Any advice on best hire car company in Port Douglas would be very appreciated. Just for a day or two.
We usally go with Avis as they have an office at the airport so you can use the car for your return trip to the airport. Thrifty also have offices at port and the airport.
oh, thanks for that, sounds good :)
Also compare Budget (their office in Port is next door to Avis), we sometimes find them to be cheaper . . . . .
There are a few car rentals in Port Douglas and you would be best to compare all prices. Besides the likes of Avis and Budget there are a few local companies that will deliver great service.
I had planned to pick up my car from Hertz in Cairns and drive to PD. I am getting in much later than I thought because they cancelled my flight and put me on a later one that stops in Brisbane. It will be a long night. I am confused because I did not realize there was an airport in PD. If the airport is at Cairns I hope I am not misled that there is a Hertz counter. I will be arriving very late.
no airport in PD. airport car rental desks will usually remain open to cater to all arriving flights.Edited: 27 May 2011, 02:57
check with hertz that they will still be open and give them new flight details.
I went with Budget (in PD not the airport) when I was there the other week as I use them a lot here in Melbourne. To me the service was friendly, well because you're on holiday and it's a nice slow town so people usually have time to answer any q's you have!
Don't remember the cost, but usually they are cheaper than the other majors. Otherwise go for eastcoast car rentals. The prices I saw for them are really cheap!
