  1. Rented from Avis at Perth airport for convenience on arrival. No problems recommending them but they are expensive. Our Holden station wagon was not available so we were upgraded to a big Nissan 4x4 which was great for all the luggage. Swapped out to Bayswater car rental who run a fleet of new Toyota Corollas at a much lower cost than Avis and are quite close to the airport. Their spin is that getting a taxi from the airport to their place is still going to save you money compared to renting from a major at the airport. They do satnav too for $5 a day but I don't think they do child seats (we already had a hire arranged for ours separately) Only "issue" is that they will charge the insurance excess to your card at the start of the hire and refund it when you drop it off so there good be a currency gain / loss as a result, but if a Corolla is big enough for your needs then definitely give them a shout.
  2. Hello!!!!! My boyfriend and I are travelling from Melbourne to Cairns April - May 2014 (and then settling in Melbourne afterwards), NEVER travelled in a campervan or to Oz so any hints or tips would be VERY very welcome haha :yes:! Also...debating on a campervan with a shower and toilet (or not!)...is this needed as I've seen many people say that there are plenty of public amenities along the way, and it's pointless paying the extra??:confused: Do we need to pre book camp sites in advance and if so how long in advance? We're quite open with regards to the trip/length of stay at each place so not quite sure how to tackle this one! ANY info would be greatly received! Thanks in advance :wub: Xx

    Car hire in canberra?

    We are arriving in Canberra at the start of November and the cost of buying a car is kind of making our eyes water especially after the cost of the actual move... We were looking at possibly renting a car on a longer term? Is this possible or is it a really expensive way of doing things? We just thought rather than sending a load of money and losing on rubbish exchange rate, we may rent for a bit? Does this make sense. Does anyone have any experience of this or got a great car hire deal from a good website or locally? Also - are auctions a good way of getting a car or not worth the risk? Angela

    Canberra hotel and 1 way car hire help

    Hi, we'll be validating next April / May and wonder if anybody has any recommendations for a hotel / apartment in Canberra for 6 nights that won't break the bank? Also, we're looking at hiring a car whilst we're in Canberra but ideally would like to drop it back at Tullamarine airport on the way back (we'll be flying into Canberra but are looking at driving back down to Melbourne). Does anybody know the best place that will hire from Canberra but let us drop off at Melbourne? Thanks a lot

  11. Hi, my oh is going out first at the end of next month and we have been looking into hiring a car to start with, however all the sites I have looked at they want a swipe of your credit card, however we don't have one, we do however, have one of those prepay mastercards but I don't know if that would do the job or not and if so, how much would I need to have on it for it to be used. Any advice please???? :cute:

  16. Hi there everyone, Just a quick question, we have just been sorting a hire car out for a week for when we arrive in Brisbane on 24th August and we were just about to book and the man on the phone mentioned all the things needed when we collect the car from the airport, driving licence etc and a credit card, I wasnt going to say anything I would just have used my debit card for the account here in the UK but something made me ask if I could do that and they replied NO! I said what are we supposed to do? we havent got a credit card and for someone to presume everyone has a credit card well thats not right, can anyone help or are we going to be stuck until we get a car? we planned on getting a car bought within a week or so anyway. but I dont know what to do, we will land with our 2 children and cant get to our holiday home and have no transport to get anywhere aaaarrrgggghhh:arghh:. Please please please can anyone suggest something anything? Surely there has been someone other than us in this type od situation, another hurdle to get over as if we arent stressed enogh eh? ha ha ha typical us tho! Thanks for listening to me go on The Hayes Family:sad:who are nearly in the Sunshine Coast. By the way we dont know anyone when we get there and the cheeky bloke on the phone of Car hire 3000 said get someone you know to pick you up IDIOT:realmad:
