This is a list of car hire companies mentioned at the Attendees mailing list.

Note that when hiring a car in Australia all drivers usually must be 25 years or older. Some companies allow drivers of 21–24 years of age for an extra fee. Very few allow drivers under 21 years or any drivers holding Australian provisional (novice) licences.

Car rentals will come with insurance, but the insurance will usually be subject to excess penalties of approximately $3000 in any accident. You can upgrade the insurance (reducing the excess to about $200) for approximately $20 extra per day.

If you're not returning your car to the same venue you picked it up from, expect to pay substantial one way hire fees on top of the base price.
