    Factors impacting the cost of hiring a wedding car

    The type of car

    The type of car a couple chooses for use on their wedding day makes a big difference in their wedding car hire cost. For example, the price to hire Rolls Royce sedans and Bentley sedans start from $700 for 3 hours. However, hiring a Classic limousine can be as high as $800 for a minimum of 3 hours.


    How many cars you need 

    Couples in Australia usually spend $800 to $1200 for wedding cars and transportation on average. That covers two to three vehicles. Each additional car can cost about $500. So the more cars that Australian couples hire for their wedding party can make their transportation costs increase exponentially. About 45% of couples hire one wedding car while about 35% hire two or more, depending on the number of people they need to transport.


    How long you need the car/s for 

    The length of time you need your wedding cars to transport people from the wedding ceremony and to the reception will impact wedding car hire prices. The cost to hire one wedding car averages between $400 and $800 for 3-hour blocks of time. So the price can double if the vehicles are needed for more than 3 hours. 



    The location of the city in Australia where couples get married has a significant impact on the cost of their wedding car. It can range from as low as $400 for 3 hours in areas in Tasmania to $1,200 or more to cities in New South Wales. The wedding limo hire Sydney price is higher than anywhere else in Australia. Wedding car hire is particularly expensive in Sydney if couples want a Bentley, Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead or a luxury Mercedes stretch limousine.

    Price estimates for different types of wedding cars

    Another factor impacting the price of wedding cars in Australia is the make and model of wedding vehicles. Some examples of the different prices include:


    Vintage and classic cars: average around $500 to $900 for 3 hours

    Limousines: average around $500 to $900 for 3 hours

    Hummer: From $450 an hour to $1,800 for 8 hours

    Modern bridal wedding cars: average around $300 to $700 for 3 hours
