Destination: Ipswich Queensland Let's go

Quick visit to do a three hour sessions at Sid's Place new facility in Ipswich Queensland on February 26th, 2009 and I will share the adventure... I think you will find it instructional.

As Ipswich is a $100 taxi fare away from airport I decide to hire a car.

My preference has been Avis Car Rental. I decided to hire a car this trip with taxi fares likely to run to more than $100 each way. So, being a special Avis client - Wizard Card - after getting through Qantas check in - very pleasant lady looked after me, I checked on the one day hire rate for a car at the Perth counter.

Small manual unlimited kilometres was $56 for day with a $2,650 EXCESS. I am surrounded with less companies saying $26 a day and decided that they really didn't want my money tonight and left it... "What would it cost to remove the excess??" "$35 plus GST"

naah I will try in Brisbane.

  1. Do you get a commission back when you rent your car from Avis? I can set you up with a website that not only guarantees the best price on car rentals, hotels, vacations, etc, but pays you a commission every time you book through your own site...nice concept!
