Cairns Hire Cars & Cairns Rental Cars
To hire a car some companies insist that the drivers be at least 25 years of age. Other companies require a minimum age of 21. An International licence is all you will need to drive on Australian roads.
Motor Cycles & Scooters
Scooters or a motor bike under 50cc can also be hired with only a drivers licence. There is no need for a separate licence. Most of these bikes are limited somewhat in speed and are ideal for City driving but not highly reccommended to be taken on open highways.
Bicycles can be hired from car rental agencies as well, bicycle lanes are clearly marked on city roads. Bicycle riders are all required by law to wear a safety helmet.
Australian Domestic & International Airlines
Domestic Airlines to and from Cairns
Some travellers prefer to book connecting flights once they are in Australia or just compare prices to see if it cheaper to book from the country of origin or locally.
