DESPERATE OZSTOC MEMBER!!!!
« on: December 08, 2020, 02:12:32 PM »
In my wisdom I've booked a week in away in the new year to celebrate my wedding anniversary with my wife flying into Launceston on 3 Jan and leaving the same on 9 Jan. My MASSIVE issue is that every single hire car company is fully booked out because of borders opening and even the Spirit of TAS was full weeks ago. If there are any locals, that are also members that may know of anyone locally who would possibly hire a vehicle out for the week It would be most appreciated. Realise I probably wont get anything, but had to try. Thanks in advance, NATMAN

Thinking outside the box.

Have you tried hiring a motorhome? That's a great way to play tourist.

Have tried hiring a motorcycle?

Mmmm ... it was only 18 months back when returning to Launceston airport that I notice how many hire car companies and hire cars that lined the airport approaches, and thinking I wonder if they ever hire all these car out?  Well now I know.

Motorcycling - the best time you can have with your clothes on.

Afterlife - up there for the climate, down there for the company.

If I'd known that I was gunna live this long, I woulda looked after myself better.

Yes, tried that also and everything is booked up. AVIS offered us a Hyundai i20 from 4th - 9th for $400 a day!

One day you will wake up and there won't be anymore time to do the things you've always wanted so do them NOW!!!
Remember there are 7 days in a week and Someday isn't one of them!

This may be an option, then just give it away

Lateral thinking, but ... 5 / 6 days not as easy to justify as a coupla weeks.

I might be able to help out with some wheels Natman. How does a turbo AWD with full leather interior sound?
Will check it off with the other half first to make sure all okay and I haven't forgotten anything.  Stay tuned.
