Guide to driving your car rental in NSW
Stay safe on the roads with our top tips for driving your car hire in Wagga Wagga and the state of New South Wales. These pointers are not a comprehensive list by any means, but some local rules, customs, and safety concerns to keep in mind as you drive in the area.
- Always drive your Wagga Wagga car hire on the left in Australia! If you are coming from a country in which you drive on the right, we recommend taking some time to become accustomed to the new arrangement. Be aware that Australian cars will have the driver’s seat on the right-hand side of the vehicle.
- Another pointer for foreign drivers: all distances are posted in kilometres, and speeds in kilometres per hour. The default speed limits in New South Wales are set at 50 kph in built-up areas and 100 kph on open roads and highways.
- If you’re entering the Outback, drive prepared! You should always have spare food, water, warm clothes, and a method of communication as some stretches of road are very remote. There can be long distances between petrol stations, so keep that topped up too.
- If you’re visiting the NSW wine regions or just local bars, designate a sober driver or make transport arrangements. The legal blood alcohol concentration limits for drivers in the state are 0% for learner or provisional licence holders, 0.02% for those driving heavy vehicles, public vehicles, or dangerous goods, and 0.05% for everyone else.
- If you’re driving your hire car outside of urban areas and towns, keep an eye out for both the enormous road trains that share the roads and the wildlife that can wander into the path of vehicles. A kangaroo can do some serious damage to a car.
