Tourism Talk. I've been on the phone constantly this morning…. I contacted the hire car company who said we will be charged for the car if we leave it at the evacuation point near the fires here in Tasmania.
He said "If you hire a car, its the same as your car" you are responsible for it.
I mentioned the extreme prices they charged because we had to hire it at the last minute. $150 per day for a tiny Hyundai Getz, in a less than salubrious state.
"We only get $20 a day in winter" he stated "we have to make it up some way"
So much for fairness, particularly when they charged $50 more a day than the other companies.
I will write a long blog about the events we find ourselves in… in an hour or so.
