When it comes to short term car hire, we understand that plans can change and we accommodate for this within our rental terms. Whether you are on holiday, waiting for a car repair, waiting for a new car, travelling for work or waiting on an insurance claim, you do not have to provide us with fixed contract dates and we guarantee that you can reduce or extend your short term car rental with no minimum notice period.

Providing customers with flexibility and a stress-free renting experience are the key pillars at Long Term Car Rental. Our terms give you the assurance that you will not be left without transport if your short term car hire goes longer than expected. We will even retrospectively reduce your rate if you end up qualifying for our longer term discounts. Alternatively, if your circumstances change and you need to return your short term car rental earlier than expected, we do not charge any cancellation/modification fees and will refund you for any unused days along with your bond.

Short-Term Car Rental for Personal or Commercial Use

Our short term car hire is available for both personal and commercial use. For businesses, this is the perfect solution for seasonal employees, contractors or overseas consultants as vehicles can be easily returned when they are no longer needed with no unnecessary hassle! For business accounts, if short term rentals are required quite frequently we can also negotiate a discounted rate for repeat business.

Short term car rental can be beneficial for private use in a range of circumstances, whether for pleasure or necessity! A lot of clients opt for a short term car hire when visiting Brisbane or going on a road trip, as having a comfortable and reliable vehicle is paramount when driving long distances with friends or family. A short term car rental provides you with the freedom and independence to explore your holiday destination at your own leisure, without having to rely on public transport. Furthermore, it gives you peace of mind that the vehicle you and your family are driving in is safe, roadworthy, mechanically inspected, serviced on time and near new.

Other instances where a short-term car rental can come in very handy are for those moments where everything has not quite gone to plan! We can arrange a short term car hire on the same day of enquiry if your vehicle has broken down or been involved in an accident. We understand there are many delays at this time on car repairs, parts, panel work and supply of new vehicles, so we offer flexible end dates to ensure that your short-term car rental is one less thing for you to worry about!
