I have used this company in Cairns before and been satisfied. Booked an SUV (Mitsubishi Outlander or similar) and got a reasonably new Hyundai Tucson, which I suppose was fair enough. Their airport offices are off-site but they offer a shuttle service to/from the respective airports. I imagine this is a limited offer, and given the price of flights to Cairns and the cost of hiring a car there vs. the price of flights to Brisbane with the opportunity of getting a car for $9 a day and being able to visit a few places along the way that I've not been to before, I have taken this offer up and can confirm the pricing is correct.
