So, hiring a car.
I never thought I'd have to. But I'm gonna have to... and I'm actually looking forward to flogging the ever-loving piss out of a Camry or something similar.
I just have a small (read: Big) problem. I'm 18, on my P's, don't have a credit card and need to travel about 500km's out of a CBD.
Anyway, I'm flying to Brisvegas on the 14th of November and need a car until the 17th to get out to Roma and back. Most places I've checked out on the net (Budget, Red Spot, Pegasus) either have 'Max 150km's out of CBD' or 'Need Certificate of Currency'.
I've asked for a Quote (and even a consideration) from ACE rentals, seeing as they're the only one I've found (in about 30min searching) where the Manager will negotiate terms and consider things on a case basis.
I'll gladly pay excess insurance coverage, and a $1000 cash deposit to be returned when the car is. But I'm yet to recieve an answer.
So can anyone recommend any companies that will hire out to a P-plater? Or anyone that has had some luck in a similar situation to my own?
I never thought it would be this much of a pain in the arse.
Thanks for help in advance.
