Conveniently located in the heart of Canberra

Getting around the capital city of Australia is simple - all you need is the right vehicle. Luckily, Thrifty Canberra Car and Truck Rental boasts a massive fleet, with vehicles ranging from the compact hatchback to the booming truck (perfect for large cargo moves), as well as utes, vans, sedans, wagons.

We're located adjacent to the main transit route of Northbourne Ave and are close to Canberra's thriving CBD. So if you have a quick job in the city on a strict deadline, you can get it done without any hassles. Come see us today!  

Utes and trucks?

The team at Thrifty Canberra are specialists in commercial vehicles, so whether you're looking for a refrigerated van for an upcoming event, 1 tonne ute for the tools or a 3-8 tonne truck for tough loads, we'll be able to find the perfect vehicle for your job.

We offer competitive daily, weekly and weekend pricing so you won't break the bank getting the job done. Speak with one of our friendly staff members on 02 6247 7422 for more information.

Moving People?

Navigating this 'garden city' is easy with our roomy five door hatchbacks, sizable sedans and seven seater SUVs. We have current model stock, such as the Toyota Corolla that was awarded a five star crash rating, the roomy and comfortable Subaru Liberty and plenty more.  

For larger groups we offer 21 seater buses, with the optional extra of a trailer for luggage and gear. 

Optional extras available at Canberra Car Hire

Thrifty Canberra offers optional extras at a small additional price. If you're moving cargo we have trolleys, boxes and ropes to make the job a breeze. We also offer protection options to ensure you have peace of mind whilst hiring a Thrifty hire car.

Don't risk getting lost! Instead hire our GPS unit, with voice navigation for seamless cruising. Mums and dads, we also offer the convenience of hiring an easy to fit baby or child seat.

Our friendly Thrifty employees are here to greet you 7 days a week, from 8.00am to 5.30pm weekdays and 8.00am to 1:00pm on weekends.

Things to see and do in Canberra

Cultural buffs will, simply, love Canberra! Thrifty Canberra is located a few minutes drive to the iconic Australian War Museum that showcases combat displays and personal stories from Australian diggers.

The Australian National Botanic Gardens is also just around the corner, where you'll discover the delights of Australia's flora and fauna, including plants, flowers, rock gardens, and rainforests.

Of course, Canberra is the political hub of Australia, so Parliament House is a must-visit. Join one of the free-guided tours to get a personal insight into the running of the country.

Exploring outer Canberra

Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle and visit Canberra's countryside, where 140 vineyards reside - producing top quality Australian wine. 

For a longer cruise in a comfy Thrifty hire car, drive around 2 hours south to the exquisite Snowy Mountains. In the winter months, avid skiers and boarders can hit the slopes and in summer the mountains become a refreshing spot for camping and bushwalking. Another standout natural land formation to stop by is the incredible Yarrangobilly Caves. The splendid limestone caves can be explored for hours but only in the day.

If you are willing to make the trip drive to Melbourne or up to Sydney and check out Thrifty Travel Ideas for great places where all the locals escape to. 

Thrifty Canberra is your one stop shop for car and truck rental. We hope to see you at our fleet soon!
