Tasmania Car Hire
Conveniently located throughout Tasmania
Get back to nature with a holiday to Tasmania, or as the locals like to call it Tassie! Tasmania is a picturesque island nestled remotely at the bottom of the sundried continent of Australia. With no regular trains (only a small amount of tourist railways) and hardly any traffic, the best way to discover Tasmania's secrets is by jumping in a comfortable Thrifty hire car.
Make the most out of your working holiday by exploring the ins and outs Tasmania, in a deluxe sedan or cheerful hatch. You can weave along the smooth-winding roads that take you to some of Australia's most beautiful and secluded spots.
We also offer an incredible range of hire cars suitable for a family travelling with the little ones on a budget. Our SUVs have big boots that can easily fit a picnic with smelly cheeses and tasty wine, as well as your holiday luggage. Watch out for the cute and fluffy animals crossing the roads!
