Has visiting Tasmania been on your bucket list for a while? If it hasn’t now is the time to add it on! Tasmania is a beautiful piece of Australia to visit and you will make memories that last a life time. There is so much to do from Launceston, to Cradle Mountain, Hobart and everywhere in between. One of the easiest ways to get around the state is with the use of a hire car. It means that you are able to jump on a plan and pick up your hire car from the airport and off you go. There are many benefits of hiring a car for your trip to Tasmania. Check them out below.


One of the biggest benefits of car hire is the convenience that comes with it. When you are travelling interstate, especially if you come to Tasmania the easiest option is to fly over. This does mean though that you do not have a car with you. Relying on public transport can be great if you are only staying in the one area, however if you want to explore and visit lots of different places, public transport can be difficult. 

Hiring a car for your stay means that you are able to come and go as you please. You can head out for the day and not be restricted on the time you need to get back by. You can travel from one side of the state to the other and not have to worry about whether trains and buses are going to line up on time. 

The convenience of hiring a car reduces your stress and gives you a better chance at enjoying your time away. 

Wide variety of cars available

Another benefit is that you can choose a car that is going to work for your trip. A larger family are going to need a bigger car to help get them from point A to point B, not to mention the luggage as well. 

At ABC Car Hire, we have a fleet of vehicles to suit all your needs. Whether you need a small car for one person or a large car for a family, we are here to help. 

We do not guarantee brand new cars, we aim to provide the best prices which means some of our cars are older, however they are all in perfect running condition.

Budget friendly

If you are planning a trip and need to think about transfers to and from the airport for everyone. And then public transport for getting to and from different places throughout your holiday – the cost can start to add up. 

At ABC Car Hire, our prices are reasonable and by hiring a car you can save money on the overall trip. There is no needing to think about if you are going to have enough money for the next days transport. It is all paid for at the start of the trip.


When you go on holidays, you want to be comfortable. This includes when you are travelling from one spot to another. The comfort of a car will always beat being seated on a bus or train. You can change the air conditioning to suit your needs. You are able to have the radio or music playing to what you like and the seats are much more comfortable. 

Don’t let your trip be an uncomfortable one.

Accident assistance

If you are involved in an accident or the car breakdowns during your leased time, you are able to easily get in contact with the team at ABC rentals to organise what to do next. This can include a replacement car being provided depending on the circumstances. 

You will need to fill out an incident report and if needed also have the police contacted for an accident report number.
