I was planning on doing a road trip from Alice Springs to Uluru with a couple of friends (4 in total) - following this drive trail in April:
Flying into and out of Alice Springs from Melbourne.
We're all students so trying to keep costs low as possible - so we are looking for a compact/economy automatic car. Kind of having trouble finding a car hire that offers unlimited kms. A lot of them (Budget, Hertz, Thrifty and Europcar - based on their respective online websites) just offer 700km, but a one way trip between Alice Springs to Uluru is about 500km (without detours).
Any suggestions/tips of where to look for unlimited km cars that won't bust the bank?
Also any tips about our planned route of driving? Is there any hostels you recommend along the way?
