You are actually booking a car with us – not simply making an online reservation with a web wholesaler or a comparison site that takes your reservation fee and then passes the booking on to an actual rental car company that has it’s own set of hiring conditions…and charges.

You will meet us when we personally deliver the car to you and you can discuss any points about the hire contract or the vehicle with us.

Noosa Car Rentals hires/rents to people over the age of 25 years with a full driver’s licence held for at least 2 years. We value the experience of drivers over the age of 85, but are required to meet certain conditions of our insurance company. These conditions include a limitation in the area of use to within 100 kilometre radius of Noosa, increasing the collision damage excess reduction to $3000 and emailing to our insurance company the driver’s details.

Vehicles must remain within a 300 kilometres radius of Noosa unless otherwise negotiated and indicated on the front page of the rental agreement, otherwise all excesses and waivers will be void due to a breach of contract. Please check if you are unsure if your destination falls within this area of use.

Cancellations of bookings must be made at least 24 hours prior to commencement date and time. Cancellation after this date and time will incur an administration fee equivalent to a 1 day rental fee for the applicable vehicle. The current cancellation fee for a Corolla/i30 is $100 and for a Yaris/Accent Hatch $90

Child restraints can be provided for a small fee. Responsibility for choosing the type of seat and ensuring the security of the fitting of the seat is the hirers/renters. Loss of or damage to the same is the hirers/renters responsibility and liability.

Child restraints that can be provided:

Rear Facing, bolt-in baby seat from new born to approximately 6 months (weight of 9kg and maximum length of 700mm)

Front Facing bolt-in baby seat for approximately 6 months to 3 years (weight of 8-18kg)

* Please note that Queensland Law requires children up to the age of 7 years old to be correctly restrained according to their size and age.

At the airport, a Noosa Car Rentals staff member will meet you as you come into the baggage claim area. We will be wearing a uniform with a Noosa Car Rentals logo and will be holding a welcome sign with your surname on it.

We will complete the paper work with you, help you to your car with the bags and provide directions if you need them.

Vehicles returning to the airport must be parked in the short-term car park marked on the map provided in each car’s glovebox. The procedure for leaving the car will be explained in person and is also marked out on the information card in the glovebox on the back of the airport parking map.

A free delivery and pickup service is available in the Noosa Region. A charge may apply to areas outside 5kms from Noosa. This can be discussed with the Noosa Car Rentals staff at the time of booking.

Payment for the full amount of the hire/rental will be charged to the credit card supplied 24 hours prior to commencement of the hire/rental.

In order not to inconvenience the next renter of your vehicle, we ask you return your vehicle no later than the contracted time or a late fee may apply. Any intention to return late must be made known to our office. Damage/Loss cover will cease on the return time and date stipulated on your rental agreement unless otherwise agreed.

As we try to maintain a high standard of cleanliness in our fleet, all our cars are non smoking vehicles. If cars have been smoked in, a detailing fee will be charged at the renter’s expense.

A street directory covering the Sunshine Coast is available on request. We ask that these remain in the car as they are the property of Noosa Car Rentals. We also provide local Sunshine Coast maps which are free and you are welcome to take them with you.
