Top tips for hiring a car in Chatswood

About to hire a car in Chatswood? Here are a few top tips to keep in mind.

Sydney road rules and driving conditions

Before hitting the road in Sydney, familiarise yourself with Australian road rules and regulations. Remember that Australians drive on the left-hand side of the road, seatbelts must be worn at all times and pay attention to speed limits and other road signs to ensure a safe and enjoyable driving experience.

If you're driving in regional areas, be aware that animals and wildlife can wander onto the roads. Be sure to drive to the speed limit and do not swerve suddenly, as this can cause cars to roll off the road. Plus, full-license drivers in NSW have a legal BAC (Blood Alcohol Concentration) limit of under 0.05.

Chatswood's rush hour and busiest roads

As a major suburb on Sydney's lower North Shore, Chatswood does experience congestion on the roads. Victoria Avenue tends to be the busiest road in Chatswood, along with the Pacific Highway and Mowbray Road.

These roads tend to see the highest levels of congestion during weekday peak hours (6 am to 10 am and 4 pm to 7 pm). If possible, aim to hit the road outside of these high-traffic hours.

Are there toll roads around Chatswood?

There are a number of toll roads surrounding Chatswood, including the Hills M2, the Lane Cove Tunnel and the Harbour Tunnel. On Turo, you can rest assured that your rental car will be fitted out with an e-tag to make navigating these toll roads smooth and straightforward.

Parking in Chatswood

Expect to find plenty of both on-street and off-street parking options in Chatswood. In the Chatswood CBD, on-street parking spots use a Park'nPay system, allowing you to download a mobile app to pay for parking and receive alerts when your time slot is about to expire.

Plus, you'll find a number of secure off-street parking stations at Westfield Chatswood, Chatswood Chase and a number of Wilson Parking Stations around the Chatswood CBD, too.

Do I need to hire a car in Chatswood?

While Chatswood does have a bus network and is serviced by a train station, the most convenient way to explore Chatswood, Sydney and greater New South Wales is behind the wheel of your own hire car. Arrange a custom drop off pick up location with your local Turo host, even if you're renting a car last minute.
