Conveniently located in Bathurst

3 hours drive from Sydney, you'll find yourself in the car racing capital of Australia - Bathurst. Known for hosting some epic V8 motorsports events, the area is also teeming with tourist attractions, from the incredible Jenolan limestone caves to the peaceful Macquarie River.

So if you're on the hunt for some wheels to see everything Bathurst has to offer, visit us today at our Stewart Street branch located in the heart of Bathurst CBD. We stock family friendly hatchbacks and SUVs that are perfect for zipping through town with ease, as well as a great range of commercial vehicles including utes, trucks and vans.

Here at Thrifty Car Rental Bathurst we pride ourselves as having one of the largest passenger and commercial vehicle branches in Australia and we not only service the bustling area of Bathurst but also the neighbouring regions of Peel, Oberon, Lithgow, Kelso and Raglan. Come see us today or give us a call on 02 6331 7033! 

Utes and trucks?

With a strong manufacturer industry, we've ensured that our Bathurst fleet has everyone from small business construction workers to large infrastructure companies covered, with a commercial fleet to impress. We've got everything from the 1-tonne ute up to a 9-tonne truck, as well as mine-spec vehicles. In fact, we have supplied major mining organisations Rio Tinto and Woodside Energy.

We also give you the flexibility to choose a vehicle to suit your needs with the option of automatic or manual, petrol or diesel, as well as varying load capacities. Just let us know what you're after, and we'll get you sorted. We are your go to specialists when it comes to ute and truck hire, we'll even tailor a package especially for you for long term rentals.

Moving people?

It's easy to visit Bathurst with a bustling group of people thanks to our spacious vans that come with the option of 12 seats or 25 seats.

Of course, if you're simply travelling with the family our smaller five seater passenger vehicles will do the trick. Choose between our safe and reliable hatchbacks like the Toyota Corolla or enjoy the larger Mitsubishi Outlander, with plenty of room for the entire family. 

Opening hours for early rises

We look forward to seeing you at Bathurst Car Hire from 8.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday and 8.00am to 12.00pm on the weekends.

Things to see and do in Bathurst

If you love cars, then you'll love Bathurst. Twice a year motoring enthusiasts swarm to the area to visit the world famous Mount Panorama Motor Racing Circuit, that holds the iconic annual racing events of the Bathurst 12 Hour and the Bathurst 1000. While you're visiting Bathurst you can also learn more about the history of motorsports in Australia by stopping by the National Motor Racing Museum. 

Apart from thrilling V8 racing, Bathurst is also a great spot to visit for a stint with a range of holiday attractions. Bathurst is located in the Central Tablelands Region and lies beside the Macquarie River, the perfect place for a midday picnic or afternoon stroll.

Once you've shifted gears in your Thrifty hire car, make sure you take a drive to the nearby Abercrombie and Jenolan caves that play host to some majestic limestone cave systems. And if you're travelling with the kids put a visit to the Australian Fossil and Mineral Museum on your holiday to do list, that houses an impressive skeleton of a tyrannosaurus rex.
