Cairns Airport is Australia's fifth busiest airport, in terms of international passengers. It's east on the Captain Cook Highway and only 8 kms out from Cairns central business district. If you're dropping or picking someone up, parking is actually quite reasonably priced, 2 hours parking will see you part with $3. Or for $11 you can leave your car there for an entire 24 hours.
If you're looking to rent a car so you can motor on out into the big blue yonder, picking up your rental car couldn't be easier. All of Australia's most popular car hire companies have depots at Cairns Airport. But it pays to make sure you book in advance. Otherwise not only will the price be steeper, but the range of vehicles available will be patchy.
Booking ahead is great, and if you book online with Carhire.com.au, you'll save time and money as well. At Carhire you'll be able to directly compare the prices and options of Australia's most popular car rental companies. And these prices are the special discounted rates that Carhire has negotiated with Avis, Hertz, Europcar, Budget and Thrifty. Booking with any of these companies through Carhire.com.au means you'll get a brilliant car rental Cairns Airport deal.
