Hi, I would absolutely love to complete the survey but your website comes up but no survey option. We had a wonderful holiday but what made it better was the hire of an Alpha car. Everything was completed when we arrived, there was no waiting and the car was ready. It couldn't have been a better start. We had a great car and very economical. So, thank you so much for helping us have a fantastic holiday. Kind regards catherine t.Catherine , May 2013

Q: Do I need to check the condition of the vehicle prior to leaving the keys at the counter office?
Yes, you do need to check the vehicle's condition prior to leaving the office. This is part of the process in renting a vehicle to ensure you are aware of what condition the vehicle is in when you collect it. One of our Rental Sales Officers will walk around the vehicle with you and mark off any pre-existing damage and this form requires the main driver's signature. If you disagree with any marks or damage that isn't listed, you need to tell one of our friendly staff members before you sign this.
When you return the vehicle, you need to walk around the vehicle again with one of our employees to ensure no damage has been made to the vehicle.
Q: Where can I not drive the rental vehicle?
There are some areas that limit where you take your rental vehicle.
If you hire a vehicle from one of Queensland branches, you can travel anywhere in Queensland as far North as Cairns. You can travel in New South Wales, ACT and in Victoria as far South as Melbourne. Travel is not permitted in South Australia, Western Australia or the Northern Territory.
