Hiring a car?

Hi all,

Just wondering what the best option is for hiring a car at Palm Cove? Just for 2 -3 days and I think we can organize it through the accommodation but wondering if better to hire through the company direct...........maybe Avis or something? Any help is much appreciated. Thanks,

Plenty of car rentals at Cairns Airport or in the city. If you arriving by plane it would be more sensible to just pick the car up at the airport and drive directly to Palm Cove and return it to the airport.

Avis / Hertz / Budget etc.etc.

We always get a car through Hertz (RACV give further discounts) and have been really happy with them. Our relatives hired a car last year through East Coast Car Rentals (depot near airport so less convenient but they do pick you up etc. and are quite cheap)

Website link is: http://www.eastcoastcarrentals.com.au.
