book car rental while in uk, or wait til in oz????

Recommended Posts

Advice needed from you all, not sure which would be better deal for us. Do we book car rental from uk before we go to Melbourne or do we wait til we get there and just go to hire a car when we land?

 

Any advice greatly appreciated. :cryxmas:

Hi there!

 

I'd imagine that you'd get a wider choice and a better deal by booking car hire online in advance.

 

Hope that helps!

Definately better to book online before you get there, you can get great deals and saves time and stress when you land. I have done both ways and it was a mistake to not pre book. Don't forget to book in child seats if u need them (you will have to pay a bit extra normally) Good luck

another vote for booking before you go from me, personally i was knackered after the flight and it was nice to have a car waiting for me that i could jump in and drive to the hotel rather than messing about round the airport trying to find hire desks and good deals.

 

All i had to do was ring for mine after i'd got through customs and they picked me up there.

Hi

Book before you go.

www.carhire3000.com

they are brokers and it worked out cheaper. We go a good car from Europe Car at the airport but it was cheaper.

Good luck
