#cheap truck rental
Our standard rates include 500 kilometres per day for passenger vehicles and 100 kilometres per day for commercial vehicles (unless specified). The kilometres are cumulatively (i.e. 7-day hire of a passenger vehicle would give you 3500 kms of included use). Extra kilometres are charged at 27cents per km.
Our Price Guarantee does not apply during school holidays or public holidays.
All full current Australian and overseas or international licences printed in English are accepted. Drivers are to be a minimum age of 21 years old. Drivers between the age of 21 and 24 will incur a daily underage fee of $21 a day and are restricted to vehicle size (standard sedan category).
Please note if you live within a 150kms radius of the office you are collecting the vehicle from you must bring two (2) forms of ID. This can include your drivers licence as long as it has your current address, plus a phone bill, electricity bill or bank statement. If your drivers licence does not have your current address you are required to bring three (3) forms of ID two (2) of these must have the same current address. If you cannot provide this Alpha Car Hire cannot rent you a vehicle.
At the time of rental please have your current drivers licence and credit card with you. We require the cost of the rental plus a pre-authorisation of $100 for a passenger vehicles or $200 for commercial vehicles on your credit card as a security bond. If you are using a debit credit card for the bond please ensure that you have enough available funds equal to the vehicles excess at the time of vehicle pick up (eg. if you choose not to reduce your excess from $3300 then you will need to have $3300 available on your debit credit card on top of your rental charges). The hirer’s credit card must authorise for this amount for the vehicle to be rented. The security bond is held throughout the rental period and returned in full if no further charges apply (this is completed automatically by your bank).
We accept Visa, Mastercard and Eftpos. Unfortunately we do not accept AMEX Diners. Please note that Alpha will apply a credit card surcharge of 1.65% for Visa and Master Card. This is not included in the quoted price and will be applied at the time of collection.
