If you are crossing a boarder, be aware you may have to apply for a boarder pass. If the boarders are closed due to COVID19 please do not attempt to cross them with our vehicles.
We have decided that Fraser Island and Moreton Island are off limits with our vehicles. From experience we know if something goes wrong you will be stranded there and our insurance won't cover it.
Q. How many Kilometres am I aloud on my trip?
A. 200km a day! So, for example if you are hiring for 5 days you have 1000km of travel distance. You will be charged an extra 40c for every extra km you go over the limit. We suggest if you want to travel further, book for more days so you can get the most out of your adventure.
