Q: Should I book a car while on vacation in Australia?

A: Unless you're really into cars, public transportation or ride-sharing is probably the easiest and best way of getting around the buzzing streets of Sydney or Melbourne. With no pesky parking fees (or trips to the gas pump) to have to worry about, you'll be able to check out the city's popular sights with ease. If your aim is to hightail it out of town and take in the region of New South Wales or elsewhere, renting a vehicle is a terrific option. Browse our handy guide to Cheap Car Hire in Australia, book a set of wheels and get ready for the road trip of a lifetime.

Q: Which airports can I fly in to for a vacation to Australia?

A: International flights to Australia generally operate from one of these major airport terminals:

  • Sydney, NSW (SYD-Kingsford Smith Intl.): 2,971 international flights per month.
  • Melbourne, VIC (MEL-Tullamarine): 2,054 international flights per month.
  • Brisbane, QLD (BNE): 1,487 international flights per month.

Q: What does an Australia vacation booking with Expedia include?

A: Flights, a sweet ride and a place to lay your head for the night — we've got them covered. All you need to do is figure out what you'd like. With Expedia, you can shape your getaway to Australia just how you like it, with extra attractions and experiences on offer to boot.

Q: What is the best way to save money on my vacation to Australia?

A: One of the simplest ways to save dollars is to bundle your bookings with Expedia. Flights, Hotels and Car Rentals can all be easily combined into a neat package — and by doing this, you'll save precious time as well. Keep this in mind before you book.

Q: What are the best things to do in Australia?

A: A vacation that includes a stay in Sydney just wouldn't be complete if you didn't make time to see Sydney Opera House, Bondi Beach and Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Or, if you're spending time in Melbourne, many travelers make tracks for Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex, Melbourne Cricket Ground and St Kilda Beach.

And finally, if you're still looking for things to do in Australia, then it's time to find out what Brisbane can offer. Top visitor attractions here include Queen Street Mall, Roma Street Parkland and Suncorp Stadium.
