Car hire in Australia and the Pacific
There's no better way to explore Down Under than by carRent a car in Australia
Australia is a dream backdrop for a car hire driving holiday. Start out from Sydney to cruise up past the Blue Mountains; Melbourne for a dramatic coastal drive along the Mornington Peninsula; or Cairns to explore the eucalyptus-infused tranquillity of Cape Tribulation and the Far North Queensland rainforest. Take to the Gold Coast for a surfing safari, while outback adventures can launch from Adelaide, Alice Springs or Darwin. Or what about gliding between the gorgeously secluded wineries of the Margaret River, just south of Perth?
Rent a car in New Zealand
New Zealand, now also known as Middle Earth, or Narnia, is another nation ideally suited to the hire car self-driver. A circular trip on famously empty roads from Christchurch on the South Island, for example, reveals geothermal hot springs, glaciers, canyons, glow worm caves, magnificent lakes and fjords.
Even further off-piste, you can hire a car with Avis on most of the Pacific Islands you can name, from American Samoa to Vanuatu. In many of these destinations, without regular bus services or trains, your own wheels are vital to get around. Explore paradise at your leisure.
