Good but that insurance!Pros:I booked the car as soon as we landed at the Cairns airport and it was ready in 10 minutes. The car had under 1900km so pretty new. No problems during the week and the return was seem less.Cons:By far the insurance that they try to sell you and the scare tactics they use to get you to buy into it...Reviewed May 20 2017
