Australia is the land of ‘road trippin’. Get ‘off the beaten’ track in a 4WD and discover ancient landscapes. We have many years of experience designing holidays that take in the unique contrasts of Australia. Without the need to visit every ‘highlight’ as promoted in the well-known guide books.

The question is ‘what size car suits you?’ Compact, Medium or Large. We can help you make this decision.

Take it easy and soak up Australia’s finest scenery. Travel in a compact SUV with maximum fuel efficiency. Affordable and comfortable, our vehicles are less than 6 months old. Easy to get in and out. And offering fantastic views, so you won’t miss a thing.

We offer full insurance with no gravel road restrictions. And, we know all about the best scenic routes, driving times and distances. Depending on your situation, a compact SVU is okay for a small family. Or if you are a larger group and would like to take multiple cars.

We also recommend taking domestic flights during your journey to Australia. Since the distances are so large, this means you will save time and see more. Each flight is less than a few hours and the diversity of landscape is immense.

Our hire cars include insurance with $0 excess as standard. Please note: there are other insurance limitations to consider.
