Where on earth and what car are you paying $110 a day for? Maybe if you rock up to the airport and ask for a car that day. I just paid $750 for 10 days in QLD for a SUV and that was only because I left it it until 2 weeks out to book.Car and motorhome rental is getting out of hand, and even accommodation. I just saw a listing for a very and I mean very basic hotel at over $300pn despite regular rates at $110.
Who here would pay $450 per day for a standard motor home. Just looked it up and for 7 days minimum, everything around $3000 - $3300
7 days car rental would be $700 add to accommodation and it comes to no more than $2100. I get supply and demand and the fact that the rental industry went stupid offloading assets during 2020 but surely nobody is dumb enough to spend that sort of money. So big question: Why are prices this high?
18 months ago the rate for rental cars was $40ish per day. Now they're about $110ish per day.
It's definitely getting to the point that I'd just hire the cheapest car and sleep in it
