CarHire.com.au only uses companies that have a presence at most of the domestic and international airports. Why? So that you have easy access and convenience with car hire pick up and drop off. Research world wide indicates that more than price, yes, I said more than price, renters are deeply concerned with the pick up and drop off experience. By using companies that have a presence at the Airport one of the biggest concerns is eliminated.
As important as airports is the country wide network. Companies that provide a country wide network can support "one way" car rentals, frequently demanded by the independent traveller. Combine country wide locations with airport pick up and or drop off and you have a winning combination for the total rental experience and great prices with our guaranteed price promise.
Don't be fooled by many local "cheap" providers. They often use "bait and switch" tactics. They quote low prices but hit you with a ton of extras. Few offer one way rentals and most do not have unlimited mileage programs. Vehicle that are older than two years can be a real headache and without 24 hour support make a mis-hap a disaster for your holiday, vacation or business trip. Don't take the chance.
Combined, the companies that we represent cover virtually all of the country and all airports. They only use late model vehicles and have a 24 hour a day emergency service. If you really compare all the costs you will find that Avis, Thrifty, Europcar and Hertz offer the best value for money deals country wide and year round. Compare for yourself!
