    Probably not a great idea to encourage random people to drive into the center of Australia without any preparation or knowledge.

      best to get private insurance for it.

      •  

        The issue with using a private insurer is that they will 'hold' $3000 from your card as bond.

      Do you have to feed and clothe the extra driver?

      The kind of people who road trip to Alice Springs aren't the same kind of people who fly into Alice Springs.

        I think he's talking about flying out of Alice Springs because whoever drives there would likely want to come back.

  •  

    Buried deep inside the T&C - unlimited kms but earliest time you can collect is 1pm, which burns most of the first day and $500 per day fee if you are late. Also steep fees for not returning the tank full.

    basically they just need some drivers free drop theirs car to Alice spring.
