Quick Tip: Difference Between Sealed and Unsealed Roads
- Sealed Roads
Sealed roads are recognised as properly formed and constructed road surfaces made with materials such as tar, bitumen, or concrete.
- Unsealed Roads
Unsealed roads are categorised as routes accessible by vehicles that are not sealed, metalled, or gravel roads. Therefore, driving routes such as, fire trails, beaches, sand, tracks, fields, paddocks, etc, are not to be accessed with a rental vehicle.
Top Tip: Always thoroughly peruse the individual terms and conditions of the supplier. If you have any concerns relating to where you are planning on driving, please consult the supplier prior to pick up.
We hope this assists drivers and car hire customers in understanding the types of roads that are classified and referred to within the car hire industry.
