Rent a car in Ballina with Europca

Enjoy affordable and convenient car hire and a seamless start to your trip at Europcar Ballina from our two rental stations in the city. Our airport office is located within the arrivals area of the terminal building and is just five minutes’ drive from the centre of Ballina. Reaching us from the city is easy, with a regular shuttle bus service running between town and the airport. Our second office is just outside the airport, and easily reached by road or bus.

We have a car to suit you, whatever it is you need it for, and wherever you’re travelling to – just around the corner, across the city or even further afield. Choose a small city car to get you from A to B when you need a budget option for a short journey or local sightseeing around Ballina – visit the ‘big prawn’ for a wacky photo opportunity!

And if you’re heading out of town on a longer journey, hire one of our larger family cars or SUVs to get you there in comfort. Why not head to Byron Bay for a day of sun, sea and surfing?

Our flexible short and long term hire options, affordable pricing, and choice of vehicles all add up to a great value deal. And for total convenience, you can pick up and drop off at different locations to suit you. What are you waiting for!

Travel safely

As part of our safety program, all our vehicles are rigorously cleaned with organic disinfectants and we do everything to offer you a contactless experience.

Discover Ballina surroundings and beyond with your Europcar rental car

Nearby Byron Bay may be better known, but Ballina has its own charms including beautiful beaches, museums, Killen Falls, and the Thursday Plantation. It’s also a great base for exploring the surrounding area using your rental car.

Nature lovers should head 150km north to the World Heritage-listed Springbrook National Park for a tranquil day in the wilderness amongst rainforests, waterfalls, and dramatic gorges. Don’t miss Natural Arch Bridge where a waterfall tumbles through a hole in the rock formation (the arch) and into the caves below which are lit up at night by the thousands of resident glow worms!

If you fancy a more peaceful alternative to the popular surf beaches of Surfers Paradise and Byron Bay, an hour’s drive up the coast will get you to Coolangatta Beach. Coolangatta is a small town but a lovely place to spend a day relaxing on the beach, walking along the park that stretches along the waterfront, and maybe even spotting whales and dolphins!

Awesome Activities

To discover the joys of Richmond river, hire a boat and plan a peaceful day of swimming, sightseeing and fishing. If you prefer eating to catching, choose a barbeque boat instead and cook up a feast on-board. Stick to dry land with a romantic horse ride along the beaches or view Ballina from a whole new angle, with a helicopter flight over the area. And for the brave, there are plenty of skydiving opportunities on offer.

Beautiful Ballina

Be sure to spend an afternoon at the Thursday Plantation during your stay. There you’ll find many natural remedies as well as a rainforest garden and sculpture park to enjoy. For even greater natural beauty, use your Ballina hire car to take a 45 minute drive to the stunning Nightcap National Park and Whian Whian State Conservation Area. Also nearby are the spectacular Killen Falls, which are widely known as one of Ballina’s hidden gems.
