Kilometres / Area of use
Rentals up to 7 days have 200 free kilometres per day. Excess kilometres are charged at 30 cents per kilometre where applicable. Rentals 7 days or longer have unlimited kilometres within our standard area of use (between Noosa and Byron Bay). Our cars can be taken outside these areas but arrangements must be made prior to the commencement of your hire.
Comprehensive cover is included in the quoted rates, subject to the terms and conditions of the Rental Agreement. Standard Excess on all claims is $750 for all drivers 25 - 75 years with an additional $1200 for any driver between 21 and 24 years of age and 76 and 85 years of age. Overhead, underbody, interior and windscreen damage (however caused) is the full responsibility of the hirer.
Prices on this website are subject to change without notice.
We require a credit card pre authorisation of A$500 for each rental. This amount is not debited from your account, it's simply frozen. The funds are unfrozen and available to you within 3 - 4 days of the end of your hire.
If cancelled less than 7 days prior to pick up, 100% of deposit is forfeited.
If cancelled 7 to 14 days prior to pick up, 50% of deposit forfeited.
A charge equal to 20% of the daily rate per hour will be charged for late returns. Intention of returning late must be notified to our office, otherwise insurance cover ceases.
No refunds will be made if the vehicle is returned earlier than stated on Rental Agreement.
Vehicles must be returned with at least the same quantity as at start of hire or a refueling charge of $2.50 per litre will apply.
There are several toll bridges and roads in South East Queensland that you may pass through in your rental car. All our vehicles are registered for these toll roads so you do not need to do anything when you go through a tolling point - the electronic tag will register your trip.
When you drop off your car, please inform the office staff and pay for any tolls you have incurred during your hire period. Any tolls that remain unpaid after you leave will be charged to you with an administration service fee of $22.00.
We will make every effort to supply vehicle requested at time of booking, but we reserve the right to substitute an upgrade or similar standard of vehicle at no extra cost to the hirer.
We accept Visa, Mastercard and Amex. 5.5% surcharge applies to Amex. We also accept Debit cards.
