    Default Car hire- Cairns Xmas period

    Was wondering if anyone knew of any other car hire specialists apart from the usual group up in Cairns. Left my run a bit late and all the usual companies are sold out. Will be looking from the 26/12 to the 5/1. Maybe a fellow frogger might be able to help out as google isn't very assisting today.

    Many thanks if any help could be forthcoming

    Try the Yellow Pages. There are a few local companies up there (Airport Rent a Car is one from memory although I haven't been to Cairns in the past 12 months or so) plus the inevitable "rent a wrecks".

    Wouldn't recommend Cairns Older Car Hire. They reniged on an agreement I made to purchase a series 1 Mi16 from them.

    I have tried all online functions and they are completely out, as I'm landing Xmas day all other options will be shut. Managed to wrangle a hired ute, not as practical as I wanted and at $650 for 7 days hire will have to do. Thanks for all those that offered suggestions and hope you have a safe break.
    Cheers

    I booked my 8 seater van a few months back. They called me to make sure I still wanted it.

    Last week I tried to add a Hyundai Getz 'runabout' but it was as expensive as the Van!

    Cairns is busy this time of year

    Merry Christmas
