Beautiful trip marred by hire car problems

by Diana
(Melbourne )

We recently traveled from Darwin to Broome, using Australian 4WD Hire. The trip was amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed the scenic walks and swims at the gorges, and the beautiful countryside. We experienced car problems early on and the trip turned into a disappointing and costly experience! Please read car hire contracts very carefully and pull out early if you experience problems with hire cars.

We were stranded in Kununurra and what could have resulted in a disastrous holiday was saved by the helpful and professional team at Budget Kununurra. Our itinerary changed dramatically due to no fault of our own, but we managed to see most of the key tourist sights. We want to go back but next time will make sure we reasearch every angle of the car hire industry before we go.
