Drive Car Hire – Hobart City


Drive Car Hire is a Tasmanian-owned and operated family business. We have been offering affordable car rentals throughout Tasmania for over 35 years. Our team of friendly locals provide helpful service and are armed with all the tips you will need to maximise your time in Tasmania.

With a modern fleet of vehicles including hatches, sedans, SUVs, 4WDs, and minivans (up to 12 seaters), we will help you choose the best car for your needs. Fuel-saving electric and hybrid cars are also available.

Drive Car Hire is the first company to offer electric vehicles (EVs) for hire in Tasmania, with a fleet of Teslas available in Hobart and Launceston.

Our Hobart City office is conveniently located in the city centre, a ten-minute walk from Salamanca Place and a 12 to 15-minute walk from the cruise terminal. We are open seven days a week with returns available after hours.

Drop-off at Hobart airport is available along with one-way rentals to Launceston airport and, by request only, Devonport.

Drive cars are allowed to go to Bruny Island and are also covered for travel on unsealed roads. Child seats available.
