Friendly service at short notice. Good car and even offered to book tours at discounted price. Office has city centre location, so car collection and drop off was easy. We noticed that other... so-called 'cheaper' car rental places often charge by the kilometre and have other hidden costs, but at this place, rate for the one day was simple and transparent without hidden add-on charges. Would happily use Mini Car Rentals next time we're in Cairns.read more

[It was comfortable from reservation to return! ]I had a hard time arranging a rental car in Cairns, but I was able to make a reservation 2-3 days in advance. On the day of the event, there were... instructions in Japanese, and the process was easy to understand and went smoothly. When I returned the car at night, I entered the password I had heard in advance, opened the gate, parked the car in the parking lot, and put the key in the mailbox. The exterior of the car was not as good as other companies' cars, but the interior was clean and there were no problems in using it. There is no car navigation system, so a smartphone is required.read more

I used it on June 27th.Unfortunately, there were no staff members who could speak Japanese, so I was nervous because I wanted to ask them a lot of questions, but I got a map and started reading the... guidebook written in Japanese for return instructions and precautions.We enjoyed driving north along the coastline, mainly in Cairns, visiting Port Douglas in the north, then Mareeba in the southwest, the Atherton Plateau, Fig Tree, and Mira Mira Falls.Unfortunately, the weather was not good.Also, the only disappointing thing was that I rented a MAZDA CX3, but there was something like an oil film on the windshield, so I had to use the air conditioner and wipers in the rain to prevent the glass from fogging up, which made it hard to see. Ta. It was especially difficult to see at night.read more

First trip to Australia.I searched all over the internet for cheap rental cars, but after watching the Cairns channel on YouTube, I decided on this one!Book directly from Japan via the... homepage.When I checked in, the Japanese girl from YouTube wasn't there, but the friendly store staff helped me out.I was told that the grade I had reserved was not available, so I prepared a car that was a step up.The car looks like a Niconico rental car in Japan.There are a few small scratches and dents that I personally don't care about.The store clerk at that time may have some scratches, too! (That's how I understood it based on my English ability.)Nowadays, I use a tablet to take pictures of the condition before I leave, so I feel more at ease.A Japanese girl was there when I returned it.Return with confidence.The day after Green Island tourI decided to rent it here for one more day.The service took me to the hotel.Good luck, working holiday girl!remarks.. Is there Australia?It seems that the big white card reading terminal and AMEX are not compatible. The first one didn't work, but the second one finally got it authenticated!.. I promised to pick you up at the hotel next time.The next day I received an email saying that this was not possible.I didn't mind walking to the office, so I took a leisurely morning walk.Please check and reply to emails frequently... At the second drop-off, the landlady complained that she didn't know the password to return the deposit... Is it because your hands are free? As per the website, they sent me to Cairns Airport for $20.However, the landlady dropped me off at the domestic terminal.Thanks to this, I was able to enjoy Cairns Airport to the international terminal.That's why I gave it 4 stars.NoteIt was my fault for not checking the meter, but gas stations in Cairns don't fill up in one go like they do in Japan.Follow up with gas and be sure to check the meter!One memory was missing and an additional charge of $20 was incurred.read more

I made a reservation on the QEEQ website.When I wanted someone to pick me up at the airport, I had to call them after arriving, and I had a hard time figuring out how to call.I managed to get in... touch with him and even though I could only speak broken English, he came to pick me up at the airport.Perhaps because I arrived early in the morning, there were no Japanese staff members, but I was able to manage with a translation app.I rented an 8-seater car, but on the day I returned home, I dropped my family off at the airport.I returned to the store and had the option of having just me taken to the airport.(The capacity is 8 people, and if you send the whole family to the airport, the total number of staff will be 9.)Cars are a necessity in Australia, and they were very useful.I'm glad I was able to rent it cheaply.read more

They are very kind and helpful, so I can highly recommend them.・Japanese staff responded politely in Japanese. You can rest assured that the local people will of course take care of you... carefully.・Since I had time this time, I was able to pick up and drop off at the hotel. You can check the traffic rules (it's a good idea to check the rules for right turn signals and on-street parking).・Car returns are available 24 hours a day, and nearby gas stations are also open 24 hours a day, so you can enjoy your drive without worrying about time. If the trip home takes longer than expected, you can go out to dinner by car, or go for an early morning drive.read more

