KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Devonport

  • If you plan on using your mobile phone as a GPS while driving your hire car in Devonport, make sure you have a commercially made phone mount for it. Your car hire company may be able to provide one for you. You can only use phones for GPS or calls if it is mounted and can be operated only by voice commands. If you're planning on driving into rural areas in Tasmania, your phone may not have reception. In these cases, consider booking a satellite GPS from your Devonport car hire provider.
  • The Spirit of Tasmania ferry to Melbourne departs from Devonport. If you want to take your Devonport hire car onto the ferry, double-check with your provider. Most will require you to at least notify them ahead of time and some may not permit you to take certain vehicles onto car ferries. You'll often need to take out extra insurance coverage to ensure you're covered for anything that happens during the trip, which may not be ideal for cheap car hire in Devonport. Some may offer the option of dropping your hire car off at the ferry terminal and picking a new one up in Melbourne. Alternatively, if you take your original vehicle across to Melbourne, most major companies will allow you to drop your Devonport hire car off at a location in a different city if it’s prearranged.
  • Most Devonport car hire companies won't offer vehicles to drivers under 21. You also generally need to have held a full licence for at least a year without any suspensions. Most companies charge a young driver fee for drivers under 25 too – something to consider if you’re wanting cheap car hire in Devonport. This is usually a daily surcharge capped at five to seven days. The price varies between providers but Hertz and Europcar tend to be on the lower end. Remember that the young driver surcharge will apply if any additional drivers are also under 25, not just the main hirer.
  • Straddling the northern Tasmanian coastline, Devonport is often a blustery place and so having the security of a hire car is sure to make your visit more comfortable. With harsh winds and regular rain throughout the year, waiting outside for public transport in Devonport is not ideal. Driving to attractions such as Coles Beach and Mersey Bluff Lighthouse takes less than 10min from the centre of Devonport, while the journey by bus is roughly 30min. Coach transfers to Launceston usually depart just twice per day at 09:30 and 11:00, making a hire car the more flexible option.
  • Devonport Airport (DPO) has only one terminal and the reception desks of Thrifty, Avis, Hertz, Budget and Europcar are easy to spot once you land. The car park outside is also simple to navigate and you’ll be able to walk to your hire car quickly. There is no direct public transport service to Devonport Airport from the city and a hire car will save a cab fare of approximately A$ 30.
  • Devonport has plenty of roundabouts and you should remember to indicate as you enter and exit. Also, reduce your speed as you approach roundabouts to ensure there is ample time to check for oncoming vehicles. The landscape of Devonport is considerably hilly and it’s recommended to keep a watchful eye on the speedometer to prevent speeding while descending a steep street.
  • Peak hour is worst between 08:00–09:00 and 16:00–17:30 in Devonport; however, it’s a lot calmer than major cities across Australia and won’t affect your travel noticeably. A rush of congestion is common every Saturday evening around 19:00, when the Spirit of Tasmania ferry docks, mostly influencing Bass Hwy as commuters make their way towards Launceston.
  • Book your rental car in Devonport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Devonport are around 36% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Devonport

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Devonport?

  • Where else can I get a Devonport hire car?

    If you're arriving via the Spirit of Tasmania, most major companies also have desks at the ferry terminal. Most are located inside the terminal building, and a member of staff will direct you to your vehicle.

Very easy to book online. Would have been great if I had got the car that I had booked ! Nice car but I had booked a hybrid and didn’t get it. But it was over all a good rental. Staff were great.
