Car Hire in Brisbane

by meerkat101

Hi

I've just joined and it looks as though VT is a really friendly place.

Has anyone any tips or warnings about car hire in Brisbane. We're visiting in January and will have to rent a car for a couple of weeks to get to friends in Mitchell so we'll need unlimited Ks. I'm happy to go for Hertz or another major but I get confused by the CDW requirements and would rather not get an expensive shock when we come to pay.

We're really looking forward to our visit.

Thanks for any help and advise you can offer.

I don't know about how the UK credit cards work, but many of our American ones include the CDW insurance for overseas rentals, as long as you DECLINE that part of the insurance at the time of pick-up; so check that out--could save you a bunch.

Re: Car Hire in Brisbane

There are many car hire companies in Brisbane including all the majors e.g. Hertz, Avis, Europcar etc. Thrifty is one I have tried in the past when I have had to put my car in for a long service, they seem to be fine. Info at:

www.thrifty.com.au

There are many cheaper companies but some of them have a limit on how far from Brisbane you can take the car so this would probably not be suitable as Mitchell is most certainly further away than the limit which is something like 300kms.

Hope you enjoy Brisbane and Queensland in general. Be prepared for the heat in January.

Hi there

I think most of the major car hire companies in Australia offer unlimited kilometers. We hire cars whenever we travel in Australia through Avis or other major companies and have always had unlimited kilometers. Regarding CDW, all of the major companies appear to not quote on this in the initial pricing when you book online. It is always on the final page as an add-on cost to your booking. Still, if you decide to take this option or not, the final price quoted, should be concrete and won't change from there. We always pay the CDW just in case!

It would be worth checking whether your airline has any partner deals too. For instance, Virgin Blue have a partnership deal with Eurocar I believe. However, even with that I have always found Avis or other companies cheaper but it is worth checking out. Perhaps consider joining one of the major car hire companies clubs if you are likely to want to hire cars often. That will sometimes get you a better deal.

If you are likely to be doing a lot of driving, it would probably be better to go with something with a reasonable engine size too. If you are going for a 4 cylinder car, go for at least a 1.8 litre engine because of the distances you have to travel. Without wanting to tell you how to suck eggs, it is also worth considering how much luggage you need to fit in too when choosing the size of car you want.

Hope you enjoy Brissy!

Cheers

Liz

Welcome to vt Authur! This is a friendly site so stick around and share your holiday adventures with us :o) As the others said, if you go with any reputable car hire company, you shouldn't have a problem.

My suggestion is to pay with your credit card. That way, if they do charge you for any transaction that you have not authorised, then you can dispute it through your Bank.

Have a great holiday!!
Cheers,
Ann :o)

Water Dragons

by stevemt

The water Dragons are seen all around Brisbane where there is water.

These lizards are semi-aquatic, using their laterally-compressed tails to propel them when swimming. They are able to remain submerged for long periods of time. Like many lizards, water dragons have a parietal eye, a light-sensitive "third eye" located in the top of the head.

They are frequently seen round the river on sunny days sunbathing, and also at Mt Cootha Gardens with the numerous water features there.

Just a taste of this paradise...

by MVMT

Just a taste of this paradise will leave you feeling charmed and captivated. Spanning 124 kilometres and covering an area of 163 000 hectares, Fraser Island has developed over 800 000 years. It is a unique natural environment - the largest sand island in the world and the only place on the planet where rainforest grows from sand. Rich Aboriginal heritage and a colourful European history are integral to Fraser Island. This combination makes this island one of the most rare and mysterious features of Queensland’s coastline.

Fraser Island’s abundant pristine fresh water lakes and crystal clear creeks are great spots to view unique flora and fauna and also provide a welcome oasis on hot summer days. Scenic 4WD circuits and walking tracks take in some of the largest of the lakes including McKenzie, Birrabeen, Benaroon, Boomanjin and the spectacular perched Lake Wabby.

An exceptional range of flora is found on the Island. Cool and peaceful rainforests of towering Satinay and Brush Box trees, some over 1000 years old, contrast withswampy wetlands, heathlands full of wild flowers and coastal stands of Pandanus palms. Fraser Islands home to a range of animals. Visitors can expect to see some of the 325 species of birds, several species of wallaby, possums, flying foxes, echidnas and Eastern Australia’s purest breed of dingo. The warm waters surrounding the Island attract dugong, dolphins and turtles.
