Do I have to pay more for additional drivers?
No, any additional drivers are covered under your daily rate, however they must be included on your rental agreement to be covered for insurance purposes. This includes their details and licence number.
If any drivers are under the age of 26, there are restrictions to what kind of vehicle you can hire. A surcharge of $6 applies if you are between 21-26 years old.
Do any fees apply for having an international drivers licence?
A daily fee of $5 will apply if you have an international drivers licence, with the exception of drivers who hold a New Zealand or U.K. driver’s licence.
How can I reduce my liability for accidents?
Standard third party insurance is included in your car hire, but we also offer excess reduction at a small cost for your peace of mind. In the event of an accident it reduces your financial liability.
Check the options available when booking online or call us on +61 8 9472 4222 for more information about reducing your damage liability.
Can I return the vehicle at another location?
Yes, however a relocation fee will be applied should you wish to drop off your car at a location other than your original collection point. This is to cover the cost of delivering the vehicle back to its allocated location, where it will be due for another collection.
Do I have to pay for fuel?
It is expected that you return the vehicle at the same fuel level from when you first collected it.
Failure to refuel the vehicle at the same fuel level will result in a $50.00 administration fee plus the cost to refuel the car.
Will I be charged based on the kilometres driven?
As part of your daily rate, every car rental includes 100KM travel distance per day.
Beyond 100KMs you will be charged $0.28 per KM, or you have the choice to purchase “Extra KMs or Unlimited KMs” from the options menu when making a booking.
Will I be charged for cancelling my booking?
You won’t be charged a cancellation fee if you cancel your reservation at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled pick up date.
If you need to cancel a booking for December, you must give us at least 7 day’s notice, otherwise booking cancellation fees, equivalent to 1 day hire charges will apply.
Should you need to cancel your booking, please contact our friendly reservations team on +61 8 9472 4222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do any fees apply for returning the vehicle late?
Unless extension arrangements have been made, you are required to return the vehicle at the agreed day/ time as stated on your rental agreement or risk a late fee.
If you don’t need to extend your car rental and you are late, you’ll be charged an additional $15 per hour. Late returns longer than 2 hours will be subject to the full daily rental rate.
To extend your vehicle hire simply call our friendly team on +61 8 9472 4222. Extensions are subject to availability.
Why have I been charged a cleaning fee?
We provide clean and well-maintained vehicles and expect all cars to be returned in the same condition as per when you first collected it.
If the rented vehicle is returned in a dirty condition, with visible dog or cat hair, or evidence of cigarette odours, a $50.00 cleaning fee will apply for small cars or $100.00 for SUVs, Utes and vans.
