Mini car rentals were fantastic. Very efficient under very difficult circumstances. Hardly any cars were available in cairns but this company managed to come up with a vehicle for us and not at such a heavily inflated price as others. They are constantly flat out on the phone and with email enquiries. Despite this they went to a lot of trouble to return a pair of sunglasses to me. I did not even know I had left them in the car until they contacted me. So grateful for the trouble they went to to get them back to me.
Due to issues with travel through Victoria I was forced to cancel my trip to Cairns, and duly my car rental at short notice, as well as make several changes prior to that. The team at Mini Car Rentals went out of their way to help me, absolutely faultless. I implore anyone looking to rent a car in Cairns, try those guys first. Five star service, thanks
We had a fantastic experience with Mini Car Rentals! The staff were very helpful, knowledgeable and professional. We had a problem free trip and will definitely be recommending Mini Car Rentals to any friends who go on holiday to cairns! We even received a bottle of champagne as we were on our honeymoon. Thanks Mike, Anne & Phoebe!
