Just a word of caution - before hiring a car and sign on the contract, make sure you read the T&C very carefully expecially the insurance and accident excess. Some car rental keep their rates very low but only good when you returned the car in good condition. You will have to pay a lot more the moment you involved in an accident.

I have a friend who hired from Bayswater and the windscreen got hit by a stone while driving down south, that's when he regretted big time. I use to hire from Bayswater because they were so cheap but nowadays only AVIS or Hertz.

Remember once I had a burst tyre when hiring from AVIS in Perth. They suppose to charge my excess but they just waived off the extra charge. No way for smaller rental companies to do that!
