Such a flourless experience. Such a great interaction… Highly recommend
Jasbinder B.
Fast checkin, they gave me a clean car, answered all my questions. Didn’t try to sell me any of their insurance products, just discussed the options. Return was super quick as well. I will rent from here again if I go back to Cairns

The man at the counter who had to deal with me being exasperated after realising I couldn’t drive the 7-seater car I accidentally hired was lovely and helped me find a car that was within my limited driving/parking capabilities. 5/5 did not outwardly judge or ridicule me even though it would have been warranted
Nathan H.
Great service and easy to use service. Good selection of cars and easy access out of Cairns Airport. Highly recommend!
