    Hi there :) I've moved this to transport for you.

     

    I recall a few members recommending a car hire place on here but can't recall the name of it off the top of my head. I'll try to dig up the info on it and post back later. Also I am sure once the Aus side awakens a few people will be along with suggestions for you.

     

    Is this a holiday reccie trip? :) and enjoy. Look forward to hearing about it. This time of year I start to miss a but of warmth and sunlight and have to hear from family about all their summer weather :P

    One thing you need to watch with car hire insurance is the excess they charge. This is where they offer extra insurance to help reduce the excess.

    We booked our car with cartrawler.com they quote £4.97 a day excess insurance.

    This covers

    Also watch out for the charge for extra drivers around $11 dollars a day

    I highly recommend budget car hire http://www.budget.com.au we have used them a couple of times personally and visiting family have used them too. very reasonable prices, new and well maintained cars, quick key handover and we have never had a problem with them. they have depots at the airport, Reynella, and up north somewhere.

    Try Micks Autos at Aldinga couldn't fault the service at all.

    Quite a few people on here have recommended him.

    Good luck.

     

    I would second this, excellent service and recommended by lots of forum members.

     

    Chris.

    We are hiring via carhire 3000 but didn't take the extra excess cover. The excesses in Oz are much higher than in Europe. We covered it instead with an annual excess cover policy from carhireexcess.com. Cost £49 for a full year worldwide. Cheaper than the cover from Carhire and we can use it for other trips during the year too.
