Update on our hire car situation.

I'm still continuing to get emails about our personal problem with the hire car company in Tasmania….

Thank you all, our problems pale into insignificance considering the terrible suffering of others.

However I felt that I should be fair and let you all know that this statement is now on their web site and I thank them very much for their consideration.


"Response to Tasmanian bush fires


Customers who have rented from Bargain Car Rentals in Tasmania and have had to abandon their vehicles in the Tasman Peninsula area due to the fire crisis and road closures should return their keys to one of our offices as soon as practical.

All costs in retrieving vehicles from these areas will be absorbed by Bargain Car Rentals.

Further, our heart goes to all those that have lost so much and we are prepared as a business to stand with you and your families as we rebuild the affected areas and do whatever we can to see communities get back on their feet.

To all the emergency services personnel – we thank you for your tireless efforts and appreciate all you do in these tough times."
