If you are running late and you won't be able to collect your rental car at the allocated time, it is important to get in touch with the branch you are collecting from so that we can make alternate arrangements. If you have arrived at the branch and it is closed and if you haven't made prior arrangements for an after-hours collection you will need to pick-up your rental car the following day. Please contact our branches during business hours to arrange an alternative pick-up time.

Car Rental Launceston Airport

You’ll likely be full of awe and wonder as you descend from the skies into Launceston Airport. With flights connecting the mainland to this airport daily, this destination is frequented by both international and domestic visitors every single year. 

Tasmania is a beautiful state that is full of wild and rugged beauty. Located just offshore to mainland Australia, Tasmania is separated from the coast by the Bass Strait, which you’ll fly over as you come into Launceston. The flight into Launceston is relatively short, but still, you’ll likely be both tired and excited for your vacation ahead, so it’s a great idea to book ahead and secure your rental car from Dollar at Launceston Airport. 

The weather here is a warm and temperate climate with above-average rainfall. Be sure to bring a sense of adventure and some waterproof clothing while on your vacation so you don’t miss out due to the weather. 

Road Trips with Dollar

Easily one of the most popular road trips from Launceston is to Cradle Mountain. Reaching 1,545 metres above sea level, Cradle Mountain is a spectacular sight for visitors all year round. Named after its resemblance to a gold mining cradle, it’s also a unique way to commemorate the mining history in Tasmania. 

Cradle Mountain has four named summits: Cradle Mountain, Smithies Peak which is 1,527 metres high, Weindorfers Tower, at 1459 metres high, and Little Horn which is 1,355 metres above sea level. All four peaks tower above the ground below, so take it all in if you try the Dove Lake walk. 

Cradle Mountain is located in Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, an area of unique and wildly rugged natural beauty. In fact, it is an iconic landmark situated at the core of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. 

This national park also demonstrates three glacial stages that have taken place over the past 2-million years. This fascinating piece of geological history is also shown by the nearby Lake St Clair, which is the largest freshwater lake in Australia; the two formations give evidence to its formation. 

You can easily get to Cradle Mountain from Launceston via the National Highway 1 and B12. Be sure to take in all the wild nature as you venture here - it’s breathtaking.
