If any of you guys need to or would like to drive any of these routes, Europcar is offering one way rentals for a total of $1 with basic protection (fuel excluded) from selected locations. Current routes are:
* from Darwin Airport to Alice Springs Airport between 20th of March & 30th of April 2017 (9 vehicles available). They give you 120 hours rental to do 2000 km.
* from Perth Airport to Broome Airport between the 17th of April & 31st of May 2017 (10 vehicles available). They give you 168 hours to deliver the car to the destination (2800 km)
The base price is $1, but you'll have to pay for extras such as additional driver, child seat, GPS navigation system, etc. and a surcharge for young drivers apply (under 25).
As an example, an additional driver would cost $28.77 to drive the Perth - Broome route over 7 days and a child seat would be an extra $77. That's a total of $106.77 for the family, but if you're going with your spouse or a mate, the price would be only $29.77 for the entire trip (as long as you're both over 25, excluding extras and fuel costs).
