    Hot from me eggles. For those that dont mind driving its a very cheap way to get from one place to another.

    You can do that Broome / Perth in 24 hours so feasibly you could stop at Karijini or somewhere like that for a day given their time allocation.

    That's amazing - I don't get the fuel thing ... do they give you $$ for fuel as well?

    Gotta be careful around Pilbara / Kimberley though because there is nearly always a restriction on going off road and where the hell are you going to go around there if not offroad?

    $300 in fuel was my reading of it.

    They only know you've gone offroad if you manage to prang the car is my theory :)

    yeah - good theory donkey, only prob is that the chances of something going wrong is actually pretty high & it's not so easy to just sneak the car back onto the bitumen and pretend nothing went down.

    Just reading over the terms and conditions - standby cars are a booking agent and you can potentially have the car booked out from under you by the rental company themselves. Under 25's pay a surcharge, :D - no upgrade or other coupons will be accepted. Ha - dont like these ones - a booking fee of $25 is charged by standby cars and cancellation will cost you the $25 plus holding fee of $75. They sting you even more for 4WD's 7 to 14 days prior to pick up – 25% of gross rental (minimum $200.00). Less than 7 days prior to pick up – 55% of gross rental. If cancelled on the day of pick up or a no show – NO REFUND

    There had to be a catch didn't there. I like that they charge you a % of the gross rental if you cancel, which is going to be all of maybe $15 at those prices, but then they put a minimum of $200 on it. That's cheeky ... they want to have their cake and eat it too.
    Anyone know an easy online way of accessing those kind of deals straight from the rental companies themselves and not through a booking agent?

    Thanks Smithy :) Looks like this is a duplicated deal post. Will expire this one. If anyone wants to add comments, please see the old thread.

    You seem to be confusing the deal with a full rental.
    What you are quoting for cancellations is for a full rental and these are passed on from the suppliers. We don't make any money at all from cancellations and the suppliers have the same terms.
    We would be more than happy to help you.
