance, but this can be more expensive than using an electronic tag.
  • Ipswich has a blood alcohol limit of 0.05% for drivers with a full licence. It is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.05% or higher. For drivers who hold a learner's permit (L) or a provisional driver's licence (P1 or P2) and those under 20, the legal BAC limit is zero. Driving under the influence of drugs is also illegal and can lead to significant legal consequences. It is important to note that drinking and driving is not tolerated in Queensland or anywhere in Australia and can result in significant fines, licence suspension, imprisonment and other serious consequences.
  • Ipswich, QLD, has a well-connected road network that makes it easy to get around the city. However, it is advisable that visitors familiarise themselves with the major roads they are likely to encounter using cheap car hire in Ipswich. The Cunningham Highway, for example, connects Ipswich to Brisbane. The Ipswich Motorway is another major highway that connects Ipswich to Brisbane and the Gold Coast. These are major highways, so be sure to keep an eye on the speed limit and stay in the designated lanes.
  • Give yourself access to all it has to offer by taking up car hire in Ipswich. Surrounded by parks, hikes, gardens and nature, having a car while in Ipswich is a necessity to ensure you’re not missing out. Brisbane is a 45min-1h 30min drive away depending on traffic, so if you plan to hit the city or the coast while you’re in Ipswich, you’ll want your own transport to navigate on your own terms.
  • Brisbane Airport (BNE) has hire car offices for Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz, Enterprise Holdings and Thrifty in both their domestic and international terminals; there are also car hire companies that have offices off site but offer a shuttle service to and from the airport. Most of these are free and will advise of any cost when booking. As Brisbane is a large city with a large airport, there are many options, so finding cheap Ipswich car hire should be a breeze.
  • Both Ipswich and Brisbane city, as well as surrounding areas, have varying speed limits, so be sure to pay attention to road signs. This area of Queensland also has many tolls; most hire car companies will have a tag for toll access included in your fee, but be sure to check this upon collection of your vehicle. If this is not included, you will need to set up a pass online prior to driving on these toll roads.
  • Be aware that all main roads between Brisbane and Ipswich can double in travel time during peak hours, ranging anywhere from 40min up to 1h 30min. Peak-hour traffic is usually from 07:00 to 09:00 and 16:00 to 19:00 on weekdays. It is also advised to make sure your car hire in Ipswich has air conditioning, as Queensland has a subtropical climate and it can get uncomfortably hot in a car, particularly in the summer months.
  • Book your car hire in Ipswich at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Ipswich are around -54% cheaper than other car types, on average
