Rent a car in Townsville with Europcar

Townsville is located in Queensland, often known as the Sunshine State of Australia due to its year-round good weather. Renting a car at Europcar Townsville couldn’t be easier – choose from our two rental stations across the city.

Our airport rental office is conveniently located inside the terminal, opposite the baggage collection carousels. The airport is 10 minutes from the centre of Townsville, and if you need public transport the Airport Shuttle provides a pick-up and drop off service from the airport to/from city hotels and the Magnetic Island Ferry Terminal for all major flights seven days per week.

Our city office is located at 303 Ingham Rd Garbutt, 5km from the central business district and 2km from Townsville Airport.

We offer a friendly, flexible service with daily, weekly and monthly car rental options covering both short and long-term car hire needs. Planning a one-way trip? No problem, with Europcar you can return your hire car to one of our other rental stations at your destination rather than having to travel back to where you hired it.

City driving, day trips, or long road trips – whatever you’re planning on using your rental car for, we’ve got the vehicle for you! Our fleet includes budget small cars, large family cars and prestige models, so you’re sure to find what you need.

Our choice of vehicles, flexible deals and convenient locations all add up to a great service, so 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 Gold Coast surroundings and beyond with your Europcar rental car

With more than 320 days of sunshine a year, it’s not difficult to see why Townsville would be a popular destination for visitors! Plus it’s a popular starting point for boat trips to the Great Barrier Reef. Things to do obviously revolve mostly around the beach, water sports and boat trips, but the town itself has its own attractions – the Museum of Tropical Queensland, the Army Museum, and Castle Hill are all worth a visit while you’re here.

Getting out and about in your rental car, there’s much more to explore in Queensland. Travel 90 minutes south to Ravenswood, once a thriving gold mining town, now preserved as a fascinating tourist attraction. The best way to explore is on foot – wander around the mixture of ruins and preserved buildings and informative signage will give you information about the most significant sites. Don’t worry, the town isn’t entirely abandoned and around 100 people live here and run local businesses to support the tourist trade – including a pub!

Two hours north of Townsville is Cardwell, where the naturally bright blue pools of Five Mile Swimming Hole and Cardwell Spa Pools make for an unusual swimming experience. The colour comes from the minerals the water passes through as it seeps up from far underground and is truly sensational – get your camera at the ready!

With 70 years of experience in car rental, Europcar is the European leader in car rental. To find out more, visit our dedicated car rental page! And for details of our great value van rental service, take a look at our van rental page.
