Freedom to travel again- ain't it great!

Freedom to travel again- ain't it great!Welcome back to the Sunshine Coast. After a pretty rough couple of years for so many people, it is great to see the smiling faces again of so many long term customers, those who have re-connected with us and those who are hiring cars with us for the first time.

A number of things have changed as a result of Covid - 19. In order to reduce and minimise face to face contact for health reasons and maximise safety for staff and customers alike, we have switched to a 'minimum contact' model. No longer do we pick up our customers and bring them back to our office to complete the booking process. Instead it is all completed online before your arrival. Generally our customers will now finalise their bookings with us and pay for their hire the day before we supply the car. Handover of the car is therefore streamlined and our customers are on their way within minutes of receiving the car; generally at the Sunshine Coast Airport. This process is much quicker and easier for our customers and is proving to be a very popular process.

Vehicle return options may vary, depending on the time of day, however we now ask that during Office Hours, after refueling the car locally, customers drop off family and luggage at the Sunshine Coast Airport Terminal. The hirer then returns to our office where a staff member will Check In the car and drive the hirer back to the departures terminal. A quick and trouble free process.*
