My friend and I will be heading to Melbourne (& around) from 13 Feb - 16 Mar.
Our itinenary as follows:
13 Feb - 24 Feb - Drive to Adelaide from Melbourne (we land about 8am) via Great Ocean Road (spending about 7 nights on GOR - is it too long? and a couple nights in Adelaide and a couple of nights on Kangaroo Island
24 Feb - 4 Mar - Melbourne (Philip Islands and Mornington included)
5 Mar - 15 Mar - Fly in to Tasmania or take the ferry across (along with the car) have to fly back to Melbourne on 15 mar to catch our flight back to Singapore on 16 Mar
This is our first major road trip so there's a few questions that I'll like to ask - thank you for your advice in advanced!
1) which car rental company - i've read reviews on Hertz and Avis and they dont seem to have good reviews.. and can we drive the car we rent from Melbourne to a different state?
2) Should we rent the car throughout the trip, and take the ferry to Tasmania along with the car? Is it more cost efficient or should we fly in? Considering that we have luggage and have to pay for baggage cost if we take budget airline i.e Jetstar
3) Is the itinenanry feasible? Something that is not too rushed.
Thank you for all your help!