Well every interaction with people from mini car rentals was fantastic. The car they provided us was in great condition. It was clean, well maintained and fairly new models. I book two different cars... for two days. They also fixed my wrong booking without any extra charges. I won’t hesitate to book car from them again. In summary here are reasons.1) Highly professional and friendly2) recent model cars in great conditions with affordable pricing3) responsive and helpful4) returned the deposit money without any fussAlso a general advice don’t book cheap cars if you planning to travel rural parts of Queensland. They might break down and it might ruin your holiday. Go with recent car models, go with mini car rentals.read more

I rented a car here for one day.The staff were kind and friendly, and I was able to use it with confidence.This rental car shop is open until 5pm, but the good thing is that you can return your car... after 5pm.Generally, you rent a car by the day, but here you can just return it by 8am the next day, so I was really grateful that I didn't have to worry about time.Also,I think anyone who drives a car in Japan can drive in Cairns without any problems.I think you can enjoy Cairns much more if you have a rental car, so please do your best to encourage more Japanese people to rent a car and enjoy the charm of Cairns even more!I would like to ask MINI CAR RENTALS when I come to Cairns again.I'm really thankful to you! ️read more

Even though we had a slight hiccup when being picked up from cruise terminal, I would highly recommend this family run business. Everyone we dealt with from initial booking to returning the car were... very friendly and helpful. Pick-up and drop-off service available, reasonable price with no hidden extras (like I experienced recently at a large company in Sydney). Car ran well even with the air-con on full most of the time. I would use Mini Car Rentals again if in Cairns and will recommend to anyone I know travelling there. Thank youread more

The staff of Mini Car Rentals were always very professional and friendly when I contacted them re renting a vehicle to drive to tourist attractions near Cairns. They organised a suitable vehicle and... informed me regularly by email of the rental details. The staff delivered the vehicle to my hotel and even drove my friend and I to the Marina when we returned the vehicle. The cost was reasonable, the staff provided helpful information regarding various tourist attractions and their location on Sheridan Street was convenient. I would recommend this family run company to anyone looking for a rental car in the heart of Cairns.read more

This car hire company offers relatively inexpensive car hire in Cairns and the staff are very friendly. The staff were very friendly and helpful, even when a Japanese person whose English is not so... good suddenly visited them to make a reservation. We used the car to enjoy Atherton Tablelands and Palonera Park. The information given by the staff was useful. We also appreciated the system that allowed us to return the car outside of office hours. Furthermore, we receive e-mails every step of the way with booking details and insurance correspondence.Japanese staff are currently working there, so even Japanese people who are worried about local driving and language can rent a car with peace of mind. Thank you for telling us about the cheapest petrol station.We had an enjoyable trip. We will use your service again next time we go to Cairns.read more

I rented a car for one day for a family trip.Free pickup from your hotel or airport + transfer to the airport for $20 (reservation required, staff will kindly advise you over the phone)Mini Car... Rental has a blog in Japanese that explains how to rent and return a rental car, so if you read it in advance, you can rent it with peace of mind.There was also a Japanese staff member, who taught me about things I was worried about, such as how to fill up with gas.☺You can rent with confidence~👌I asked for a transfer to the airport, and the driver was a very cheerful person, and I was very happy that he cared about my family. (Apparently it was the store manager's father)If you are thinking of traveling to Cairns, we highly recommend mini car rental 👌read more

we hired a car with mini car rentals for a couple of days last week after picking up their brochure from our accommodation southern cross atrium apartments in cairns. i actually called them as i... find it much more personal as not very 'online' with many things. we rang just on closing time but it was still no trouble to take our booking and we were also fortunate to be picked up from our accommodation and taken to the depot to collect our car by mike who also took us back after we returned the car. the car was great and overall the process was so very efficient and friendly by all staff that helped us. would definately use again and recommend to anyone. sorry i cant remember everyones name there at mini but thank you so much to all for looking after us. loved our stay in cairns, now back in somewhat colder geelong! tracy and robbie.read more
