Many car companies will not insure vehicles for travel on Bruny Island and the Western Explorer roads.
Car hire on the Western Explorer Route (from Corinna to Arthur River) is generally not allowed due to insurance restrictions. Fuel is also limited, with no fuel available on the Western Explorer between Marrawah and Zeehan. For more information on the Western Explorer Road, please view this brochure.
Bargain Car Rentals do allow hire cars to be taken onto Bruny Island, for no additional cost.
