Inexpensive car hire in Canberra?

By Paul0075 - 6 January 2013 6

Hi Guys,

I am looking for some advice on inexpensive car hire in the ACT region.

When I need a hire car in Perth or Sydney, I use Bayswater (No Birds) hire. They do Corollas for under 300 for 7 days including excess reduction. I am looking for someone who will do hire for similar rates in Canberra. Car model is not really a big deal, provided it’s reliable and with AC.

I am not looking specifically for 7 days of hire, but more interested in weekends, etc.

Suggestions welcome. Thanks.

What’s Your opinion?

If you just want a cheap car for some occasional use, have a look at the Fyshwick online auction site http://www.allbids.com.au.

You shouldn’t have much trouble picking up something there for around $1,000 with a bit of rego on it.

Most of their cars are dealer trade-ins which the dealer sends straight to the allbids auctions. I have picked up some good cars very, very cheaply there in the last couple of years. Downside is no warrantty, but you will find that they are very honest with their descriptions of the vehicles, and you can go there to check them out before the online auction ends.

G’day Paul,
When I first got to Canberra I hired a small car off Mister Cheap Courtesy Cars

Sounds like what I am after there Stereo. I am considering the pros and cons of keeping a car in Canberra at the moment, and seeing whether it’s worth biking, walking and bussing and just hiring a car for those trips further afield.

G’day Paul,
When I first got to Canberra I hired a small car off Mister Cheap Courtesy Cars (details below). He was VERY cheap I paid $200 a week. The cars aren’t very modern and his business is run out of a shed in Fyshwick so it seems dodge but honestly he was great. My car was a 90’s model lancer, a/c and ran very well.

I did manage to run the battery flat one morning and I made one call to Mister Cheap and he came out straight away, swapped the battery and I was back on the road. Price was my only consideration and he was the cheapest by a mile. Might be worth a call. His details are below.
