Car Rental Drop Off at Alice Springs airport??

Hi

Can anyone tell me any information on this?

Basically looking at renting a car in Ayers Rock and driving to Alice Springs , our flight to Perth the next morning is at 10am , the offices for hertz/avis only open at 9am , would we have enough time to drop car off and checkin/security in less than an hour?? Thrify opens at 8am alright but working out alot more expensive one way charge alone 600AUD.

We could drop it off the evening before perhaps , it just means we are cutting our exploring time as offices seem to close at 6pm so would have to make sure we are in AS for just before that??

You will absolutely have enough time to drop off this is a small airport. At worst you could check in and then take the car back if you were pressed for time. I assume you are on the 0950hr Qantas flight? You can check in at the latest 30 minutes prior to departure. Even if the desk is closed there is a drop off shute for the keys so it's really not an issue if the desk is not open.

With Qantas you can check in up to 24hrs prior via the internet or phone and then you just need to go to the bag drop area so it's very quick.
